Shopping for a sunroom may seem like all fun and games; however, there are a few things to keep in mind to make this a wise purchase as well as a fun purchase.Keeping in mind things such as durability, reputation of the company you are purchasing from and what kind of warranty they offer are all-important components of purchasing a new sunroom.
Make sure that the company engineers and designers, as well as the workers who will be installing your sunroom, have passed all of their certifications and qualify to work on your sunroom, as well as your home.
Look into the testimonials of that company’s prior installations. Word of mouth goes a long way when it comes to quality and durability of a sunroom structure. Things such as how much snow a roof can hold on a sunroom, how much wind a sunroom can sustain, and the durability of the foundation are things you need to consider while shopping around for your sunroom.
Ask questions about the durability of doors, windows, and energy efficiency.
Ask about the company’s reputation from friends, neighbors, and family members who have used their products. Get their opinion on everything from customer service to accounting and construction.
Look through the Better Business Bureau and check out the rating, if any. See how many years the company has been in business and if they have a blog or website.
Look deeply into the warranty that comes along with the purchase of your sunroom. Make sure that you are aware of extraneous issues such as the detection of termites, repair, and maintenance.
A well-designed sunroom is only as good as the warranty that backs it and the company that backs the warranty. Take the time and trouble to read the fine print, and ask questions as well.
Rebates, Coupons, and Future Sales
Do not be afraid to ask for discounts, coupons, and rebates on future sales the company may have. Perhaps they will offer a discount that was not available during your purchase time and are willing to rebate you a certain percentage for a short time after your install.
Do not hesitate to ask for a first-time customer discount or a senior discount after you are told the price of your sunroom. If you do not ask, you will never receive.
These are just a few things to consider when purchasing a sunroom.
