Our verdict on the Shelter Logic 8′ x 8′ Peak Style Portable Greenhouse

The Shelter Logic 8′ x 8′ Peak Style Portable Greenhouse comes with an apex style roof, holds a 1 Years guarantee, and fit with roll ups.

Base material: metal

Our experts say this has 1 stand out feature. A stand out feature is something found on over 70% of the top 10% of products in a particular category or is an exceptionally good feature as rated by our panel of experts.

1. The metal cladding used on this greenhouse is one the best available for greenhouses rated by our experts.

Below is a brief overview of how some of the key points of this greenhouse fairs across the market.

Treatment/Guarantee

The treated treatment process used here is one of the best types of treatment out of 4 [1] types we’ve identified on same-size greenhouses that you’ll see getting used on 3% [2] (24 of 787) of all greenhouses analysed, as well as being used on 1% [3] (1 of 78) of the top 10% of greenhouses. While you’ll find that the Expert Score of this greenhouse is 5 points lower than the average for treated 7′ x 7’s (72 vs the average of 77 [4]), you can be sure it’s not due to the treatment as this one of the highest scoring treatments found on 7′ x 7′ greenhouses. You’ll also find the treated treatment showing up on 3% of 7′ x 7′ greenhouses (2 in total).

On a metal greenhouse, the guarantee that the manufacturer offers is usually a very good indicator of the quality of the building. The longer the guarantee the more the manufacturer believes in the quality of the building they have produced. Typically we see manufacturer guarantees for metal Greenhouses ranging from zero right up to a 15 years guarantee.

This metal greenhouse comes with a 1 years guarantee. Most metal greenhouse come with a 5 years guarantee (52.56% of them) [5].

For this particular brand (Shelter Logic) they offer 6 [6] different types of guarantees on their metal greenhouses, with the 1 years guarantee on this being the only they offer. The 1 years guarantee is found on 100.00% of Shelter Logic metal greenhouses [7]. It is great that this greenhouse was given one of the highest guarantees offered by the brand, and this shows the manufacturer has a lot of faith in the overall quality of this part of their product range.

When looking at comparable 7′ x 7′ metal greenhouses (we found 74 of them) the most popular guarantee length offered by manufacturers was 10 years [8]. 45.95% came with a missing guarantee, 18.92% came with a 10 year guarantee, 13.51% came with a 5 year guarantee, 10.81% came with a 12 year guarantee, 6.76% came with a 15 year guarantee, 2.70% came with a 1 year guarantee and 1.35% came with a 7 year guarantee.

While you’ll find that the Expert Score of this greenhouse is 8 points lower than the average for metal clad 7′ x 7’s (72 vs the average of 80) [12], you can be sure it’s not due to the cladding as this one of the highest scoring materials found on 7′ x 7′ greenhouses.

If you are looking for the best value or highest expert scoring greenhouses out of the 34 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 £253 with this DEUBA Base Greenhouse Garden Shed 190x190cm 6x6ft M2: 190x190cm. It is priced at £36, this is 704% less than this and has an Expert Score of 87, 15 points higher than the Shelter Logic 8′ x 8′ Peak Style Portable 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 3 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.
