Adding a Sunroom to My Tampa, Florida Home

Have you ever wondered which type of glass or screen-enclosed space connecting your house with the outdoors would suit your Tampa house the best?

Tampa sunroom, a room which can also be called a solarium or a conservatory, is a glassed-in living space that will most often be attached to the house and accessible while inside the house.  It is designed to serve as an additional living area during mild weather, but may be too hot during the heart of a Tampa summer.

Closely related to the sunroom in appearance and execution, a four-season porch, is designed to be heated and cooled.  As a result, the porch can be enjoyed for the entire year.

Featuring the same basic structure and construction as a sunroom or a four-season porch, an attached greenhouse structure offers light; temperature and humidity levels that are designed for plants.

The final option has walls constructed of screen or mesh, rather than glass or another building material.  This offers the advantage of fresh air without the introduction of nature into a sitting area.  Like the sunroom, it is habitable when the weather is agreeable.  It can make a great budgetary choice.

Deciding the optimum location for your addition is the first critical step when planning the right materials for your glass or screen enclosed sunroom.  Call Rossi Construction, Inc. at 813.436.0177 for a free consultation to discuss the optimum location for an addition.

Rossi Construction, Inc. Issues Guide to Tampa Media Rooms

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PRLog (Press Release) – Oct. 24, 2013 – TAMPA, Fla.

In response to the fall remodeling boom, and a large batch of “which remodeling project is the best project for us” questions, Rossi Construction, Inc. issued a guide to adding a Tampa media room as both their suggestion and a small acknowledgment of their own personal preference.

The experts from Rossi Construction, Inc. decided that a guide to Tampa media rooms would be the best match for folks considering remodeling projects, because the project differs from a typical Tampa bathroom remodel.  The Tampa media room is all about making the family a place to escape from the stress of the world, where they can enjoy time together without the distractions of the real world.

The guide to the proper addition of Tampa media rooms covered all of the basics required to make a Tampa media room into an island apart from the rest of the world.

Jason Rossi explained that a Tampa media room should typically be rectangular, with a flat ceiling that is no higher than 12’.  Rooms that are square can bounce the sound waves in an uneven pattern.  It is important that the media room in an enclosed space.

The guide also covered the topic standing waves, a phenomenon that occurs with parallel walls that are not fitted with any type of sound absorbing material, and it causes sound waves to be canceled out when they bounce back the way they came.

Beyond logistics of room placement, the experts from Rossi Construction, Inc. provided an overview of preparation required for the walls to optimize sound.  The best way to properly optimize the walls in a Tampa media room for sound is to cover the walls in open cell polyurethane acoustic foam panels, or fiberglass panels that are at least 2” thick.  Understanding the concept of floor to ceiling acoustic walls is not appealing, it was explained that floor to ceiling curtains can accomplish the same goal in a Tampa media room.

Rossi Construction, Inc. indicated the guide will have a follow-up with additional tips and tricks to help in the addition of a Tampa media room.
