After receiving the product(s)
In the rare event that your delivery is damaged, all of our suppliers will work to quickly send replacement parts or even a completely new delivery if the need arises. This is entirely up to the discretion of the manufacturer, but your satisfaction as a customer is the top priority of both Greenhouse Emporium and the manufacturers we represent. Please contact us immediately if your delivery is damaged and mark the receipt document that the shipper gives you with the word "DAMAGED" on it to signify into the shipper's system that the delivery was damaged. Parts damaged by the shipping carriers must be reported to us within 10 days of the time the damaged packages arrive.
Missing parts must be reported to us within 5 days of receiving your purchase. Please complete the inventory list before attempting assembly as instructed. It is very important to check the inventory upon arrival of the order, even if you do not plan on constructing the greenhouse right away. This way we can send out parts before you start the assembly process. It happened once that a customer started assembling a greenhouse and then noticed a missing part. Needless to say, the product got damaged while waiting for the missing part because of wind. So, please, be smart and do the inventory check beforehand.
You should ALWAYS do an inventory check RIGHT AFTER receiving the item. This way we can send out missing or damaged pieces in case you need them. We cannot ensure to send out damaged/missing pieces after weeks or months of receiving the product. Some manufacturers may do this, but not all of them.
Assembly & Ground Preparation
You should set up your greenhouse on level ground in order to ensure proper assembly. We recommend gravel, dirt, or peet rock. We DO NOT recommend cement foundations because it holds a lot of heat in the summer and a lot of cold in the winter. Some people installed their greenhouse on a wooden deck or patio, which can be useful for smaller greenhouses. The main concern of this method is the temperature control because a wooden deck has gaps that let in air. Therefore, we do not recommend it for larger greenhouses.
We like to say: If you can assemble IKEA furniture, you can assemble a greenhouse. Each product comes with a manual. There are also videos available for some products. Please, check out the "Features & Benefits" tab of your chosen product or ask us for the links.
This depends on your skill set and the product. We mostly included this information for each product in the "Features & Benefits" section. However, the estimated time can still be longer or shorter depending on your skills and how many helpers you will have.
This depends on each product. Some come with everything included and others don't. Check out the "Features & Benefits" section of the product you are looking at. If this information is not included, feel free to reach out to us via email, phone or chat.
We do not offer this service. A general contractor should be able to set up your greenhouse and prepare the ground. Most of our products have the assembly manual listed under the "Features & Benefits" tab. This may help with the estimated cost for the contractor.
