Winter Storms and Maintenance 

With the upcoming storms in both Ontario and the east coast forecasted, we wanted to remind everyone: it’s okay, and even preferred that the buildings have some snow around them. 

This prevents the wind from getting under them and it also means that the height above the ground is less. This significantly decreases the aerodynamic lift.

As we’ve stated in our winter care articles and in the installation guide, there are things you can do to prepare your building to withstand the storms as best as possible. Taking extra steps during the ‘worst case scenario’ situations can often make all the difference and help your building stay standing.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about any of these situations. Good luck and stay warm! 

Featured Product: Igloo Round Structures

We have a unique structure that we have started offering more often. It is a round dome structure, with our standard hoops around a circular ridge piece. We have taken to calling this our “Canadian Igloo” Structure. Plastic is put on in separate pieces so it’s not for the new greenhouse assembler. We have them being used for everything from seminar areas to storage, whatever you would like a unique application for!

Please see our Igloo Round Application Page for more info, and call for your custom quote and with any additional questions you may have.
