Glass vs polycarbonate rooflights: Which is right for you?

When choosing a rooflight for your next residential or commercial project, you’ll be presented with two options; glass or polycarbonate? To help you decide, we’ve put together their key benefits and differences between the two.

Polycarbonate rooflights

Benefits of polycarbonate rooflights

Polycarbonate is a type of plastic that can be easily moulded, therefore its often used in the construction industry. Featuring 4 main benefits;

  1. Budget friendly
  2. Strong and durable
  3. Lots of natural light
  4. Thermally efficient


Purely because they’re cheaper to make, polycarbonate rooflights are an inexpensive option for those on a budget. Polycarbonate rooflights undergo rigorous testing and are practically unbreakable – even when broken, they will not shatter. The polycarbonate rooflights feature a dome shape, which helps capture as much natural light as possible. Triple, sometimes quad layer polycarbonate is available to boost thermal performance, therefore making your rooflight environmentally friendly.
