Caring about conserving our natural resources equally as much as creating innovative and functional outdoor living structures, Archadeck of Northern Chicagoland now provides custom design and construction of sunroom additions along with its well established business of building custom decks and screen porches.
"If a client decides to add a sunroom, it is crucial to know how they envision using the room," states David Berryhill, local Archadeck owner and operator. Sunrooms can be built for year round use or for seasonal use. A family gathering place can be created in a sunroom or it can be used as a quiet retreat.
Once the client makes this decision about usage, the custom design element allows a homeowner to make energy efficient choices in the design and construction of a sunroom in a manner that is architecturally consistent with the style of the home.
When creating a four-season sunroom, energy efficiency becomes important. Berryhill comments, "there are many decisions we make that can impact the energy efficiency of a four season sunroom addition". The two options that have the biggest impact in energy efficiency in sunroom additions are the window type, size and placement as well as insulation. Consideration also needs to be given to options with include wall thickness, roof overhang and type, knee wall height and HVAC options also play a major role in constructing an energy efficient sunroom.
Today's sunroom additions do not need to fall in to the category of the old construction adage that "a sunroom is either the hottest room in the house or the coldest room in the house." Custom design allows the homeowner to create a living space where they are comfortable and that will provide a savings on energy costs.
