Glass Balustrade on Patio

    We are thinking of semi enclosing our patio area by building a 1m high stone faced wall around it, and then erecting a 1m high glass balustrade on top of the wall, either pillarless, which I understand is more expensive, or with stainless pillars which is a bit cheaper.

    We would need about 25 linear meters.

    Anyone have a budget cost per m, supplied and fitted. It seems to be around 500 euros from what I have researched so far, I’m awaiting two quotes.

    Any tips or advice I should watch out for when doing this?

    No idea on cost.
    Tips/advice.

    Be aware of your planning height restrictions.
    Be aware of the building regulations, particularly Part K and the type of glazing used. Also Part A as the glazed screen has to be secured correctly and also allow for wind loading etc
