Recently completed and with an asking price of £3,000,000, it’s the most expensive house built to date in Abersoch, North Wales.

Having outstanding architectural merit with the highest standards of workmanship, Sunrock Balconies were contracted to provide some of the unique and value adding elements to this truly jaw-dropping property.

Only recently completed, this property has many state of the art features and these were completed using glass and steel fixtures supplied and fitted by Sunrock Balconies.

Our expertise in creating glass balconies, steel balustrades and in this case glass balustrade supports for the staircase was called upon.

You can see in the picture below that the wooden staircase was complimented by a glass and steel balustrade design. Arriving at the first floor landing we created a steel and glass safety balcony that helps create a feeling of space and lets light move through the hallway.

In addition Sunrock installed a special glass floor using opaque Dream glass which was 33mm thick to allow more light into the hallway .

External Glass Balcony

Having provided some internal glass and steel features, we also were contracted to provide the glass balconies feature to the external first floor balcony.

On this glass balcony, steel was not present other than in the fixings at the bottom of the glass balcony. The idea here was to keep the view continuous and unrestricted.

It’s very much what is known outside of the trade by the public as a glass infinity balcony which relies on strengthened glass and minimal exposed fixings. You can see from the picture below that glass balcony is made up of five sheets of glass.

Each glass sheet is then fixed to the property at the base using steel fixings and creates a clean modern balcony that fits with the external architecture of this new build.

If you feel as though your home is not looking as good as it could, or if you want to boost curb appeal, then you have come to the right place.

Here you can find out everything you need to know about the upgrades you should be making to rocket the value of your property while also putting yourself in a position to make a quick sale.

1. Update the Colour

Believe it or not, adding colour to your home will make it appear way more modern. A bright entrance or a new door will add brightness while also adding charm to the interior. You can also have a new garage door installed to match your main front door, as well as adding a resin driveway. Either way, just make sure that whatever shade you choose, is the current trend. That being said, you don’t need to limit yourself to standard colours. Although white or wooden doors were once the norm, pastel colours are making a huge comeback.

2. Put up a Fence

A new fence won’t just increase aesthetic appeal, it will also increase security in your home. Fences should be wood or a similar material, to increase charm.

3. Add a Balcony

Adding a balcony gives people the chance to admire any stunning views your property may have. If you want to make the most out of your balcony, why not make it a glass one? This will give you the modern look and it will also make it much easier for you to make your property more modern and stylish.

4. Manage your Lawn

Lawn care is a fantastic way for you to increase the value of your property. It also helps you to get the overall respect of your neighbours too. If possible, you need to try and water and fertilise your plants. On top of this, you need to improve convenience where possible. this will make it easier for the people who may be investing in your home, to maintain the appeal you have worked so hard to achieve. If you feel as though you need consistency, then why not invest in some kind of irrigation system?

5. Go Green

Enhance your home by adding a rainwater collection system, or even a vegetated roof. Solar panels and solar lighting can also help your home appeal to eco-conscious purchasers.

6. Change your Shingles

At one point, many people avoided dark roofs because they felt as though they had ventilation or even heat issues. If you have a bright home, why not opt for a new roof, with a more neutral feel to add contrast? Lighter asphalt shingles don’t tend to add value as much as darker shingles do, so keep that in mind.

7.  Outdoor Entertainment

Extending or even adding entertainment features to your home is one of the best ways for you to increase your home’s value. Add an outdoor entertainment area with a grill or even a dining area to rocket your exterior appeal.

8. Add some New Lights

Nothing enhances your home like having great lighting. Soft lighting can enhance the design of your home while highlighting trees. Porch lights add a welcoming glow around the entrance of your home too.

9. Decking

Decking is another fantastic way for you to boost your home’s value. It’s easy to maintain, looks great and most of all, is able to withstand any weather condition.

10. Landscaping

If you do have some green space, then why not invest in it and try to make it look great? Rocks, trees, shrubs and plants are all very good options.

So, updating the exterior of your home has never been easier. Why not try some of these tips out for yourself today, to see how much value you could add to your property?

The sun is shining, the air smells fresh, and people are starting to get ready for summer.

The time has come for you to think about your property and how it can be improved before the holiday season begins. If you’re looking to do some work on your home this year, then a new balcony could make all the difference.

Why You Might Need A Balcony Upgrade

There are a few reasons why you might need to upgrade your balcony. Maybe the old one is starting to look tired and run down, or maybe it’s not big enough for your needs anymore. If you’re using your balcony often, then you’ll want to make sure it’s in good condition and can handle the wear and tear.

A new balcony can also add value to your property. If you’re thinking of selling in the near future, then a well-constructed, modern balcony could be the extra edge you need to get that sale. It’s an investment that will pay off in the long run.

Another advantage of upgrading your balcony is that it ups your curb appeal and makes you feel better about the property. Your guests will be able to enjoy your home a lot more too.

If you’re not sure what would be best for your home, then it’s always worth getting some professional advice.

Are you thinking about adding a glass balcony to your home? If you are, you might be slightly worried about the safety aspect of this.

The good news is that you don’t have to search for your answers any more because we’re going to be taking a look at glass balconies in this article. Keep reading down below if you would like to find out more about this topic.

Are They Safe?

The simple answer is yes. Glass balconies are one of the safest options that you could possibly look into. Even though this is the case, there are some strict restrictions that you are going to have to follow to ensure that they are as safe as possible. As a general rule, the glass needs to be strong, tough and durable. Ideally, you should be using a company such as Sunrock Balconies to design and install your glass balcony. They do this in strict accordance with the UK guidelines to ensure that every project they undertake is as safe as possible for the recipient. 

It’s important that you understand that there are height requirements, loading requirements and so much more when it comes to the safety of the balcony. You do not need to know these yourself if you are using a company for the project, but you should still have a basic idea just to be on the safe side.

The Benefits Of Glass Balconies

There are a lot of benefits when it comes to the safety benefits of glass balconies. One of these is that they are strong and hard to break. You might see glass shattering a lot in movies when someone is thrown through it, but how often do you think this really happens? Glass is an extremely strong material and as long as it is not exposed to a tremendous amount of force, then it’s going to be absolutely fine.

Glass is also an extremely long lasting material. It doesn’t degrade over time in the same way that other materials do, making it a fantastic option for your balcony. The last thing that you need is your balcony degrading and becoming unsafe. 

Are Handrails Needed?

Handrails are usually required if you are going to have a glass balcony in your home. This is to ensure that there have been the maximum number of safety precautions taken. If you can, take a look at the government regulations for handrails, or ask an experienced company such as Sunrock Balconies. Through either of these sources you will be able to get the answer that you need, and can continue with the process of adding a glass balcony to your home.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see that glass balconies are extremely safe. They are about as safe as you can get if you are looking to add one of these to your home or commercial property, so ensure that you get in touch with Sunrock Balconies who can sort this for you to get the ball rolling.


Does your home need a little more natural light? Are you looking to introduce a statement feature into your home?

Considering glass for your interior design is a bright and bold way to make these two things happen. Sunrock Balconies highlights how using infinity glass in interior design is a great way to make the most of your home.


Brighten Your Home With Infinity Glass


Infinity glass can bring natural light to small rooms, corridors and hallways in your home. There’s always one room in the house that sits in relative darkness – with infinity glass you can open it up to sunlight. Brighter rooms can seem more spacious and roomy, and natural light can bring out the best in even the darkest of colours. Infinity glass allows you to highlight the best of your home.


Make The Everyday A Statement


If you have a stairway or mezzanine level that needs a rail or wall, why not consider infinity glass? You’ll be taking a standard part of the home and making it a feature. Think of a glass infinity wall from your mezzanine where you can look out onto your open plan living room, or a glass-encased stairway rather than an obstructed view. Infinity glass takes the everyday and allows you to make a fun new statement that opens up your home.



Avoid Practical Restrictions To Design


Interior design is all too often faced with the restrictions of practicality. You may have to sacrifice a certain level of light in an interior room because you need a door. You might even be disappointed that the colour palette you choose for your home looks darker than expected. Infinity glass allows for a fun loophole to certain design restrictions, so you can keep the light levels, access routes and colour palette you intended from the outset.


Make Your Home Seem More Spacious


Opening up your home with infinity walls can naturally make a property seem larger. By removing the physical obstruction of walls, you are also opening up your home to create more space in a room. Light also naturally creates the illusion of space. The two combined work to make your home seem more open and roomy.


Heat and Ventilation 


Glass can have excellent heat retaining qualities, keeping the available warmth in a room. It also has the opposite benefit, as it can provide excellent ventilation. A particular example of this is if you choose to have a glass infinity railing over a full wall, as it can encourage air to circulate in the home, providing fresher, more breathable air.


Infinity glass looks great and provides space, light and even ventilation for a home. If you’re struggling to get around a particular interior design block, like a doorway or light access, it also provides a solution to this problem. Are you considering using infinity glass in your home? Contact us at Sunrock Balconies today for advice in integrating an infinity wall into your design plans. 


Construction is changing, there is a move away from traditional building materials such as brick and stick frame construction towards more progressive materials that are energy efficient and easy to recycle.


Glass is an excellent example; it lets in more light and reduces power bills – it can also be broken down easily after use.

If you want to improve your home’s energy efficiency, it’s worth considering the innovations in glass technology as it offers some exciting potential. And if you have space for a balcony, make it a glass one that adds more value to your home.


Building Trends


Nowadays, there is a trend towards sustainability and efficiency in home construction. This is partly down to the cultural demand for more sustainable homes with less environmental impact and a smaller carbon footprint. It’s also down to government initiatives in the same direction.

In response, the construction industry has adapted its approach and introduced new materials that fit the grade. Glass is one example. Using more glass in home construction allows more natural light into the home reducing power bills. Glass is also sustainable and easy to recycle.


The Benefits of Glass


Whether it’s more windows in your home, a skylight, or a glass balcony, using more glass in the construction of homes adds value and contributes to sustainability. Glass not only adds beauty to your home it also absorbs, refracts, and transmits light that can be used intelligently to increase comfort in the home and reduce energy consumption.

That’s not all; glass can be adapted in various ways to improve its performance. Windows, for instance, can be double glazed to reduce the amount of heat lost from home, and a glass balcony can help you save on carbon-producing building materials. They also let more light into the home.


Glass Innovations


Recent times have seen innovations in glass construction since the material offers such excellent sustainability potential. One example is sun protection glass which is made using a metallic overlay. This glass allows sunlight to enter the room without heating it up – it does this by retaining 80% of the infrared heat rays.

Another excellent innovation in glass technology that is still in developmental stages is the transparent solar cell. These solar cells will be built into the glass and provide the majority of energy for your home. A glass balcony that uses this technology only extends the power you can generate – and you can always sell the surplus back to the grid.


Glass Balconies


If you have space for a balcony in your home, it makes sense to build one. A balcony gives you extra floor space and an additional outdoor area that can be used for relaxing and socialising.

But why settle for a conventional brick balcony that blocks out the light.

Glass balconies allow more light into your home and more openness into your life. When you open the curtains in the morning, you can see far and wide instead of feeling blocked off and restricted. Furthermore, glass balconies are eco-friendlier and more progressive.

This blog post discusses the importance of sourcing a compliant glass balustrading system for your building.

Balustrades are an essential safety feature on many buildings, but they must meet all the standards to ensure that they do not present any danger to those who use them. This blog post will discuss some of the critical points you need to look out for when searching for a compliant balustrade system.

Facts about glass balustrading

  • Lengths of glass balustrades must be between 1200mm-1500mm. So it’s 2008m long, how many metres are there in that length?
  • Glass posts should wrap around the entire post and extend at least 50cm past the end. What is this called when you have a square or rectangle piece of wood at an end-post?
  • Glass balustrade posts should be more than 900mm apart. How many metres are there in that distance before you start walking again?

Infinity glass balconies are splendid decorations to add to your home. If you are interested in Infinity glass balustrades, you should check out Sunrock Balconies for more information.

Keep reading to learn the tips for sourcing the best glass balustrading systems.

Building Regulations for Glass Balustrades

The building regulations play an essential role when sourcing a glass balustrade system. As mentioned earlier, some regulations include that the glass balustrades must be 1200mm-1500mm in length. In addition, the posts must extend 50cm past the end of the post and should not be more than 900mm apart.

The types of materials that you can use for a compliant glass balustrade system also varies, but you need to check whether they meet these requirements.

Conformity To BS 6180:2011

The BS 6180:2011 is a standard that covers the design and construction of glass balustrades in buildings. Your contractors need to meet the required standards when designing, constructing, or installing all types of building materials, including metalwork for windows and doors, steel frames, aluminium glazing systems as well as staircases, and others.

Wind Load and Structural Calculations

You must take the wind load into account when designing a compliant glass balustrade system. It would help if you also considered the structural calculations to ensure the safety of those who use it and that it is structurally sound enough for all types of weather conditions.

How Suitable Are the Materials Being Used for the Location and Building?

Glass balustrades are suitable for most types of buildings, but you need to make sure that the materials you use suit the location and type of building. For example, experts do not recommend using steel in coastal areas due to corrosion risk factors such as salt spray and seawater containing corrosive metal.

Your living space should give you a sense of calmness while at the same time be pleasing to the eye.

Glass fences are excellent in achieving serenity because you can see further than when you have wooden barriers. Therefore, when you compare wooden fences with glass fences, you will find that the glass maximises your space.

You can even have a living space arrangement in your backyard if you so desire. The idea is to fence it with glass panels to make it lively and outstanding. You can use glass fencing in:

  • Swimming pool area
  • Balconies
  • Gardens
  • Backyard

Benefits of Glass Fencing

If you love the outdoors, infinity glass balustrades on your balcony will make your viewing worthwhile. But, other than having a pleasant view, glass fencing will give you the following benefits.



Purchasing quality fencing glass will serve for a very long time. You will not be in the habit of replacing the fence periodically. Buying durable glass will be cost-effective in the long run. You will use the infinity glass for many years because the glass panel is long-lasting.


Maintains views without obstruction

When you sit outside, the fencing glass will give you a clear view of your surroundings, and you can sit down and enjoy your vicinity.


Easy to maintain

You can be worried about the cleanliness status of your fences, but fences such as infinity glass balustrades will not accumulate a lot of dirt. The reason is that the panels are raised from the ground giving you little work when cleaning.


Bespoke designs

Do you like projects that are to your liking? Then, infinity glass will be an excellent fit for you. Depending on the particular space that you need fencing, either on balconies or in the garden, you will receive a bespoke design to your liking.


Ensure the safety of your children

Glass fences come in either frame or frameless glass panels. In addition, there are options such as posts, handrails, and even base tracks to keep your mind at ease.


Increase property value

The fact that glass panels are see-through, your home will have an aesthetic contemporary, and modern vibe. So, you can be sure of admirers who want to gaze at your house and wish they could have such.


Maximise your space

Glass fences offer an unrestricted view in every area that you install. In your garden, they can make your gardening space look enormous because sunlight can stream in without any inhibitions. But, of course, you can always install glass panels in small areas to make them appear larger.


At Sunrock Balconies we create outdoor living rooms using infinity glass designed to your specifications.  We offer a complete end to end service from design to quotation to full installation for both residential and commercial customers.  We can also consult with your architect, contractors or tradesmen to get the best results for your balcony project.

As a homeowner that possesses a balcony on the outside, you’re probably going to want to customise and personalise as much as you can.


As you sit or stand in this area of your home, you’re going to want to look and feel as pretty as possible. There’s something poetic and classy about owning a home with a balcony.


A Juliet balcony, in particular, holds a lot of significance due to where the name was derived from all those years ago. If you have one of these in your home, then you’re going to want to decorate it to the best of your ability to ensure you enjoy it and make it look like the most beautiful addition, here are a few fabulous ways to decorate it:


Create A Lovely Seating Area 


The Juliet balcony in your home is supposed to provide a lot of luxury. You won’t just be standing and leaning up against it when you look out of it. So, why not place down a few comfy chairs and pretty tables? You could create a small reading area or a sitting area for you and others to frequent in. You might even want to place down a desk and use this area as a study.


Add Plants


You can spice pretty much everything up with plants and other kinds of greenery. Plants obviously thrive on light and will benefit from being placed by the balcony. Potted plants would provide a handsome look, but you could also opt for vines and similar vegetation running up and around the window space on the outside too.


Paint The Window Frames To Match Or Go With The Balcony


In order to really make the balcony pop, you should focus on the colours of the windows and the balcony itself. Colour psychology is huge and really should be considered. When everything is lit up in the evenings, for instance, the contrasting colours of the frame and the balcony can make the entire area look beautiful. A firmly and expertly painted surround can make everything shine.


Make your Juliet balcony the Centre Of Attention


Don’t just use it as an added extra in the home. If the Juliet balcony is bang in the centre of the room, then it’s going to be the most noticeable feature in the room. The same applies when looking at the home from the outside. Ensure you have the balcony in the centre if you have only one. If you have two, make sure you place them evenly and symmetrically by each other.
