    Are the corrugated plastic roofing sold at the big box stores coon proof?

    no... you can run 1/2" HW cloth under them though to make it coon proof.

    The plastic panels are not sturdy at all and anything with decent teeth can work right through it.

    Not only that, but the plastic corrugated sheets warp and sag terribly unless very well supported.

    yep! that are not very strong and during extreme heat can sag very badly. put up some battens and you should be good, but you would still need to run HW cloth underneath for predator protection.
