You’ll also want to check into the warranties each company offers on their products. It can vary greatly from shop to shop, with some offering two year warranties and some none at all. A warranty is always a good sign that a company will stand behind its work and provide you with a high-quality enclosure.
It’s also important to remember that the fabrication of the boat enclosure is only the beginning. Maintenance, repair, etc. are also an essential part of ownership and finding a shop that is able to provide you with storage, setup, polishing, window cleaning and other services is always a plus. At the very least, you’ll want to find a fabricator who will provide you with the guidance you need to care for your enclosure once it’s made and situated on your boat. In fact, many reputable shops will come to your boat and provide you with written recommendations on how to prevent damage and properly store your enclosure.
