The choice of material for your roof plays a huge role in your overall comfort and protection. Over the years, the use of polycarbonate sheets has been a popular choice in different industries for a variety of reasons.

Whilst it is generally used in greenhouses, polycarbonate sheets likewise make great outdoor/patio roofing and are widely used in commercial walkways and spaces. If you are thinking of investing in polycarbonate roofing for your UK property, here are more reasons to do so:

Lightweight yet virtually unbreakable

Polycarbonate sheets are very lightweight but are durable that they can withstand virtually all types of forces. Because of their lightweight composition, they can easily be transported and installed. Because of this, labour costs are less than the usual.

Less toxic than PVC

Polycarbonate might be a normal type of plastic material, but unlike its more popular counterpart, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a polycarbonate sheet is made with more recyclable materials. That makes it a more eco-friendly type of plastic.

Weather resistant

Extreme heat and cold resistance are among the other benefits of having polycarbonate sheets. They are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, making them a perfect choice for your outdoor roofing. In addition, it has great UV blocking properties. That said, it is a common choice for awning, walkway covers and canopies.

Aesthetic flexibility

Unlike glass or vinyl alternatives, polycarbonate sheets are available in different colours and shades. It can be clear, translucent, opaque, and can come in different colours that will match your property. One’s freedom to choose which polycarbonate sheet to use for a specific purpose is seen as an advantage by most buyers.

Polycarbonate sheets will continue to be used in various industries because of these advantages. Enjoy the perks of having one by using it in your own property.
