Frequently Asked Questions

What is polycarbonate?

Polycarbonate is a type of transparent thermoplastic known for its durability. It is a good choice for rooflights because of its light weight, its cost-effectiveness and the fact that it can be easily recycled at the end of the rooflight’s useful life. Some of the other key properties of polycarbonate include: Its resistance to temperature extremes: Polycarbonate holds up equally well in temperatures between -20 and +140 Celsius. Its impact resistance: Polycarbonate is highly resistant to impact damage. So if a tree branch falls on your rooflight it may well emerge unscathed.Its ability to provide UV protection: Many types of polycarbonate provide effective protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays. 

What’s the right way to clean polycarbonate rooflights?

As with any type of roof window, the biggest challenge when it comes to cleaning polycarbonate rooflights is not which soap to use (although it should be mild and biodegradable) but how to reach the rooflights. If they are installed on a flat commercial roof your maintenance people should have no problem reaching and cleaning them. But if you have them installed on the sloped roof of your home you may want to hire a professional cleaning company to clean them a couple of times per year.

Do I need planning permission to install polycarbonate rooflights?

If the polycarbonate rooflights protrude more than 15cm above the surface of the roof you will need to obtain planning permission. Likewise if your home or business is a listed building or it is located in a conservation area you will need planning permission. If, however, the rooflights do not extend more than 15cm and the other criteria do not apply you can install them without planning permission.
