If you’ve ever considered building a residential greenhouse in Overland Park, Independence, or Platte Woods, Kansas, there’s no better time than the present! Unique Kansas City Patio Enclosures can build it for you with your exact specifications in mind. There are many benefits of having a greenhouse attached to your home. Obviously, you can enjoy fresh, home-grown fruits and vegetables – even tropical varieties – year-round. Maybe you didn’t realize, though, that a greenhouse can also supply supplemental heat to your home in cooler months.
Here are a few things that we’ll address with you prior to building a residential greenhouse on your property:
How it will be constructed
Your home’s greenhouse should be built by a professional, especially if you will be attaching it as an add-on to your home. Shawnee, Bonner Springs and the rest of the Kansas City metropolis can depend on Unique Kansas City Patio Enclosures for a water- and air-tight connection from their existing home into their new greenhouse.
A residential greenhouse will need a solid foundation, good drainage, insulated glass walls, not to mention polypropylene weather stripping. We have access to the highest quality materials and have the knowledge and skill to build a professional-grade greenhouse for your home use!
Where it will be located
Customers almost always know where they want their sunroom or greenhouse to be positioned on their property, even before they call us to do the building. Those living in Lenexa, Mission Hills, and other Kansas City suburbs should consider which room they’d like their greenhouse to extend from, but they will also need to consider how much sun the room will get. You want just the right amount of heat to get in each day (via natural sunlight), so it may be necessary to do some preliminary research, charting the hours of sunlight each area of your property gets every day.
What the room will be used for
The main function of a greenhouse is to keep plants healthy and flourishing indoors. For anyone who loves flowers or growing their own food, this alone can be a major incentive to build one. If you’ll be wintering many plants in your greenhouse, we can add water hose hookups for your convenience. The type of flooring will also be chosen based on how much potting you will do in the greenhouse so that the floor can be swept clean.
Other homeowners may be looking for natural, economical ways to heat their homes. As mentioned earlier, a greenhouse in your Roeland Park or Lee’s Summit home can add valuable heat to your home at no additional cost to you. If you build your residential greenhouse in an area with a high amount of sunshine, you can harness the sun’s rays to heat your home partially or fully for several months out of the year!
