Q: What sort of things should I be aware of when planning a sunroom extension?
A: There’s a few things that you need to consider when contemplating a sunroom extension – or any extension to your home. First of all, be mindful of what the access is like to your home. Access is important because certain machinery will be required for excavation. Homeowners should also consider space, and whether or not existing structures (for instance, a deck), will need to be removed prior to installing an addition.
Q: Does my sunroom need a foundation?
A: Yes, your sunroom does need a foundation. While it doesn’t need a basement foundation, it does need something that is below the frost line, which is generally about four feet or so. The simpler alternative is to put down a post foundation. Another popular method is done through a helical pile.
