Rated 4 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Self build greenhouse
Ordered the ten as required but only needed 5 for job in hand. Overlap x 3.
Some arrived with damage to corners; i.e corners broken off; one sheet had a 500mm split to one edge.
Used on a warm May day; 2016. Product handles well without fear of cracking or shattering with 'normal' handling.
I fixed sheets down with the recommended Vistalux spacers/caps; (also reviewed)
Care is needed with drilling and accidently bending the sheet near drilled holes as material is quite brittle; wouldn't recommend using product on a very cold day.
I didn't have to cut any sheets, but would advise not to use a saw; rather use an angle grinder with a metal cutting disc; if cutting were required.
I caught the edge of a sheet with a saw when trimming off a rafter end resulting in a 50mm split; which I successfully repaired with clear silicone sealant
Suffice it to say; use on a warm, non windy day, take your time and be careful. For the price delivered the product is good

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TimDS7 Better than the thin stuff
I have just finished replacing the roof of a car port with these sheets, replacing old, brittle, discoloured and noticeably thinner sheets.
As far as I'm concerned, it was well worth buying these thicker, heavier-duty sheets instead of the cheaper, thinner ones - I just have much more confidence in the end result, and even handling the stuff is easier.
The only question mark is why they should be so much more expensive than the thinner ones.

Â by dannythevampire Brilliant roofing solution
I used this product to roof an area 5.2m x 3m spanning a space between two existing buildings.
I found it very easy to cut using a fine metal cutting blade in my angle grinder (as recommended). However, I found that a wood drill rather than a masonry drill (which tended to slip) was better for drilling the holes.
Lightweight to handle but sturdy and since installing, It has withstood some severe storms over the last few weeks. I would certainly recommend this for any DIY`er like myself.
Only one negative - the screws supplied to fix the panels were,in my opinion, poor quality. Under pressure the slots got chewed up and I ended up using some standard countersunk screws of the same length which performed perfectly every time.
I think that Vistalux should look into changing these screws and I think Screwfix should start stocking the ridges which I had to buy eslewhere!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by zion Lean-to re- roofing job.
I wanted to replace the roofing sheets on a lean-to and Screwfix had the perfect product for the job. Ordering was easy and delivery was exactly when I was told it would be. The sheets are top quality heavy duty but were easy to cut and handle (with an angle grinder using a metal cutting wheel). Got the pvc flashing and eaves fillers in the same order. Very pleased with the result which should last for many years to come.
Well done again Screwfix!
