I guess that would depend on where you live. I am in the usa, on the east coast. I paid 25 dollars for my coro and could of got a piece of linoleum for 15-20.

You might be able to find a sign shop willing to give you a full sheet. The choloroplast on my girls' cage was free because there was a misprint on a sign. The owner couldn't use it for anything, so he gave it to me. I hoped the same would happen when I made the boys' cage, but I'm not lucky enough to have that happen twice. :)

I live in the U.S.A., in Texas and my coroplast was only $7 for a 4by8 sheet.

In the UK, CavyCrew, correx is usually cheaper and is better than linoleum, even though lino does make a good substitute.

You'll need at least an 8ft by 4ft sheet of correx to make a 2x4 with loft, but that size of cage isn't big enough for 5 pigs. Two sheets of correx would be better for a bigger cage, and you can cut the correx if you need to and tape the pieces together.

It cost me $25 dollors for a sheet of coroplast here in Oceanside, CA.

Yes I think my CC was about $25 but that was because I had them cut it for me. I still had to get my girlfriend to pick up the larger piece in her station wagon.

I have just ordered a 8 foot x 8 foot piece of correx for £13. I think thats good value!

I recently got my Coroplast, 2 pretty large pieces, cut and all for $10. I didn't even bother to price Linoleum, though, so I'm not sure if that was cheaper for me or not. I think Linoleum would have been easier to work with, but the Coroplast looks really nice.

I live in Texas and my Coroplast was 13 for a 4X8 sheet. I believe that was a fairly good price, I called around and found some sign shops wanted 20 for 4X8. Either way you go, linoluem or coroplast, I highly suggest shopping around.
