  • Cage Build

    I'm thinking of building my own cage but I'm not sure what material to use. Melamine and MDF don't react to good with water right? I want something cheap too, not like PVC. If someone can tell me how to make melamine waterproof that would be good too. Thanks.

    Melamine isn't waterproof and you can't make it waterproof without using materials harmful to your snake. With that said when properly constructed melamine is a great water resistant product.
    Just be sure tat there is no exposed particle board edges and all corners and edges inside the cage are sealed with silicone.

      when i build all my enclosures i use Minwax polyurethene to coat it, i put atleast 4 coats on it then for all the corners you have to seal it with a caulking, i use from DAP Alex Plus Clear Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone You can buy all these at your local Hardware store or if you have a walmart near buy they carry it aswell
