Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to obtain a building permit for my projects?

Answer: Yes, most projects do. If your city requires a building permit, Malabar Products will factor that into the cost of your project from the start. Once your contract is signed, we will make sure all necessary documents are obtained before starting your project. The permitting process generally takes about 2-4 weeks. Once your job is constructed, we call the city to have it inspected. At Malabar Products we take care of all the details.

How long does it take to build my sunroom or screen room once the contract is sign to completed installation?

Answer: Six to ten weeks is a typical estimation for a project. However, each project is different, and the timetable varies depending on the type of project and whether a permit is required to construct your room. Before the construction of the room, there is a lot of paperwork being done for the permits and engineering and each city has different turnaround times on permits. Our reps will keep you informed throughout the entire process.
