Remodeling

Q: I don’t see what I need remodeled on your site. What other types of remodeling can TSA/McInnis do for me?
A: TSA/McInnis’ slogan is “We do EVERYTHING under the sun” and we mean it. We can accomplish any remodeling needs you may have or direct you to a different reputable contractor that specializes in your remodeling needs.

Q: How long does it take for my project to be completed?
A: The average amount of time it takes for a job completion is 4-6 weeks, weather permitting. Once the contract has been signed, we order the necessary materials for the job which may take 7-12 business days. Once we receive the materials, we will call and schedule a start date that fits your schedule.

Sunrooms

Q: What is a sunroom?
A: Basically, a sunroom is an addition or an enclosed porch or patio area designed using windows and doors to admit a large amount of sunlight. Sunrooms are often referred to as solariums, conservatories, patio rooms, garden rooms, atriums, all season rooms, screened rooms or patio enclosures.

Q: How much does a sunroom cost?
A: The price depends on the size and style of the sunroom and the materials, glass and any other accessories and options that you may choose. Typically a sunroom will cost from $10,000 to $30,000 but can be more as amenities are added. We will be happy to come to your home for a consultation and provide you with a price quote at no charge.

Q: Can I install a sunroom myself?
A: We recommend only professional installation by licensed and trained installers.  Since your home is often the largest investment you will ever make, we suggest protecting the future value of your home by only dealing with a company that provides you with fully insured and experienced sunroom installation professionals.
If, however, you insist on installing your own sunroom using our materials, you will void any manufacturers’ warranty and assume all risks associated with the construction of a sunroom.

Q: Which direction should a sunroom face?
A: A south-facing sunroom will provide the most sunlight while a north-facing room will provide the least sunlight. An east-facing room will be sunniest in the mornings while a west-facing sunroom will have the most sunlight in the afternoon and early evening.

Q: Can a sunroom be used year-round?
A: Yes. TSA/McInnis offers glass options for your sunroom which help keep it warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, and windows that carry the prestigious ENERGY STAR label. ENERGY STAR qualified products have been independently certified to meet or exceed strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Energy. By installing Energy Star eligible windows, you may receive a tax credit of 10% of the cost up to $200.

Q: What are the benefits of a TSA/McInnis sunroom vs. conventional construction?
A: A sunroom can be installed at a fraction of the cost and time required for conventional construction. A sunroom is designed to withstand the elements and will not require painting and maintenance like a traditional wooden structure. In addition, a sunroom provides more natural light for your family to enjoy and easily blends with the architectural lines of your home.

Q: Does TSA/McInnis offer a warranty for their sunrooms?
A: Yes. Our vendors are some of the most highly rated in the country and stand firmly behind the value of their products. With the quality workmanship of TSA/McInnis as well as the Lifetime Transferable Warranties of our sunrooms, you can rest assured knowing your sunroom will last and be of great value to you or anyone else that may own your home in the future.

Patio Covers

Q: What’s the difference in patio cover styles?
A: We have several different styles or types of patio covers.
Our most popular is Insulated Laminate Panel Roof patio cover. This style cover is extremely durable and strong. You can walk on it and its even rated for 140mph hurricane winds! This cover also allows the addition of fans, lights or skylights. When you decide to enclose your patio at a later date, this cover actually has a higher insulation rate than normal rolled insulation and makes an easy transition from patio cover roof to sun room roof. It also comes with a Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty.
Our second most favorite style of cover is a “W” pan cover called “Twin-Vee”. This is a higher end, top quality aluminum patio cover. The pans allow a smooth flow of water to the hidden gutter system while still remaining strong. It also comes with a Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty.
Our least expensive, but not lacking in quality is a flat pan style cover call “Rhino Pan”. This cover is made of a steel-aluminum mix and has a baked enamel finish. This cover lacks the frills of the other covers but can still accentuate any backyard retreat. It also comes with a Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty.
