Looking for Colorado Polycarbonate Panels?
Polycarbonate structural panels or sheets are a great replacement for glass and acrylic when you need a transparent or translucent appearance. Let’s walk through the many reasons polycarbonate is the best choice for your greenhouse, sunroom, pergola, or deck cover.
Why Build a Greenhouse?
Creating food self-sufficiency has become more popular in recent years as prices for vegetables and other food essentials continue to rise. One way to become more self-efficient is to grow your own food by building a polycarbonate greenhouse.
Polycarbonate panel sheets have become a widespread and popular way to glaze a greenhouse structure. Now the question is, do you want to build it yourself using a greenhouse kit, or would you rather have someone build it for you? GREENHOUSES DEL SOL, INC. can build you any type of greenhouse you need.
How to Pick a Greenhouse Kit
For the average homeowner, glass has generally been a cost-prohibitive material with which to build a greenhouse. However, with the advent of low-cost aluminum, greenhouse kits, and easy-to-find polycarbonate sheets, greenhouse construction is easier. There are many companies selling greenhouse kits and making the right choice can often be difficult.
Greenhouse structures should be built with the climate in your area in mind. Some greenhouse kits will not hold up in higher altitudes or in unusually frigid areas. Make sure your kit has a snow and wind load rating. Some areas require specific building standards and when applying for a permit you must show a design and stamped engineering that supports local building codes.
If no permit is required, then try to use your best judgment according to your local area. You can find this information by calling your local building department. Then try to match up your building specifications with a manufacturer that offers kits or custom designs that will meet your criteria.
