Choosing Windows for Your Sunroom

Choosing Windows for Your Sunroom

Fri, Jul 1, 2016

Adding a sunroom to your home can make you love your home more than ever before. If you are planning a sunroom addition, you will need at least 20 or more windows. This is why it is crucial to understand the importance of the choices you make regarding material, price, and style of your windows. Choosing the wrong style can make or break your project. There are probably hundreds of different styles you can choose from, and the decision can be made easier by answering your big picture questions before you go on the hunt for your new windows.

Energy Efficiency

You can expect to pay anywhere from $700-$1000 for one double-paned glass window for your sunroom. This double-pane glass will have low-emissivity which keeps the heat from coming into your home in the summer and escaping it during the cold winter months. This makes them twice as efficient as regular single-paned windows that most people used twenty years ago. You can even get triple-paned windows which will cost you about $500 or more up front.

How should they open?

You may want a lot of fresh air coming in on that beautiful spring day, but just how much do you want? This is a big deciding factor when it comes to choosing windows for your sunroom.

  • Fixed windows are the most cost-effective of the different types and are used in solarium-style sunrooms with a basic setting.
  • Slider windows cost a bit more but consist of two different framed panes that move from side to side.
  • Casement windows are hinged on one single side and you will use a hand crank to open the whole window. This will bring a lot of air and light into your new sunroom but they do require a great deal of maintenance.
  • Awning windows are much like casement windows and have hinges on the tops of them. The window is then able to become a rain shield when it is open. They assist in letting the warm air escape from your sunroom and keeping your room cooler.

Many Choices

Choosing the right type of window for your sunroom doesn't have to be super challenging. After all of the big picture decisions are made, there is very little left that you will need to do besides enjoy your beautiful new sunroom. The right windows can make all of the difference and help you to enjoy your home more than ever before.

We used Shaw Company to remodel our master bathroom. Everyone we met with was very professional and helpful. Patrick helped us with the initial design phase, Brittany with the material selections, Anthony oversaw the actual construction, and Nancee checked in with us regularly to keep us informed and make sure we were pleased with everything! I really appreciated that they had a design center so I didn't feel overwhelmed with that part of the process. Additionally, Anthony did a great job of communicating with us daily through the process and making sure things were done right. It was a great experience and I enthusiastically recommend Shaw Company Remodeling!

Shaw remodeling did an excellent job on our master bathroom. Clay was always concerned that we were satisfied with their work. When they tell you they are not finished until you are 100% happy THEY MEAN IT! I want to thank Clay for all his hard work on the new door it was a bit difficult to install. Everyone mentions the beautiful door. Special thanks to Jordan for suggesting the accent wall behind the vanity also a favorite of all. Brittany made is so easy helping us with the design. Thank you to Nancy and the Shaw family who sent me flowers while I was very ill during the remodel.

Our kitchen remodel took 8 weeks to complete. Salvador and his crew worked hard. They were knowledgeable and professional, as well as, friendly throughout the process. I had a special request for the color of my cabinets. Salvador got it done. They are beautiful and unique. I was always able to reach Salvador at anytime and he always took care of the situation. The office staff was so helpful, especially in the selection process.. Everyone was professional, helpful and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Shaw Remodeling, the office staff, Salvador and crew for your remodeling needs, big or small. We will definitely call them again.

To the owners and management of Shaw, We wanted you all to know how pleased we are with the results of our recent bathroom tub to shower conversion. It turned out beautiful, exactly the way we had hoped. Your staff was top notch! From start to finish every person involved was professional, on time or early and friendly. In addition, we were impressed with how much care they took in keeping our home clean throughout the whole process. We realized after the job was finished that they had actually wiped down the bathroom to remove and left over dust... Nice job on hiring great help! Thank you again. Looking forward to seeing you again this week to measure and install cabinets in our laundry room and master bath!

Shaw was an amazing company to work with on our remodeling. From start to finish, they were prompt and professional. Quality work and high standards! We had a full bathroom remodel from top to bottom. Our bathroom looks so incredibly different and amazingly beautiful - our vision for what we wanted came to fruition. They had effective communication from both the business end as well as the contracting end. Any last touch ups we requested, they were happy to complete. For any of our future projects, Shaw will be the first place we turn to!

Shaw Remodeling was extremely professional in their execution of our master bathroom remodel this year. They made great suggestions in the showroom and carried our choices into the design and completion of the project.

Due to broken leg/fall I am in a wheel chair for the next 4 months and required our bathroom to be remodeled in a hurry. Eric committed to complete the job at a reasonable price and a short time frame. The work was completed ahead of schedule and on budget. All employees were great and very professional. I will use Shaw again for future work on my home and have no problem recommenting the company to others.

Brittany, helped me make my selections, Nancy held my hand, Patrick planned and priced the job, and Chris and Anthony brought my ideas to fruition! It took all of the above to bring me my perfect kitchen and bath remodel. This was my second kitchen remodel and it went very well. I was contacted daily, site was cleaned daily, and workers present daily. I had 8 project changes and each was addressed respectfully and most of all happily! They are a 5 star company with 5star people!

Shaw is a very professional company. Anthony was informative, courteous, and super professional. He communicated continually throughout the remodeling process and was always willing to adjust or change anything we requested. His crew was very respectful. Christopher, Marcus, and Roy are outstanding in their fields. From Patrick's design expertise and Brittany's helpful coordination of materials, my kitchen is beautiful and functional. The Shaw team follows up continually and is great to work with.
