For a person far from construction, the very idea of making a roof from plastic sounds like an April Fool's joke. Moreover, not very successful. After all, the plastic that we encounter in everyday life is often fragile, easily breakable material. This means that the plastic roof must quickly collapse under the slightest load. Who needs such a short-lived roof?
Such views are far from reality. Modern plastic roofing materials are very different from ordinary household plastic in terms of properties. So much so that some of their types will give odds to the usual roofing coverings in terms of strength and bearing capacity. And this is not taking into account other advantages.
Plastic for roofing: pros and cons
Plastic roofing is actually not uncommon. For a half-hour walk around the city, you can see dozens of such roofs. It's just that you hardly paid attention to them, mistaking polymeric materials for glass.
These are canopies and awnings, covered overpasses, public transport stops, kiosks and other buildings with a transparent roof. Of course, some of the transparent inserts are actually glass. But there are fewer and fewer of them, since plastic for the roof largely outperforms glass.
Here are nine benefits of any type of plastic roofing:
In many performance characteristics, plastic roofing materials are at least comparable to such familiar coatings as: metal, corrugated board, slate, ondulin. And even surpass them in some properties.
If you need to make a transparent roof, then plastics simply have no alternative. Except, of course, glass: tempered or triplex. However, glass is many times more expensive, heavier and much more difficult to install.

In one-story houses with a flat roof at a large angle, it is interesting to beat the interior inside the premises. Part of the room, where ceilings are about 150 cm, can be used for arranging wardrobes, shelves. If the ceilings do not "crush", then here you can arrange a sleeping place.
Pay attention! The sloping roof of a one-story house will look favorably in a building not with a decrease in the height of one of the walls, but with a rise - thus, it will turn out to be with a second light.
