How to Purchase

How to Purchase

Contact Phase

We have three convenient methods of purchase available for those looking to work with Solar Innovations® Architectural Glazing Solutions. Aside from these choices, we also deal with homeowners and architects directly.

Each of the contact methods below are simply options to choose from. If you’re left unsure of who or which company to contact for product bids or find yourself with unanswered questions, please feel free to call us directly at 1.800.618.0669.

Our Dealer Network

Customers will refer to the dealer for assistance throughout the course of their project. Dealers are often able to visit the job site and work one-on-one with the customer by aiding with the project’s design, permits, and installation. After referring the customer to the dealer, the dealer will handle all future service work or product upgrades.

Inside Sales Representatives

Customers within a six-hour radius who require installation assistance, or those who wish to act as their purchasing agent, can work directly with Solar’s in-house sales representatives. Customers who work with Solar without a general contractor or glazier must personally sign their product quote and drawings.

Outside Sales Representatives

Glaziers, general contractors, and architects who have an outside sales representative can work with that party. They will ensure they receive the best product information and communication experience possible. When working with these representatives, the customer can directly contact their Solar Innovations® project manager after signing project drawings.

Plan Phase

There are various stages of planning due to the large variety of products, configurations, and options Solar Innovations® provides. Our in-house design consultants can help coach you through your design project and inform you on the differences between options. We assist in determining many aspects that consumers may be unaware of, such as design pressure requirements in the area. Some projects require more planning and, due to the size of our structures, it’s important to get every detail right. For structures, after determining a location and deciding a configuration, your greenhouse consultant will help you create a floor plan and layout for your plants and accessories.  Not only do we offer a wide breadth of products, but we also provide customers with strong support from a knowledgeable, professional team. Whether you’re a dealer, architect, business, or homeowner, we coach you how to deliver the best product results.

Quote Phase

Solar provides several ways to quote and price out your projects. We offer online quote forms, which submit your product request to a specialist that determines your project’s requirements, or you can call us directly at 1-800-618-0669 and speak to a sales agent who will help start your project. Customers can also contact us on the website directly through our contact page. Our quotes have a quick turnaround, and we work hard to give the most competitive pricing when quoting the job.  Please think of us on your next important project.

Order phase

Our ordering process is streamlined and efficient, giving the requirements for your project, shop drawings, lead times, and shipment dates. For structures, we determine a building’s framework by its use, so design consultants begin by reviewing how to utilize the structure. For instance, our wood interior structures offer an excellent opportunity to blend into a home’s aesthetic – perfect for entertaining and dining areas. As another example, pool enclosures are typically subject to environments containing substantial levels of heat, humidity, and moisture, making aluminum frameworks the best option for these builds.

Install Phase

Prior to delivery, we prefabricate and assemble our products in our manufacturing facility. Factory-direct installation can be selected if the job is within a six-hour radius of the manufacturing facility. Solar Innovations® is registered in 23 states. Solar can send our install team, or we can provide on-site supervisors for projects with their contractors. Customers can also choose to complete the installation with a participating dealer from the nationwide dealer network, or we can provide a list of reputable installers in your area.
