Screen Repairs and Screen Rooms in Clearwater, Tarpon Springs and Naples, FL

What should you know before building a screen room or a sun room?

Are you going through a home renovation project, and you do not know what to choose between a sun porch, and a screen room? If your answer to this question is yes, then you should continue reading this article in order to find out what does such a project involve.

In this article we will present you everything there is to know about these two structures when it comes to permitting, electric, and, maybe the most important factor: price. First of all we will talk about the costs of building such structures. When it comes to costs, the cheapest solution would be installing a screen room. This is due to the fact that, with a sun room, the sliding glass doors can be quite expensive, unlike the ordinary ones that are used to build screen rooms.

Because both these structures represent extra living spaces added to your house, these projects require building permits. As a consequence, you will have to get your home re-assessed, which most of the times ends with an increase in the taxes you have to pay. In addition, this will increase the building costs since building permits can be expensive, and it takes time to obtain one, and as we all know, time is money nowadays.

When it comes to mounting the wiring from your sun room, or screen room, you should hire a professional to do the job for you, since their services are not very expensive, and they can be found even in areas such as Naples, or Clearwater. This can be a tricky job, and if you do not have the tools required to do it, you can easily get hurt. Furthermore, it is advised for you to buy waterproof outlets, to prevent any damage that may be caused by water infiltration.

So we can admit that both these structures do the same thing, but the sun room makes you feel more like being outside than the screen room.
