For years, when people thought of a greenhouse, they pictured a building made of glass.
That isn’t always the case anymore.
Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of using polycarbonate to build your greenhouse:
It’s much more durable than glass
When you build a greenhouse using glass, you run the risk that it will crack, whether due to hail, an errant baseball from a neighborhood ballgame, or vandalism. Polycarbonate is much more durable, and able to withstand breakage and scratching.
It distributes heat more evenly
When you build with polycarbonate panels, you’re ensuring that light rays are spread evenly throughout the building. This helps plants grow faster, and at a uniform rate. And with polycarbonate, you may not need as much shading to protect your plants, as the material is often coated with a UV filter.
They are easier to assemble
Because UNITREX polycarbonate panels are flexible, you have a wider range of options when it comes to the shape of your greenhouse. This gives you more space to work with on your property. You can assemble one within a day, because the process isn’t as delicate as when you build a glass greenhouse.
