When meeting with potential clients for a sunroom addition, one of the more frequently asked questions is how long does it take to build a sunroom addition. There are many ways to answer this question, but one of the factors is what type of sunroom addition is it? Is it a conventionally built sunroom to match your existing home, or is it one of the prefabricated sunroom additions.
A conventionally built sunroom addition can vary in the amount of time it takes to build based on a couple of factors. One is the weather. Another factor is whether or not the adjoining wall is being opened up to blend the sunroom addition in with the rest of the house. Until the sunroom addition is up framed and roofed, the weather can play a major role in how long it takes to complete. Generally speaking though, once the foundation is in, we figure about thirty days to completion of each sunroom we build. J & S Builders only builds conventionally (or stick built) additions of all types.
A prefabricated sunroom can be put together a little faster than a conventionally built sunroom addition. This type of addition is usually complete in a couple of weeks depending on the type of foundation. In many instances this type of sunroom addition is placed on top of an existing deck, which reduces the amount of time it takes to assemble the addition, and rarely is the sunroom addition opened up to the rest of the house other than a simple doorway. Prefab sunroom additions might go up faster, but they still take time having the panels and such manufactured in a facility typically in another state, and then shipped in by truck. In the end, it can take about the same amount of time to completion.
How long it takes to build a sunroom addition in the end doesn’t seem to matter as much as some other factors. Only you can decide which type of sunroom addition is a better fit for you, your home or your neighborhood. Some of the things to think about are which type of sunroom addition can be customized to meet your dreams, your home, and give you the most options.
