Dangers of DIY: Why You Should Hire a Sunroom Addition Contractor Instead
When you make a decision to add space on to your home, building a sunroom addition offers you a year-round space that your friends and family alike will enjoy. The bright, open area can add significant room to your home, and provide you with a transition space on days when it’s too hot and muggy in the bright sunshine (so common here in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and Maryland!) or when a little rain drives you inside. However, while a DIY project may seem like something you can tackle, sun room additions really require home addition and home remodeling contractors like Elite Contractor Services. We can save you money (and headaches!) by solving some of the permit challenges that every county has especially if you live in Washington DC and neighboring areas. Fairfax County is an example of a “tough” county to get permits for!
Sunroom Contractors will make sure Electrical and Wiring for your building project is up to code
Sure, it may seem pretty straightforward to run a few wires to put lights or an overhead fan in your new sunroom, but getting help from certified sun room addition contractors will help steer you clear of any problems with local building authorities. There are specific laws around electrical wiring that are meant for your protection, and as top home remodeling contractors, we have the latest information to be sure your building project is up to code.
Permit Required? As Home Remodeling Contractors We Can Do That!
Larger building projects often require a permit, and a building project such as a sunroom addition is likely to be one. While in some areas of the country, you can apply for a permit yourself, it is generally safer to have a contractor involved for any project that requires a permit. As contractors working in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and Maryland, we’re familiar with code requirements in cities as diverse as Fairfax and Vienna in Virginia and Chevy Chase and Rockville in Maryland.
