Lightweight yet very strong

"I've had the 8' wide Snap & Grow Greenhouse for years in my backyard in Minnesota. It is a lightweight greenhouse yet very strong. It has been through high winds and heavy winter snows and has not budged. It is anchored into a wood 4x4 framed foundation. It has great head room for my larger plants and I love it. A must have for the serious gardener."

WARNING - don't buy poly-tex

"This is the first time I have every rated a product, but felt people thinking about purchasing this item needed to know what I am still going through with this greenhouse. WARNING don't buy this greenhouse unless you want constant frustration. As I started putting it together I found the it came with broken pieces, took forever to get the replacement pieces from the manufacturer, and then once you get those and proceed to try to put it together again, you find more missing or broken pieces. The cycle repeats it self until, while waiting for the final replacement piece to arrive, it collapses in a breeze breaking 75% of the pieces. The wind we had was no where near 50 mph that it is supposed to withstand, in fact a large, but not heavy, ceramic Great Dane nearby was still standing and no tree limbs (even small ones) were blown out of the trees around the greenhouse. This is a very flimsy product. Purchased on 11-14-2012, collapsed 01-31-2013. So far, as of today 08-21-2013, I am still fighting. 5 year waranty - HAHAHA. If I could rate it with 0 stars I would. Note: I did not buy from wayfair."

Better than expected

"When we opened the box we figured we would have problems. Once we got all the items sorted and inventoried we had a couple of missing parts but it did not look like it would stop us from starting assembly. A phone call fixed that, parts were shipped. We started wth three of us about 10 in the morning and by noon had much of the frame up. After lunch we started on the windows. The book is fair but could use a little more explaintion on some of the parts. By two we thought we were pretty well done and were a little worried about how secure the unit would be in the wind THEN we started installing he metal support brackets. The brackets took some time but we realized quickly that they were the key to the stability of the unit. by about 4:30 we were done. We could build another much shorter time now that we know how things fit together. GOOD UNIT, GOOD SERVICE! We are very happy wiht the finished product!"

A really well designed and manufactured product

,

"This is a great greenhouse with lots of options to customize it for your use. The instructions, which are on-line and that you can review before you buy, state that it takes two people half a day to assemble. Which is probably true if you have assembled one before.
I was able to assemble the greenhouse by myself in two half days. There is only one step where having another set of hands is really needed and you can get around that without too much trouble.
There are two things I would change about this product. First I would put the weather stripping in a separate bag so it wouldn't stick to some parts and become worthless. Second, I'd look for another supplier for the small bolts and nuts used to put the hinges on the doors. These bolts are the only cheesey components and you have to really, really careful with them. Fortunately, they ship extras of all the fasteners so after I sheared the first bolt, I was able to continue with caution. I probably should have just riveted the hinges but I was being stubborn and wanted to see if all the bolts were as bad as the first one. They were.
Every other part of this greenhouse exceeded my expectations for quality.
This greenhouse looks nice, works nice and assembled nice. A quality item that I'm glad Northern sells.
