Advantages of Polycarbonate Roofing

Polycarbonate Roofing is a translucent or transparent solution for your sunroom, decking area, conservatory, carport or greenhouse.

Why is Polycarbonate becoming more popular?

Polycarbonate is a strong thermoplastic material with many advantages, it’s lighter, durable and easy to install, so is suitable for tradesmen as well as the home renovator.

Another big advantage of polycarbonate panels is that they are resistant to heat, sunlight, snow, and rain, which enables them to last for many years without fading or discolouring.

The thermal efficiency element is another reason why polycarbonate is particularly popular for Kiwi DIY projects.

What types of Polycarbonate can you get?

There are two main types of polycarbonate and this is foam-backed polycarbonate sheets and clear polycarbonate sheets. Foam-backed is lightweight and more widely used for industrial buildings such as warehouses. However, many homeowners tend to use this material for carports and sheds.

Clear sheets are often used in sunrooms, patio areas, and other rooms that require natural light to be let in through the roof. Most clear panels also come with a protective film layer to filter out the sun’s UV rays.
