In this episode of Beyond the Studs, Josh Gauwitz, owner of Legacy Exteriors, talked all about planning for spring, as well as Four Seasons sunrooms and LifeRooms. Here’s what Josh had to say …
In Wisconsin, we experience every kind of weather, and when it gets really cold and snow is piling up outside, many of us just want to stay indoors until the warmer weather rolls around.
The thing is, there is true beauty in those cold, snowy months here in Wisconsin — which is why many of our customers have us build them a Four Seasons sunroom so they can experience the outdoors all year round from the comfort of their sunroom. For example, some days we get a lot of sunshine, but you don’t want to be outside because it’s so cold. With a sunroom, you can enjoy the sun and the view — all from the warmth of your home. It’s an amazing experience to have a Four Seasons sunroom, and it really transforms one’s home.
But before we go any further, I just want to mention that Four Seasons is the brand of sunrooms we install. They are an amazing company that provides us with so many wonderful sunroom options that are truly the best quality we could find — including studio, cathedral, conservatory and curved eave sunrooms.
Another option from the Four Seasons brand are LifeRooms, which are amazing rooms that are custom built over your existing patio. LifeRooms allow you to enjoy the sights, smells — and the breeze — of the outdoors without the bugs.
With LifeRooms, high-visiblity screens act as “walls,” which can actually retract and open up completely. Plus, the ceiling can be a pergola style, and when it senses rain or inclement weather, it will become a solid roof (thanks to a motorized component) — which is very cool. LifeRooms are more seasonal than sunrooms. That said, they can be upgraded to a three-season room anytime.
We’re extremely excited about carrying the Four Seasons line of products. They’ve been around for about 50 years, and they’ve always been on the forefront of innovation with their products — like that pergola system that actually senses rain …
Plus, homeowners love the end result. Most people will tell you that their Four Seasons sunroom or LifeRoom has become their favorite room in the house since they’ve had it installed.
And no matter what the weather outside, our design process allows us to show you a 3D rendering of what the design looks like BEFORE we begin work — so changes and tweaks to the design are super easy. There are even VR goggles you can wear that will show you what the inside of that room would look like in your actual home.
One thing homeowners may not be aware of is that once we get the design plans in order, there is a zoning and permitting process that takes place with your local municipality, which can take some time. So getting started with this process now will help get your new Four Seasons room installed sooner than later … in other words, don’t wait until next year if this is something you’d like added to your home …
And when it comes to installation, we are experts at making a room addition look seamless with the rest of a home, so people wouldn’t even know it is an addition … it just looks like it was always part of the home.
Before we wrap up I’d just like to mention financing options, because that’s a consideration for many homeowners. Right now, for qualified homeowners, we’re offering 18-month financing with no interest, which is really helpful in getting the project done and then paying it off over time. We also have financing plans that go up to 11 years. It really depends on what the homeowner needs. We’re happy to discuss these details with homeowners so they can have peace of mind (and not stress) when adding a new addition to their home.
