Lius,
Thank u for your reply. I've been trying to make my mind up about this roof for about 2 months now and my brain is fried. My heart keeps telling me I could probably afford to cover it in either double or treble wall PC, but my head cant really justify spending near a 1,000 on it.
Also if u see this, on the topic of cooling as u mentioned. The greenhouse is roughly 16' x 10' and 7.5' to wallplate level, i've been wondering if a thermostatically controlled extractor fan would be suitable. Other suggestions welcome!
Crispy.

Apart from the very essential heater on the odd frosty night in spring it would best to design your greenhouse for minimum energy consumption. An extractor fans would need to run a lot during the summer to cool the greenhouse (if the sun decides to shine) using a lot of electricity. The best solution would be to install a number of vents with automatic openers like the BayBliss.
