So, has anyone used the plastic roofing material, it's a polycarbanite or some type of plastic as siding?

I have an old 10x10 lean two, it was used for the horse we had many year ago. Anyway, the old wood board sidnig is coming off, I just wanted to put something on it to keep the rain out. may son wants to put his "toys" in it when we move, but I can't be putting expensive siding on it.

I have used hte plastic sheets for small sheds as roofing, thought they might work as siding too.

Menards also has that heavy tar based corrugated roofing material on sale for $16 for a 48"x80" sheet, thought that might work too. 

 

Opinions on that stuff or suggestions for something pretty cheap?

It could be used, but will get brittle with age and be easily broken with a mower/weedeater after some time. Costs nearly the same a regular corrugated tin.

Check the pricing here.

I used a piece of the clear stuff as a window in my garage.  When you are in there in the morning or evening, you can here it sliding under the fasteners while it is expanding or contracting.  Sounds like popcorn at a slower pace.  If you are going to use it for siding, allow plenty of room for expansion.

I would go with the metal Marty, much more durable for not much more in cost. Just found this, if it's sold others normally pop up weekly. A lot of people order too much or wrong color & can't return.

I agree with the above. We used it as a window in the big cattle shed with similar results. Using the right stuff for the job at hand saves time and money in the end, and repairs always seem to be necessary at the least opportune time. The uses the shed is put to will change over time as well, and it's always nice to be prepared.

I may just get a couple big tarps and staple to the sides and tell the boy, be happy!  :bigrofl:

 

It may end up being our temporary rabbit barn while I get the other torn down then moved over to the new house.

 

I just need to look into pricing to see what wil be affordable, I have 3- 10' long by about 8' tall walls to cover.
