Frequently Asked Questions
How easy are the greenhouses to install?
The greenhouse comes with all fixings necessary and a comprehensive instruction guide with drawings.
Care and attention is a must when handling glass , and as long as you don't try to rush and skip anything installation can be a rewarding project.
Our tip is to allow enough time, most people with a helper will build a 6x8 in a weekend, never part glaze and leave a greenhouse if you are not sure you have enough time, leave it until the next day.
If this seems a daunting task contact us for an installers details.
Horticultural or Toughened Glass?
Horticultural is the standard glass supplied with greenhouses, usually the panes are 2ft x 2ft with different shapes cut from these. The major disadvantage with Horticultural is that if broken the panes can leave large dangerous shards.
Toughened safety glass is becoming more and more popular... and more affordable.
Toughened Glass is much stronger than Horticultural, a rough guide is that it will take a hit by a football.
Toughened glass does not break into large shards or crack, it will either take the hit or the whole pane will disintegrate into hundreds of small pieces and greatly minimize injury.
All the manufacturers we sell use Long Pane Toughened Glass which is superior to small panes as there are no overlaps.
Will my greenhouse leak?
It is normal for a greenhouse to have some water ingress, as far as we are aware there is not a mainstream greenhouse on the market that is 100% leakproof.
How can I pay?
Payment can be made via card, cheque, bank transfer or PayPal.
