Based on the architectural characteristics: a veranda and a terrace are different concepts. What are the exact differences – learn from our article.
It should be noted that the veranda is a continuation of a private house, with a common foundation. In case when the veranda is attached to the house, it is glazed from three sides and has its own roof. As for the terrace, it is being built on a separate foundation, which is being built on the local area. The terrace is located, as a rule, separately and has nothing to do with the foundation of the house. Often the terrace is connected with the gazebo, when a canopy extends from the terrace, covering the gazebo. If there is no shelter, then the territory is more characterized as an open area for active pastime and sports games.
If we are talking about glazing of the veranda and terrace, then the best options for closing the terrace are sheathing with cellular polycarbonate or covering the area with a canopy. As for the glazing process itself, it is performed in several stages:
A frame must be attached to the foundation (preferably made of metal to ensure the stability and reliability of the structure).
Choose the height of the panels (depending on proposals and customer requirements). If you want the veranda to be lighter, then it is desirable that most of it be open.
Installation of the structure.
Polycarbonate is a material that has a number of advantages that prevail among other construction materials.
It is light in weight, it is convenient to transport it to any object that is not difficult to process (polycarbonate is easy to cut, sawn, drill). Working with such building material is just a pleasure. The flexibility and transparency of the polymer made it possible to use it in the construction of various buildings: from large-scale shopping centers to agricultural greenhouses and awnings over the porch or gazebo.
It is quite easy to install a polymer on a metal frame – for this you need self-tapping screws.
They are twisted perpendicular to the material, using special thermal washers. Open sections must be sealed to ensure that there are no open slots. .
