Polycarbonate Roof Sheeting – Everything You Need to Know

Polycarbonate roof sheeting is fast becoming the preferred roofing material for many buildings, including commercial, industrial and residential.

However, many people are still unsure about what makes polycarbonate roofing one of the best choices for your roof.

In this article, we discuss the topic in detail.

What is Polycarbonate Roofing Made from?

These roof sheets are made from thermoplastic materials known as polycarbonates, a synthetic resin in which polymer units are linked through carbonate groups.

In layman’s terms, polycarbonates are durable, mouldable and rigid by nature, making them a brilliant thermoplastic material for roofing.

Furthermore, polycarbonate sheets are lightweight and are resistant to extreme weather conditions.

Different Types of Polycarbonate Roof Sheeting

Foam Backed Polycarbonate Roofing

Mostly used on commercial buildings, foam backed polycarbonate sheeting closely resembles the widely used metal corrugated sheeting but weighs much less.

The building is better insulated with this type of sheeting, thanks to the foam backing on the bottom side of the panels.

Additionally, the protective coating on the upside of the sheeting ensures that UV rays are deflected.

The combination of these two features means that the sheets resist the transfer of heat in both directions, providing consistent temperature inside the building all year round.

Lastly, this type of roof sheeting can be used on low-slope to flat roofs, adding to its versatility.

Clear Polycarbonate Roofing

This type of sheeting is mostly used on conservatory roofs because their transparency resembles the glass sheeting which is more traditionally used for conservatories.

These sheets are extremely versatile as they can be tinted in different colours to minimise the amount of light that transmits through them.

Because of their transparency, this type of sheeting is perfect for other buildings such as greenhouses, sunrooms, patios, solariums and can even be used as a skylight in darker areas of a building.

Benefits of Polycarbonate Roofing

Polycarbonate sheeting is an affordable option for most roofs and are extremely lightweight which makes installation much easier. Easy installation also means less time is spent on installing the roof, reducing the overall time spent on a project.

Because it’s lightweight, it’s not necessary for a heavy-duty frame. Consequently, the overall cost of the frame and supporting structure is reduced.

Polycarbonate sheets are flexible and easy to mould into any desired shape. This opens up options when it comes to design, making domes and other curved profiles possible for your roof.

Furthermore, these sheets have an impressively high resistance to impact, extreme weather and fire. These characteristics can drastically extend the lifespan of this plastic roof sheeting.

Polycarbonate sheeting can last anything between 10 and 20 years, depending on the elements it’s exposed to.
