The best roofing product to use in children’s cubby houses!
We did A LOT of research and testing before finally settling on what we consider to be the best roofing product to use in children’s cubby houses. We believe cubbies should be as light and bright as possible, and also keep the heat out – so they don’t become little “hot boxes” that only spiders find enjoyable!
We use Solasafe Polycarbonate roofing – it’s brilliant for a few reasons:
- It’s provides 99.9% protection from harmful UV rays – how fantastic is it knowing your kids are outside in the fresh air, but are also completely safe from the suns rays!
- We use a colour called “Silver Mist” – we chose this colour because it is nice and light – so keeping as much light in the cubby as possible, yet it’s not see-through. You get to see lovely shadows through it (we see the shapes of our trees which surround our cubby).
- The panels we use provide outstanding heat reducing properties with metallic particle heat reflecting technology, so it does it’s best to keep as much heat out of the cubbies as possible. We love this because it makes our cubby houses comfortable for kids to be in year-round.
- Polycarbonate roofing is 250 times more impact resistant than glass and strong enough to withstand heavy hail (up to 2.5cm).
Without doubt polycarbonate roofing sheets are by far the most preferred transparent/translucent roofing product throughout the world.
It’s super easy to clean – you just need a soft brush and soapy water. I use a broom (with soft bristles) on ours and it works a treat.
Lastly, as long as all the guidelines are met, our polycarbonate roofing comes with a Lifetime warranty – how great is that!
