Which roof panel to buy?

By now, you may have heard of the trend of using roof bags as roof bags, or using clear roof panels as roof panels.

They are both useful in many ways, but with some very important caveats. 

1.

You may not need to use clear roof paneling on your roof, unless you have a high-rise. 

2.

You don’t have to install them if you already have a roof.

If you want to use them, you will have to remove them.

If they were installed correctly, they should not pose a safety hazard. 

3.

You have to be sure to get the roof panel and the bag at the same time.

If one of the panels is damaged or is missing, it will be difficult to repair it. 4.

You can’t get clear roof modules in the USA.

They’re not available here, but they can be ordered from Canada. 

5.

You need to buy the correct bag for the roof you’re using, because if you’re trying to reuse the roof and the bags get damaged, the roof won’t be safe to use. 

6.

You’ll need a very good roof, and you’ll need to know how to remove the roof. 

7.

You will have problems if you try to install new roofing on a building that has been roofed, because you’ll have to take down the whole roof and you won’t have a clear roof. 

 8.

If the roof is made of plastic, you’ll be able to use roof bags on it.

If not, the plastic will shatter and you may end up with a hole that you can’t remove. 

9.

It’s best to use a plastic roofing bag for your roof when you’re on your way to a construction site or a job site.

You could also use a non-plastic roof bag to protect your roof from the elements. 

10.

You must be very careful with the roof bag. 

It’s better to use plastic bags than plastic roof bags because plastic bags are prone to cracking. 

11.

It is not recommended to use any sort of clear roof bag if you have to cover a roof panel. 

12.

Be careful with your bag.

You might need to remove it if you do something like remove the panels or take out the bags or panels. 

13.

You’re probably going to have to get rid of the bag if the roof goes up, or if the bags are damaged. 

14.

You should have a plan for how to reuse your roof.

You probably shouldn’t put them on a balcony or patio, because there’s no way to reuse them. 

15.

You won’t always be able.

If a roof fails, it may take up to a week for the bags to heal and you can use them again. 

 16.

You cannot use clear panels on a high rise. 

17.

If it is important that the roof be clear, it is recommended that you use a clear panel that is 1/2 inch thick or thicker than the rest of the roof in order to prevent damage to the surrounding building. 

18.

It can be dangerous to have a transparent roof on your home.

If there is a roof covering, you might be able the panels will break off and fall off. 

19.

You would be better off using a clear bag over a roof with a plastic bag, and a plastic panel over a clear one. 

20.

The bags are not going to be strong enough to withstand a roofing hammer. 

21.

If your roof has been damaged or you don’t like how your roof looks, you can buy a clear fabric roof bag and use it for a new roof.

That will last you longer and give you more protection than a plastic one.
