6 Ways to Make Your Sunroom Shine This Winter

Winter
Keep your sunroom clean and well-maintained, and you’ll enjoy it all winter.

Do you love sunny summer days? If so, bring on the winter! Winter’s the perfect time to enjoy the sunshine and warmth of the summer in your sunroom. A sunroom combines the beauty of the outdoors with the comfort of the indoors. Before winter comes, make sure that your sunroom is ready. These cleanup techniques will ensure that your sunroom is safe, pleasant, and well-maintained and will help keep your sunroom shining all winter long.

1. Scrub It Down

Squeaky-clean windows are much easier to enjoy throughout the winter. Before winter comes, wash the interior and exterior glass of your sunroom with a mild detergent. Avoid strong chemicals that could damage the glass. At the same time, clean the vinyl and the roof panels that sit on top of and between the glass panels of your sunroom. Avoid strong abrasives, but don’t be afraid to use a brush on the roof to remove heavier grime.

Winter
Keep your sunroom glass, vinyl, and roofing clean and you’ll let the light in.

2. Clean Your Gutters

Prevent leaking and overflows by making sure that your gutters are clean before the winter comes. Remove debris, and if your gutters are warped or badly damaged, consider a new gutter installation. Add gutter covers and heating to maintain the water flow in your gutters throughout the winter months.

3. Check Your Seals

A sunroom needs to stay warm and dry throughout the winter months. Just as you’d check a roof to ensure that it doesn’t have leaks, check your sunroom’s seals to be sure that they’re not cracked and leaking. The silicone may become discolored over time, and some discoloration is normal.

4. Warm it Up

To use your sunroom in the winter, you may need to add heat. Before the temperatures drop too low, check to make sure all of your sunroom heating systems are working. Add pillows and comfortable blankets to seating areas to lower heating bills and make the room feel cozy.

5. Keep it in Motion

Since sunrooms have windows that may not open and they tend to sit on the outside of the house in an area that’s a dead zone for air movement, you need to make sure that air circulates from the sunroom to the rest of the house and vice versa. Add a fan to your sunroom that moves stale air from the sunroom and helps bring in new air from areas with open windows.

6. Clean it Off

When winter does come, you’ll need to be prepared to keep your sunroom clear of ice and snow. If you get heavy accumulations, consider adding a roof rake to your winter tool shed. This allows you to gently remove snow accumulations from your roof.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
