Under-Truss Screened Enclosures
A lanai, a term derived from Hawaii, is a type of open-sided veranda, patio or porch. It’s designed to be an open area, creating in effect an “outdoor living room.”
When the term under truss is used, this just means that the rafters (or trusses) of the roof are tied down to the roof tie-beam at the edge of the outer structure. This is often done with hurricane straps to keep the roof in place.
One item most home buyers will look for is a good section of "under truss" - that's the portion of the pool deck where you can sit outside protected from the rain and the sun. It’s the shady part of the area.
In Florida a lanai can be a simple screened-in patio or a multiple-story cage which encloses a swimming pool or spa. Special landscaping often accompanies the lanai.
A lanai can create a spectacular outdoor living area. You can transform an ordinary outdoor space into an open-air living room that adds value and comfort to your home.
