Plexiglas and Lexan Can Be Used in Variety of Projects for Arlington, VA Homes
Plexiglas and Lexan are both a glass like plastic that can be used for many projects that traditionally call for standard glass. Arlington, VA homeowners have inquired about the use of Plexiglas and Lexan for small greenhouses in their urban yards. We have also had condominium owners and those who live in apartments ask about the use of Plexiglas and Lexan for their balconies. The answer to these questions is that plastic can be used in either one of these scenarios. Using plastic instead of glass for greenhouses can be a great alternative as to provide longevity and durability for those who desire to grow vegetation year round, especially in urban areas. Also, using either Plexiglas or Lexan for balconies is a safe and reliable alternative to traditional gates on balconies.
Customers are often uncertain of what type of plastic Plexiglas and Lexan are; Plexiglas is the brand name for acrylic sheeting and Lexan is the brand name for polycarbonate sheeting. There are subtle differences between the two and can usually be used interchangeably.
