Is Polycarbonate Roofing Too Hot?

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.

Benefits of Polycarbonate Sheeting

The following are additional benefits of polycarbonate sheeting:

  • High levels of light transmission – comparable to glass with added durability and lighter in weight
  • Many colours to choose from – different colours and degrees of opacity, allowing for customisation of your project
  • DIY is easy – these sheets are easy to cut and shape as desired, making them perfect for roofs of different size, shape and gradient
  • Higher impact resistance – highly resistant to impact and extreme weather conditions, making it a better option for protecting your vehicle from damage
  • Affordability – regardless of the initial installation costs, polycarbonate sheeting offers a relatively long life-span, making it an affordable, long-term solution

How to Install Polycarbonate Roof 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.
