Florida Room

A home owner’s backyard in Florida is every bit as important as the front yard, maybe even more important. Mature tropical lighted landscaping; a pool inside a lanai and golf course or waterfront views really can make your backyard special. What you really need to enjoy these stunning views is a Florida Room. A Florida Room is either an enclosed open space with multiple windows and doors or an outdoor room with an overhang or roof. If a Florida Room sounds like your kind of space then you’re in luck as there are many homes to choose from in Manatee and Sarasota County.

A Florida Room that is enclosed is all about the right windows and doors. Good windows and doors are going to keep your Florida home structurally sound and energy efficient. I speak from experience as I spent many years selling Andersen window products. In Florida you want windows and doors that have a LoE (low emissivity) metallic coating and a high DP (design pressure) rating. LoE keeps the heat out during the summer and the heat in during the winter, keeping your electric bill down. The DP rating is the ability to withstand wind and water infiltration, the higher the rating the better.

The above info on windows and doors was just a quick FYI if you are looking for a home in Florida, especially if that home has a Florida Room. As far as a Florida Room that is more open to the outdoors, well it’s all about the roof and that’s pretty self explanatory. Below you will find a preconfigured search of the homes for sale in Manatee and Sarasota County that have a Florida Room.
