About the frame
The Portico Series of greenhouses are made from Western Red Cedar, which is a stable and long-lasting wood often used in harsh climates where strength is a necessity. When red cedar absorbs moisture, its naturally occurring preservatives are triggered and the moisture is quickly released into the air, helping to give red cedar its longevity. All of the red cedar used for these greenhouses comes from certified or sustainable forests.
Additional Exterior Information
The Portico greenhouses are covered in tempered safety glass and weather protected with powder-coated aluminum features. The aluminum gutters and downspouts are designed for easy compatibility with rain barrels and water tanks. The cedar roof is protected by hand-turned cedar caps and neoprene gaskets for additional weather protection. The steep-pitched roof helps prevent snow buildup, while an automated heat-sensitive ventilation system runs the length of the greenhouse, releasing heat at the most advantageous point.
Each greenhouse sits on its own aluminum plinth, which raises the greenhouse off the ground and provides a stronger fixing point for the foundation.
