An affordable alternative to many types of roofing
PVC is often a viable roofing solution, especially for light strips, canopies or shelters. In addition to its sturdiness, low weight and excellent price-performance ratio, the particular ease in handling the plastic material makes it a good choice. Here are some basic instructions to keep in mind when roofing:
- Standard roof pitch should be 10°, minimum 7°.
- The substructure can be made with wooden or metal slats of 40 x 60 mm.
- The distances between the slats should be max. 50 cm for average snow and wind loads. The distance should be reduced accordingly for regions with higher loads.
- Cover the cross slats first with silver masking tape.
- Laying should occur against the prevailing direction of the wind, proceeding from the eaves to the roof ridge.
- First, pre-drill the plates with a plastic hole cutter, with holes measuring about 4-5 mm larger than the screw shank.
- The cross coverage should be one wave, or two waves for a roof pitch below 10°.
- Longitudinal overlap should measure 15 cm, or 20 cm for a roof pitch below 10°.
- Attach screws on each third wave crest at the edge of each wave.
- Use spacers!
- Plan on 15 to 20 fixtures per square metre.
- Finally, use fittings as needed.
