Building the Best Polycarbonate Porch Roof

Want a new porch roof that looks great and lasts long? Polycarbonate is a top choice. It comes in lots of colors and can be cut to fit your space.

How Big and What Shape?

Start by looking at your porch size. Your new roof should fit the porch well and look good with your whole house.

What Look Do You Want?

Think about the style you like. If you like modern styles, SUNGLAZE or EZ Glaze could be right. If you like more old-school looks, try SUNTUF DIY or SUNLITE DIY. There are many colors and designs to pick from.

Roof Styles
Slanted roofs are simple to put up. They blend well with most houses. For example, the EZ Glaze lean-to pergola is light and useful.

If your house has a pointy roof, a two-sided roof can match it. SUNPAL roofing can cover large areas easily.

If you like strong, neat looks, try a hipped roof. This is also good if you want to turn your porch into an extra room. An example is a café area with SUNGLAZE panels.

For a special touch, curved roofs look fancy. Mixing curved with regular roofs can give a cool effect, like the SUNLITE curved roof.

Do It Yourself or Get Help?
Putting up a porch roof has two steps: building the frame and adding the roof. If you've done similar work and feel good about it, you can do it yourself. The roofing sheets are easy to handle. Just make sure you follow the guide that comes with them. If you're unsure, it might be best to get an expert.

Letting Light In

A good porch has nice natural light. Think about where your porch is and how much sunlight it gets. If it gets too bright, some sheets can reduce the glare. For example, SUNTUF ZigZag sheets can replace old tiles and make things brighter.
