Sunroom Contractors

If you are considering adding a sunroom to your home it is important that you find the right contractor for the job. A great way to find a reputable and trustworthy contractor is to speak with someone who has recently had a sunroom installed in their home. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising and someone who has used the services of a sunroom installer will be able to tell you what they liked about a particular contractor or what they did not like. Ask for references from friends, family members, neighbors and coworkers. Once you have chosen a few contractors to consider, meet with them and ask for work references. Keep in mind that a contractor will typically provide a list of satisfied customers as references.

It is important that you place more emphasis on the quality of work that a contractor offers as opposed to cost and completion time. You want to be certain that you choose a contractor that you can trust to provide you with quality work. A bid that seems ridiculously low should send up a red flag. Remember that you get what you pay for and since a sunroom is an addition to your home, it is important that you get the highest possible quality.

Any contractor that you use should be licensed and insured. Ask about their membership in any local or national remodeling and/or homebuilder’s associations. Find out how long the company has been in operation. An established company with many years of business history is typically the best choice.

The contractor should readily answer any question that you may have and make it easier for you to make an informed decision. If you have concerns about a particular contractor you can check with your local BBB or Better Business Bureau to see if any complaints have been filed against this company.

If there is a showroom available from a contractor, go and take a look at other projects that they have done. You can look at the quality of their craftsmanship as well as the quality of the materials that they use. When it comes to cost, you should receive an accurate quote that includes everything with no hidden costs. Estimates are often not the best way to go. An estimate can be fine for determining the approximate cost of a project but when it comes to hiring a contractor, you want to be sure that you get a fixed pricing quote.

A professional contractor will have his own crew that will be used to install your sunroom. The project should be supervised by a foreman or the contractor himself and there should be a process in place to provide you with instant notification if a change or delay is found. The building permit and final inspection should be taken care of by your contractor but it is up to you to ensure that the permit is actually provided. Keep in mind that if you do not have a valid building permit when you add the sunroom, you could have difficulties down the road should you ever decide to sell your home with the sunroom installed.

A thorough walkthrough inspection should be provided to you when the project is completed. Check to ensure that a warranty is offered for materials and that your satisfaction is guaranteed.
