Skylights: Plastic materials can be used for both the skylight covering and glazing. An entire roofing skylight structure can be built form a single piece of plastic and even shaped to overlap the frames, thereby minimizing the possibility of water leakage, and reducing both framing and maintenance costs. The main difference between plastic vs glass skylights is their level of safety hazard; plastic skylights are lighter in weight and resistant to shattering, unlike glass skylights. The glazing of plastic skylights is usually done with either polycarbonate or acrylic materials. While acrylic materials are resistant to degradation by means of ultraviolet rays, polycarbonates are generally sturdier and longer lasting.
