5 reasons why you need a glass canopy

Chances are you’ve stood under a glass canopy many times – waiting to be let into your favourite shop, enjoying a drink outside your favourite restaurant. But we’ll guess you didn’t you look up and appreciate the feature protecting you from the elements, or spend time contemplating just how useful a glass canopy could be at home. No, of course you didn’t. But you could be missing out!

Glass canopies are a fantastic way to extend space, create shelter AND enhance the kerb appeal of your property. So let’s take a couple of minutes now to consider a handful of the plus points to a glass canopy in more detail, and why adding one to your property is such a great idea.

Why you need a glass canopy:

  1. You live in the UK. Let’s face it, even during the supposed summer months the UK weather can’t be relied on. But, with a glass canopy, you can enjoy your garden whatever the season – there’s no need to cancel that BBQ!
  1. You love being outside. For some of us, being at one with nature and able to escape outside – regardless of the forecast – is a huge bonus. A glass canopy allows for this. Sheltering you from the rain whilst still maximising on the positive powers of natural light and fresh air.
  1. You need more space. Feeling cooped up? Need to extend your living space but got nowhere else to go? Bring the outdoors in, with a glass canopy. Built to your measurements, a glass canopy can stretch over garden furniture so you don’t have to wait for a dry day to enjoy sitting out. Giving you all the benefits of an additional room, without the expense of an extension.
  1. You have bad habits. Don’t worry, we all do! Over 7 million people of the UK population smoke, meaning that – even if you don’t smoke yourself – it’s likely that at some point you’ll invite someone into your home who does. So, if you want to be a welcoming host, but don’t want any smells lingering indoors, a glass canopy offers an extremely hospitable alternative.
  1. They look great. Steel support bracket canopies, frameless glass door canopies, whatever look you’re after you can achieve it. Made to your exact measurements and specifications a glass canopy can really enhance the look and feel of your home, adding appeal and value to your property.
