Purchasing a greenhouse from us
Some of our customers are very experienced gardeners looking to replace an existing greenhouse that they have used and loved for many decades, in many cases without wanting to disturb the original brick base.
Others are new to gardening and looking to buy their first greenhouse and have a blank canvas. In this case we can advise on the best type of base to have installed and provide all the necessary drawings.
In either case, we have thirty years worth of experience to draw on to help make the process of designing and purchasing a greenhouse from us as smooth as possible, even if you have failed to find another company willing to adapt to your own particular requirements.
What we need to know in order to give you a quotation...
- The overall length, width, and in the case of a lean-to, also the height of the greenhouse.
- Is the greenhouse for a domestic or commercial application?
- Are you replacing an existing greenhouse on the original base or building a new greenhouse and base from scratch?
- Will it be free-standing, or mounted against a wall?
- Will it be glazed to ground level or designed to sit on a dwarf wall?
- Would you like the frame to be powder coated in your choice of colour, or supplied in plain aluminium?
- Is the site for your greenhouse exposed or sheltered?
- Is the greenhouse mainly functional, with standard 2ft wide glass or a period feature of the garden, perhaps in a Victorian style with a steep roof pitch, a decorative ridge and narrow glazing?
- How many doors do you need and will these be in the gable ends or in the sides/front of the greenhouse?
- Do you require side ventilation in addition to the roof ventilation that we provide as standard?
- What extra fixtures and fittings would you like to consider? These can include integral or freestanding staging, high-level shelving, decorative finials and cresting, lockable doors and many other features.
Thanks again for all of the care and attention you gave to the design, manufacture and installation of the beautiful greenhouse which now sits in our garden. We are delighted with it and are looking forward to enjoying using it for many years to come.
First-class attention to detail
I have never really thanked you and all your team for the splendid new greenhouse at Kiplin. We were convinced that a new one was needed and your quotation was extremely competitive. Your attention to detail was first class and the liaison you had with both ourselves and builders meant that the whole project went extremely smoothly. Thank you for all the time you put in coming up to see us on several occasions, and of course for all the lads who did a really first class job when they came on site.
It exceeds my expectations
I really must say a large thank you for what you have done. It exceeds my expectations and you have given me a building of the highest quality that will last for years and allow me to continue to grow, expand and manage my collection of cacti and succulents.
