If you’re considering a new verandah in and around Geelong, the roof is one of the most important aspects. There are a lot of options to choose, however, if you like the look of glass but want a roof that is both strong and durable, there is one solution that is a clear winner.

To illustrate the solution, take a look at the images on this page of a verandah recently built in Anglesea by Jaan McKenzie and his team from our Geelong Branch. The Anglesea architectural skillion verandah utilises a product called Sunglaze, a roof glazing system that is perfect for verandahs, patios and pergolas.

The roof glazing system features polycarbonate sheets, aluminium structural profiles and fasteners that provide a weather-tight solution. Two of the great features of the product are that it’s engineered to support wide spans and withstand heavy-duty challenges.

Anglesea verandah and polycarbonate

The real secret to the roof glazing system is polycarbonate. Most people will be familiar with polycarbonate roofing when installed on outdoor projects, sometimes in conjunction with metal roofing and often using the same profile as metal roofing.

The major difference with this product is that the polycarbonate is flat, providing a glass-like look. It’s a robust alternative to traditional glass roofing that offers durability and is low maintenance.

The other excellent feature about this polycarbonate roofing system is the range of options. For example, the Anglesea verandah pictured on this page features a clear colour, because the homeowners wanted a roof that truly looked like glass. However, other colours or tones are available, including bronze, grey, white, green and blue. You can also choose between a range of thicknesses and different panel widths.

Polycarbonate benefits

Like other polycarbonate products, this glass-like roof glazing system offers numerous benefits:

  • The key advantage of polycarbonate is that it provides shade from the sun while still allowing natural light to filter through. This makes it particularly ideal when your verandah – or patio, pergola or carport – is in a spot that is dark. It helps to create a comfortable and inviting outdoor space.
  • Polycarbonate is incredibly durable, capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions including UV radiation, hail and extreme temperatures without yellowing or deteriorating. This durability ensures that your verandah remains in excellent condition for years to come, requiring minimal maintenance.
  • Polycarbonate is lightweight yet strong. Its lightweight nature reduces the load on the supporting structure.
