Polycarbonate Roof

polycarbonate roofRoofing panels made from polycarbonate are much stronger than panels made from traditional roofing material. Fiberglass panels do not provide the level of impact resistance and storm proofing that polycarbonate roof panels offer. In fact, polycarbonate plastic is said to be 20 times stronger than most traditional roofing systems made from fiberglass. Polycarbonate roof material utilizes multiwall polycarbonate sheets which effectively gives the roof even more impact resistance.

In addition to improved impact resistance and strength, polycarbonate roof material also offers the added benefit of protection from ultraviolet light rays in a time when UV rays are known to cause both types of skin cancer, melanoma and non-melanoma. Also, the costs of energy tend to be higher when using other materials other than polycarbonate roof material.

Polycarbonate roof paneling is also the preferred material when hurricane building codes are in place.  The rigorous building standards in places such as Miami-Dade county that experience strong storms and hurricanes have approved the use of tough, impact resistant, polycarbonate plastic and polycarbonate roof material.
