Glass is being used everywhere for everything. It structures have become very popular during the recent years. Glass canopies are used for patios and other outdoor spaces throughout the year. It adds more beauty to the house during the spring and summer time. The canopies protect from all the elements of the world and helps in keeping the space dry and warm. They can be built on an already existing structure or can be constructed as a free standing structure as well.

Glass canopy, even though popular for beautifying the home, are also used for various purposes and businesses. Schools may use them for additional learning space with the ambient of the nature. Canopies are used for covering loading and unloading areas in warehouses. Homes use them for letting the people sit outside and enjoy the rays of the sun while they are still protected by the UV rays.

Walkways are generally covered by canopies in order to keep them dry. They can be designed in a variety of sizes and shapes which brings style to the buildings.

Canopies can be made from different materials other than glass as well, like steel (which are used for stainless steel handrail), timber (which are used to make furniture) and GRP (glass reinforced plastic).

The glass canopy does not block the sunlight and hence the area is bright and well lit throughout the day. Plants can be grown under these canopies for decorative purposes. It produces effect that is similar to greenhouse for the plants to grow under them. The marchioness offer a sleek and contemporary look than the fabric ones.

Modern shapes and curves can be created by using glass canopies. Fabric canopies wear and tear more often due to severe weather conditions like rain and wind while glass ones last longer and can withstand the environmental impacts. Glass canopies are preferred for protection against rain, as fabric and wood may not be of much use under these circumstances. Even though glass canopies are more expensive, they need not be replaced as frequently as the other materials.

The glass canopies save a lot of energy as light is transferred into the house through the glass. Tinted marchioness can also be installed in order to save the power and load spent by the air conditioner. People prefer to install these canopies for a practical purpose as well as for aesthetic reasons. Good drainage is very important for the roof while installing them.
