Are there alternatives? I just called a sign company close to me, and she is going to call me back with a price, but she asked if there wasn't anything I could buy at the hardware store. Obviously she's never had someone ask for a piece of coroplast for a guinea pig cage before.

She got me wondering about the alternatives. I just really want to get going on this asap, because the small cage is difficult to keep clean. It's not smelling yet, though.
 
Coroplast is sturdy and cheap. That's why it was the first choice because you can have sides for the cage. Other alternatives are anything that's waterproof. Plastic table cloth, vinyl flooring, or shower curtain will work, but you'll have to be careful with the pigs chewing them.
 
I use vinyl table cloth for mines. My cavies haven't chewed on it yet, so it's fine with me.
 
I love using for tarp its very cheap and if I need to change the size,or shape
of the cage I can I am not restrained by the coro. That I have no problems
with poo or hay getting out of the cage. I have 5 piggies

i have heard about using the plastic carpet protector mats that go under desk chairs as a coro alternative.
 
oh yeah never thought or heard that one on here it is much thicker than a tarp
so I guess if you were worried about something tearing to easily, or chewing
that would probabbly be the solution but my piggies arent like that.
Which is weird alot of other piggie moms and dads say their piggies do
nothing but nibble on things they shouldnt
