All-Season Sunroom in Florida

What Is an All-Season Sunroom/Four-Season Room?

A four-season sunroom is a living space that offers you an area to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors year-round with comfort. Also known as all-season rooms, these sunrooms are interior spaces that focus on the outdoors. They act as a bright lounge area that makes you feel like you’re sitting outside when you’re still in your home.

Unlike other types of sunrooms, such as three-season or patio rooms, four-season rooms can be cooled and heated with electricity and superior insulation. Since they are built with mostly high-performance glass, this gives you the capability of using the space like any other room in your home.

Comparatively, four-season sunrooms offer far more protection and durability than screen rooms and pool enclosures, which don’t have walls or windows but use screens to separate the space from the outdoors. Because of that difference, four-season sunrooms hold up much better in adverse weather.

Benefits of an All-Season Sunroom in Florida

Having an all-season sunroom in Florida comes with many benefits. Let’s explore some of the top advantages you’ll experience with your sunroom home addition.

Natural Light

Regardless of how hot it is outside, you can enjoy the natural sunlight in your four-season room 365 days a year. Studies show that natural light is imperative to our physical and emotional well-being.

Natural light can help with the following:

  • Allow our bodies to produce sufficient amounts of Vitamin D
  • Improve our circadian rhythms and sleep patterns
  • Increase focus
  • Make us happier

With your all-season room, you can relax and soak in the natural light anytime to experience these benefits.

Bring the Outdoors Inside

Forget dealing with swarming mosquitoes, heavy winds, or dirt wafting around. When you have a four-season room, you can enjoy the outdoors without any of the annoying disturbances that come with it.

Even in the most unfavorable weather conditions, you can relax in this serene room in your home.

Space and Function

Sunrooms always become the most popular room in the house because they create the perfect space for gatherings and special events. But when you need to get away from the pressures of life, it’s also the best place to de-stress.

You can’t find another ideal room to have your morning coffee or stargaze at night.

Additionally, four season rooms can add to your home’s square footage. This will increase the value of your home when you decide to sell. It’s a sunroom design that has the capability of adding additional livable square footage and is more than just a selling point.

All–Season Sunroom Features

Four-season sunrooms offer the most features of any new sunroom because of their design and construction. We review the most essential elements to know below.

Frame Options

Four-season rooms usually use a thermally engineered aluminum frame to allow for heating and cooling. This option offers maximum structural integrity and exceeds building code regulations.

Homeowners can choose between several color options for the frame, such as bronze, sandstone, and white.

The structure will also include an internal electrical raceway for easy room wiring.

Roof Options

The most common roof options for all-season rooms are as follows:

  • Gable (peaked or pitched): two roof sections sloping in opposite directions from a center point
  • Single slope: one roof section sloping in one direction
  • Under existing: use an already standing pitch or patio roof

The roofing materials include 3 to 6-inch insulated panels with structural interlocking seams and thermal barriers to provide strength, stability, and comfort. Because the panels are thick, you can construct the room to your desired size.

Glass Options

Floor-to-ceiling glass windows and transoms are prevalent in all-season rooms to allow maximum sunlight to shine into the space. Although you can use single-pane glass, double-pane glass is better for four-season rooms because it improves heating and cooling performance.

Double-pane glass also blocks UV rays nearly 45% more effectively than single-pane glass. HPG3 high performance glass is another great option that blocks UV rays and is 90% more efficient than traditional glass.

Windows & Doors

The door and window systems will depend on your frame’s material. Aluminum frames are more desirable due to their strength and durability when compared composite or vinyl frames. Although both aluminum and vinyl frames may use a monorail, the construction is different. Windows with dual sliding interlocking meeting rails allow for ventilation but also provide security.

Intergraded weather stripping is available, too. It’s a smart feature to include, as it offers draft and weather resistance. Weather stripping also protects from water infiltration, which is necessary during storm season.

Other Sunrooms by Lifestyle Remodeling

We do much more than Florida rooms, so if a four-season room isn’t suitable for you, consider one of the following options instead:

Those who want a custom sunroom but are budget conscious can also consider studio sunrooms. They are smaller in size and use either a single eave roof or an extension to your existing lanai, creating a seamless extension of your current living space.

Another budget-friendly option we offer is a three-season sunroom. Three-season rooms come with a variety of glass options to choose from. You can choose from a solid knee wall or lower glass transoms for your design. The walls can also come in different thicknesses, with the potential to be more cost-effective and also energy-efficient. Whichever project you choose, call us today for your free quote.
