Beautiful and Versatile Calgary Sunrooms for Your Home
The skilled professionals at Aftica Sunrooms have decades of experience building custom sunrooms of all kinds. We use better materials, and we price fairly. At Aftica Sunrooms, it's all about customer satisfaction. We construct our sunrooms with aesthetic appeal and usability in mind. Enjoy the outdoors year round from the privacy of your own sunroom. You can see the outdoors clearly, but it's completely private from the outside looking in. Aftica sunrooms are also highly versatile and built with the most durable materials. We use acrylic, which is ten times stronger and 65% lighter than glass, to construct our sunrooms. Acrylic can also be fashioned into just about any shape, giving Aftica even more leverage when creating a uniquely custom sunroom for your home. Choose from three-season or four-season sunrooms, depending upon your needs. You can enjoy an uninhibited view of the outdoors from the comfort of your home even in the most inclement weather in a four-season sunroom. The options for creating a sunroom unique to your home are virtually unlimited.
What is a sunroom?
A sunroom, also known as a solarium, is a room with windows as walls, that is attached to a building such as a home or office. Typically, these windows are made of glass, but more recently, thanks to technology, these structures are now being made of acrylic materials that are far superior to glass with respect to their light weight, strength, and lower costs. Sunrooms are like informal family rooms only with a lot of windows and great views of your yard.
What do you use a sunroom for?
Sunrooms are awesome, especially when they are well-designed with wood floors and comfortable furniture. They are a great place to sleep, read, relax, and socialize. They are also used as a greenhouse, especially with an abundance of plants.
Aren’t sunrooms too hot in summer and too cold in winter?
With older technology material, mainly glass, the sunroom was always either too hot or too cold. Today’s technology with acrylic glass, screens, ceiling fans, and portable radiant heating, sunrooms are often the most comfortable room in the home or office because of the warmth of the sun.
What is a 3-season sunroom?
A 3-season sunroom is a sunroom that is not attached to your hvac system and therefore not heated in the cold winter months.
What is a 4-season sunroom?
A 4-season sunroom is attached to your HVAC system and heated and air conditioned all year round.
Which offers the highest value on resale, a 3-season or a 4-season sunroom?
There’s no question that a 4-season sunroom adds more value to your home as you are adding square footage to your home. Some real estate experts say that the return on investment for a 4-season sunroom can be as high as 80%, but the average is around 60%. That means that for every $1.00 that you invest you could get a return of as high as $1.80.
The Real Return on Investment is the Improvement in Your Lifestyle!
Here are some tips once you’ve decided to add a sunroom…
Have your sunroom face south: To capture the maximum benefit of your sunroom, locate the structure to face south so that you capture the sun's rays all day.
Accessibility: Ensure the flooring of your sunroom is the same as the flooring height in your home to allow wheelchair access and make your door width a little oversized as well so that it’s easier to move garden furniture in and out.
Make the ceiling high: Higher ceilings give your room the appearance of being larger and grander.
Install a ceiling fan: Install a ceiling fan to keep the air flowing.
