The helpful tips listed below will assist you in our proposal process. Please email us at skylight@solarinnovations.com with any questions!

      1. What is the purpose of your structure? (ie. greenhouse, sunroom, pool enclosure, conservatory, etc.)
      2. Do you have an idea of the basic geometric shape of the structure? (for example – straight eave lean-to, curved eave lean-to, curved eave double-pitch, conservatory nose, straight eave double-pitch, hip end, 8-sided conservatory, etc.)
      3. Determine the structure’s details. Length, width, eave height, ridge height, roof pitch. Will the structure be attached to your existing building? Does the height include a basewall?
      4. Establish the glazing that will be used in the make-up of the structure. Does it have to be insulated? Would you like it tinted? What R & U values would you want?
