Up until this week we really haven’t had a lot of nice weather. What happened to global warming? Thankfully, we seem to be getting back to normal (or slightly above) temperatures.
There are many variables that can cause delays but weather is the biggest factor. From April to June we can often lose almost a month to Spring rains and high winds. This just about drives us crazy when we have to reschedule jobs and shuffle the factory's production to keep the installers working every day. With our short building season, we need to be productive every day. The installers often work through the weekends to make up lost time.
If you're considering a sunroom, what does this mean? Be prepared for a wait! We've been pre-booking jobs since last Fall for this year, so it takes time to catch up. If someone tells you they can install a custom built sunroom in 6 to 8 weeks, at this time of year, be careful! How is this possible, when virtually everyone in construction is swamped with work?
Although you might wait a little now, it's certainly worth it when you get cooler weather like we’ve experienced this Spring. We tell people, up to about 15 below zero when the sun hits the glass, you'll enjoy that room with no additional heat (although our customers tell us they were in it when it was much colder). But in the summer (when the sun is high in the sky) the room isn't too warm, so you have a safe haven from the mosquitoes and the wild winds we have been experiencing.
If you would like more information about the benefits of a sunroom or a tour of our factory and display (265 Sutherland Ave.) give us a call at 204-940-3030. Tell them the Sunroom Guy sent you!
