Sunrooms have become a popular home improvement project for many Florida homeowners. Often, Florida homeowners who decide to invest in a sunroom say that it’s their favorite room in the house. Also commonly referred to as a Florida room, four season sunroom, patio enclosure, solarium, glass room enclosure, conservatory, sunrooms are an excellent solution for many Florida homeowners who are looking for the best alternatives to a traditional stick-built/cement block room addition. Sunrooms are becoming very popular among many Florida residents because they give homeowners the ability to add the same amount of additional living space as a traditional room addition, but instead of using wood or cement block, the new room addition is built using a specially designed window wall system with energy efficient windows.
