A little about us. My name is Chris Copeland, and my wife, Lori, and I own and operate Skyline Sunrooms and Patio Covers. For as long as I can remember, I have always enjoyed being out of the house, relaxing, dining and entertaining family and friends on the patio or deck in our backyard. As a young man after college, I had an opportunity to take a job as an apprentice Patio Cover installer for a local family-owned business. It became a perfect fit for me to work with and help homeowners create an enjoyable outdoor environment on their homes.
In the Spring of 1987, after installing thousands of Patio Covers and Sunrooms and training and managing multiple work crews in the construction trade, Lori and I determined that “We can do this a better way.” We decided that adding a Patio Cover or a Sunroom to your home should be an exciting, rewarding, and even fun experience for our customers. With help from family and friends (many of whom have become our employees) we opened Skyline Sunrooms and set our plans in motion. And it worked! Our customers appreciated a job well done.
With referrals and “word of mouth”, our company grew quickly and steadily. Since my experience and background was in the installation trade of the business, we achieved a reputation of offering the highest quality installation services, and we were soon selected by the prominent retail Home Centers as their authorized contractor of the original “California Sunrooms” and “Alumawood Style” aluminum patio covers.
See if you remember some of these companies:
- National Lumber – 1990
- Westy’s/Western Lumber – 1991
- Builder’s Emporium – 1993
- Home Base – 1999
- Home Depot – 2003 to 2015
We’ve outlasted almost all of these companies and operated in three retail showroom locations in San Diego, Encinitas and Vista. With the economic downturn and the decline of the housing market in 2007, we had to make business adjustments. We vacated our retail showrooms and consolidated our Corporate Offices/Showroom/Warehouse to one location in the attractive Gillespie Business Park in El Cajon/Santee area. We have retained our most dedicated and talented employees who we refer to as our “All Star Team”, assuring that our customers receive the best service and highest quality installations in the industry.
Each and every day we receive Customer Satisfaction Surveys, reviews and testimonials from our customers informing us that Skyline Sunrooms is the best contractor that they have ever done business with. As we have from the start, we give our customers what they want – a great business experience and an awesome Home Improvement at a great price!
