What are the differences between tempered and un-tempered glass?
Tempered glass has been heat-treated and is more durable. The City of Calgary requires that all windows installed less than 24 ” off the ground must be tempered. All Desert Sun Patio windows are tempered, so we’ve got you covered.
What are the differences between Flat Pan and V-Pan roofs?
Flat Pan is a more refined aesthetic (smoother looking). Both can include skylights, be customized to scale, are weather-proof and composed of 100% aluminum.
How long does it take to install?
All Desert Sun Patios installations are weather dependent, but estimated installation time for a sunroom is approximately 1 week (takes 4-10 days depending on design). Estimated installation time for a patio cover is approximately 2-3 days
What are the differences between a 3 Season and All-Season Sunroom?
Three Season Sunrooms:
- 2″ aluminum framing with 2″ wall board
- Single glazed windows
- Can be heated up most days of the year, but it is not efficient to maintain this all year round.
All Season Sunrooms:
- Maintains heat all year round and is more efficient to heat
- Has 3″ thermally divided aluminum frame
- Has Thermal Double-Paned windows. This ensures that the room is optimally insulated.
Does my room have to have solid kick plates?
If the room is less than 24″ above the ground, we recommend a solid bottom. Solid bottoms are less costly.
What is the difference between a V-Pan and a Flat Pan Cover?
V-Pan is a more traditional Patio Cover. V-Pan covers have been used for many years with various V-type configurations.
Flat Pan is a New, Cedar Embossed cover. It is molded to look like a wooden 2×4.
What is the difference between the opaque Lexan material and the bronze Lexan?
The difference is largely aesthetic. The bronze has a more golden finish to it, while the opaque has a more glass-like appearance. We recommend the opaque for people who live in neighborhoods with many berry bushes around (Birds eat the berries and then “decorate” the lights.) There is virtually no difference in the filtration of light through either style.
What are the benefits of a Patio Cover in comparison to those of a Pergola?
Pergolas are typically installed as a means of providing partial shade and cooling deck/yard-space. They do not protect from the elements as effectively as Patio Covers. The two are aesthetically different as well, though both provide a unique space for hanging plants.
