What Are The Benefits Of Corrugated Polycarbonate Roofs - Tuflite Polymers
You can have a roof made of glass, metal, slate, tiles, and shingles for your property. But, polycarbonate is what you must use when you are looking for roofs that are transparent and durable at the same time. And to be even more precise, corrugated polycarbonate roofing sheets are what you must choose for superior performance that can also provide energy saving through daylight harvesting. Whether residential or commercial, these sheets can be your wisest option. Why? The blog below will answer your question.
Corrugated polycarbonates are heavy-gauge materials that also incorporate a UV protection layer on one side. This means that the sunlight will not penetrate within, thus reducing the effects of yellowing and degradation of the sheets, which in turn makes the sheets long-lasting and much durable than other materials. Also, corrugated sheets offer superior corrosion resistance against many organic and inorganic chemicals. All of this and more helps these sheets face even the most aggressive environmental conditions effortlessly.
Corrugated polycarbonates are easy to clean. All you need is a hose and a cloth to clean them, instead of pressure washers and other high-end cleaning equipment. This not only reduces the efforts, but also the costs involved with cleaning and maintaining the roofs. However, you must remember to use a soft cloth and only manufacturer-recommended cleaning agents in order to prevent scratches and other hassles. But even then, cleaning and maintaining corrugated sheets is much easier and economical.
Corrugated sheets, whether plain or colored, offer enough amount of transparency, meaning ample amount of sunlight entering the roof during the day. This means you require lesser number of lights used during the day, thus affecting the value of your electricity bills. Moreover, the sunlight that enters the roof is completely harmless as the UV protection layer blocks the harmful UV radiations from entering in. Therefore, you get maximum sunlight with zero harmful radiations! And, take note that you are not only reducing your electricity bills. Installing corrugated sheets also reduces the labour and transportation costs that you may have to encounter while installing other traditional transparent materials like glass. And, to add to that, the durability and ease of cleaning add to the cost-effectiveness too, as these sheets require lesser replacement and cleaning.
Corrugated sheets are available in a variety of colours, which helps in transforming the look of your building. Therefore, by using these sheets, you can have transparency yet colour for your roofs. Apart from the neutral and common tints, these sheets are available in vibrant colours too, thus offering a great designer outlook to your structure. Moreover, being highly resistant to even the harshest of weather conditions, these colours last longer than many other plastic roofing sheets.
