Summer 2018 was amazing wasn’t it? Were you able to get outside and enjoy the sunshine on your balcony or terrace?
Don’t have one but would like one? If so, you’ve come to the right place to get you started.
Here are some great tips!
Fit for Purpose
The first thing to think about is what you’re going to use it for. Is it just to sit on your own to read a book or a place to entertain friends and family with a full-scale BBQ? Once you’ve decided you can plan the rest.
There are many balcony and terrace flooring solutions out there. From Wooden decking, stone or slate to turf or even gravel. It’s all about budget and requirements – remember you’ll need a sturdy base for furniture or a BBQ. But we have a solution that can meet both.
Sunrock Balconies install all balcony decking using EcoDek, a 100% recycled product made from Wood Polymer Composite which carries a 25 year guarantee. It is virtually maintenance free (you still have to clean it) because it doesn’t host algae.
Depending on your setting, you may like to consider glass flooring an alternative.
You will want something beautiful that adds an architectural feature too. Our infinity glass balustrades break down the visual barrier between your indoor and outside living areas but will also connect them. The feeling of space you will gain cannot be beaten and it will provide an essential safety barrier compliant with regulations.
If your outside living space is higher up, adding a spiral staircase, steps or gates may also be something to think about.
Do you want a gas heater or firepit? Great if you want to use your space in cooler weather.
Deckchair, sunlounger or dining sets, wood or rattan, there is so much to choose from – the possibilities are endless.
Some twinkly lights or a lantern provide a warm glow or for more light solar powered LED lighting is an option.
Here at Sunrock Balconies our dedicated team of experts can help and advise you on making the right choice from the variety of options we have on offer. We are certain it will make the difference you are looking for to your property. Get in touch, we’d love to have a chat about your project.
Thinking about adding a balustrade to your balcony or terrace?
Consider glass balustrades first….. here’s why.
Adding a balustrade to your balcony or terrace helps to separate a space for outdoor living from your garden or other external areas. It also provides and essential safety feature if the area is raised and very often adds the perfect finishing touch to your project.
Balustrades can be produced from a variety of materials such as wood, stone, plastic, wrought iron or steelwire. But it’s our Glass Balustrades that we want to talk about here! We call them Infinity Glass Balustrades simply because that is what they offer – an infinity view. But that’s not all they offer – here’s what other qualities they can:
Sunrock Infinity Glass Balustrades offer sophistication and elegance to your outdoor living space. They can transform your patio, balcony or terrace by allowing maximum light in plus an uninterrupted viewpoint. Our Infinity Glass Juliet Balconies provide the safety barrier you need for your family whilst at the same time allowing light to flood into your room.
Having an Infinity Glass Balustrade installed is most likely to add financial value to your property. The words ‘high end’, ‘luxury’ and ‘modern’ are all key words you can associate with our balustrades – words which are very often on the wish list of homebuyers looking for a modern finish and luxurious feel to their potential new home.
The nature of glass ensures that it fits seamlessly into most indoor and outdoor designs. Sunrock Infinity Glass Balustrades are beautifully engineered, ultra-modern and can be completely frameless. As a result, they deliver a wonderful feeling of space drawing the area beyond in and allowing light to flood in.
Believe it or not glass is very durable. It will not be affected by weathering such as rotting or fading. Our balustrades without a handrail are manufactured with 17.5 mm laminated toughened glass. Those with a secure handrail will be 15mm toughened glass. All rails and fixings are matching marine grade 316 stainless steel which is particularly good if you are by the coast or have a swimming pool. All glass is certificated.
Forget about oiling timber every year or replacing rusty railings. Life is far too busy for that. Sunrock’s Infinity Glass Balustrades are the perfect solution offering a simple cleaning regime rather than time consuming and laborious maintenance. All you have to do is wipe the glass over with a soft cloth using a mild detergent diluted in water. We’d suggest doing this every 1-2 months, depending on where you live and how the weather has been. Alternatively, how about asking your window cleaner to do it?
