Transform your space with the elegance and sophistication of glass roofing and skylights from CGM. We specialize in creating custom-made glass solutions that seamlessly integrate into any architectural design.

Glass roofing allows natural light to flood your interior, creating a bright and inviting atmosphere while providing unparalleled views of the sky above. Skylights and glass roofing are great ways to make spaces seem larger with the potential of lowering energy costs. 

We can customize these options to adhere to aesthetic considerations including tinted or frosted glass and various metal finishes.

Here at CGM, we love new projects that reflect a client’s artistic vision. Contact us today to see if your dream project is possible.

Capitol Glass and Metals can provide various glass roofing solutions including, but not limited to the following:

  • Glass Panels: Large glass panels can be used to cover entire roof sections, providing uninterrupted views and ample natural light.

  • Glass Skylights: Skylights made of glass are installed within the roof to allow natural light to enter the interior space, brightening it up and reducing the need for artificial lighting.

  • Glass Atriums: Atriums made entirely of glass can serve as a central focal point of a building’s architecture, providing both natural light and a visually stunning element.

  • Glass Canopies: Often used as roofing structures over entrances or outdoor spaces, providing shelter from the elements while maintaining an open and airy feel.

  • Glass Greenhouses: In agricultural or residential settings, glass roofs are commonly used in greenhouses to create optimal growing conditions by maximizing sunlight exposure.

Code and Engineering Regulations for Glass Roofing

Things to keep in mind when choosing what style works best for your project. We always make sure to provide roofing solutions that keep your safety the #1 Priority.

Glass roofing solutions must adhere to stringent building codes and engineering standards to ensure safety, durability, and compliance with regulations. These regulations encompass factors such as structural integrity, load-bearing capacity, insulation, and safety considerations.

Building Codes: Glass roofing systems must meet local building codes and regulations governing structural design, wind resistance, and thermal performance. Compliance with these codes ensures that the installation is safe and meets the requirements for habitable spaces.

Safety Measures: Safety is paramount in glass roofing installations. Engineering designs incorporate features such as laminated glass, which minimizes the risk of breakage and provides protection against falling debris. Additionally, proper installation techniques and robust support structures enhance safety for occupants and maintenance personnel.

Energy Efficiency: Glass roofing solutions are designed to maximize energy efficiency by optimizing insulation properties and minimizing heat transfer. This not only reduces energy consumption but also enhances comfort and reduces heating and cooling costs.

Maintenance Requirements: Glass roofing systems are engineered for ease of maintenance, with considerations for access points, drainage systems, and cleaning protocols. Regular inspections and maintenance help ensure the longevity and performance of the installation.


CGM closely follows all engineering standards for each project and works with other experts to ensure high-quality and safe results. For more engineering information, please visit this link.

Engineering Standards: Glass roofing designs are engineered to withstand various environmental factors, including snow loads, wind pressure, and seismic activity. Engineers employ advanced techniques such as finite element analysis (FEA) to simulate stress distribution and optimize structural performance.
