Polycarbonate Roofing Pros and Cons

Polycarbonate, a strong thermoplastic material, is extremely durable. Polycarbonate can withstand extreme temperatures both hot and cold. It is lightweight, too. These properties make polycarbonate a great roofing material for many purposes. Polycarbonate roofing is not the best choice for a whole house, but it’s great for roofs on other structures like decks and garages. Also, polycarbonate is used frequently for pool covers and roofing industrial warehouses. Polycarbonate panels are virtually indestructible, with a strength that is 250 times greater than float glass and 30x more than acrylic. They can be used for many outdoor purposes.
