Polycarbonate Roofing

Anyone who has dealt with roof leaks or damages will know that a good roof is critical for a livable home. Without it, whatever lies beneath matters little. Commercial buildings, industrial facilities, outdoor shelters, skyscrapers, greenhouses, automobiles, and all else in-between require a reliable means of shielding us from the elements, and the roofs over our heads play this role.

The construction industry has seen many projects shift from glass and acrylic solutions in favor of polycarbonate roofing alternatives. When considering new structures or renovating existing ones, more and more people are turning to polycarbonate roofing panels due to the material's unique benefits across the board. The specialists at ShapesPlastics are proud to continue facilitating the provision of custom polycarbonate solutions to clients across North America.

Let's take a look at what polycarbonate roofing is all about and just how it can help you achieve the vision you have in mind for your next construction, renovation, or DIY project.

Polycarbonate Sheets

Polycarbonates are a class of thermoplastic polymers that contain carbonate groups in their chemical makeup. Their exceptional toughness, durability, and molding, and thermoforming capacities have made them popular materials used in the construction, engineering, manufacturing industries.

Why Choose Polycarbonate Roofing?

Polycarbonates offer a variety of benefits that range beyond the essential functions of keeping the elements at bay. Here are some of the qualities you should keep in mind the next time you have a roofing project on your hands:

Lightweight Material

The weight of the material used in roof construction will impact various aspects of your roof's performance and how you can interact with it. Polycarbonate roofing sheets are significantly lighter than glass, acrylic, and other traditional materials, especially since roofing materials must be raised to the top of any structure in question.

Exceptional Durability

Polycarbonate is highly resistant to scratches, cracks, and scrapes, making it an excellent material for long-lasting roofing. Whether it is dropped or impacted by hailstones, storm debris, or heavy weather, you can rely on it to go the distance.


Ease of Use in Construction

The installation of polycarbonate roofing is relatively easy compared to shingles, glass, and other common materials. It's lightweight yet durable nature makes it easily manipulated by construction workers, drastically shortening the time to complete projects. Polycarbonate is also easily transported to and from construction sites while reducing the environmental impact of trucking and other fossil fuel-based transportation means.



Whether you seek roofing sheets for small to medium-sized projects or bulk supplies for massive projects or retail purposes, polycarbonate sheets will prove a pocket-friendly choice. Savings will come in low initial costs, reduced need for damage replacement, long material life, and savings from lowered construction and labor costs.


Protection from Ultraviolet Rays

Ultraviolet light is a part of the natural light spectrum that can cause harm to human beings exposed to it for too long and is the reason we're told to always put on sunscreen when going out in strong sunlight. Polycarbonate roofing provides the capability to shield people from these potentially harmful rays while still allowing natural light to pass through where desired in such places as greenhouses, office complexes, private residences, and more.



Certain spaces call for quiet more than others. Office spaces (meeting areas, conference rooms, etc.) and relaxation areas such as home gazebos will benefit from polycarbonate sheets' sound barrier effect.
