Many homeowners opt for high-density shade-net when building a carport, but the benefits of polycarbonate sheeting may have you thinking twice about which material you choose.
Polycarbonate sheeting is a type of thermoplastic polymer which is a light-weight plastic which comes in various shapes, thicknesses and colours.
Its unique characteristics make it one of the most popular choices for most homeowners when building roofs for patios, conservatories, greenhouses and carports.
Due to its translucency, you may be wondering how well polycarbonate sheeting will protect your vehicle from the sun.
One of the biggest advantages of this roofing material is its ability to deflect harmful ultra-violet rays.
At the same time, it also has impeccable insulation capabilities, so heat is distributed evenly throughout the area. This is particularly useful for semi-enclosed carports.
The following are additional benefits of polycarbonate sheeting:
Depending on your project, installing polycarbonate sheeting is relatively easy to do yourself. With the right tools and a sufficient amount of DIY capabilities, polycarbonate sheeting is one of the easier do-it-yourself projects to undertake.
However, some installations require more experience and expertise, so hiring a professional may very well be the better option.

Hello, I hope you are doing well. I am wondering - I am looking into options for a 3m x 5m single car shadeport (for a Honda Jazz). I know it's not possible to have someone come and quote for this now, but might someone be able to give me an estimate of what this would cost - with clear, polycarbonate sheeting? Thanks so much. Take care, ~Danny
