Hello, my name is Harry and this is my home improvement blog. Welcome! On this blog, I will be discussing many different home improvement and construction topics. I should explain that I am not a professional contractor. However, I have just come to the end of a home renovation project which took over 2 years to complete. During that time, I worked with dozens of different contractors in order to get my house into shape. I have spent hours working alongside plumbers, electricians, surveyors and roofing specialist. I learnt so much about their different trades that I decided to start this blog.


3 Types of Sheets You Can Consider When Contemplating Polycarbonate Roofing

Over the years, clear roofing supplies have become a favoured aesthetic in contemporary styled Australian homes. However, glass roofing can be exorbitantly priced, keeping it out of the financial reach of the average homeowners. But this does not automatically mean that you cannot enjoy the benefits of clear roofing on your property. Polycarbonate roofing supplies are a durable and flexible alternative to lass roofing materials. 

They are a viable solution to any of your roofing needs since they can be installed on top of virtually any type of structure or enclosure including greenhouses, sunrooms, conservatories and more. When you decide to utilise polycarbonate roofing supplies, you have to make a choice of the sheets that you would prefer. Here is a list of the three types of sheets you can consider when contemplating polycarbonate roofing. 

1. Solid sheets

These types of sheets have a distinctly flat appearance. They are one of the premium polycarbonate roofing options you could invest in since they are manufactured from the highest quality resins. Solid sheets have the ability to withstand much more impact than their glass counterparts can. 

In addition to this, they do not need to be excessively thick since the material is inherently resistant to breakage. Another benefit of solid sheets for your polycarbonate roofing is that they are ultraviolet-resistant too, which keeps your space sheltered from the harmful rays without compromising the degree of illumination received.

2. Corrugated sheets

If you have a uniquely shaped roofing structure, you might find it challenging to employ standard roofing supplies as it will be difficult to yield them to your roof's design. A great solution to this problem is polycarbonate roofing in the form of corrugated sheets. These sheets are exceptionally flexible, so they can be bent and shaped to suit the extraordinary structural elements of your structure such as domes and other features. Another advantage of corrugated sheets is that they are highly wind-resistant. Thus, you do not have to be anxious about premature damages, especially if you live in an area that is prone to gale winds.

3. Multiwall sheets

If you are looking to shelter a vast expanse of space, multiwall sheets will be your choice type of polycarbonate roofing. These sheets are typically installed over stadiums, parking lots and even swimming pool areas. Multiwall sheets generally are glazed during the manufacturing process, and this works to prevent thermal gain in the sheltered areas while retaining the sheets' ability to transmit sunlight.
