We were at the Home and Garden Show at the Convention Center again and as usual, there was a recurring theme. Over the years many sunroom companies have come and gone. Some because of products that weren’t designed for our climate, some from poor business practices or just plain lack of experience. Clients of these companies were asking if we could fix their sunrooms. While we would like to help them we just don’t have manpower or time to rectify their problems. Often the time and effort required just isn’t worth it. Many have heard the old adage “you can’t make a silk purse from a sows ear!”
It was nice however, to see our past clients, who stopped by and would explain the benefits of a sunroom to prospective customers. One lady exclaimed “Three seasons? I use mine just about all year!” Another commented on how they enjoyed Christmas day in their sunroom (with just a small space heater). We tell people that from minus 10 to 15 if the sun is shining on the windows, they will use the sunroom. Often they correct us and say they have used it when it was much colder (sometimes I love to be wrong).
The whole point is that most people don’t realize how a properly designed three season sunroom (built in Manitoba for our climate) extends their outdoor living season and quality of life. That’s why our clients are so eager to stop and talk about their rooms, (it’s like having thousands of good will ambassadors extolling the virtues of our product).
As most jobs we do bring us 3 to 5 referrals, we remain quite busy. So if you’re interested in getting your own sunroom, get started now, as things book up quickly. Visit our factory for a tour, or call (204) 940-3030 for a free design and estimate.
