Cracks and chips when cutting
I purchased 7 sheets yesterday for the roof of our greenhouse. I went to the Palruf website for recommendations for cutting, I tried all 3 methods listed on the site, and all 3 methods left me with cracks and chips along the entire edge. Absolute crap.

    Corrugated clear panels
    This is a great product. It shed the snow off a low slope roof. Highly recommend. Durable and strong.

    Works great!
    Worked great for me. I used it as a cover for my Aquarium, very easy to cut and modify. Very inexpensive, Can be used for many projects.

    You're paying to add waste to the landfill
    So impossibly brittle. This is just plastic waste you are paying for both in time and money. I purchased 3 to test out, so glad I did. Low quality waste masked as new material should be outlawed.

      Lasted 2 years
      Installed these on my patio (partial shade) about 2 years ago and about 18 months later they started burn out, crack and warp. Had to replace them 2 years after they been installed - complete waste of time and money

        The product was easy to install on the top of our Pergola and does a great job blocking the elements on a wet day. The corrugated material allow for the water to drain off the roofing, and we are well-pleased with it, along with the Suntuf plastic closure strips. Very user friendly.

        Burns and cracks where attached to the underlying wood
        My fiber glass roofing finally gave out after 35 years or more. I had 5 panels to let sunlight into a horse barn. Bought this junk just two years ago and one piece came off in pieces this past weekend. The others are badly burnt where they attach to under lying wood. They are also cracking and will come off on the next windy day. See pictures of this junk. Do not buy. In addition, my corrugated roof measures approximately 2 5/8” from ridge to ridge or valley to valley. The corrugation height it is about ½” from bottom of the valley to the top of the ridge. This stuff does not fit. It measure 3” from ridge to ridge. So it was very hard to fasten down to my 40 year old corrugated steel.

          Do Not Buy this junk
          I am a licensed general contractor and cant believe anybody would give this more than 1 star. My use for these panels was as a temporary barrier between wood and some excavated dirt so I wasnt too concerned about their condition, BUT, i left a stack of 5 pieces in the yard for one day, mild weather, in the low 70’s. The next day the stack had warped and twisted and even melted together and cracked when trying to seperate them. These junk panels crack far too easily and cannot take a fastener unless you pre-drill a hole. Its unbelievable that these are manufactured and sold as a roofing panel because they couldnt last one full day of mild weather. If you are unfortunate enough to be using this product as intended do not cut them with a circular saw or with a masonary blade, as someone else had suggested. Easiest way is with a pair of tin-snips / sheet metal sheers. Best to avoid this junk. Shame on you Home Depot

            Just what I needed for a small project.
            A lot of reviews say they're cheap (they are) and break easily, but I didn't encounter that while working with them. Wanted an inexpensive solution to cover a bunny hutch, to keep them out of the rain. Found them fairly pliable, cut it to size with some tin snips fairly easily, and used a small pilot drill before attaching the sections with small sheet metal screws. I can't say yet for the durability, but if a large branch breaks off and shatters them, at least it will be cheap to replace it. Wouldn't use it on my house, but good fit for small projects.

              I purchased these panels to cover most of my chicken's run. (Yes, they are spoiled chickens.) They were easy and quick to install. I had some trouble cutting them with a tin snips. They cracked and chipped as they are pretty brittle when cold. I had much better luck cutting them with a saber-saw and abrasive blade. I pre-drilled each hole before screwing them down to prevent cracking. I added a dab of RTV to each screw to make sure they didn't leak. Be careful when laying them out to keep the edges even. It is easy to get them screwed down too tight and it adds a tiny bit to the width. The errors accumulate as you work your way across the roof. Chickens are warm and dry now.

              I broke it before I got home. But it was still usable. Worked great and lets a lot of light in.

              This review is based on ease of installation, etc., not on longevity. We've only just installed them as vertical walls on a greenhouse. They are easy to install, have great clarity. Be careful while cutting, as they are easy to crack. I can't say how well they will last, or if they will cloud up after a few months/years in the sun.

                This material was very lightweight. It is very strong and can flex well until it is cut. I used a tin snip shear to cut the material and it formed cracks along the edge as it was cut. I like the absolute clear, it is very similar to window glass. I was not impressed with how easily it cracks when cut. The final result is very beautiful on my greenhouse/shed.

                DO NOT BUY It seemed like a good product when screwing the panels down. the screw didn't crack or chip the panel but once you go to cut it, game over! ABSOLUTE TRASH!!! It is so brittle it is impossible to cut. I tried to use a saw, Sharp knife, Industrial shears. Same result. it just shatters when you cut more then 1". Add to that that it fades very bad within in a year of sun exposure. One more thing that was annoying is that the wave is not the normal pattern that has been made for 50 years. So if you are replacing older panels you will need to replace the wave strips below it. I was replacing some 10 year old panels after doing repairs below them. These new ones lasted 6 months before disintegrating.

                  Thermal performance of this product was not satisfactory. Installed against south facing building wall. Heat build up between wall and panel caused orange discoloration and also appeared to deform panel around support beams. They also had points of breakage. After 3 years, we needed to replace them. Pay more for a thermally tolerant material.

                    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.

                    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.

                    The panels worked out very well for my needs. The young lady at the register who check me out was an added bonus to a smooth and pleasant shopping experience. She is a positive addition to the team of representatives I encounter on a regular basis as Home Depot.

                    I used this to wrap around a tree to prevent squirrels from getting into my hummingbird feeder. It cuts easily and is bendable to a degree so be careful . So far it’s working.

                    I gave them a two star because I thought the video instructions were poor. great if you had a perfectly square level roof but didn't give tips if you didn't. Also had to buy one more shet at another Home Depot and they didn't match.
