It is hard to say since your profile doesn't say what zone you are in. Perhaps a twin wall or tri-wall polycarbonate. You will need U channel to seal off the ends to provide the insulation layers and to keep the cells clean. If you are in zone 7 or higher, try corrugated polycard, single thickness.

I would like to say that I have put Clay Roofing Tiles. It is very good and I got the professional service from Ranger Roofing.
