Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JohnH Horrible product, really deserves ZERO Star rating.
Last year I purchased a lot of these panels to finish the roof and sides of a 25' x 18' greenhouse. They are very susceptable to temperature variations and fracture easily due to temperature changes. Heat makes them sag and warp then the cold causes them to break. I thought I may be able to repair them but am now rebuilding the entire greenhouse roof & siding because they were completely destroyed during a thunderstorm.
Buying these panels is a complete waste of time & money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dedave123 Not Polycarbonate - Do not buy
I agree with most of the other reviews on the low quality of these panels. They were in the sun while I was installing them and they got cloudy and lost their wavy structure. The edges curled up. One missed hammer and they break. Like others, now I have to replace the entire roof one more time. The purchase was my mistake. I did not even notice that these are not Polycarbonate that I have had on my house for 25 years with no issues. These are made of PVC and completely wrong for the application. Shame on manufacturer and Home Depot for selling this garbage. I don't care about the cost. The work that is involved in removing these and reinstalling new panels is what hurts the most.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Stay away from these panels
Purchased 2 weeks ago to replace a roof on a shed. The shed is below some walnut trees. The black walnuts drop on to these sheets and take chips out of them. May work in a field but if walnuts chip large holes into them, they are worthless as a roofing material.

Spend the extra money so you don't have to do what I now have to do. Replace the panels with poly carbonate. The price is $13ish for pvc and $20ish for polycarbonate. I guess I thought it only need to stay in place but something hit it one of the panels and a big chunk came out. Under this hot houston sun, the pvc is very brittle and merely pressing up with my fingers will crack it. Considering the work I did to install it, it would have been smart to put panel that last much longer.

My wife and I had it installed on our green house because the manufacturer claims it to be tough and weather resistant, we had it on for just two weeks and the very first hail storm(it was 1/2 inch size hail) broke through 20 of the 24 panels installed. Never spend your money on this product. Also note that the vendor didn't even try to help us to resolve the issue. The manufacturer would never return emails or phone calls.

Dropped one piece off my 10 foot high pergola and it shattered on grass. I did not listen to further reviews and purchased because it was cheep, turned out to be a waste of money! After a week in the sun it became very very brittle (NC winter sun). A frisbee landed on it and it cracked the roof, tried to get it off with a stick and a ladder resulted in, 1) writing this review, 2) getting the polycarbonate stuff. I'm not sure what you would use this stuff for, Home Depot needs to discontinue this product. In the store it seems very durable and flexible, do not buy this product! This was a $200 donation to Home Depot....can I say it again, do not buy this product!

These panels replaced fiberglass panels that had lasted about 20 years and were just starting to leak. However, these have lasted barely 3 years and are leaking far worse than the panels they replaced.
Here are some of the issues:
- when new they are brittle and hard to cut, handle without fracturing
- after being in the sun have brown/black streaks and become very brittle at cold temperatures
- soft in heat so that they dent permanently when say a cat jumps on it, the dents later potentially crack when temperatures drop to freezing
- edges and seams curl up leading to leaks
They are really not worth using on anything except very small projects where they are not on an enclosed structure that will get hot in the sun and you don't care about them breaking - considering their price, I really can't think of any use that I would recommend for them...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OkieOregonian Fine for what it is
I have used this product as a rain cover for my chicken run that still allows for sunlight during the winter. The 8 foot panels fit my run width perfectly and for the past several months they have done the job well. I have had hickory nuts and small limbs fall on these panels with no breakage so far. They are fairly flimsy feeling but in the right application where properly supported, they should serve you well. My coop location is protected by several large trees so wind is not an issue. Falling limbs and nuts are, however, and so far so good. During the winter the sun is welcome on cold days and the clear panels allow for lots of sunshine for my hens. During inclement weather they have provided for rain and snow protection. I would not want to put these where I would need to climb on them, but for what they are, they work well.
