Ever wondered why your polycarbonate roof / laser light roof cracks and pops when the sun comes out? The roofing sheets are expanding in the sun, causing that awful, annoying noise!
To stop this noise it is recommended to follow these simple tips –
The aptly named “Anti Noise Tape” fits it name perfectly! Rolled out across the battens before the sheets are installed, it creates a barrier between the roof sheet and batten, softening the noise.
Next we suggest using “self cutting screws” when installing the polycarbonate roofing sheets. These screws have little sharp “wings” which cut the hole larger than the width of the screw, allowing for expansion and contraction of the polycarbonate sheet.
With these simple steps you will be well on your way to enjoying your outdoor room or similar roofing project even more!
