California Sunroom’s Process of Designing and Constructing Sunrooms
With nearly 2,000 happy customers and sunroom, patio enclosure, conservatory and solarium installations, we’ve learned a great deal. We’ll be sharing with you the primary knowledge you will need to know to make the right sunroom choice for your home.
There are three critical areas our sunroom experts initially focus on:
- Sunroom Design
- Sunroom Construction
- Sunroom Manufacturer’s Product
Our journey begins with the proper “Sunroom Design” for your needs and budget. One of our sunroom design experts will visit your home to discuss the model of sunroom, solarium, conservatory, or patio enclosure you would like to add. We will help you decide on your glass room’s use, size, shape, and attachment area to your home. Involved in the sunroom design is also the consideration of doors, lighting, skylights, electrical outlets, space planning, heating & cooling, and help you choose which sunroom design will be the right one for you. We feature the most glass room designs of any other company, including the popular solarium, conservatory, and patio room. We also provide both glass roofs or solid roofs with skylights for all glass room additions to bring wonderful light into your home.
California Sunrooms’ exclusive glass room design offer is a free service, and is greatly appreciated not only for its unique information, but for the fact that our glass room designers are there to help you, not try to sell you on a sun room plan. In fact they do not even carry purchase agreements. This is not about an instant glass room addition decision from some slick salesman; this is about the right glass room addition for your lifestyle and home! Our sunroom design consultants will give you a phone call the following day and let you know your total sunroom investment.
Next we will spend a few hours putting together your glass room drawings and proposal. We will invite you to our show home to review your proposal and to see firsthand the beauty of our glass room additions. To get your glass room project started we can only accept a thousand dollar deposit, and then we’ll begin obtaining your permit.
The second critical area of focus is your sunroom construction. California Sunrooms can build sunrooms on wooden decks but for the majority of our projects we build the highest quality glass rooms on concrete foundations which include a 12″ by 12″ perimeter footing, vapor barrier and full steel rebar grid drilled and tied into your home.
Our exclusive foundation design is what is typically needed for an all year round habitable sunroom, pato enclosure, conservatory or solarium addition onto your home. This is because California has expansive soils, and the bay area is in a “Seismic Zone Four”. (Your home is built on a perimeter footing for this same reason).
Another area of concern will be the proper attachment of the sunroom, conservatory, patio enclosure or solarium to the wall of your home. We will usually install special flashing to insure against even the windiest of storms. Most of the Bay area is in a “Wind Exposure C” and that is why we design our extra strength roof beams into every glass room roof.
Sunroom Manufacturer’s Product

Each manufacturer will tell you they are the best, and their products can initially look very similar.
