Custom Greenhouse Cover

Lowe's sells various large rolls of 6 mil plastic that I was thinking about using as a cover for my custom greenhouse project. Does anyone see a problem with using that material over standard "greenhouse film"?
Expect that plastic to last one season; it breaks down quickly with UV exposure. I regard inexpensive GH plastics as false economy. It really depends what your needs and expectations are, though.
I had not even considered that, but it totally makes sense now that Im thinking about it. I'm going to want it to last more than one season so I guess that rules out the cheap stuff. Thanks for the reply.
