Very initially, buildings were made of perishable materials like leaves, branches and animal hides. With invention, materials like stone, clay and timber were used. Slowly came the age of bricks and concretes. Then, with industrial revolution, came metals and steel, which was considered as a revolution of architecture. Today, we see buildings made of bricks, concrete, wood, steel and glass. These materials are no more a revolution.
Now, other innovative materials are coming up in the industry of architecture. With ongoing research and innovative technologies, a variety of modern material options have become available today. With the styles and designs on modern construction, we need materials that can maintain structural strength while reducing its impact on the environment. Polycarbonate is one of the latest materials used in construction because they can withstand harsh weather conditions like wind, rain, hail and snow. They are also highly corrosion resistant and can also resist fire. Thus, polycarbonate roofing is one of the best and most popularity-gaining materials today that is used in greenhouses, skylights, pergolas, sidings, sidelights and many other roofing applications.
Modern construction materials also need to be able to adapt to various climatic conditions from freezing sub-zero temperatures to dry heat or high humidity. Ever since man started constructing dwellings to reside in, building materials have been evolving only in an attempt to defeat weather. Let us look at the evolution in detail.
