Alton greenhouses include MORE as standard - Only Alton Cedar greenhouse have these features:
Concrete base kerbs
Only Alton greenhouses have the unique Concrete kerb system. This provides you with the advantage of easy installation, a very strong and firm foundation, The wood is kept not only off the floor but, is in fact, a full 5" off the floor - this helps prevent rot which can be caused by build up of leaves or soil near to the bottom of the greenhouse. There is also no step at the door - allowing easy access for wheelbrrow (and you!)
When comparing an Alton greenhouse to other makes, remember your guttering! most Alton greenhouses INCLUDE a full set of guttering and downpipes for both sides. Other makes of greenhouse charge as much as £200-£400 for a set of guttering!
Only Alton Amateur and Traditional model greenhouses include our unique 'Vent-access' sliding side vents. These are fantastic for ventilation as they provide it right at the bottom of the greenhouse (exactly where you need cool, fresh air to come in) We provide these in generous numbers (for example and 8x10 model has four included) What's more, you can slide these open from the outside - a useful feature when crops of tomatoes or greenhouse benching are in the way. Other greenhouse manufacturers don't tend to offer vent access (they are quite difficult to make) but instead offer louvres as extras - these can cost as much as £140 - so to produce the same level of ventilation as the four Vent-access (which come included on an 8x10 Alton) you could spend as much as £560 on four louvres!
