Rooftop greenhouses are a great option for home or business owners that want to maximize their footprint.
Due to our high wind and snow load rating, our greenhouses are the perfect choice for this application. Whether it’s a school, a garage or a rooftop deck, our greenhouses can be designed to match any existing foundational environment and look like they were part of the original build!
When selecting a site for your foundation, choose a flat, level surface where your greenhouse can be easily installed, stable and secure. Locate your greenhouse close to power and water, while also considering water drainage and easy access. Try to locate the greenhouse so that 6 hours of sunlight is available during winter months.

The rules for the permit process depends on your municipality but generally speaking, a structure less than 120 square feet that is not considered permanent does not require a permit. We are able to provide engineered shop drawings to secure the required permits, if necessary. For more information, please visit https://info.bcgreenhouses.com/en-ca/greenhousepermit
It's the best way to get started on the journey to your new greenhouse!
