Choosing Materials

Choosing the right materials for your sunroom is crucial, and at Brady-Built, we opt for quality and clarity with our tempered glass solutions. While some manufacturers may use polycarbonate materials like Lexan, known for its toughness and impact resistance, it lacks the longevity and visual clarity provided by glass. Here’s why we prefer tempered glass in our designs:

Safety and Durability

The glass used in Brady-Built sunrooms is not only tough; it’s tempered to enhance safety. When tempered glass breaks, it shatters into small, blunt pieces that are less likely to cause injury, making it ideal for applications where both strength and safety are priorities.

Weather Resistance

Glass is highly resistant to scratching and does not yellow over time, unlike Lexan, which can suffer from visual degradation due to UV exposure and scratching. Our tempered glass maintains its clarity and beauty for years, making it a superior choice for enhancing your home.

Energy Efficiency

Our commitment to energy efficiency is reflected in our use of Split Silver Titanium Glass, which incorporates advanced coating and tinting technologies to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures in all seasons. Here’s how our glass technology benefits you:

Climate Optimization

The coating and tinting formulas of our Split Silver Titanium Glass are specifically designed to perform well under a variety of weather conditions and temperatures. This glass helps to maximize sunlight intake during winter while minimizing heat gain in the summer, providing optimal insulating properties year-round.

Glazing System

Our proprietary glazing system uses structural silicone to efficiently seal the glass to the sunroom’s exterior. This not only enhances the structural integrity of the sunroom but also ensures long-term reliability and weather resistance. Our silicone seal remains flexible and effective against UV rays, drastically outperforming the rubber seals commonly used by competitors.

Custom Options

At Brady-Built, we understand that every homeowner’s needs are unique. That’s why we offer customizable glass options:

We work closely with Guardian Industries, the world’s largest glass manufacturer, to provide a variety of high-quality, two-pane insulated glass options.
