Basement Waterproofing
I was pleased with the quality of work and the professionalism. It was easy to transact with Steve Briesemeister. He was courteous and knowledgeable. His diagnosis of our water leak was on the money. His estimate was prompt, accompanied by photographs. They started and finished the work as promised, on time. Steve was in contact with me when they encountered other issues and we were able to resolve it with e-mailed pictures and cellphone.

Benefits of Corrugated Plastic Roofing

January 14, 2012 by - 2 Comments

Did you like this?

corrugated plastic roofingCorrugated Plastic Roofing has its pros and cons. Your choices are either plastic or metal. There are basic qualities for each that make them better for your project. Primarily, if you live in a region that gets extreme heat, your roofer will probably not recommend the plastic because it does not handle heat well which could mean an early roof replacement job. Other than that, plastic has a number of benefits compared to metal corrugated roofing.

Plastic is more durable in that it is not as flimsy as metal. Its greater weight and less flexibility provide a higher level of protection in extreme weather conditions with high winds. The fact that it is less likely to flap in the breeze is a good thing because the plastic corrugated sheets are more likely to chip. Should a corner get dinged when being handed up to install, you run the risk of ruining the entire sheet because it a small chip can turn into a large crack the whole length of the board.

The weight of the plastic board makes it a bit more difficult to handle if you are trying to install it your self. However, the greater security and aesthetic value of the plastic tends to outweigh that challenge. The plastic allows light through so that if being used for a corner shed, porch or other structure without windows, the natural light enhances. More attractive than metal, to change the color, you can use special paint for corrugated plastic roofing.

Corrugated plastic panels are great if you have no trees around to accidentally puncture the panel. These are best on patios and decks.

Steve did an excellent job repairing our missing roof shingles. He came out first thing in the morning, emailed us with pictures and our quote, and was finished with the work by 3 PM. Great job!
