Update on Sunroom Window Shipdates

Just wanted to send out an update on vinyl window ship dates.

If you’re planning on getting a sunroom done BEFORE the next pollen season, get that contract in soon.

A project I ordered Custom Windows Systems windows for recently came back with a late February ship date. PGT Eze-Breeze is even further out into late March.

Even our new showroom windows are late in arriving.

If you want to protect your porch, furniture, etc from the pollen and spring rains, get with me as soon as possible to get the project rolling.

Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale on Sunrooms, Decks, and Everything In-Between!

We usually get in on the Cyber Monday shopping, but Black Friday is kind of messed up this year, so we wanted to start our sale early. Even though it’s kind of hard to sell a construction project in an e-mail. I think I have it figured out.

Since we’re still only a few years past our 30th anniversary, I’m going to offer a 3% discount on anything for 3 weeks.

Here’s the details…

  • Sale lasts for 3 weeks ONLY!
  • This offer expires on Tuesday, December 15 at 4pm.
  • You get 3% off anything from a huge project to cleaner for your windows.
  • You have to sign the contract and give a deposit during the sale period.
  • Projects will be scheduled as we can fit them in. Based on your job I can give you a date once you book.
  • Print out this e-mail or show it to us on your phone to get the discount.

I hope you take advantage of this. I mean, it’s kind of weird for builders to run Cyber Monday sales, so be sure to jump in on it if you’ve been thinking about some work at your home. Depending on your project, this discount could be worth thousands.

Enjoy your holiday!

Dave

PS: We had a few questions about the sale, and I wanted to post those as well…

Q: What if I don’t have HOA approval yet? That’s fine. I won’t actually do any work until you have approval. If they say no, I’ll refund your deposit.

Q: Can I also add in other discounts, like veterans or a cash discount? For this sale, I’ll approve adding in another 1% for vets or all cash/check deals. That would be a total of 4% off your project.

Q: Can I wait until Dec 16 to get the sale price? Absolutely not. You gotta jump in before then. If you even ask for the sale price after that, I’ll add more to the job. Just kidding! (But I’ll def think about it)

Q: What do I need to do to book a job? All we need is a deposit and a signed contract so we agree on all the specs, and I can order materials.

Q: Can you do up a Christmas card for me to put under the tree to give my wife her new sunroom as a present? Not only yes, but definitely yes. These are really fun to work on. I’ll not only do up a card, but I’ll wrap it up as a boxed present.

We Now Offer Rough Estimates Online

I wanted to let everyone know that we’re now offering online rough estimates.

We’re doing this for several reasons:

  • A lot of our clients are second homeowners and aren’t even in town.
  • Sometimes our estimator gets overloaded with appointments during the day. With online estimates, we can chain him to his desk at 5pm and make him do these online ones in the wee hours of the night. No worries- as long as we pay him and feed him regularly, he’s okay.
  • Our schedules don’t always fit your schedule.
  • It’s much faster for you.
  • COVID has driven everyone to offer contactless solutions as much as possible. We had already done this with payments and our actual work product, but all estimates were still done in person.

Be sure to check it out or recommend it to your neighbors.

Go straight to PriceMySunroom.com and all the instructions are there.

Thanks!

One of Our Projects Got Picked up by Michael’s

Something we don’t even do for income here at the business got picked up by Michael’s Stores for their Inspiration Wall, and I wanted to brag on the person responsible.

For those of you that have been by our showroom, you’ve probably seen our window flower boxes. We’re proud of them, as it throws a little bit of color into the industrial park and our large gray warehouse.

But there’s a downside. My flowers keep dying. We’re surrounded by concrete and blacktop, and we just can’t keep them alive. Frankly, I was getting tired of buying another $100 worth of flowers each month and spending an hour replanting everything.

Here’s a picture of the desert wasteland version-

So I cheated and bought a bunch of artificial flowers and turned it over to my crafty wife. Boom!

She redid the boxes, and I posted some pics on Instagram to brag on her.

Then Michael’s asked permission to repost them to their Inspiration Wall. This made me super proud of my wife and made her pretty excited about her flower design work.

She usually helps me out in the office, but if any of you want some great-looking flowers that won’t die around your sunroom, give me a call.

Need Help Cleaning Vinyl Windows?

I had some customers ask the other day about cleaning their vinyl windows, so I wanted to send out the same info for everyone else as well.

“We have the vinyl windows with screens in our porch. We love it! You gave us some vinyl cleaner that we can use for the interior that is not so practical for the exterior. Is there a safe soap and water option to clean the exteriors with? I am worried about the soap. Is there one that works using a hose?”

PGT Eze-Breeze makes a special cleaner and preservative that is great for the windows, but a little expensive. We sell it here in the office if you need it.

If you want to save a few bucks, use it on the inside, and you can use soap for the outside and the screens. But always clean the outside and the screens first.

For soap, I always recommend mixing equal parts Woolite and water in a spray bottle or a spray bottle that attaches to a hose. Below are links to order each.

Woolite ( https://amzn.to/2y7QC8y )

Water Hose Spray Connector  ( https://amzn.to/2zQM4nt )

Empty Spray Bottlehttps://amzn.to/2Zazv0W )

Here’s an instruction sheet from PGT Eze-Breeze that goes into more detail:

If anything is broken or needs maintenance, bring the affected panes by the office or you can buy spare parts kits here at the office.

In addition, here’s a short video I made that gives a few extra tips about cleaning them- DIY Vinyl Window Cleaning

Lastly, if you don’t want to clean them at all, we can do it. Just give us a call.

Thanks,
Dave

Upcoming Jobs Still on Schedule

I wanted to send a message to all of our projects in progress or upcoming. Here goes…

1. Everything is still on schedule. We are classified as Essential, and our suppliers are also classified similarly in their respective states.

2. Every company we work with is taking extra cleaning precautions as are we. We’re even cleaning and Lysol spraying all the tools.

3. We have a very open sick leave policy in place. Anyone with symptoms isn’t coming in. If someone sneezes or coughs, I promise, it’s allergies.

4. If anything changes with your project, we’ll update you as soon as we know.

5. Our office and showroom are open with generous room for distancing and hand sanitizer right at the front door.

6. For almost all of our projects, we don’t have to come into your house at all.

7. Let the guys know when they get there if you want extra precautions beyond what they’re doing.

8. All payments can be done by distance through our website or by calling in. Click HERE.

9. Let us know if you need anything or more updates. I’m also updating often on our Facebook and through the e-mail newsletter. Be sure to sign up for both. Facebook and the Newsletter

10. The best for last…once we’re done, you get some extra space to try to enjoy quarantine a little better.

Thanks and stay safe!

Get on Google and Review Someone Now

Reviews are important to small businesses, but getting them is like pulling teeth. Unless of course it’s a bad one, and we all get bad ones from time to time.

The next time you have a few free minutes, hop on Google Maps and review someone. Just pick someone you used, bought something from, or where you ate something recently and post a review. If you have pics, post them with it.

DON”T post a bad review either. Spread some good around. The business that made you mad? It’ll come around to them. Don’t worry. You do something good and share that blessing with a small business.

I just had a guy pressure wash the driveways at our offices and showroom. It had been awhile, and I had no idea how dirty they were, and he did a great job.

Here’s the before and after shot-

You don’t have to, but I took it a step further. I made up a testimonial graphic for him to use in his own marketing.

That’s it. Get on there and post a review right now.

We are still open!

We’re still open and continuing to help our clients enjoy the outside of their homes while stuck in self-isolation or voluntary quarantine. A large number of our clientele is in an at-risk age group, and we are working to keep them safe.

We’re finding that many of our past clients and new ones are sitting at home with little to do, and deciding to fix up their homes.

We pledge the following to help you through this tough period:

  • As all of our work is outside the home, we are able to maintain as much distancing as you need to feel safe. This way we can protect both you and our crews.
  • We primarily use our own employees rather than a constant stream of subcontractors being on your property.
  • All of our payments from the deposit to the final balance can be made completely online.
  • Our estimators are more than happy to deliver ‘no contact’ estimates and either communicate through an open door or completely by phone or computer.
  • Because an aspect of our jobs is to maintain critical structures so that frontline personnel can do their jobs, our company is in the process of consideration as an Essential Business. This will allow us to remain open longer should the situation worsen. This will also help protect our supply lines.

If we can help in any way, please let us know.

COVID-19 Coronavirus Update from Ocean Breeze Exteriors

I held off sending out an update for our business as long as possible, but now that there are cases in Horry County, I thought I should post one.

We are still engaged in full operations and continuing to complete all scheduled projects. Nothing has changed for us in the work we’re doing or our supply chain for new materials.

As a company we are doing our best to help everyone weather this storm better. We’re doing this by helping you enjoy social distancing and self-quarantine as much as possible.

  • Right now is the perfect time to enjoy the exterior parts of your home more.
  • As ‘social distancing’ becomes the norm for awhile, why not distance to your backyard or patio?
  • There is ample research showing the health benefits of being outside. Do it safely at home.
  • It’s not fun, and it can be scary, so now is a time to ease distraction and stress as much as we can.

We want to help you make the best of it while everything else goes to panic mode around us.

To make you feel more comfortable, we are also taking the following precautions:

  • We have hand sanitizer in the office if you come by the showroom.
  • The ability to make all payments and financing completely online is active.
  • All of our work is outside, and we don’t have to come into your home for anything for your projects. We actually have one going on right now for a couple that is in self-quarantine. It’s a large sunroom that will enable them to enjoy their condo patio without worrying about the pollen or people.
  • Estimates function similarly. If you want a contact-less estimate, just let us know when you call. Our estimator can call you from the front driveway and let you know when he’s there. When he’s through inspecting your project, he can text your estimate to you.

The best thing we can all do right now is take the appropriate precautions to keep everyone safe while also maintaining as normal a life as allowable. That’s how we bounce back best and quickest when this is all over.

Give us a call if we can help in any way.

Dave
