Is the Cost of a New Sunroom Worth It for Tampa Homeowners?
If you’re like most homeowners, you’re constantly on the prowl for new ways to improve your home. Your house to-do list is likely miles long, so what’s the best way to decide what to prioritize and what can wait? Our rule of thumb at Tropicana Screen & Glass, Inc.: prioritize home investments that will improve your quality of life first. For example, the cost of adding a sunroom may outweigh the cost of buying a new front door, but a sunroom can enhance your quality of life in tons of ways.
For instance, adding a sunroom can:
- Provide extra living space – Installing a sunroom is a great way to add usable and unique square footage to your home.
- Enable you to soak up the sun year-round – Porches require constant cleaning thanks to dirt and pollen, but sunrooms allow you to get your vitamin D fix all year long in a fresh, clean space—and without having to swat at mosquitos!
- Potentially increase your home’s resale value – A sunroom is a unique space in that it blends the indoors with the outdoors. And Florida home buyers will love that since many new residents move here for our amazing climate!
It’s clear that sunrooms offer benefits of an outdoor living space, like a beautiful view and plenty of sunshine, without all the discomforts of being outside, such as being burnt to a crisp by the sun, soaked to the bone by rain, or getting eaten alive by mosquitos.
How You Can Use Your Sunroom
When you partner with us to have a sunroom installed, you’re opening the door to a world of possibilities. Not only can your sunroom serve as a place to sit and enjoy your natural surroundings without actually being outside, but your new sunroom can also serve as a:
- Playroom for your kids
- Home gym or yoga space
- An entertainment space
- Indoor gardening area
- Craft room
- Home spa
- Art studio
- And much more
Choosing Your Windows
Whatever your home currently lacks, your new sunroom can be adapted to fill that void. When it comes to designing your new sunroom, you’ll be able to choose from three distinct options for the windows, including:
- Acrylic – Our most cost-effective choice, these acrylic windows are double-paned and open to screens just like normal glass windows. However, they are more resistant to breaking. The entire acrylic window sash can be removed for easy cleaning, and in the event of a hurricane, should be removed temporarily to help prevent them from being damaged.
- Tempered glass – Our tempered glass windows are a great option that can help you stay on budget, but unlike the acrylic windows, these are made of real, crystal-clear glass. These windows can be tinted, come in either single- or double-paned glass, and can be opened to screens. While these windows are built tough to stand up to harsh Florida weather, in the rare event that the tempered glass does break, it is designed to shatter into small, non-sharp bits to reduce injury to anyone who is nearby.
- Impact glass – These windows offer the ultimate protection for your sunroom. As its name suggests, the impact glass is designed to resists damage, even if struck by windblown debris during a hurricane. Between the two panes of glass is a layer of plastic that, in the unlike event that the glass breaks, will hold the glass in place to prevent it from shattering outward.
