Corrugated PVC / Plastic Roofing

Postby groucho » Sat Nov 29, 2014 4:17 pm

I am looking for a translucent corrugated PVC / Plastic Roofing material for my car port. I have attached a couple of photos of the galvanized structure .. I do not want to use sheet metal as I want as much sunlight as I can get into my 1st floor area. I am looking for a medium "light transmission" product that is durable for a maximum number of years before replacing, and would suspect that the "heat transmission" also to be in the 60% range.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

I think you are looking for polycarbonate sheet hollow or corrugated.
i found a website from a Thai company making such sheets please look at:http://thaifuhong.com/?page_id=11

Will check out Thai Watsadu this week end. I recall seeing some in the back warehouse a while ago, and was not impressed. I may have to allow more space between to top of my walls and the roof for sunlight, and go with a sheet metal roof.
