Polycarbonate Roofing for your Pergola


What is polycarbonate roofing? 

Polycarbonate is an ideal roofing material for a wide range of applications. It is surprisingly durable, resistant to heat and provides ample protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Polycarbonate is a very strong and resilient thermoplastic material. Polycarbonate is also very lightweight and capable of withstanding extreme temperatures, either hot or cold. Due to these qualities it makes for an effective roofing material for many applications.

Is it Popular?

Yes. Polycarbonate roofing on Pergolas can withstand extreme amounts of force and are nearly unbreakable. They’re popular for deck roofing options, pergola roofing options,  outdoor roofing  options, clear roofing options and verandah roof options. There are even bullet resistant varieties of polycarbonate which are used in things such as police shields. These sheets are also very lightweight, making it easy to transport and install them anywhere. With the UV blocking capabilities of polycarbonate, whether it be perspex, clear perspex, plastic roofing sheets, PVC, or  acrylic sheet, it is a perfect material for constructing awnings for a patio or deck, or sunroom roofing. These properties of polycarbonate also make it the ideal material for the construction of greenhouses. Polycarbonate panels are resistant to extreme temperature either hot or cold, sunlight, snow, rain, and impact. This enables the panels to last for many many years without fading or discoloring while also remaining damage free from any various impacts over the years. And it’s affordable.
