♦ The whole range offers 99.9% protection from the suns damaging rays.  Once installed to your outdoor living area, carport roof or similar project, we are sure that you will be as excited as we are with this fantastic product. 
 
♦ On a cloudy and sunny day, Polycarbonate roofing experiences a process called “expansion and contraction”.  This can give that “cracking” and “creaking” sound, which is caused when the roofing panels rub against the timber batten the panels are fixed to.  To reduce and avoid this noise, we recommend the use of “self cutting” screws. These roofing screws incorporate a “cutting head” on the shaft which cuts an oversized hole in the sheet, allowing room to expand, thus hugely reducing that annoying “cracking” sound.
 
♦ Another great product to reduce the noise is the aptly named “Anti Noise Tape”.  This product is rolled out across the top of the battens before the sheets are screwed down. This tape is extremely easy to install - one side is sticky.  Simply roll and push!

A Few Helpful Tips When You Are Installing Polycarbonate Roofing

If you are planning to install polycarbonate roofing by yourself (with additional help from your friends or loved ones), here are a few important things to remember to ensure that you perform this task correctly and avoid mistakes that can undermine the performance of your new roof.

First, you need to make sure that you install the roofing sheets with the right side up. Otherwise, you risk shortening the lifespan of your new roof because the incorrect side has not been treated against UV rays. Mark the appropriate side before proceeding with the actual installation.

At the very least, the roof pitch should be at least five degrees or 87mm per 1,000mm. This will ensure that water runs off correctly and leakage is prevented. If your home requires a flatter pitch, you can contact our helpful staff here at Metal Roofing Online for advice on how best to proceed with the installation.

Check the manufacturer's instructions on how to fasten screws on your polycarbonate roofs. Some manufacturers recommend fastening screws for every corrugation while other manufacturers recommend fastening screws every second or third corrugation. Remember to fasten the screws through the rib's crest and avoid over tightening the screws. Otherwise, you risk damaging the roofing sheets. Also, make sure that you use the screws recommended by the manufacturer.

Make sure that you handle the roofing sheets with great care and avoid scratches before installation. These sheets are best placed on a flat area, preferably away from direct sunlight. Do not stack the sheets as heat can distort these. Moisture, on the other hand, can cause whitening while chemicals like paints and solvents can damage the roofing sheets.

Polycarbonate sheets may expand and contract depending on the prevailing temperature. This is why it is highly recommended that you leave some allowance when you are drilling the holes for the screws. This ensures that the sheets can move freely while these are expanding or contracting. The recommended allowance is 10mm for roofing sheets measuring up to 4.2m or 12mm for roofing sheets measuring over 4.2m.

For areas that are going to be exposed to high winds, it is ideal for the spacing of the purlin or batten to be reduced to 750mm maximum end spans. The overhang at eaves should be no more than 100mm or less in high wind locations. The end lap at battens or purlins should be no more than 200mm. You can minimise the noise caused by friction due to the contraction or expansion of the sheets by using a self-adhesive anti-noise tape.
