600 Reasons To Avoid Polycarbonate Roofing!


I just got called to an emergency covering over job. This was caused by a summer hail storm. I bet they wish they'd paid extra for glass now!

6mm toughened (which is min code) is real hard to break. I spent about 15 mins trying to smash a 6mm toughened double glazed unit out.

I used this material on a shed at my house. It was properly installed but 1 strong wind storm peeled a couple of pieces off. We just finished building a real roof on it.
