So you're starting to work on your sunroom plans. That's great! planning for a sunroom or retractable screens can be the best thing you ever did for your home, your family and your lifestyle. Almost all of our clients at one time or another tell us, "This was the best thing I ever did! I should have done it years ago. I don't know why I waited so long. It's our favourite room in the house."
We understand why people wait so long to create their sunroom plans. It's a big project and it's difficult to even know where to start. Seaton Sunrooms is here to help you through your sunroom planning. Adding sunroom living space to your home is an investment that will provide you and your family with years of pleasure and enjoyment.
Like any kind of home improvement, it's an important decision and one that requires a great deal of planning and support.
Ask if your contractor has a showroom where you can see full-size models. As soon as you walk through the door you should get a sense as to how comfortable you would feel having this company work on your home. Ask if your contractor has a display home where you can see a finished sunroom so you can assess first-hand the quality of their workmanship.
After you visit the showroom, make sure your contractor offers consultation and measurement at your home to provide you with an exact cost for your project. Some contractors only have pre-fabricated sunrooms to offer and will try to sell you on that version because it’s all they can get from their supplier. Scheduling an appointment will be the only true way to be sure you can compare the cost and value of each product before selecting a sunroom company.
Workers' Compensation insurance is a big expense that many contractors don't want to absorb, so they cut corners by hiring uninsured subcontractors to do the installation. If an uninsured worker is injured on your property, you could bear the liability.
If sub-contractors are used for specialty work on your installation, be sure they are fully insured and that your sunroom company will stand behind their work.
Identify what permits will be required and how they will be processed. Find out who will schedule the inspections required by your local building department. Seaton Sunrooms will take care of all the necessary engineering and permitting for you.
Seaton Sunrooms offers a one-year labour warranty so that you are not rushed and have time to enjoy your sunroom. We also offer a great warranty on the products in the Sunroom. Because we manufacture our products, we stand behind them!
Seaton Sunrooms Rooms can be built on your existing deck or patio if it meets local building codes required for a sunroom addition. We can reinforce your deck or patio if needed, or build a new foundation for your sunroom. Begin your plan for a sunroom, motorized screens or screen room by setting goals, considering designs, understanding the construction process, knowing the benefits, speaking with a manufacturer, and considering the porch or patio enclosure options.
