When shopping for a sunroom or screen room addition, it’s easy to focus on the aesthetics of the room. While it’s important to have energy efficient windows, durable screens, an abundance of glass area and the right sliding door in your new home addition, it’s also crucial to have a well-built roof.
Many times the construction of the roof is overlooked and taken for granted. Let’s be honest–it’s less sexy than the large picture windows and beautiful sliding doors. Yet, it’s the most critical part of the room in terms of function, longevity and durability.
The function of the roof is to keep out the elements throughout the year. Regardless of whether your room contains screens, single pane glass or insulated glass, the function of the roof remains the same.
The roof on your home addition has to hold up to weather elements ranging from sun, rain, wind and even snow in northern climates. If the roof of your room addition is not constructed properly, there is a higher chance that your room will get wet when it rains or snows, rendering that space useless. For example, during a heavy snowfall, your roof has to support a tremendous amount of weight over a large surface area. To put that into perspective, think about how heavy a snow shovel is with just a scoop of wet snow on it – pretty heavy! A well-constructed roof should stand up to these elements and more, leaving you worry-free.
