The polycarbonate on this greenhouse is very thin, similar in quality to the plastic packaging a child's toy comes in when you purchase it. It is not made of corrugated polycarbonate panels. The "metal" frame is very flimsy. I would be very surprised if the greenhouse survived an average thunderstorm or windy day in this area. If you use a weed eater around this greenhouse, use care, it will probably cut thru the walls.

Seems like a good product for the price. We will see how well it does when the wind picks up. The instructions leave a bit to be desired as they're nothing but pictures. Also not a fan of how spread out all the hardware is, but I suppose it could be worse. I would recommend.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by katznjammies BUYER BEWARE!! PALRAM WON'T HONOR WARRANTY EVEN IF THEY HAVE PARTS!!
1/12/12 we purchased the above greenhouse. We set it up in late Feb. or early Mar. of the same year. First the instructions were terrible. Whoever does their technical writing of instructions needs a new job. Then, 2 weeks ago, we had "mountain waves" which are gusts up to 38 mph. (Palram said greenhouse would withstand 50 mph winds) and the result was almost all of the plastic connection pieces (which hold aluminum together) broke. We thought we still had the 60% warranty in place. WRONG!! Palram said that they didn't stand behind this "weather event" but we could BUY the connectors from them. Just so we're all clear on this, I did research greenhouses and from all I read, I THOUGHT this one would be fine. We had it anchored into the ground and onto our log cabin. Boy was I wrong. If you're buying a greenhouse, do yourself a favor and don't buy from this company. They don't stand behind ANYTHING!! Do like I've just done and buy AMERICAN!

Patience is a virtue. It takes great patience to erect this green house kit. It has many pieces, but they are ingeniously engineered to lock together when everything goes according to plan. The plans - the instructions only have words at the first of the process, the rest of it only has numbers which must match up precisely. To its credit, however, each piece is carefully numbered and that is a huge plus.
A rubber mallet is a must, as some pieces need a bit of an "adjustment". I found that a pair of metal shears helps to trim the tough polycarbonate panels when they don't slide in correctly.
As I said, patience is a virtue. I wore out two friends who were helping me. It got so frustrating that we threw up our hands and called it a day - twice. But persistence won out and the thing came together and is very satisfactory.
A few weeks ago, a snow avalanche descended from the roof of the house onto the roof of the greenhouse. The polycarbonate panels bent almost double and mostly came out of the frame, but when I got the snow removed, they popped back in to place, none the worse for wear.
Tip, wear light weight leather gloves, read the instructions completely to the end before beginning the project, and have lots of patience.

Bought this for a smoke house. Put composite decking under it and it turned out great. Use it for a greenhouse along with my smoker and couldn't have asked for a better set up. My neighbors are jealous. They bought a different brand and have had nothing but trouble.Wish I had room for more. My habaneros think its the best place ever to grow.

No, the greenhouse is not a snap to put up. I was fortunate to have a helper who excels at following difficult instructions and identifying poorly labeled parts. With that very talented assistant it took about 10 hours to assemble the item. Yes, parts of the design are ingenious and I will enjoy the item now that it is up. But I wish the plastic walls were twice as thick, that it came in green, that the parts were better marked, and that the door was less flimsy. Note you'll also be needing the shelves to really get use out of this item and those shelves are not cheap. So, bottom line an OK product that should be bought by someone with above average assembling skills due to fair directions and poor packing by the maker.

Don't put this anywhere the wind blows. It'll fall apart!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gary like it for the most part
the instructions would have been much more helpful if some words were inserted with the schematics of it. the plastic tools provided were flimsy, but we made do with some homemade contraptions. love the greenhouse, seems very sturdy and does what we had hoped, all in all a good product.
