The material of the roof is one of the most important factors to consider. The glass roof will add a luxurious touch, over other types of glazing.
Another benefit of glass is it can be coated with a very thin layer of titanium dioxide. This turns the glass into a self-cleaning glass and will mean you save time on cleaning your carport.
Also, it is safer as you will not need to climb steps or ladders to get above the carport roof to clean it.
For the self-cleaning glass to work you will need to have the pitch of the roof set at a minimum of 10º. Our team of advisors can work the pitch of the roof of the carport out for you on request.
Another reason to choose glass over multiwall polycarbonate glazing is that glass is solid, so you don’t get water ingress.
Unlike multiwall polycarbonate that is made up of plastic cells. The sheets are taper at the ends but can get condensation inside the cells and collect water over a period of time.
The water will normally evaporate in the summer months, but unsightly watermarks and green algae can be left inside the cells.
