We are really pleased with our glass canopy purchase from Tuin. We purchased the white, 2*4m with strengthened guttering to reduce the need for a third supporting column. We chose a glass roof to maximise our light as the canopy was to be installed on a north facing wall. The kit arrived on schedule, it was delivered in one wooden crate (fork lifted onto my drive) and was well packed with no damage. I found the canopy easy to erect, the instructions were clear and as long as you are comfortable with diy then you should have no problems. The trickiest stage was putting the 32kg strengthened glass roof panels in position - I'd invest in a pair of glass suction clamps to aid manipulation and reduce stress of having heavy glass panels above your head. I also purchased one perspex side panel to block the prevailing weather which was delivered in the same wooden crate as the canopy.
We have christened our glass canopy as our "sit-outerie" and it came into its own over Christmas, allowing us to socialise outside with other visiting couples - even when it was raining and snowing!

I took ages over deciding on this, paid a visit to them first to see one in place and then I had a number of question which I emailed to Tuin. Each was answered quickly and comprehensively. I would rate their customer service as excellent.
Finally took the plunge and ordered a 2m deep canopy. As luck would have it, it was scheduled for delivery just as lock down started. It was planned as a DIY project with some help, but now it was down to my wife and I! First problem was get into the crate it was delivered in, it comes very well packed. I now have lots of wood for my wood burner!
I watched the video, followed the instructions and used bit of common sense here and there and fired off another question. Putting up the frame was pretty straight forward with my wife holding on to bits as required. But the glass had to wait as it was too unwieldy for my wife to manage. The large sheets need two to handle them comfortably and my wife is too dainty for that, so they had to wait until I could get my son to help. We now have fitted them; they went in easily enough using a low scaffold platform I borrowed. It took a morning for 5 panels.
Now it is complete it looks great and performs exactly as we wanted, we are both very happy with it.
A great quality product, the whole thing is well engineered, feels really solid and has great quality finish to all parts. I can highly recommend it.
Thanks to all the team for all the help they provided in my early enquiries.
