Polycarbonate Roof

Recommended Posts

Hi, i just moved to my re-sale condo, it is a ground floor unit with a small patio. There is an existing wood structure (trellis) in the patio, and i want to install a polycarbonate roof, approximately L3.6m x W1.5m x 10mm (thickness). I have been asking quotations from many roof contractors, the quotations range from S$700 to S$1000.

So anyone know whether the quotation is reasonable, personally i find the quotations are a bit too expensive, can anybody give any advice, or if you know any roof contractor that can do the job with reasonable price, please let me know.

Btw, i have done some homework, the material cost is around S$150, so add in the labour and some profit margin to the contractor, my budget is around S$450 - S$500.

Thank you :)

I think it's about there ... the contractors need to earn to pay their workers too ... i believe Hendon C provides a good quote.

The pricing is around that region and the quotations sound reasonable.

In my opinion $500 - $150(raw material cost)

leaving $350 to cover labour, transport, material storage cost, overheads as well as profit will be difficult...

The quality of materials and workmanship is important. If the area covered is big or irregular in shape, there is a need to join a few pieces of the polycarbonate roof together. Over time, subject to the elements of the weather, there could be leakages on the joints.

Hence, your selection criteria should not be solely on cost consideration. The experience and reputation of the contractors matter.
