Finding a Reputable Patio Contractor in Rocklin, CA

Checklist for Hiring a Professional to Install a Screen Room, Sunroom,
Patio Cover or Sunscreen at your Rocklin, CA


Are you looking to install a screen room, sun room, patio cover or sunscreen at your Rocklin, CA, home? If so, use this handy checklist to help ensure you select the right company that has the experience, knowledge and craftsmanship to give you and your family the new addition that you expect and deserve.


Questions To Ask A Patio Cover Company:


Before hiring a patio contractor, make sure you’ve checked the following:

  • Does the patio contractor have a valid California State Contractor (CSC) license? Ask for their number. It is very easy to verify a contractor’s license at the CSC website, which will indicate if the license is active, the issue and expiration dates, company name and classifications (areas of work) that the license covers. The site also indicates insurer information and a list of licensed personnel, including salespeople.
  • How long has the patio cover contractor company been in business?
  • What permits are required for this project? How are they obtained? How much do they cost? How long does it take to obtain permits? How long after permits are received will work begin?
  • What projects have been done in the area? Ask for (and check) customer references. Be sure to ask for references of customers having similar work done recently, as personnel and quality can vary over time. Here are some good questions to ask references:
    • Was the project completed on time?
    • Were you happy with the contractor’s work? How about communication?
    • Would you use this patio contractor again? Why or why not?
    • Were there unexpected expenses? If so, for what?
    • Would you recommend this patio contractor to family members or friends? Why or why not?
  • Will I get a written estimate for the work? Is there a written warranty on the products and work?
  • How will change orders be handled? Change orders are additional costs to the customer during a project. These items are typically things the contractor forgot to include in the written estimate or requests by the homeowner that are out of the original project’s scope.
  • Who will be doing the actual work?
  • How long do you expect the project to take?
  • Are there options regarding materials?


While most patio contractors are ethical businesspersons, there are some warning signs you should consider problematic. They include:

  • The contractor asks for a large down payment or all money in advance before beginning work. Licensed contractors must demonstrate financial solvency to do the kind of work for which they are licensed. Down payments are not unexpected but only for a portion of the total work.
  • The contractor asks for you to obtain permits. Licensed contractors who are in good standing with local community officials should obtain permits for your project.
  • The contractor will only work nights and weekends. This is a sign the contractor is moonlighting and is unlicensed.
  • The contractor will not provide proof of insurance or only provides an occupational license, not a certification.


By asking these important questions, you can be sure you will pick a quality contractor like Sierra Sun Screens and Patio Covers that’s qualified and certified to install a screen room, sunroom, patio cover, awning or sunscreen at your Rocklin, CA, home.
