glass roof

From the category of outlandish features of the architecture of shopping centers and swimming pools, glass roofs gradually moved into the category of more affordable delights, which gave rise to their popularity in private construction. Not being more insanely expensive, the technology began to be actively used in the construction of country cottages and houses.

glass roof house

Glass attic, winter garden, indoor pool, terrace, gazebo with glass walls and roof — all these elements are actively used in modern private construction. At the same time, their reliability is in no way inferior in strength to standard roofs.

  1. The glass roof in the house must have a slope, that is, be pitched so that snow and rain do not linger and do not increase the weight of the structure.
  2. The bearing base is often made of aluminum, which has useful properties, such as lightness and strength, and the absence of a tendency to corrosive processes.
  3. The design of double-glazed windows is somewhat different from ordinary windows. Outside, there is always durable tempered glass, while inside a triplex sheet is installed — laminated glass, where the layers are interconnected by a polymer composition or film.
  4. The tint film on the upper surface of the glass, formed by vacuum deposition of the thinnest polymers, creates UV protection, makes the room invisible from the street, reflects heat, keeping the house cool in summer.
  5. If desired, you can lay the wiring to connect the controlled flaps, which can be opened and closed from the remote control.

Panoramic glass roof

Many dream of falling asleep looking at the stars. This dream can be realized with an invisible roof, the shape and design of which can be very diverse. If your choice is a flat glass roof, it is provided with a heating system for double-glazed windows to melt snow. To do this, electrical equipment is laid along the perimeter of the profile, which can be turned on and off as needed.

If the glass roof is made in the form of a dome, hemisphere, arch or inclined plane, this implies the presence of a more complex and reinforced frame made of aluminum or, less often, steel profiles. The main difference between a panoramic roof is a large area of ​​glazing, which sometimes affects the walls of the house, turning your home into a futuristic architectural delight. The main thing is to think over in advance the convenience of maintaining such a design, including maintaining the cleanliness of the glass.

Glass roof for terrace

Being a kind of link between the house and the surrounding nature, the glass roof terrace looks very light, stylish and elegant. Such a roof does not interfere with enjoying the view of the starry sky, in addition, it does not interfere with the penetration of natural light into the house at all. The glass roof of the terrace is made of high-strength sheets with a minimum thickness of 10 mm. Even serious loads are not able to break and somehow damage such a roof.

When installing it, you need to correctly calculate the required cross section of the support beams. As a rule, they are made with a margin of safety, since you need to rely not only on the weight of glass, but also on snow, especially for residents of regions with heavy rainfall in winter. This structure is attached to the house with steel anchors. The slope of the roof should be 8 degrees or more. This will help prevent rain from accumulating on it. Also, do not forget about the arrangement of the gutter and drainage system. This will significantly extend the life of the floor.
