If you love gardening or just love the sun, you may consider building a glass roof sunroom to complement your home. A glass roof sunroom, commonly called a conservatory, is generally a 3- or 4-season room with a glass or polycarbonate roofing system. These rooms are great for growing plants or even small trees because they offer generous sunlight all year round.
