First, that's a good price. Second, why are you getting white? are you growing in summer and need to cut heat down? What will you do in winter? We need more info for a better answer...


RE: Poly Panels.....

I cannot find panels this reasonable in anything but white.......

RE: Poly Panels.....

Those just say corregated plastic. It almost implies they are poly carb because of the shipping information......but you'd better check to see if they really are. I think not, given the price. They really don't give any specs with it. Where did you find out they have 70% light transmission? They do not indicate they are UV stable. If they aren't, they'll yellow, and crack eventually.
Sooner rather than later.

Got another plan. Found 6 glass panels out of sliding doors!
