Acrylic Patio Covers for Your Roofing Needs

An Acrylic Roof is designed as a patio cover and a sunroom roof that will maintain high light transmission throughout the longevity of the product! Built Strong, it’s designed to offer protection from inclement weather and harmful UV rays, without blocking the natural light. Acrylic sheets are durable, 100% naturally UV stable and filter/soften harsh light. An Acrylic roof will retain 90% light transmission and clarity for about 30 years.

Acrylic vs Polycarbonate Patio Covers

Both acrylic and polycarbonate are incredibly strong, stronger than glass and about ½ the weight. They can both be completely clear and are easy to clean. When you first look at these products, it can be hard to tell the difference between them, but under the surface there are several properties that set them apart.

Properties of Acrylic

Acrylic is sometimes called Plexiglass, but Plexiglass is just one of many brands of acrylic. This particular material has several benefits, including:

  • More affordable than both glass and polycarbonate.
  • Resists yellowing from the sun
  • Better clarity than glass transmitting 92% of light
  • Easier to machine and form
  • Shiny material that can be polished to a smooth finish
  • Has an impact resistance that is 17x that of glass
  • Available in a range of colors

In addition, acrylic is a thermoplastic that is formed and bent using heat. It can have clean glue joints for an improved overall look because glue bonds well with it. If you are looking for an affordable alternative to glass that is significantly stronger, acrylic could be the right fit.

Acrylic does have some cons to consider when choosing a plastic material. When compared to polycarbonate, it is a more rigid material. It also is more prone to cracking when drilled and chips more easily.

Properties of Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate plastics have many similar properties to acrylic. Some of the key differences include:

  • Higher cost, as much as 25% more expensive (depending on the grade)
  • Significantly stronger, with 250x the impact resistance of glass and 30x the strength of acrylic
  • Transmits 88% of light
  • Working temperature of 240 degrees, giving it a low level of flammability
  • Resists chips and cracking
  • Corrosion resistant when used in chemical applications
  • Will not crack even when the sheets are drilled in to
  • Can be formed without heating

If you are in need of bullet resistant materials or materials to use in a highly caustic environment, such as in a plant that works with acidic or other potent chemicals, then polycarbonate is probably the right fit.

Like acrylic, polycarbonate has some cons to consider. It is typically not a shiny material, but it can be polished. Although it resists cracking and chipping, it dents and scratches easily. It has good clarity, but it is not UV resistant and unless coated it will yellow over time.

We've partnered up with Star Construction WA a while ago and we had a few jobs where a louvered roof pergola was needed. This guys did a great job and we are definitely looking forward to working with them again.

Nice job by the Star Construction team. Very modern look for the louvered pergola, goes really well with our new house. Ruslan is very professional and responsive, and we will happily recommend him.

Ruslan was professional, reliable, communicative, and efficient. He is meticulous with his craft and does so in exceptional time. They installed a motorized awning for my back deck area. I could not be more pleased with the result. They took care to clean the project space after and explain the device. You are in good hands with a company of such quality and care.

I saw their ad about Louvered Roof in one of our Seattle local magazines and I decided to look them up. I didn't know much about this type of pergolas but the team was so friendly and they provided me with a lot of useful information. They offered me a free estimate and the sales guy was so nice. They did an amazing job. Thank you guys for your hard work!

I asked for louvered roofing to be done, and they were on-time, very professional and did a really clean job. There aren't many companies like this, so I'm glad that I found this one. The images attached say it all! I highly recommend them.
