FLORIDA ROOM DOORS AND WINDOWS:

A Florida room is divided into five different grades according to Florida Building code. . There are five different levels of Florida room with number five being the most involved. To better help understand what level of room you are trying to build ALMA has a loose guide line:

Category 1: a roof or covering of an outdoor space. The openings shall be permitted to be enclosed with insect screen or 0.5 mm (20mil) maximum thickness plastic film. The space is defined as non-habitable and unconditioned.

Category 2: A roof or covering of an outdoor space with enclosed walls. The openings are permitted to be enclosed with translucent or transparent plastic or glass. The space is defined as non-habitable and unconditioned.

Category 3: A roof or covering of an outdoor space with enclosed walls. The openings are permitted to be enclosed with translucent or transparent plastic or glass. The sunroom complies with additional requirements for forced entry resistance, air leakage resistance and water penetration resistance. The space is defined as non-habitable and unconditioned.

Category 4: A roof or covering of an outdoor space with enclosed walls. The sunroom is designed to be heated and/or cooled by a separate temperature control or system and is thermally isolated from the primary structure. The sunroom complies with additional requirements for forced entry resistance, air leakage resistance and water penetration resistance, and thermal performance. The space is defined as habitable and conditioned.

Category 5: A roof or covering of an outdoor space with enclosed walls. The sunroom is designed to be heated and/or cooled and is open to the main structure. The sunroom complies with additional requirements for forced entry resistance, air leakage resistance and water penetration resistance, and thermal performance. The space is defined as habitable and conditioned.

A properly built Florida room can add a lot of intrinsic and monetary value to a home while possibly increasing overall square footage.
