What are the features of a Dunster House Greenhouse?

If you're going to invest in a greenhouse then you want it to stand the test of time and see you through as many seasons as possible. You also want it to be able to withstand the ever-changing elements. We've made sure that all of our greenhouses do just that.

Iris Wooden Greenhouse
 

Our Rose, Lavender, Iris and Lilac Greenhouse features a wood plastic composite panel (WPC) on the back wall. Our Albert Victorian Greenhouse has WPC all around the lower part of the walls, to ensure a hard-wearing surface down where you might store heavy or sharp-edged items. This strong, durable material is not only extremely resistant to excessive temperatures but requires very little maintenance to maintain its high-quality finish. WPC will not corrode and is highly resistant to rot and fungal decay, much like our pressure treated timber.

Albert Victorian Greenhouse features WPC lower panels and pressure treated exposed wooden timbers

All of the timber used in our greenhouses is pre-cut pressure treated timber. This means the ends of the timber are also pressure treated as the process occurs after the timber has been cut to size. Due to the pressure treatment, we can offer a 10-year guarantee against rot and insect infestation.

 

We use full panes of 4mm toughened glass in our greenhouses. This is stronger than the industry standards of 3mm horticultural glass and polycarbonate. It's also much better for anything growing in your greenhouse as it will not go cloudy over time, which would reduce the amount of natural light able to enter your greenhouse. It's also much better for you as you don't have to worry about the odd stray football coming across the fence and breaking a window.

 

 

All of our glass is held in place with beads, strips of wood that are nailed into the frame to secure the glass. So if you ever need to change a pane of glass, it's an easy task to complete. Some competitors design glass without beading which require you to take off the greenhouse roof and dismantle part of the wall to replace a pane of glass.

 

 

At 2.0m high there's lots of timber and glass going into making our greenhouses, so it's important we provide you with high-quality materials that strengthen the structure. The height of the greenhouses provides high internal eaves, typically higher than others, so there's more room for your plants to grow. For the taller gardener the top of our windows run in line with our tall doors, so you won't walk in and then hit your head on the roof!
