The Florida Room, or a sunroom, or commonly referred to as a Three Seasons room up north, is a cost-effective way of bridging the gap between your interiors and exteriors by creating usable living space free of weather and insects.
Are you considering adding a sunroom to your home? There are plenty of benefits to creating additional space for your family to spend time in without breaking the bank in renovations.
Florida Room additions are popular in the south, allowing families to spend time near nature without being immersed in it. You are able to enjoy the beauty that nature has to offer 365 days a year from the comfort of an enclosed space.
Many people are tempted to move to Florida because of the sunshine and outdoors, however, us Floridians here in the Lakeland/Plant City area know a respite from the heat is necessary on hot summer days. A Florida Room offers a break from the heat, mosquitoes, and other insects. It offers your friends and families the opportunity to relax in a shaded environment, yet still be outdoors.
The best thing about a Florida Room is that it is an extra space for you to choose what you want to do with it. Some people may just want an extra living or dining room, while others envision a playroom, home gym, or artist's studio. Whichever is your motivation for adding a sunroom onto your home; there are other ways to make the space unique and personable.
The resale value of a home with a Florida Room is increased. Homeowners generally see a larger ROI on a sunroom than they would on a complete room addition. The cost of building the space vs. the added value is much higher with a Florida Room than with a full addition. Moreover, an addition does not allow you to get closer to nature or have space where you can enjoy the natural elements throughout all seasons.
Sunrooms can be constructed from a number of materials depending on how custom the homeowner is willing to go. Remember, usually the more customized and selective you get with your Florida Room, the higher the price will be.
The options for a new Florida Room fall into one of two categories: pre-fabricated or custom. Within these options, you will find distinct differences in price points between the use of wood, vinyl, screens, or glass panels. The average costs for installing a sunroom can range from as little as $15,000 to an excess of $75,000 when grading and laying a slab are involved.
Florida rooms can provide a great return on investment - up to 80% in some cases, according to Quicken Loans!
Even if you decide to go with a pre-fabricated model, sunrooms are typically not considered DIY projects. Professionals such as True Builders should always be consulted when creating an addition to your home. Building permits are needed when creating Florida Rooms and a professional company can make sure your structure complies with all ordinances and is sound and sturdy for years to come.If you are located in the Lakeland or Plant City, FL area and want to get an estimate on your very own Florida Room, contact us today by calling (863) 647-1800.
