Why you should invest in a Polycarbonate Canopy

Why you Should Invest in a Polycarbonate Canopy




Looking for protection for your car or front door? Investing in a polycarbonate canopy can give you the peace of mind that you need.

Rather than choosing traditional roofing materials, such as slate – polycarbonate offers the following benefits.


  • Very high resistant and will withstand high impact, making it virtually unbreakable
  • Comes in a variety of style and sizes, making it more versatile than glass
  • Comes in a variety of finishes
  • Can last for up to 25 years
  • Contains UV filters
  • Extremely cost-effective in comparison to more traditional roof covers
  • Good structural performance
  • Easy to clean and does not look tired after a couple of years
  • Self-extinguishing, so fewer worries about fires
  • Weather resistant
  • Low heat transmission will keep you cool in summer but will offer shelter during winter


Having shelter from the elements is one of the main reasons that people choose a door canopy or a canopy attached to their house.

Whether you want an extra few hours enjoying the outdoors during summer or you want to protect your car over winter, investing in a polycarbonate canopy is a great way to enhance your exterior decoration.

Polycarbonate roofing is also a great option for businesses who use some of their outdoor space for work or who prepare or store goods outdoors.


Polycarbonate maintenance

It is true that polycarbonate can be expensive, but, as we have said, it will last for many years and should not need to be replaced on a regular basis.

As long as you clear your canopy of heavy debris that will land during poor weather you should not see any major problems. A simple clean from time to time, either by yourself or by a professional cleaner, should suffice.
