Many homeowners prefer to use the same roofing material as the rest of their house to ensure that their homes have a cohesive look. When you choose this option, all your roofing materials will be the same, and it's much easier to simply add onto the existing roof than to engineer an entirely new one. Using the same roofing material as your house also makes it possible for you to simply create a sunroom out of a covered patio that your home already leads out to.
Choosing Glass Panel Sunroom Roofing
Glass panel sunroom roofing is a popular selection because not only will the sides of the sunroom allow you to maximize the sunlight, but the roof itself does as well. Glass panel sunroom roofing serves as a huge skylight and really gives the impression that you are outdoors while you're still in an enclosed space.
Other Roofing Options for Your Sunroom
In addition to these common types of sunroom roofing options, there are various other options as well, such as curved eaves that feature curved glass that forms the corners of the sunroom, cathedral roofs that provide a beautiful, vaulted appearance in your sunroom, and the mansard style that most often is seen on Victorian-style homes and features two different slopes on each side of the roof.
