If you order glass in your project, you can get a 100% clear view. Most clients choose polycarbonate for less weight and less expense, which has a translucent appearance, rather than clear view. You’ll still be able to see shapes and colors and it will still let plenty of light in to your convertible space.
Typically, Building Departments will require a frost protected foundation. Your Libart Project Manager can provide additional insight on this topic during your initial consultation.
Most clients treat their enclosure like a vacation home . . . they only heat the area when they are using it. This keeps overall operational costs more affordable and wastes less energy making the cost of ownership and use more desirable. Additional heating can be accomplished via in-floor hydronic radiant heat or forced air furnaces.
Each project starts and ends with the client and the Libart Project Manager. This ensures everything is planned fully and your expectations are met at the end of the project.

Libart has hidden fasteners and customized cover plates. This provides a seamless appearance which does not detract from your pool or patio . . . or your property value!
