deck cover

I'm interested in using Lexan GE Thermoclear Plus plastic sheeting as a water tight roof structure over part of a deck. Has anyone had experience with this material? Any good systems for attaching the panels to a wood structure? All I can find are commercial applications. I'm interested in a smaller scale, 14x24, DIY project. Thanks in advance for your considered reply.

RE: deck cover This outfit has greatly improved the chanell system for install of the larger,4', roofing pannels over the old style I have used.

Or you can go with the suntuff 2' pannels the box stores sell.

They are both fastened with grometed screws. My site has a project roofed with 4' x 18' lexann pannels using the old channel system, what a Pain!! John Hyatt
