I have a large storage building 30 years old with a metal roof. Near the top I installed filon ( like fiberglass) roof panels for light. They matched perfectly. The metal has lasted well with paint, however the filon has worn out. ( it's life span was 30 years). I can no longer find filon or anything .... even metal to match that pattern any more. Without making an eyesore out of the repair, is there a solution ? Harry

My suggestion would be to send photos of your roofing panels to some of the larger producers of that type of panel (Fabral, McElroy, Metal Sales, MBCI, Butler, Vic West, etc.) and see if they know of any transluscent panels that are available to match your roofing profile.
