7 Reasons to Buy a Polycarbonate Patio Cover

When it comes to protecting and adding on to your outdoor space, choosing the right materials is as important as design. Polycarbonate roof panels, paired with aluminium frames, hold many benefits that make them an excellent choice for your patio. Below, we’ve detailed the top seven reasons why you should opt for a polycarbonate patio cover for your outdoor haven.

Durable and Weather-Resistant

1. UV Protection and Natural Light

Polycarbonate panels are great at filtering out the harmful UV rays of the sun, while still allowing natural light to brighten your patio, protecting both your skin and furniture.

2. Weathering and Discoloration Resistance

Unlike other materials, polycarbonate maintains its clarity and does not yellow, fracture, or become brittle over time—even when exposed to extreme weather conditions. This resistance ensures that your patio cover remains in good condition for season on season.

3. Long-lasting

Combining polycarbonate with a powder-coated aluminium frame creates a strong, rust-resistant patio cover that’s capable of withstanding tough weather like heavy snow, high winds, and intense heat, making it ideal for New Zealand climates.

Aesthetics and Design

4. Visual Appeal

With clear or tinted options, these patio covers can be tailored to complement your home's architectural style and desired light filtration, making them a seamless and stylish addition to your space.

5. Integrated Design Features

An innovative hidden gutter system manages rainwater effectively and maintains the patio cover's sleek and seamless aesthetic while keeping it clean.


Installation and Maintenance

6. Easy Installation

Designed for homeowner convenience, polycarbonate patio covers arrive as ready-to-assemble kits with pre-cut and pre-drilled components, making installation an easy weekend project.

7. Cost-Effective

Choosing DIY installation will save you labour costs in the short term and maintenance costs in the long term, as well as giving you a quick and easy backyard project that instantly enhances your space.
