Once you have settled on having a sunroom installed on your property, you will find that you have a very large decision that needs to be made before sunroom installation can take place. When all of the plans for size and appearance are completed, and you have selected your roofing materials, you will have one final decision to make that will define the entire sunroom’s appearance: the vinyl use around your window designs.
The fact that your sunroom will let in the sun is a given. You will want plenty of open space so that you can let as much light in as possible. However, there may be areas along certain walls, or along your foundation area, that will need to have insulated vinyl siding installed in order to match the rest of your home’s exterior. When done right, these sections can increase the value of your already precious sunroom installation project.
The beauty of custom designed sunrooms is that they are customized to your own home and to your particular needs. In order to prevent awkward steps down, and to make the finished sunroom installation feel like a natural part of your home, many home owners are having their sunrooms raised to the level of their interior home floors. They are having their steps down placed outside the sunroom instead, if not having an entirely new exit built to this area elsewhere in the home.
Choosing to raise the floor in this manner will make the sunroom installation process produce a result that appears like a natural part of the home. However, the part beneath the floor level of the sunroom is going to require insulated vinyl siding in order to blend in with the rest of your home. Even if your home has a brick facade, the use of insulated vinyl siding will still look natural in this area, thanks to the insulated vinyl replacement windows that are built into your sunroom’s design.
If you choose to use your finished sunroom installation project as a statement on your property, you may choose to have the insulated vinyl siding and the vinyl framing of the windows in a bright color. This bright shade will create a statement on the outside of the sunroom, drawing attention to it and making it a centerpiece of your property. Since these modern vinyl installations are so easy to clean, and have the color baked into the material during the construction process, they will never fade.
Choosing to have the same insulated vinyl siding and accents along the entire sunroom will give the entire piece a weather resistant finish that will last for decades, just as the sunroom installation itself will. You will be able to enjoy your new sunroom from its raised level, and know that the insulated vinyl siding you chose around the base is helping to keep the heat in this area as well.
