The terrace is a place of integration of the house with nature and natural surroundings. When it is well sheltered from cold and wind, you can also stay in it in winter. Modern terrace roofs protect against hot sun and provide moments of rest. So what to do to make the terrace allow you to freely admire nature all year round? Where to start?
Terrace roofing – which one to choose?
In order to successfully use the terrace all year round, we need to roof it. It protects against strong sun rays and rain. It can also become an unusual decoration, attracting the eyes of others.
The roofs of terraces in the type of a sail or an umbrella are extremely fashionable and effective. We can fold them or unfasten them at any time, which takes a few minutes. The fabric in a neutral, light color contributes to a romantic and calm atmosphere.
Another very classic roofing solution is the use of a wooden structure. This method is eagerly chosen by lovers of natural solutions. The wood can be combined with delicate curtains or lanterns to emphasize the traditional decor. If, however, we want to maintain the modern style of our space, we can consider a polycarbonate roof. It is a material that transmits light rays and at the same time provides protection against worse weather conditions. It looks light and innovative, creating a fashionable arrangement.
Building a terrace – where to start?
Before we decide to build a terrace, it is worth considering whether a frame system or frameless system will be more suitable for us. In the frameless system, we can choose glass panels that look extremely modern and luxurious. It also provides comfort to the residents who can admire the beautiful views without being limited by anything.
A terrace built in a frame system improves the insulation properties of the entire house and terrace. It may have a door locked on both sides with a key. However, when it is warm, we can transform it into an open space. Frames can be made of traditional wood or aluminum profiles.
