Review the written instructions and packing list ahead of time
Before starting the greenhouse installation, review the written instructions and packing list. They are filled with great tips and best practices that will help streamline your build. When you receive the instructions, don’t panic. The instructions are written as a large book that includes ALL glazing types. Follow the color-coded sections that pertain to your greenhouse only.
Our sales team members will email you the final order with confirmed exterior dimensions, a layout drawing showing all accessories discussed, as well as your drop door information. Our Sales Coordinator will be in touch when the greenhouse goes into production to make sure we have all the information correct. Our Sales Coordinator will then reach out to confirm your shipment date and to answer any questions to ensure you are ready to receive your greenhouse.
The freight delivery driver will expect that you will have the manpower to offload the wooden crates your greenhouse arrives in. If you have a glass greenhouse, ensure that a forklift is arranged ahead of time with your Greenhouse Expert.
Your wooden crates and their corresponding numbers are indicated in your packing list that will be emailed to you ahead of delivery by our Logistics Coordinator. Look for the wooden crate that says, “Packing List Inside” There will be a Robertson screwdriver provided as well as some other important pieces. The written instructions will be inside the crate with your door(s).
Important: The greenhouse is organized into bundles of materials that will be labelled with a sticker. These bundles should not be taken apart until you are ready for the component. Lay out all the bundles, parts, and pieces until everything is visible. Polycarbonate panels have a protective blue film on the exterior and clear or white on the interior. Keep track by placing a mark on the exterior as it has UV protectant. Until it is time to install do not put your polycarbonate in the sun because the blue film will heat up and it will be difficult to remove.
