Sunroom Glass Enclosure Systems
Sunrooms have been around for centuries, but the modern sunroom is a whole different beast. A sunroom is so much more than a room with some extra windows.
In fact, it can be a stylish and comfortable extension of your home that you can enjoy all year round. The right patio sunroom boosts comfort, reduces energy costs, and maximizes property value.
At String Lights Outdoor, we’ve been building sunrooms in Houston — and all around the United States — for almost a decade. Below, our design experts consider the many creative ways that you can enhance your home with a glass sunroom enclosure system.
Sunroom Glass Enclosures with Sliding or Folding Patio Doors
A sunroom with sliding or folding patio doors is one of the most popular sunroom styles on the market today — and it’s easy to see why. These doors make it easy to invite the outdoors inside, and vice versa.
Not only are they functional, but glass patio doors also add a touch of luxury to any space. Sunrooms with sliding doors (and guillotine glass in particular) are trending for their chic yet practical design.
With vertical operation, guillotine glass is simple to operate and beautiful to behold. But your choices don’t stop at how the glass is mounted and moved.
Glazing Systems for Sunroom Windows
There are many different types of glass that you can use for your sunroom, each with their own distinct advantages. When it comes to choosing the right glass for your sunroom, there are three main factors to consider: durability, energy efficiency, and aesthetics.
At String Lights Outdoor, we specialize in helping our clients choose the right glass for their sunrooms. We offer a variety of glazing systems that are designed to boost durability, improve insulation, and enhance appeal.
Our insulated glass reduces energy costs, while our laminated glass reduces energy costs, blocks UV rays, and maximizes the structural integrity of the window. Meanwhile, our toughened glass can do everything our laminated glass can do, but also offers improved sound control.
Low-Emissivity (Low-E) Glass
This type of glass is coated with a thin layer of metal oxide that helps reflect heat back into the room. Low-E glass is an excellent choice for sunrooms because it helps keep the space cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Solar Control Glass
Solar control glass is also coated with a thin layer of metal oxide. But in addition to reflecting heat, it also blocks out harmful UV rays. This makes solar control glass an excellent choice for sunrooms that will be used frequently, as it helps protect furniture and flooring from fading.
