Frequently Asked Questions About Our Large Greenhouse Kits for Sale

One of the first things you should look out for when buying a greenhouse shed combo kit is the wall panels. The different materials used for panels could drastically change your experience. A solar greenhouse kit, for example, is meant to use photovoltaic panels to direct the sun's energy to the ventilation system.

If you don't have experience with greenhouse kits, you may notice that glass panels are the most common material there. This is because they look clean, and they also allow more light to come in, which is beneficial for your plants.

Unfortunately, glass can get easily broken, and getting a bunch of panels made from this material can get expensive. You can expect many scratches over time as well.

Thankfully, there's a modern material that's being used in greenhouses, and said material is available for many of our greenhouse kits for your backyard. It's the multiwall polycarbonate.

One of the greatest things about getting double/multi-wall polycarbonate on your cedar greenhouse (or any other greenhouse type) is that it's low maintenance, so you won't have to worry about extensive damage over time.

Even though polycarbonate won't let as much light come into your cedar greenhouse as glass panels, it does a great insulation and retention job for the inside. Furthermore, it doesn't break like glass.

Finally, you can expect multi-wall polycarbonate panels in your cedar greenhouse kit to last up to 10 years.

Yes! Most people get shelves for their greenhouses so that they can make the most out of the space they have there.

However, keep in mind that certain products in stock aren't large enough to fit many shelves, so make sure you get an amount of furniture according to what you can accommodate inside your greenhouse.

Some people prefer to get a Dutch door installed instead of a regular one, as it helps them keep unwanted guests out of the greenhouse. Moreover, it promotes better ventilation. However, this will involve an additional expense if your kit doesn't already come with this door type.

The answer to this question may seem like a no-brainer for most, but sometimes, it isn't as simple, as some people have different needs or budgets.

Surrounding costs, it will always be better to buy a pre-made kit. These products tend to be more affordable because they already include most of the things you need to get started.

If you were to build a greenhouse from scratch, you would have to:

  • Create a foundation and choose the right flooring.
  • Evaluate your current sunlight direction and wind conditions.
  • Get raw materials and accessories.
  • Build a roof with proper vents and windows.
  • Get accessories.

In a sense, building a greenhouse on your own would give you more customization freedom than buying a greenhouse frame kit, but that may not be worth it for most people.

To summarize, buying a kit will be cheaper than building a greenhouse.

There are many frame types you can get for your greenhouse, including:

  • Wood
  • Galvanized Steel
  • Aluminum
  • PVC Plastic Piping

Wood is one of the most common options, as they're affordable and low maintenance. If you're looking for something sturdy, then wood will be excellent, as long as you take care of it.

On the other hand, aluminum and galvanized steel are also popular among many people. Aluminum is lightweight and corrosion-resistant, and steel is extremely resistant to cold climates, which may make the latter more appealing to some.

The main drawbacks of aluminum frames are that they're not aesthetically pleasing, and there's also not much variety in sizes, which may make it harder for you to find what you're looking for (which won't be a problem here, as you're buying a kit).

On the other hand, the primary drawback of steel frames is that it's one of the most expensive options you can get.

Finally, PVC piping is the most affordable material on the list, but it's not as durable. In the end, feel free to choose the option that fits your needs the best. If you don't live in a place with extremely cold temperatures, for example, you don't necessarily have to get steel frames.

It depends on the materials. Most of the time, you will need to pay attention to the frames and panels. Typically, the frame can last for decades with proper maintenance, especially if you use something like aluminum.

Wood frames can also last longer if you take care of them.

As for the panels, it also depends on the materials. Polycarbonate panels can last up to 15 years, approximately. Feel free to ask our team for more information on what you can expect from each model in our collection.

When customers access our site, they quickly notice there's a wide range of greenhouse kits they can purchase. If you're a fan of octagonal greenhouse kits, then you can go for one of the options listed here.

On the other hand, if you want to go for a more "traditional" option, the sturdy and stylish Meridian Greenhouse from our collection will do wonders.

Overall, you should consider what you're using the greenhouses for and how comfortable you want to be. An octagon greenhouse kit, for example, is more appropriate for those who want a 360° view of everything.

Our cedar greenhouse kits for sale are certainly a durable and high-quality option for most people, but is cedar better than other materials?

While we can't say if cedar is better than other materials, as the answer mostly depends on where you're setting up your greenhouse, we can say that cedar is excellent as a material because it retains heat.

Plastic and aluminum pieces don't retain heat like cedar, which gives it an advantage. If you need good insulation in winter to keep your plants healthy, for example, then a cedar greenhouse will help.
