Did your exterior renovation contractor or designer propose using Polycarbonate as the roof material for your trellis or pergola? Here’s what you need to know about this material, Polycarbonate before installing it in your home.
Pros of Polycarbonate
We’ve used Polycarbonate to construct trellises for our customers for quite some years now, and here are its advantages.
Cons of Polycarbonate
There is but one characteristic of Polycarbonate that we think can be improved.
Polycarbonate is not entirely scratch resistant. So if you’re thinking of using it where there’ll be lots of contact, you may find scratches appearing soon. However, when used as a trellis or pergola roof, the chances of it getting scratched are pretty low. So you can use it with peace of mind.
A trellis is functional, and can be used to theme your outdoor area for different occasions like Mooncake Festival (中秋节), Chinese New Year and Christmas. I’ll share some décor tips for trellises or pergolas in a next post soon. Stay tuned!
