How to Repair Minor Faults in Polycarbonate Roofing?

Polycarbonate is a tough thermoplastic resin, usually produced from bisphenol A and phosgene. A production method that does not use phosgene has also been developed, and it has been industrialized in the early 1960s and large-scale industrialized production has been achieved in the late 1990s. It is now the second-largest engineering plastic whose output is second only to polyamide. Its name comes from the CO3 group inside.      


Polycarbonate roofing sheet is a new type of sun board, and its excellent performance makes it the first choice for roofing materials for sun rooms. The advantages of polycarbonate roof panels are mainly good light transmission, impact resistance, UV protection, light weight, flame retardant, bendable, good sound insulation, energy saving and so on.


The impact strength of forming polycarbonate sheets is 250-300 times that of ordinary glass, 30 times that of acrylic sheets of the same thickness, and 2-20 times that of tempered glass. Even if it receives a violent impact including stones, awls or hail, the polycarbonate roof panel will not break. Although the polycarbonate roof panel is very strong and durable, it cannot completely avoid the accident of breakage. It is very rare that polycarbonate transparent roofing sheet may be damaged sometimes. Once this happens, we must repair it in time to avoid the risk of the storm further damaging the roof.


Common glitches including leaks, fan failures, mists and breaks can be easily repaired. The polycarbonate roof is easy to maintain and repair.


Why do polycarbonate compact sheets seep into the water? The most common reason is that the storm is too strong. In addition, there are two reasons, namely leaking flashing or perished seals. If your roof is trapped by rain and if it is not properly sealed, a leak may occur. Even if you seal the polycarbonate roof before the leak, the seal will wear out over time. In such cases, you can re-seal the gap under the lamp to easily solve this problem.


Another cause of leakage may be a damaged seal. Even if your structure appears to be structurally intact, the seal may disappear and may be the cause of infiltration. In this regard, you may wish to reseal the gasket and check the remaining gasket to avoid the next leak. Taking this approach will save you the cost of replacing the roof. Professionals will answer your questions for you in this type of work.


This general solution is also applicable to twin-wall polycarbonate sheets, multiwall polycarbonate roofing sheets and polycarbonate corrugated roof panels, etc.


The following are other typical polycarbonate roof sheet problems and  solutions.


1. The panel slides down, leaving a gap where water and debris can enter


For this, you need to remove the panel to reposition the top gasket, and then replace the panel to fix it permanently.


2. The panel slides out from the glass strip, leaving a gap


For this, you need to remove the panel and install a new panel of the correct size.


3. Leaking windows under the drain


In this regard, you have to check whether the drain is blocked, then clean it, and install a new liner to increase the drainage.
