Corrugated Roofing Sheets for Homes, Pergolas, and Gazebos

Polycarbonate corrugated roofing sheets are a type of roofing material made from polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is a strong yet light thermoplastic material. One of the most unique properties of this material is that it allows maximum sunlight while blocking harmful UV radiation.

Polycarbonate corrugated roofing sheets are a popular choice in the construction and architecture industries because aside from the unique properties such as lightweight, strength, and transparency, they are also very flexible and easy to work with. Wouldn’t you prefer to work with a material that allows you to explore more creative designs?

Now that you know what polycarbonate roofing sheets are, let’s talk about six unique properties you also need to know about polycarbonate corrugated roofing sheets.

Lightweight and Durable

You might be aware that polycarbonate corrugated roofing sheets are lighter than steel and other roofing materials, but did you also know that they can last up to 20 years (depending on the climate and maintenance) before you even think of replacing them? This is because polycarbonate is highly durable, resistant to impact, and can withstand harsh weather conditions.


Polycarbonate corrugated roofing sheets are highly resistant to heavy inclement weather conditions such as strong winds, heavy downpours, and even damaging hail.

UV Resistant

We all know the dangers UV radiation poses to human health, especially the skin. Polycarbonate roofing sheets can block 100% of UV radiation, which is why it is preferred for pergolas and gazebos. You and your family can enjoy your dinners or weekend brunches while being protected from the dangerous UV rays.
