You can cut this product easily on the vertical with utility kitchen scissors, and on the horizontal or diagonal as well. It does not require power tools unless you are cutting multiple panels at once.

If you do need to cut the panels they are very easy to work with:
Corrugated panels may be cut with a circular saw (using a very fine-toothed blade for plastic panels, veneer, or plywood). For best results, it is often better to cut a few corrugated panels at a time to reduce vibration; clamping the panels also helps. Also, if using a standard circular saw blade, better results may be seen by running the blade backwards (turn it over to reverse direction). Panels may also be cut by hand by carefully using tin snips or a utility knife.

Short answer is YES! UVB light is longer wavelength 315-400 nm invisible UV light that causes burning of the skin. UVA is frequency 280-315 shorter wavelength that penetrates further into the skin causing damage to your DNA with cancer and aging changes (doesn't burn and can't even be seen so it's in the sunlight from sunup to sundown--also known as blacklight).

Short answer is YES! UVB light is longer wavelength 315-400 nm invisible UV light that causes burning of the skin. UVA is frequency 280-315 shorter wavelength that penetrates further into the skin causing damage to your DNA with cancer and aging changes (doesn't burn and can't even be seen so it's in the sunlight from sunup to sundown--also known as blacklight). So the advertised 99% blockage of UV light is very desirable for us humans. Chlorophyll absorbs mostly blue and some red visible light. The wavelength range of blue light is 450-475 nm. The wavelength range of red light is 620-750 nm. Read Less

Answer: 
You would need panels, closure strips and fasteners to start your project. You may or may not need flashings, such as ridge cap, wall connector, or side ridge, depending on the design of your project. The panels are 26" wide with a 24" net coverage and a 1 corrugation overlap.

Answer: 
The panels can be cleaned using warm water with a mild household detergent. Wipe off any remaining dirt with a soft cloth and wash again. Never use a solvent based cleaner (ammonia, etc.). Avoid using sponges or brushes that can scratch the panels surface.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Replaced 40-year-old fiberglass panels with these polycarbonate panels about eight years ago on a rental property. The fiberglass worked fine but it's almost opaque...I needed transparent panels because the cover is on the east; otherwise it's too gloomy in the winter. Installed with neoprene gasketed self-drilling screws. They still look new after eight years of intense mile-high-altitude sunshine, three feet snowfalls, and 1/2" hail. Perfection! IMHO the square corrugation profile is appropriate in an urban area. Much more acceptable than the old fashioned curved profile. September 21, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Only lasts about 10 years in Florida Installed a Suntuf roof over my back porch in 2005. Worked great and the opal white let in the perfect amount of sun to provide some shade and let in enough light to for plants to grow like crazy. At the end of 2015 the panels started cracking... not along the ridges, but perpendicular to the ribbing. The cracks were pretty big and in a number of places. The installation was text book so I knew it wasn't from improper construction. I called the company because I saw limited lifetime warranty on their literature. They said the warranty was only for discoloration and the person on the phone confirmed that the roof panels only last about 10 years. I live in Florida. No snow, but lots of heat and sun. Ordered the same panels because the roof is made specifically for them and I like the amount of light that shines through. Not looking forward to replacing them in ten years though! March 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed for my re-purposed greenhouse! After searching for the perfect roof for my re-purposed greenhouse that I made out of old windows, fence boards and tin I found these clear panels to be just what I needed. Being an older woman with limited carpentry skills I found the panels amazingly easy to work with. They were very easy to cut with tin snips and I was able to install them onto the roof by myself. They are very lightweight. If I hadn't gone and had to get stitches in my finger from using an old jigsaw (I should have purchased a new from Home Depot!) I would have had a finished product to show you. Oh well, I'll send more photos later :} December 31, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Made a durable greenhouse enclosure I bought 7 of these to construct a greenhouse enclosure for our tomatoes on the south side of our house in early October 2012. Other materials used were 2 x 2 redwood, Suntuf wood closure strips and Woodtite 2 inch fasteners. A box of exterior wood screws were also used in constructing the redwood frame. Utility hinges were also used so the panels could be opened up for access. This project turned out great and my gardening neighbors are envious! The panel material is easy to work with and very strong. In fact, I bent a piece that I had trimmed off in half and I couldn't break it. I made sure that all panels were well supported, so I put in supports every 24 inches. This made for a lightweight, very sturdy panel when completed. Use the closure strips every 24 inches as well - make sure you pick out ones with as few knots as possible, as they will break otherwise. I put the fasteners on every other ridge of the panel, so they were spaced about 6 inches apart. I may do a similar project for our raised garden beds in the spring. Oh, make sure your enclosure is easily taken down, as you'll need to during the warmer months, or your plants will cook. November 22, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nice but expensive These panels seem nice and strong and are very clear. Just wish they weren't so expensive October 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Survives Snow Loads I installed a number of the Suntuf clear panels in the summer of 2005 to cover my front and rear decks. Some people say they break easily, but mine have survived many feet of wet snow on them every winter. I think the secret to a good installation is to use fir strips every two feet and use the rubber washer on the metal roofing screws to hold them down. I live in serious snow country so over built everything under it to make sure it could handle the snow loads. August 2, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HORRIBLE. brittle, leaky... this stuff is dreadful in southeast texas weather. leaked from day one (and yes we used the correct materials and installed as suggested), became brittle within a year. am currently ripping it all out and replacing with ANYTHING else : ( March 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pruduct does not follow standards I bought a few of these so I could switch out some panels on my garage. A common thing to do to bring light into the building. Although the panels were made by standard width/length the biggest mistake was to make them 9 ribs instead of the standard 10. Wow?! Real nice product and a good price for polycarbonate yet has one major flaw...and why? October 1, 2013
