Frequently Asked QuestionsThe most common questions from clients about building a sunroom in northern Michigan.
What is the first step to getting info on a sunroom?
We ask our customers to visit our showroom first. They’ll see the components and pictures and we’ll go through the building process with them. Next we will make an appointment to go to their home for a free estimate. There we will see their application and take the necessary measurements to give them an accurate cost for their project. Then they make their decision in their time frame— no pressure!
What sizes are available?
How do I heat my sunroom?
We recommend a supplement heat source for the sunroom. Smaller rooms work well with a PTAC unit. Gas log or pellet stoves work well in larger rooms and must be vented.
Can my sunroom be shingled?
What do I put on the floor of my sunroom?
Can I put blinds in my sunroom?
Can I remove the vinyl siding from the wall of my home?
Yes, we have installed paneling, barn wood, or T&G (tongue and groove) pine on many of our rooms. It takes the “porch” feel out of the room.
Can I put a hot tub in my sunroom?
Will I have steps in my sunroom?
What about critters getting under my sunroom?
What is the service area of The Sunroom Factory?
We will go anywhere in northern Michigan. Most of our sunrooms have been built to enjoy the beautiful views available in northern Michigan.
What is the contracting process?
When we contract a sunroom it takes 4 weeks to get our products. When we’re called with delivery dates we call the customer with an installation date. While building the room in the shop, we schedule Miss Dig to mark the area if necessary and pull the permits. Once the installers are on site it takes 3-7 days to build the room.
