The advantage and disadvantage are one in the same:

Cheap.


Snow and Ice damage is a problem with plastic.

Disadvatage: not durable, leak at seams.
Advatage: price.

Advantages outweighed by the disadvantages, pay someone to install seamless aluminum.

I installed them on a garage up North. Cheap and quick to install. By the end of one summer, they were drooping. That winter they started cracking. The drooping caused the joints to leak also. Good luck.
