Where to buy greenhouse glass sheets?


Hi Folks


Due to the recent bad weather, one of my glass sheets on my greenhouse cracked. It is not ‘proper’ glass, so could anybody tell me the proper name for it? Where could I buy a sheet for a reasonable price on line? Are the sizes standard?


Thanks in advance for your responses.

No one knows where on the planet you are because there's no location in your profile.
Easy to fix just go to quick links to edit.
Got a picture?
Any hardware, Lowes, Home Depot, Menards will have Plexiglas and some Lexan in stock.
Plexiglas is cheaper but tends to yellow and craze over time.

Grower's Supply The material can be anything from fiberglass rolls to triple wall polycarbonate. You've got to do the research to find the best choice for your climate and pocketbook. The more expensive stuff does tend to resist UV degradation longer though.

You can also go to your local Glass Shop. They would have the ovens to heat the material for forming any curve that is needed.

Post a picture of the Greenhouse.
