What are Polycarbonate Roofing Sheets?  

A polycarbonate sheet is a transparent panel comprising a plastic material that, though lightweight, remains durable and shatterproof - making it an appealing alternative to glass.  

It's possible to use polycarbonate roofing on a wide range of domestic and commercial building projects.  

Polycarbonate Roof Panel Thickness Chart

Our polycarbonate roofing sheets are available in various thicknesses, from 4mm to 35mm. The width you will need depends on where you intend to use the product.  

Here is a look at how polycarbonate sheet thicknesses differ and the purposes for which they can be especially effective for: 

  • 4mm polycarbonate sheet: This highly flexible thickness is ideal for skylights as well as entire glass roofs such as those on greenhouses.
  • 10mm polycarbonate sheet: This lends itself well to use in small home projects e.g. pergolas, patios and carports, along with compact non-heated conservatories.  
  • 16mm polycarbonate sheet:  Often deemed the 'standard' thickness of polycarbonate roofing, it can be reserved for many of the same purposes as the 10mm option.  
  • 25mm polycarbonate sheet: If you are building a conservatory, this particular thickness is reassuringly strong, making it a great candidate for use as a roofing material in this context. 
  • 32mm polycarbonate sheet:  Keeping a conservatory comfortably warm can be challenging, but this sheeting offers excellent insulation.  
  • 35mm polycarbonate sheet:  Not only is this the thickest polycarbonate sheet thickness we stock, but it is also the best for residential insulation purposes.  

We offer polycarbonate roof panels in the following configurations: Twinwall, Triplewall, Multiwall, Fivewall and X Structure. Varico delivers nationwide.

How to Choose Polycarbonate Sheets

When choosing your polycarbonate roofing system, you need to consider three things: thickness, application and colour. 


What would be the 'right' thickness of polycarbonate roofing panel for your needs?  You could find it very helpful to refer to the chart we provide above.


Generally, the bigger the space, the thicker your polycarbonate sheet should be. But you also need to consider how you’re planning to use the room.

If you’re going to spend lots of time in that space, you might want to provide heating for it. For heated spaces, you’ll need thicker polycarbonate sheets to prevent the heat from seeping out of the room.


What colour of polycarbonate sheet should you opt for?  To help yourself decide consider how much light you would like to see shining through the roof.  

Clear sheets are best if you want maximum sunlight, but if you are more eager to reduce the roof's heat absorption, choose grey or bronze panels.  

It's also worth factoring in how polycarbonate sheet colours could complement the area where the material will be installed.  

Commercial clients could ask us to deliver them some plastic roof panels in clear but subtle hues aligning with the organisation's branding colours.  

It's also possible to order polycarbonate clear roofing sheets in a multitude of colours, enabling you to achieve something of a rainbow effect with the panels you put together.  

This can be especially the case when light streams through the panels and creates a kaleidoscope of patterns on the floor or ground.

Advantages of Polycarbonate Roofing Sheets

  • Lightweight:  This makes our polycarbonate sheet easy to transport.  You can save time and money, as you don't have to arrange for any tradespeople to carry the items on your behalf.  
  • Perfect for DIY projects:  With a compatible glazing bar, simply affix the sheets to each other before securing them to the frame.  You don't even need any specialist equipment; a few timber screws and a drill will suffice.  
  • Long lifespan:  These polycarbonate roofing products are very durable and have high resistance to the elements, e.g. rain and snow.  Polycarbonate is also resistant to some chemicals, making it easy to clean without discolouring it.   
  • Ideal for outdoor use:  This is due to the polycarbonate's physical resilience and protection against UV rays.  So you can use these sheets in spaces exposed to the sun, such as awnings, greenhouses and patios.  
  • Affordability:  This makes polycarbonate roofing sheets great alternatives to traditional roofing.  They're also cheaper then fiberglass, which is one of the most popular roofing options for home additions.  

A sheet designed for every application

Because we understand the differing needs and requirements of our clients, we offer our polycarbonate sheets in a wide variety of colours and thicknesses. If you’re looking for a cost-effective alternative to glass panels, consider our 4 mm sheet, which is ideal for use within greenhouse installations. Providing the strength, durability and appearance of glass, the material is much cheaper and negates the chances of cracks and breakages.

For carports, pergolas and small lean-to conservatory roofs, try out our 10 mm and 16 mm polycarbonate sheets, which offer added strength and durability over glass without the cost and fragility. The benefits of polycarbonate roofing extend to its ease of maintenance, ability to withstand force from elements such as wind and rain, and their ability to block harmful UV rays, reducing temperatures and UV exposure in properties.

A durable and reliable roofing solution

As polycarbonate sheets are resistant to heat, snow, rain and sunlight, they can withstand the elements and provide long-lasting protection whether used as a conservatory roof or a greenhouse. Their unique ability to last for years without fading and discolouring is also a benefit to property owners looking for a cost-effective, reliable material for their homes.

Frequently Asked Questions

It depends on the thickness and configuration of the polycarbonate roofing sheet and how many you’ll need. For an average-sized lean-to conservatory, a polycarbonate roof can range from £200 to £2,500.

The average lifespan of polycarbonate roofs are 10 to 15 years. But thicker, multiwall polycarbonate roofing sheets tend to last longer because of their structure and insulating power.

You can mix mild detergent and warm water to rinse your roof. Don’t use abrasive cleaning tools to prevent scratching the coating of the panels. If you’re unsure, you can contact your polycarbonate sheet supplier and ask them how best to clean your roof.
