Why Choose Aluminium?
Compared to wooden greenhouses, an aluminium greenhouse has several advantages including a natural resistance against rust, weathering, rot and decay, especially if left unmaintained for long periods of time. They also won’t require any attention in regards to treating and painting, meaning that they’re virtually maintenance free.
Metal greenhouses are also cheaper to buy than same-sized greenhouses made from timber. This is normally due to the fact that timber greenhouses require a lot more involvement in preparing, cutting and assembling the required parts, whereas it’s a lot easier to manufacture the parts required for an aluminium greenhouse.
Brands vs Pricing
With over 300 different models available, it can a little overwhelming when trying to find that perfect greenhouse to match both your needs, garden and budget. We offer such a wide range of popular UK brands to ensure there's one suitable for every gardener.
Although each greenhouse we sell has been approved by us and will be perfectly capable of offering many years of service and enjoyment, when it comes to brands and pricing, the phrase 'you get what you pay for’ certainly rings true. Especially with aluminium greenhouses, higher quality models will usually have stronger framing and some will have additional bracing making them better suited for locations that are prone to high winds or heavy amounts of snow. Among other aspects worth considering is glazing, whether it is toughened, horticultural or polycarbonate and its thickness. As an example, toughened glazing on a Halls Popular greenhouse is supplied at 3mm thick, whereas the Elite Titan greenhouse range is supplied with 4mm thick toughened glass panels, offering an additional 33% thickness!
