How Long Do Polycarbonate Roof Panels Last In Sun?

How Long Do Polycarbonate Roof Panels Last In Sun?

Danpal knows that in order for a building to be able to withstand the elements, its roofing needs to be stronger than the weather. It’s natural, when thinking of harsh weather, to immediately picture the winds, the snow, the rain and storms and the hail, as a roof’s main enemy. But what about the sun? There’s a lot of heat coming out of the sky, as, day after day in the hot weather months, the sun’s rays beat down upon the roof. Danpal’s engineers and designers have shown how effective polycarbonate roof panels can be in the contest between roofs and weather. But consumers are curious: is polycarbonate really the best choice for roofing material, and just how long do polycarbonate roof panels last in sun?

Polycarbonate Roof Panels And Extreme Hot And Cold Weather

The length of time that polycarbonate roof panels will last depends upon the maintenance that the roof is given, and the kind of weather that it’s exposed to. If a roof is well maintained, it can last between 10 to 20 years before it’s going to need to be replaced. There are even instances where the polycarbonate roof panels have lasted 30 years. Polycarbonate has the capability to resist extreme temperatures, both cold and hot. That feature makes polycarbonate roof panels particularly effective in climate zones all over the world.

If the building is located in a cold weather climate, where winters are harsh, the roofing panels may need replacing on a more frequent basis. Polycarbonate roofs often come with an extended warranty from the manufacturer, which attests to the durability of this popular building material.

Why Polycarbonate Roof Panels Are The Best Choice

Polycarbonate probably isn’t the first material that comes to mind if you’re in the market for a new roof. If you live in a region where hot weather is punishing, you should definitely consider the merits of polycarbonate. But in today’s climate-conscious world, where ecological responsibility is a priority for consumers, isn’t it time to consider choosing a roofing material that reflects your environmental priorities? Just because slate, asphalt, cement and wood are the more traditional roofing materials doesn’t mean that they’re the best choices for today’s architecture. In fact, as we do our best to help reduce our carbon footprint and keep our planet healthy, we’ve discovered that building materials can also play a vital role in this environmental rescue mission.

Polycarbonate is light in weight, so it’s easy to work with. It’s flexible. It’s cost-effective. It’s also uniquely designed to withstand weather. You’ve seen polycarbonate in conservatories and greenhouses but you might not have realized why it’s used so often in those structures? Polycarbonate, a thermoplastic, was originally used in these buildings because plants need to be able to thrive in a temperature-controlled atmosphere. It didn’t take long before architects realized that polycarbonate roofing panels that enable plants to thrive are also good for people.

Polycarbonate Roof Panels Are The Smart Money Choice

Unlike glass, polycarbonate is easy to customize. It can be shaped and re-sized onsite, which is a tremendous asset for construction crews. It doesn’t just come in various sizes, but it’s also available in different colors, which adds to its visual appeal. Get the roof you need in order to be comfortable no matter what part of the world you live in. Sunny summers, freezing winters, and everything between, that’s the polycarbonate roof panel option.

Weather is weather and sun is sun, no matter if a building is commercial and residential. Isn’t it good to know that with polycarbonate roof panels, you can work and live in a structure that’s fortified by Danpal innovation?
