We have a 20 year old roofed cedar deck and at our home in Pickering. The roof had original green corrugated fibreglass which was worn, impossible to clean and brittle to the point of cracking and leaking. I started looking 2 years ago for a replacement and even though it was more expensive I chose the craftbilt north lander sky view low profile product as I was keeping the Cedar original frame and rafters. Due to Covid and a factory labour dispute the product took a couple of extra weeks. While waiting I downloaded the installation guide and asked staff a couple of technical questions which were answered very promptly. The product arrived and after prepping the rafters and frame it took about 13 hours to rip the polycarbonate into the correct width, install the couplers, waterproof gaskets, top rails and rail caps. The installation guide is pretty clear but for DIY doesn’t have every answer. Craftbilt’s technical support answered the rest. The big test came about 3 or 4 days after installation with a very heavy rain. No leaks! I would recommend the product and the company even for DIY installation like mine. This is a very high quality, durable and break resistant polycarbonate product. I sent a number of photos during and after installation to craftbilt and gave permission to share with other interested home installers.
