Winter Care & Maintenance
Important notes for various situations
Our structures are designed in a gothic shape with a slippery cover to be lightweight and snow resistant. This encourages the snow to slide off quickly. This is not an industrial high snow load building….
Weather Cautions
These buildings are not industrial grade shelters and, as such, some caution must be exercised under some winter storm conditions….
Winter Storm & Your Structures
Many areas have been hit with freezing rain today and even though it has generally not been enough to warrant concern for the structures, it is a good time to recap some common things when dealing with ice on buildings….
Putting up Structures after the Snowfall
There always seems to be so much pressure and panic at this time to get a building before winter. The only thing that is important to get done sooner then later is the foundation work. There will be lots of decent weather days between now and Christmas to get the job done….
Retightening a Loose Structure Cover
Re-tightening a cover does not have to be done in one day. Taking a short cut will leave you with more wrinkles. Areas with wrinkles will flutter more and cause stress points.
This will also cause the cover to deteriorate quicker……
Temporary Fix for a Loose Cover
There are a number of instances where a cover will need to be installed in less than ideal conditions. This can be either be on a windy day or in the cold (-10C or worse) and the job simply can not wait.
Cold Weather Poly Install
If you were one of the many people who, last fall, were faced with putting the cover on in less than ideal weather, you will be looking at significant wrinkles once the weather starts to warm up.
You will need to tighten the cover to prevent premature wear due to flapping in the wind…..
Season Extension: Hanley Caterpillar Tunnels
The real lure of these buildings is their low cost and simplicity to move. Generally the area is prepared in advance and then the tunnel is moved over the area when the planting is to be done…..

New Initiatives for Gratitude in 2020

In 2020 we are going to take the giving back initiative to an even higher level. We are excited to have you as a part of this program!
 
When you receive your order, there will be a thank you gift for having trusted us with your shelter requirements
 
Also, we will be making a donation for each structure that is purchased. There will be a little card included in your parts package which lets you know what charity your order is supporting. Each month there will be a different charity. Details of these charities with the opportunity of finding out more is on our website and social media channels
 
A key part of our business success and growth is word of mouth referrals. This is something we are so grateful for. In your thank you package, you will also be getting some business cards to assist in spreading the word.
When you do spread the word, please let the recipient know the importance of letting us know who they received the recommendation from so that we may share a thank you with you, when they call us
 
We appreciate you doing this and want to acknowledge you for spreading the word with a token of our gratitude.
 
Another part of our giving back program is where we give significant discounts to groups that combine teaching, food and under privileged. We have had the privilege of sharing in some amazing projects.Check out our website for details on some of these projects
 
It is a natural fit between food & greenhouses ….teaching & schools. If you know of a group that fits those parameters and could use some help have them contact us.
 
We are looking forward to working with you on your structure project and sharing gratitude and positive experiences with you in 2020
