Patio, Porch, Lanai or Veranda

Which is it?


A paved outdoor area adjoining a house. Generally used for dining or recreation. The term comes from Spanish. It means "inner courtyard". Common materials employed when building a patio include concrete, stone or bricks.

A covered shelter projecting in front of the entrance of a house or building. The structure is external to the walls of the building. But, it may be enclosed in certain types of frames including walls, columns, or screens, extending from the main structure. A porch is basically a covered patio.

Porch on a house


A term frequently used in Hawaii to describe a specific type of porch. Most often it’s used to describe an enclosed porch with a concrete or stone floor. Lanais are slightly different from sun-rooms. They have concrete floors and are situated on the ground adjacent to the home.

A veranda is a large porch that’s a room for entertaining. It may be a gallery running along one or more sides of the home. It is roofed and might have railing. Sometimes a veranda will wrap around a house. Think Victorian or New Orleans style here–perhaps on the front and both sides.

Florida Rooms and Sunrooms

florida room

A Florida room is a room within or adjoining a residence which is designed to admit considerable sunlight and fresh air.  Especially one which is not heated and is used only in the warmer seasons; a sunroom. The two are all pretty much the same thing. Also called a solarium, Florida room, garden room, sun parlor, patio room, winter garden, or conservatory. Basically, a space with windows or screens on three sides that lets lots of sun in. Sometimes they face south capture maximum exposure. They can be insulated and equipped with heating/cooling.

Our additions and enclosures stay cooler in our warm climate because of the insulated panel design. Our closed-air additions are easily cooled. Saving a lot of money on expensive air conditioning. Especially during our sizzling Summer months.

But, these structures need to be built correctly. It takes excellent planning to create a new home environment. We guarantee that you will enjoy your new addition or enclosure. Not to mention the added resale value it will provide when it comes time to sell your home.
