Outdoor roofing materials must meet the most stringent standards of quality. Exposure to the elements and drastic temperature fluctuations from one season to the next really put roofs over patios, carports, greenhouses, etc. to the test.
Even if some materials would appear to pass that test at first glance, the strain clearly begins to show after some time. When yellowing, streaking, and moss turn roofing unsightly it becomes a real outdoor eyesore. And in some cases even a safety risk: will the roofing hold heavy winter snows decades later?
The advantages of PLEXIGLAS®
No need to worry about that when you use PLEXIGLAS® roofing products. This brand-name acrylic glass has a variety of properties that make it a remarkable material—take for instance its impact resistance and stability, despite being lighter than glass. The advantage? Low weight makes roofing easier to install and reduces the need for massive supporting structures.
PLEXIGLAS® is also notable for its excellent transparency, which remains virtually the same as it was on day one, with no yellowing—even after decades of use. Cleaning PLEXIGLAS® roofing is easy too, because the various coatings on specialty varieties mean that dirt and grime simply wash off the next time it rains.
These and other properties make PLEXIGLAS® a sought-after material for patios, carport roofs, and greenhouses. Learn more about individual applications below:
