Answer: 
I wanted to clarify Wayne's response to this question. Snow density can range from about 100 kg/m^3, the very light and fluffy snow, to about 800 kg/m^3, a dense, wet snow. Using the 85 kg/m^2 snow load provided by Wayne, you can convert to determine that this greenhouse is rated for approximately the following snow falls:

About 4.0 inches (0.10 meters) of a very dense, wet snow (830 kg/m^3 density)
About 9.2 inches (0.23 meters) of a moderate snow (365 kg/m^3 density)
I double-checked these calculations, so to the best of my knowledge they're fairly accurate. Also remember that this is the specification given by the company who manufactures the greenhouse, so they'll be sure to calculate a factor of safety into their specifications. It's quite possible any given one of these greenhouses could withstand additional snow, but there is no guarantee given that it will. Read Less

It's a difficult question for me because I live in the New Orleans metro area. We probably get a few inches of snow once every ten to twenty years.
Although the polycarbonate material is fairly thin, I think that the roof's slope is slippery enough and steep enough to prevent a significant build-up of snow. On sunny days, even in the winter, the greenhouse effect should warm up the interior to melt any snow that might collect on the roof.
Also, I keep a small, electric heater in the greenhouse in winter to keep the temperature well above 40 degrees at night. That might aid in warming the roof enough to prevent build-up, too.
Hope this info helps.

Movable once assembled?

This question is from Snap and Grow 6 ft. x 8 ft. Silver Polycarbonate Greenhouse

Does anyone have any idea how hard this would be to move once assembled? I know it is meant to be anchored down well which we intend to do with some heavy timbers and steel rod, but suppose the timbers that it sits on are tied together well and we want to move this around the farm occasionally with the tractor and forks. Thoughts? Will it withstand that kind of occasional flexing or fall apart?

Answer: 
Hi Nick,
It is possible to move the Snap & Grow 6' x 8' one assembled. However, you will need to secure and anchor it to the heavy timbers and steel rod at its base.
Thanks!

Hi Hum,
There is no need to take the greenhouse apart during winter season, you can use sprinklers or a heater as long as you follow the manufacturer' advise and keep it at a safe distance.
Thanks!

Answer: 
It's less than 5 feet, but if you install the optional shelving, you basically just walk down the middle under the highest point of the greenhouse.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 113 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product seems good; directions need improvement Assembly directions, if you can call them that, left much to be desired. With little to no text, you are left to decipher what each picture represents, and while that works for most of the steps in the assembly process, it doesn't for a few critical junctures. Assembly time cut be cut by at least a third with some clearer directions and some written explanations. Aside from the directions, the product seems to be of relatively decent quality. Time will tell if it will hold up to a Vermont winter. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased with this greenhouse This was a gift so I was little dubious about this greenhouse. I had some help to put this together which made it easy. We made some modifications because I am tall and I needed install it on a slope. We dug out a foundation and then used landscape timbers to build up a frame. It increased the interior height about 18 inches which works very well for me. We didn't want to modify the door so we created steps in and out of the greenhouse. I purchased the optional tie down kit and with the crazy windstorms we have been having I am glad to report it is still standing! We buried a heat cable under the stones that we use as a floor and I also have a fan heater. The fan heater is temperature controlled so that gives me a lot of confidence during this cold snap. I am going to get a thermostat for the floor heater before next winter to be really sure of it not freezing and I may caulk the thin gaps in the metal base if it is too drafty. I am definitely a novice with using a greenhouse though. I promptly killed my first batch of seedlings because I didn't think about how quickly they would dry out in the warmth, duh! The second batch looks strong. April 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not good in wind We have wind storms with with gusts to 60 mph. It was knocked down the first storm, it ripped out of the metal base.tearing the few screws it has holding it down. I rebuilt it and added steel aircraft cables to add support and prevent it from happening again, but the wind still this time caused it to fail again. It just forced it collapse. Nice greenhouse if you can locate it out if the wind. March 15, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by The good, the bad, and the ugly! (And the satirically funny!!) While on vacation at the beginning of July, I thought “wouldn’t it be cool to have a little greenhouse in the back yard?” So I bought this one. Good: a few days later it arrived and I was so excited! The first thing I did was to unpack everything and inventory all the parts – just like the instruction manual suggested. Bad: well I was short 9 flange nuts, so I contacted customer service via email, and the next day I was informed they would send me the missing nuts. Good: only a couple days later they arrived. While I was waiting, I built a platform for the greenhouse, with a batch of pavers I had on hand for other projects. After a day-and-a-half the platform was done, so I sat down to read the instructions to see how far I could get without the missing nuts. Good: 4 of the nuts were meant as spares and the other 5 I didn’t need until the very end so I got started. Bad: the instructions indicated the greenhouse should be assembled and THEN placed on the base. Well, that just didn’t make sense, so I thought I’d start by building the base frame, attaching it to the platform, and then assembling the greenhouse on it; if that didn’t work, I would start over. I did avoid actually attaching the greenhouse to the base, however. Ugly: inserting the plastic attachment pieces into the metal framework was tough. Using the lubricating spray helped, but a lot of pounding was necessary and some of the pieces from the factory came with the attachment pieces inserted – but not completely – so more pounding to finish the job. I was trying to do this by myself, but did need to enlist my son for some of the pounding before the frame was complete. More ugly: some of the channels on the metal pieces were bent, so I had to use flat pliers to smooth out the bends, a little finessing and they were pretty okay. As I was constructing the framework I had issues while pounding one attachment point and having others separate, so I had to keep going back to joints that were already done and keep tapping until everything finally stayed together. Bad and downright comical: they give you a 2” x3” piece of duct tape to seal the seam between the 2 pieces of the roof ridge. Even “funnier” the piece tears almost immediately; good thing I had a roll of the same duct tape on hand. I applied 3 pieces across each other to actually seal the seam in the ridge properly. More ugly: when inserting the polycarbonate panels, I found 2 of the grooves in the metal framework were so tightly closed I had to use a broad knife to open the gap enough to accept the panels. At another point, I found I either had to drill holes in the edge of a few panels or cut off the corners just to insert some brackets that needed to be screwed together. Numerous hours later it was finally time to attach the greenhouse to the base. Real ugly: the fasteners they supply for this are tough to turn far enough to actually hold the greenhouse onto the base. During this whole process I finally broke out a 10mm socket to get the job done; the “plastic” wrench that comes with the kit is a farce and I even had problems with an open-end wrench (I didn’t have metric). And some of the engineering for this thing seems to have zero tolerance while some if it just seems sloppy. They give you a piece of peel and stick foam to insulate the hinged side of the doors, but there are still gaps where the doors meet and where the vent meets the roof that still allow outside air to penetrate. I don’t know how well sealed this greenhouse should be, but I definitely plan on doing something about the gaps before winter. All in all I like my little greenhouse and hope it actually proves to be a good investment. I still need to build tables and shelves for the inside, but it’s still summer so I have time before I start planting. Caveat: don’t build a greenhouse when it’s 90 degrees outside, the sun is shining, and the heat index exceeds 100!! I started this July 9th (including building the platform) and finished July 30th, but I could only work on the weekends and in the morning before it got too hot or sunny. As negative as this all may sound, I am glad I did this - go figure! August 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I relly have wanted a greenhouse! The instructions were a bit difficult and required hours of study before we could begin building. Once we started, we did manage to get on fairly well. We are at the door installation right now. I'm looking forward to many seasons of use. June 21, 2016

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Couple of missing parts, happy with the end result. Overall we're happy with our purchase. Unfortunately when we inventoried our delivery (highly recommended before you get started) we discovered that we had two of one part and were missing another. We were also missing a few nuts. We contacted the customer service number on the instruction manual and the needed parts were delivered within about a week. Once we had all the parts, the whole construction took about 7 hours. In the end we're happy with the completed greenhouse. September 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good addition to our garden My husband and I read the reviews and with the advice to use the silicone spray were able to build it in two days without too much trouble. After a few adjustments everything fit very well except for the gutters. We are still trying to get them to stay on properly. Overall we are pleased with the product. June 3, 2016
