If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring greenhouses out of the 29 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 £488 with this Relaxdays Walk-In Tomato Greenhouse, Door, Balcony & Garden, Plug-In System, Grow Tent, HWD: 200x155x155 cm, Green. It is priced at £82, this is 596% less than this and has an Expert Score of 72, 15 points less than the 8’x4′ Palram Canopia Hybrid Silver Lean To Wall Walk In 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.

Marlborough Greenhouses 4′ x 8′ Wooden Greenhouse with 4 windows

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. Polycarbonate: Is one of the toughest plastics available. The excellent toughness and thermal stability make Polycarbonate one of the most widely used thermoplastics. This durability makes this ideal for garden equipment and extremely durable plastic garden structure. Polycarbonate is also used for things such as riot shields, vandal proof glazing, safety helmets and headlamp lenses.

According to data from the British Plastics Fedaration the physical properties of Polycarbonate are that it is very good when exposed to high heat with a maximum continuous use temperature of 125 °C. This is coupled with the outstanding Notched Impact Strength data of 60 – 80 Kj/m². 

3. Roof material types identified: polycarbonate, toughened glass 

4. Glazing material types identified: polycarbonate, toughened glass
