Help attaching plexiglass/lexan panels to patio cover.
I have an existing 16' x 12' patio cover made of crisscrossing beams/joists, spaced 48" OC. I want to install 48" x 48" glass, plexiglass or lexan panels on to the wood beams to make a clear, waterproof outdoor cover. (I want to use flat panels, NOT multi-wall or corrugated.)
Has anyone had experience with glass, plexi or polycarb panels on a patio roof? Haven't determined which material is best suited.
Are there any suggestions for attaching them? I see all sorts of bracket systems to attach polycarb multi-wall panels, but nothing for a 1/8" to 1/4" flat sheet.
I've considered using wood screws, silicone sealant and wood strips to cap it, but I'm concerned with plastic expansion and water runoff.
