Ideal material for homemade Greenhouse?

I have built myself a greenhouse but struggling what material to use as panels? I have been deciding between polycarbonate and glass? Does anyone have any advice?

I used polycarbonate for mine. Installation is easier. The roof is 4 foot by 12 foot panels, which you couldn't do easily with glass. Installation is also safer, not having to worry about the possibility of glass breaking. And polycarbonate can take an occasional bump from tools or pots without breaking.

I think Polycarbonate could be the right option for me. What is a reasonable price for cut to size polycarbonate greenhouse panels? This is one site which is on my radar what do you think?

I've no idea what it would cost to cut polycarbonate to size but I do know that often cutting fees exceed the price of material. I would suggest cutting it yourself, it's not very difficult. And polycarbonate is easier to cut than plexiglass. http://www.controlbooth.com/forums/scenery-props-rigging/12031-how-cut-polycarbonate.html
