Project: Conversion of Porch to an Enclosed Sunroom

[Craftsman Direct] converted our screened porch into a sunroom, which entailed quite a bit of drywall work...installation of a number of windows and a new exterior door. We chose Craftsman because the company had performed a number of projects for us around the house...so we had great confidence in the quality and value of their work...The lead craftsman exercised particular quality control over the drywall installation and painting to make sure we would be happy with the finished look of the room.      -    Janet C. in Raleigh, NC

Things to Consider When Building/Adding or Converting a Deck or Porch into a Sunroom or Lanai Four Seasons Room Enclosure in Raleigh NC
There are a few things you need to think about if you are converting a patio, deck or lanai into a sunroom:
- city codes, inspections and permits
- engineering drawings
- foundation and footings
- electrical wiring - installation of windows and doors

A new or converted sunroom must meet all city/county codes, inspections and permits. You do not want to get a week into a major remodeling project and then find out that the work is not going to pass inspections. This can also come back to haunt you when you try to sell your home. Craftsman Direct will take care of all codes, inspections and we will pull permits for the job. Additional costs for permits will be added to the invoice.

Engineering Drawings for a Sunroom or Lanai Enclosures
We will get an engineer to draw up plans for your new sunroom or lanai (or you can hire an engineer). This makes all code and permit pulling go smoothly. You will keep the plans once the project is completed.

Proper Foundation for Converting a Porch or Lanai into a Sunroom
The most important aspect of a porch/deck conversion is the foundation. Most outdoor wood decks are constructed to support not only the deck, but also a roof. We have never had to enhance or redo the concrete footings, but this must be inspected before the sunroom enclosure roof is built. Our professional engineer will verify the structural integrity for the additional load of a shingled roof.

Match the Color of the Existing Roofing Shingle
It is oftentimes not easy to perfectly match new shingle color to older shingles, but we will do our best with your input.

Electrical Wiring for a Lanai or Sunroom Enclosure
Our plans will include electrical wiring for all lighting, fans and outlets - this is part of the coding and checking permits that you will not have to worry about. We will take care of these details and keep you updated.

Get your existing deck, porch or lanai converted into a beautiful sunroom so you can enjoy it throughout the year. Craftsman Direct can help you make this dream a reality!
