Plastic or glass?

(1/2) > >>

Violacea:
What kind of material is your green house made out of?  Does using glass keep it warmer then if you use plastic?  And I mean hard plastic, not the rolled stuff.  

We moved here last May, and I was so happy the new house came with a green house, something I've always wanted, but it's in really poor shape.  I'm just trying to figure out what will cover it best, and hopefully what will be the most inexpensive.  Any tips or advice would be much appreciated.

glass keeps it warmer, say you have 2 green houses, one of glass and one of plastic. When light and warmth enter the glass it dosnt make it back out, when made of plastic it gets out and at a relly fast pace. So glass is a little more $$$ but it is better, bye

If you want warm keeping plastic it will be proferrional green house plastic , as we say cell plate. But it is expencive. .

Also glass is expencive, but you can get it without money if you ask it from firm, which change windows to houses. You just cut proper size plates from used.

Glass house must be pretty. You just make your own size and with your frames and you install standard shape glass pane in it.

Also you can try if you get ready to use glass house frame elements from the firm (without glasses.)

I forgot to ask, did you get all the info you needed? There are some great books on the subject, just go to your local book store, bye :D

Violacea:
I've already raided the libraries, but they had zilch. To low on $$ for bookstores.  I really like Finman's idea, but not sure we can make it work as the framing is already established.  We'll work out something though.
