Like all materials on planet earth, which have their own weaknesses and downsides, polycarbonate is no different, but just like all other materials, these weaknesses can be compensated with the help of modern technology and careful planning prior to construction.

Depending on how structures are designed and built, there are a variety of profiles types, colors, and sizes to choose from.  Endless possibilities and combinations, as they say – the sky is the limit.
