How do I cut the panels

Use a high speed oscillating multi tool with a fine tooth blade. Tin snips or heavy duty scissors work O.K. Look on You Tube for more ideas.

How much is the min/max to overlap the panels? is 12" overlapping too much?

Asked by blasky July 6, 2018

Answers

Use the recommended 1 corrugation overlap and pay attention to adhering to the minimum pitch. Too little of a pitch will slow down the shedding of water and allow it (the water) to wick into the overlapped seams.

For a 16ft wide x 12ft long roof is it necessary to use vertical closure strips all the way or should they only be

#1, you are probably talking about a butyl tape sealant, which comes in a roll of 40 feet. It's cheap, and it's what Pros use to seal the edges of panels. It's not in every Home Depot store for sure, but it's super common to use this stuff. It is necessary to use this on any roof that is lower than 3:12. You might need it more so in heavy snow areas and where the underneath is unheated. Look for this at Home Depot: 1/4 in. x 40 ft. Butyl Rubber Sealant Tape Model # 40BT Internet #207149821 Store SKU #457389 (Or its equivalent) Use that butyl tape on long panel overlaps on low pitch roofs. Clear or metal. You then put in "lap" or "stitch" screws to hold the two adjacent panels together, mashing the butyl tape together, about every 20 to 24 inches. You should not use the regular Tek or metal roofing screws that are woodgrip and long. Stitch screws are 3/4 or 7/8 inch long. The end closures are a completely different component. They seal the structure to keep something mostly air tight and keep blowing rain out; they do not seal the roof from rain showers and gravity flowing water. Those closures are for sealing the building, and are sometimes left out, especially at the lower end (eave). The upper ones at the roof peak are more important for rain storms.

Hello Decked, glad to help answer your question. Personally I would have a 3 inch drop on slope over the entire length. Good luck with your project.

I believe this would work very well as long as you seal it properly. Use of a waterproof sealant around all the edges would keep out the water and moisture .

I want to use these to cover my pergola. Will it make it warmer than the ambient temperature under if I use the clear?

Asked by Kevin July 8, 2020

Answers

It depends on how much air flows through it. I built a 12 x 12 greenhouse with the stuff about 8 years ago. In the summer, I remove the front suntuff panels and open the back doors to get air flow through. Even on cloudy days, here near Seattle, you notice how much warmer the greenhouse is. If you're in a sunny warm climate you might considered colored panels or use shade cloth. One other note is my clear panels did dull after several years. A friend said I should power wash them every year, but I'm sure that would lead to other problems. I will say they're tough as mine have easily handled several significant snow loads and all our hail storms. Follow the installation instructions and you shouldn't have any problems.

Hello Stell, glad to help answer your question. After a few months it is still clear but dusty. Washing off with warm soapy water & rinse helps. After 3 years or so it seems clear enough but a little bit less clear than new. Hope this helps.

Easy to install
An employee helped us by showing a project he did, and we were sold, as we were deciding between plastic and metal, the metal ones are 5 week wait, three ended up working out better because they allow light with the same shade as if they were solid so was a nice choice and easy to install

The Suntuf panel system was perfect for putting a roof on my wife's pergola that's used for plant potting and storage. The panels were easy to handle and cut and they also bend. The roof contour was raised in the center and then sloped to each end by 3" in about 5'. That's sufficient to handle any rain and to stop leaves and other debris from building up. The roof project was a total success.

Fantastic!!!! I had actually purchased and installed panels from a competitor. After less than a week the panels were discolored and so badly warped I was forced to remove them and replaced them with the Suntuf brand. My regret is that I didn’t start with Suntuf from the onset of project. The polycarbonate is flexible, but strong and corrugation is easy to work with. Extremely pleased with quality of materials, pricing and ease of use.

This is a VERY labor intensive product as each screw has to be predrilled and my project was 24x16 lean to car port, and we used 500 screws just for the roof panels! Another 300 to put up the plastic supports under it. Use one drill that has a clutch for the screws as they have to be set just right and another drill for pre drilling the hole. You need to use special rubber washer screws for the install (available at HD). I needed a wall connector that is available only thru the HD website, it is made with a 3/8in masonry lip (for brick work) at the top, that as far as I can tell, needs to be cut off so the unit can sit flush against the wall. The instructions and video on line really don't show the closeup of this connection nor how to do it. My friend who is a contractor ended up cutting off this lip, screwing it in first (pre drilling) then putting sticky backed pre flashing on the wall and the connector, then attached a J channel on top of it for the vinyl siding then attached the plastic wall connector flashing and lastly slid the roof panel under the wall connector. Trying to do the wall connector flashing after the whole roof was done seemed dangerous, as working on a sheet of plywood on a 4-12 pitch roof would just slide off the roof. My friend worked from the ground on a ladder thru the roof joists and 2x4 cross members, it was VERY tight and only skinny folks will fit! LOL! I did most of my roof in white and used 2 clear 12 foot panels like skylights. Looking back now I would not have bothered with the clear as the white is quite translucent and lets in a lot of light. The white stays quite cool under the blazing sun. Make sure you install the panels with the label up as there is a UV protective coating on only the label side and it only works when facing up to the sun.

Just installed the strips, blocks the sun fairly well and seems to be very durable. Waiting for first winds and rain to see how well the clear sheets handle the weather..Easy to install, used cross boards on top of sheets to walk on top while installing and roofing was not damaged .

I love this product, it is very well built, not too heavy, I could manage the roofing process all by myself. The only complaint I have, and I am not sure if it is HD faults...the long label on the side gets off as a charm, very easy. But then, they have a small paper label with the code...again, maybe HD puts that on, well...the time I WASTED to peel those labels off, is more than acceptable. Sometimes I was standing on the roof when I realized I had to take off that label, and it was not comfortable at all. Better use an "easy peel off" material! Or place the paper label on top of the long plastic label that gets off so easy.
