As we covered, previously, a sun room actually increases your home’s overall square footage.  Why does this matter?  Dollar signs, to put it simply.  It is a given that the bigger your home is, the more you are going to sell it for. If you can offer a home for sale that is 4 bedrooms and three baths, as opposed to three bedrooms and three baths, you will find many buyers who are interested in buying, who otherwise wouldn’t have been with one room less. When you increase the size of your home, add square footage to it, and create a tasteful space which can be enjoyed by the inhabitants of the home, you will find it much easier to sell your home, especially in today’s competitive market.

So, if you are considering putting your home up for sale in the market, or if you are buying a home as an investment property and plan to sell it in the near future, adding an Arizona room is a great option to consider. It is an affordable addition, and when you hire the right contractor to add the room to the home, they will make it so that it enhances the appearance of the home, and attracts more people to see the home when you hold an open house. But what about if you want to keep your home?

Your Sun Room and a Better Home

It isn’t just for property values that you should install a sun room.  If you want to keep your home, then

Whether you want more space to enjoy the home with your family or simply want to add value to an investment property that you own, an Arizona room is a great way to do both of these things. By adding more square footage and an additional usable and livable space, you create a home which can be enjoyed by everyone, and gives everyone more space to enjoy different activities in the room. And, if you are simply planning on selling the property, the added space and bonus room, is something which will attract many buyers. Regardless of the reason you choose to add the room, these are the many returns you will receive on your investment, when you choose to add a sun room to your home.

Arizona’s Climate: Why an Arizona Room Makes Sense

Why An Arizona Room?

Why should you install an Arizona room?  Don’t we get enough sunshine already?

Arizona is, after all, a state in which the summers are harsh, and winters are mild. With the hot sun, long days, and humid temperatures, what greater way to add comfort to your home than by adding an Arizona room? In addition to making an otherwise unlivable outdoor space an area your family can enjoy, the room will also add value to your home and add usable square footage to the home. Therefore, it is a great addition to any home and can help increase the homeowner’s enjoyment of the space.

A sun room makes otherwise unusable space enjoyable. One major benefit of an Arizona room or a sun room  is the fact that it can be custom tailored to your home. It can be added over a patio space that is not currently being used, and it allows you to create a space which is enjoyable for your family. Make it a game room area for the kids to play, or a dining room area if you don’t currently have a space to eat meals with the family. You can also make it a gathering space to enjoy with family and friends. Regardless of the intended uses you have for the space, the enclosed space is going to allow you to enjoy the area of your home, and will give you an additional room to enter on the hottest days of the year.

Add Space to  Your Home With a Sun Room

Add square footage to a home. If you are having an unexpected guest or family member come back home to live with you, or if you otherwise need a space for a new gym or TV room, you can add square footage to the home, without having to diminish the size of other rooms in the home with an Arizona room. The fact that you are adding this room to the home, allows you to attach it to the side of your home and expand the entire area.

It also gives you additional, livable space, so you can create a room for any purpose, or new addition which you were not expecting when you initially bought your home. If you love your current home, and can’t seem to part ways, but it is too small for your new family, installing a sun room is the perfect solution to your problem!

Uses for a Sun Room

There are a lot of uses for a sun room once you’ve installed one.  First off, though, let’s look at some historical ways that sun rooms have been used.

Sun Room Use #1 The Classic Solarium

One of the uses of a sun room is to make it a solarium. What’s a solarium? According to Wikipedia:
“A solarium, is similar to a sunroom in that both are glass structures designed for people to enjoy the sun without being directly touched by the rays of the sun. The chief difference is that solaria often have curved glass corners and glass roofs. The term solarium is used to describe the large, glass rooms found on the rear of cruise ships for several cruise lines, including Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruise Lines and Celebrity Cruises. In addition, solaria are often used for growing crops…”Read More

Sometimes solariums are great places to have plants.  You can have cacti, ferns and other sun-loving plants in your solarium, as well as places to sit down and read or have something to drink, or maybe even a light lunch.  A Solarium is made of  a glass roof and walls. Solariums are sometimes called conservatories as well. When you’re using a sun room as a solarium, you want as much light to come in as possible.   Solariums are often used in commercial applications such as cruise ships and , restaurants among other places.

Things to Note About a Sun Room or Solarium

Solariums and sun rooms were very popular during pre-WWII Europe, however, be aware that in Arizona they present unique challenges that have to be addressed.  For one thing, you want to make sure that you call a professional company to install a sun room.  They will be able to help you place it properly so it isn’t in the shadow all the time and if it is in Arizona’s full sun that there is a ventilation system, or series of ceiling fans.  Otherwise, the heat can be overpowering in a sun room in Arizona.  Another thing you want to consider is the materials that you’re going to use.  Vinyl is often used as is solarized glass.  Make sure that you go over the options available with your installer.

A solarium brings back a more elegant time.  It calls to mind the glories of the British Empire, and beautiful manor homes.  So you can add a touch of elegance to your home as well.  Install a sun room in Phoenix today.

Arizona Rooms and the Winter Months

With fall and winter just around the corner, you may wish to think about installing an Arizona room.

Install an Arizona Room

Why Get an Arizona Room?

For one, an Arizona room is the best of both worlds.  You get the sunlight, and a warm place to sit during the winter.  At night, you can see the stars as well.

Adding an Arizona room makes  your home more elegant and in addition it increases your home’s resale value.  That is because of how versatile these rooms are.   They’re great for home theaters, and great places to entertain guests in.

Arizona Room Construction

Like all rooms, Arizona rooms are comprised of a frame, windows, and a supporting structure.   A key thing to note about installing these rooms is that you want to consider both the summer and winter sunshine.  If your home’s north side is in the shade in winter, an Arizona room may not work there. And you also have to be careful of the Arizona sun too.  Placing it on the southern exposure of your home is also risky as it may get too hot.

If you live somewhere colder, you want to make sure your sun room can withstand colder temperatures so that you can enjoy it all year round. If you plan to use it only in warmer months then you’re probably going to use different materials.  You also want to consider your home’s style as well, and which style of room would work best for your home.  Do you want a vaulted roof, or a flat one?  How about methods to keep it cool?

Adding fans and vents can help to cool your Arizona room in the warmer months.  You may also wish to consider getting tinted, reflective glass to help control some of the sunlight that is coming in.  Arizona rooms are also good home improvements, and add to your home’s square footage.  They also add to your home’s resale value as we covered already.

So to get the room you want installed, know some things first.  Are you going to change an existing room, or add a brand new room?  What is your budget that you have to work with?  Finally, where are you going to put it?  Once you have all of these questions answered, then it is simply a matter of calling a company that installs Arizona Rooms.

An Arizona Room: Host a Comfortable Summer Party

Get an Arizona Room Installed in Phoenix

An Arizona room is a great place to host a cool summer get together.  Here are some great party ideas.

An Arizona Room and Summer Parties

The NBA playoffs finished a few months ago.  The World Cup is over, and Germany is the winner.  However, while soccer is done, there are still other sports if you are a sports nut, all with events coming up in the next few weeks.  For example, the World Series is coming up in the next month and a half, as is football season.  However, if you’re not a sports person, maybe you just want an excuse to get together with your friends and family, and one place to do so is an Arizona Room.

An Arizona Room allows you to enjoy the sunlight and each other’s company while keeping the oppressive heat off of you and your guests. Maybe you could have a big potluck and B.Y.O.B. party.  Everyone can sample all the goodies that your guests and you have brought to the table, and you’ll get a reputation of being a convivial host or hostess.  Why does a sun room help?  Well, it is all about location.

A Sun Room and a Great Party

It is a combination of things that separate a forgettable party from one that people remember forever.  First off, you’re going to need really good food.  And by really good food, we’re not referring to cheap grocery store pizza and chips.  You’re going to want a couple of crock pots going.  You can still have cheap grocery store pizza and chips if you want, but add something that stays hot and is very tasty. Try to keep party rules to a minimum, and don’t let any party themes overpower the party.  As for music, know your guests.  If your guests are all young twenty somethings, old music is probably not the best choice.  Inversely, if your guests are all in their 40’s and up, then you want to make sure that you play something that vibes with them too.  Next, you’re going to need a lot to drink.  And by drinks we’re not referring to buying a carton of bottled water.  If you don’t drink alcohol that’s fine, however, give yourself and your guests something nice to drink.  Maybe make a nice ice cream punch, or something cool and tropical like pineapple juice smoothies in the blender.   But what does this have to do with installing a sun room?

Well, the final thing that you must have in order to have a truly great party is the location.  Without a place that is designed for conversation, your party will be soon forgotten.  And one of the best locations is in your home itself. Or it could be, if you install an Arizona room.

For more uses for an Arizona room, be sure to read our previous post.

For more information on using the sun to your advantage, be sure to read our solar power article as well.

This time of year, it is monsoon season. The bad news is that it is going to be both hot and humid from now until September, but the good news is that there is a lot of very beautiful things to see in the sky. One thing is the way the sky looks.  Arizona sunsets are rather famous, and they deserve to be.  In a lot of other places where the sunset is a narrow band in the west, in Arizona the entire sky can change into shades of orange, red, purple and gold.  Think of how much prettier it would be if you were in a recliner looking up at the windows of your Arizona room.  However, it isn’t just the sunsets you can enjoy.  There are a lot of astronomical phenomena to see as well.

First off, on July 12th-13th 2014, there is going to be a Super Moon, namely where the moon is very bright and close to the earth. Think of how beautiful it would be to watch the moon rise in your Arizona room. Turn all the lights out and watch the celestial show. However, the moon is one celestial event that it would be fun to watch in the comfort of an Arizona room.

Even if you don’t have a telescope, an Arizona Room is also a great place to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower. According to the American Meteor Society: “The Perseids are the most popular meteor shower as they peak on warm August nights as seen from the northern hemisphere. The Perseids are active from July 13 to August 26. They reach a strong maximum on August 12 or 13, depending on the year. Normal rates seen from rural locations range from 50-75 shower members per hour at maximum.” [READ MORE]

Avoid Heat Related Illness Part 2: Arizona Room Installation

Part two of our series will explore how Arizona room installation can also help to reduce the risk of heat-related illness.

An Arizona Room: The Bridge Between Hot and Comfortable

Happy Independence Day from your Patio Cover Installer | (480) 926-2300
Happy Independence Day from your Patio Cover Installer | (480) 926-2300

It is Independence Day.  Want a great place to watch the fireworks if you live near downtown Mesa?  Install an Arizona room.  Why? Well, in case you haven’t noticed, at this time of year, Arizona is hot.  No sugarcoating, no saying “but it is a dry heat,” none of that.  It is hot here.  And with heat comes increased risk of heat-related illness.  Heat exhaustion, heat syncope, and even heat stroke can all be traced to exposure to heat.

Our last article explored installing patio covers.  However, an Arizona room is also a viable way of reducing heat exposure and heat-related illness.  You can cool an Arizona room, while still getting the health benefits of healthy exposure to the sun. And yes, you do need some sunlight after all.

Arizona Rooms: Exposure to Sunlight, Not The Heat

You need some sunlight after all.  Sunlight helps to fight depression, and helps your body to produce vitamin A and D, which you can only get naturally from either exposure to sunlight or by eating green leafy vegetables.  So, have yourself a nice spinach salad, and eat it in your Arizona Room.   And like we said before, it is a great place to watch the fireworks.

An Arizona room is made of high tech glass that helps to reflect some of the sun, while still providing natural light to your home.  As a result, you can see the sky.  And with seeing the sky, you can also watch the fireworks if you’re in the right spots of the valley.  You can watch the fireworks in Mesa, sitting in comfort while a lot of people are dripping sweat for hours on end.  Our next article in our series will explore the fun that you can have with a sun room, but for now, you can consider the way fireworks will look on your own big screen above you.

So remember, you want to control your exposure to extreme temperatures.  So keep your body hydrated, and don’t go out in the hottest part of the day.  Find ways of coping with the heat, such as cool drinks, and swimming in a pool. And don’t forget one more possible solution to consider:  installing an Arizona Room  in Mesa.

Read our next article for more ways to use an Arizona room.

Arizona Room or Patio Cover: Which One’s Best Pt 3

Part three of our series on Arizona rooms and patio covers explores some final thoughts about both of these home additions.

So Which One’s Better? An Arizona Room or a Patio Cover?

Call today to install an Arizona room or patio covers | (480) 926-2300

Everyone has their own opinion about which one is better: an Arizona room, or a patio cover.  The answer to the question however, depends on several factors including your budget, your living space, and your own individual needs.

For someone living in say a manufactured home, an Arizona room may not be the best idea, unless you can get someone to match your existing home.  And you also have to remember, that it adds to your square footage.  That’s why such solutions work best for homes with more land and more overall space around them.

Should a Patio Cover Be Put Only in  a Manufactured Home?

A patio cover is versatile, actually a bit more versatile than a sun room is.  So you could install a cover for a fancy home, or a modest manufactured one.  It also depends on your needs and your taste.  If you want open space, then you want a patio cover, if you want it closed off, then you’ll want a sun room.  Before you do either, however, make sure you know what you want, and what is within your budget.

You don’t want a project half done because you run out of money.  Nor do you want to get a project started only to have to scrap it later on because you decided for another option.  So, use your head, and crunch some numbers.  Then you will be able to get the solution you want, whether that is a patio cover or an Arizona room.

This concludes part three of our series on patio covers. Be sure to read  part one and part two as well.

Arizona Room or Patio Cover: Which One’s Best Pt 2

Part two of our series on Arizona rooms and patio covers explores their uses in homes in the Southwest.

Life in the Southwest:  Keep it Cool with a Patio Cover or Arizona Room

Call for Installation of Solid Patio Covers | (480) 926-2300

If you live in Mesa, for example, did you know that you are safe from a lot of dangerous natural disasters?  It’s true.  Because it is located on a raised plateau or mesa, it is free from large scale floods.  There are no earthquake faults anywhere nearby, hurricanes are extremely rare, as are tornadoes, and being located in the Sun Belt, blizzards are obviously not a problem that you’ll have to ever contend with.  However, there is one problem you have to be aware of and this problem requires a way to deal with it, namely a sun room or a patio cover.  That problem?  Heat related illness of course.

With temperatures averaging 100 degrees or hotter during summer, you will need to protect yourself from the sun.  While sunscreen will obviously protect you from UV rays, what about heat related illness.  Well, first off, keep hydrated.  One of the things that is dangerous about exposure to too much heat is that the moisture is baked out of a person.  But another thing that is something you must do is to reduce your exposure to heat first, and using an Arizona room or patio cover is one way to do this.

How Can a Patio Cover or Arizona Room Help?

Well, both of them can reduce your exposure to heat significantly.  An Arizona room by 90%, a patio cover by 60%.  So that reduction can literally make the difference between life and death.

So, remember, if you live in Arizona, make sure you keep your cool.  One of the best ways to do this is to install an Arizona room or a patio cover.

This concludes part one of our series on patio covers. Be sure to read part two and part three as well.
