A 4.0mm thick roof material was used on this greenhouse which is the worst thickness used for a roofing material and is the only thickness identified on same-size greenhouses [3]. It’s used on 2% of all greenhouses and 9% of the top 10% of greenhouses. 3% of 6′ x 6′ greenhouses (2 in total) use a 4.0mm thick roof material, with this product having an Expert Score 5% higher than average.

If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring greenhouses out of the 71 with comparable specifications the following might be of interest.

Best value – If you are looking for something comparable that costs less, then you could save £944 with this vidaXL Greenhouse 4.5m² 300x150x200 cm White. It is priced at £75, this is 1259% less than this and has an Expert Score of 60, 25 points less than the 6’x6′ Palram Canopia Rion White Lean to Greenhouse.

Highest Expert Score – With an Expert Score of 87 vs 85 for this product, the Palram Canopia 6′ x 6′ Mythos Silver Polycarbonate Greenhouse is the best 6′ x 6′ greenhouse with comparable specifications, and is priced at £349, that’s £670 less than the 6’x6′ Palram Canopia Rion White Lean to Greenhouse.

High Wind Area – If you live in a particularly exposed or high wind area then having a greenhouse with a thicker cladding and higher than average frame thickness can be preferable. We found at least 2 greenhouses that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Coastal Consideration – If you live in a particularly wet or harsher environment such as by the coast then you might want to consider something with a more robust pressure treatment or something made from metal or plastic, both materials that are particularly suited to such harsh environments. We’ve found at least 3 greenhouses that have a combination of features that can make them more suited to higher wind areas.

Public-Facing – Extra security measures might be more of a concern if you’re placing your building in an area that is more public-facing than a garden. Features such as security windows or even having no windows at all, and the ability to lock all opening doors are usually much more important when you have something that is more public-facing. We found at least 3 greenhouses that have options that you might find a better fit if this is a concern you have.

More Child Friendly – If you have children and you are looking for something that has that little extra in terms of durability then tougher glazing options might be a better option. Here we have at least 3 other options that will fill those needs.

1. Galvanised: Galvanising steel or Zinc Galvanised steel as it is sometimes called refers to the process where steel is immersed into molten zinc. This is where a series of zinc-iron alloy forms a series layers via a metallurgical reaction between the iron and zinc, providing a robust coating which is an integral part of the steel.

Galvanised steel is among the most corrosion resistant due to its sacrificial protection and self-repairing properties. According to the Galvanizers Association they say “Hot dip galvanising offers coverage both externally and internally within hollow sections, it self-repairs when damaged, sacrifices itself to protect the base metal, is environmentally sustainable, has good impact and abrasion-resistance and a maintenance-free life of 50 years or more. Galvanised steel is widely used in applications where corrosion protection is needed and can be identified by the crystallised pattern on the surface (often called a ‘spangle’).” 

2. Roof material types identified: polycarbonate 

3. Roof thickness types identified: 4mm 

4. Glazing material types identified: acrylic, horticultural glass, toughened glass
