What is Polycarbonate roofing?
Polycarbonate roofing is a type of roofing material that is highly durable and able to resist heat and provide protection against harmful UV rays from the sun. Made from a strong and resilient thermoplastic material, polycarbonate is lightweight and can withstand extreme temperatures, making it an excellent choice for various roofing applications.
Are Polycarbonate roof sheets popular?
Polycarbonate is a prevalent roofing material because it can withstand extreme amounts of force and is nearly unbreakable. It is widely used for deck, pergola, and outdoor verandah roofing options. These lightweight sheets make them easy to transport and install almost anywhere. Polycarbonate has UV-blocking capabilities, making it an excellent choice for constructing a patio, deck awnings and sunroom roofing. Its durability also makes it ideal for building greenhouses, as it is resistant to extreme temperatures, sunlight, snow, rain, and impact. These panels can last many years without fading or discolouring and remain damage-free from various influences. Additionally, polycarbonate is an affordable option for roofing projects.
