Construction and Contractors: All in a Day's Work

Can you imagine being a contractor? You start you morning by picking up supplies at the local building store. You drop off those supplies at one job site, and then you drive to another job site where you spend four hours mudding drywall. As that dries, you make calls to some of your suppliers, and then you meet with a client about a new job across town. As evening rolls in, you drive back to the other construction site and sand down some of that drywall. If this sound like a fun day to you, then you've stumbled on the right blog! This is a blog about construction, and you'll fit right in.


Have A Sun Porch Or 3 Season Room You Want To Use All Year? Start With The Best Insulation

Do you have a back sunroom or three-season room that you love to use as a part of your living space? If it's too cold for you to use the space when the temperatures start to drop, you may be able to get the comfort you need with a few changes. With the proper insulation and sealing up the air leaks, this could be a much more usable room.

Heating assistance is something else that you could consider. Here are the things that you want to look into to further utilize the space.

Proper Insulation

Having the highest-quality insulation is one of the most important steps when trying to get more use out of a three-season room. Get estimates for closed-cell spray foam insulation. This insulation will:

  • Prevent air from getting into the room from the exterior
  • Trap air and stop air from leaking out
  • Protect the walls, room, and home from interior wall moisture
  • Keep pests out of the space

This is a very energy efficient option for the room and is a protective option. The professionals will choose the easiest way to get into the interior walls of the room, and then they will spray in the insulation. After it is released, it will expand to fit the exact interior space in between the walls.

It will also go around plumbing fixtures and electrical outlets. This can help to protect these components in the space as well.

Window Caulking and Coverings

Even a new addition will settle after it is constructed, and you could get minor gaps between windows or door frames. Be sure to go around and caulk all the windows and check for any gaps or air leaks. You may also want to add window treatments to close the room during the evening hours or when the weather is cold. The treatments will also keep sun and heat out during hot summer days.

Infrared Heating Option

A small infrared heater may be a great way to heat up the room after it has been properly insulated. This is also an efficient and affordable way to get heat into the space. This will make the room cozy to use at any time.

Having the room to use throughout the year is like having another space to enjoy inside the home, and if you want to use it all year round, you'll want to make these changes. Get quotes and make the investment today.
