Default Enclose Lanai

We are looking for recommendations from those who have had good experiences with companies that do glass lanai enclosures. I have reviewed past postings, wondering if there are those with recent experiences who can weigh in. Thanks.

We used CVS and were very happy. You might also want to consider raising the floor and installing electrical outlets as we did. For the enclosure we had double pane insulated glass installed. While more costly, the benefits are well worth the extra cost in the long run. You can save a little money by contracting yourself for the lanai ceiling insulation and flooring.

I used Melton Construction and was very pleased. They raised the floor, insulated, drywall, added three low e windows. A nice job on time on on budget.

Thank you, I appreciate the responses and they are helpful. I may have used the wron terminology as we want to just enclose with glass and not convert the lanai a full interior house expansion.

I had my lanai enclosed with glass. This is not a high end installation as others have described but more of a basic install. It's all I wanted.
I used John Hill Aluminum 352-753-1701

Custom windows A friend who owned a glass company for years told us no need for double pane here. He said you’d never make up for the cost in electricity (air conditioning or heat) We installed a Mitsubishi air/heater too

We used Custom Windows and Doors. We elclosed a 21’ X 12’ lanai entirely with sliding glass doors. We kept that open feel but are able to keep the elements out when needed. Good experience with Custom Windows.

BTW when you raise the floor it then increases your square footage in the home. By doing that your real estate taxes will go up. So, is that added expense of raising that floor two inches really worth it?
