WAS THINKING THE PANELS WOULD BE BRITTLE AND CRACK BUT, THEY ARE VERY FLEXIBLE AND EASY TO CUT. I CUT THEM WITH A PAIR OF KITCHEN SIZZORS. EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE GREENHOUSE CAME FROM HOME DEPOT. ROOFING WAS GREAT QUALITY AND I BELIEVE WILL LAST A LONG TIME. MY WIFE LOVES THE GREENHOUSE..

We live on the Northwest Pacific Coast of Cali, lots of rain and storms in the winter. I just watched how our installation of Suntuf fared during the first huge rainstorm, no leaks! We built a sunroom/breezeway/conservatory to go between the back of the house and the new 10x20 Tuff Shed, and it's enclosed. No sweating, and the sunlight, warmth and dryness are so very welcome! The installation was painstaking....pre-drilling each screw hole, and since we are inundated with salt mist from the ocean, I covered each screw with silicone. The Suntuf site has a list of recommended sealants that are chemically compatible with their product, none that I saw for sale at HD, but I opted for pure silicone and it seems to do the job. Building your structure with enough of a "pitch" is notable, to allow for wind sheer, drainage, and probably to shed things like the pine needles that are falling here from a nearby tree. During the fall of big raindrops; not so much noise at all, we were pleasantly surprised. So far our conservatory is 10+ degrees and more warmer than the outside temps, and the house is warmer overall with this passive heating arrangement built on its back wall.
We have detailed the structure with lengths of a fallen old growth Redwood and some Manzanita and I'm making stained glass windows to go over the door...I'm pretty happy with this! We shall see about longevity. Light, LIGHT, light!!!!
(It's a little pricey btw.)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MaineErik So far so good
It's only been a month since installing - time will tell whether this product (and the rest of the Suntuf system) is up to the task of dealing with Maine's climate. Installation was a breeze. This is over our front porch, SE exposure. Installed vinyl 1x5 boards on top of the Suntuf and under the drip line of house roof as noise of dripping water was otherwise loud and annoying. So far 5 stars.

Had a roof with Palruf installed for my porch, and I built a roof over part of our garden with suntuf to let the light through. We had a pretty bad hailstorm, and the Palruf came out full of holes, but not a single hole in the Suntuf. Only been about 2 years, so I can't guess how it will hold up over time.
Would be nice if the manufacturer would provide a comparison between the two products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zazamps Excellent Product
We had installed the product over the deck 12X16 feet deck. The only one problem is that our deck was 8 feet above ground level and so when it rained, the deck get wet, but definitely protects from sun, you can even see the sky.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveK GreenHouse roof
Was going to purchase the PVC panels and save some $ but with the life time warranty and specs on the polycarbonate panels... you get what you pay for.
Had to cut the 7 panels to fit my green house roof. Circular saw may have not been the best way to go, even with a fine tooth blade and very slow travel it still sounded like I was destroying the panels, which were all being cut at the same time. But they turned out fine.
One down side was the factory edge, it was a joke (NOT SQUARE).
All in all I was impress and glad I paid the extra (all most double) for the polycarbonate, very tough and very clear, just what the doctor ordered for a greenhouse.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Festerized Home Depot does not sell all components for proper installation
Home Depot sells the horizontal strips but does not sell the vertical closure strip which is required for proper installation according to manufacture, why sell a product if you don’t carry all of its components?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TimG Problems with weeping
These work fine keeping the rain out, no problems in that regard BUT.............
During nights of heavy dew, moisture weeps through the panels considerably (I wish I could underline the word considerably). My beautiful natural oil finished arbor is streaked in dozens of places where the moisture has wicked through & I have to cover anything important on my deck. I used (14) 12 foot clear panels so I could keep an open and airy feel on the deck (expensive); maybe the opaque colors might have been different.
This is very disappointing, I wouldn't recommend this product at all.
