Cutting corrugated sunroof
 
A client has a corrugated semi-clear plastic covering over their porch area & the roof is angled from an over hang of about three feet at the peak to zero where the roof meets the walls. The verticle sheets (on the roof) at right angles but the overhang area has been trimmed to accomadate the angle. I need to replace some of the material but, as it is about fifteen years old, I am concerned about cutting the plastic without it cracking, splitting or chipping. What is the best method to cut this material ... especially considering its age?
Thanks.
