Very easy. Grandio designed and perfected the assembly process with you in mind. Your Greenhouse comes with the tools and a step-by-step assembly manual and video and if you have any problems you can call Grandio customer support at 1-866-448-8231.
Is a building permit required?
You may not need a permit for your Grandio, but it is always a good idea check before you get started. We recommend you check local ordinances and requirements before setting up your greenhouse.
Is it strong enough for windy or heavy snow locations?
Definitely. Grandio's are all designed to withstand the most hostile environments. We've added roof and eave supports to increase the strength and durability of the greenhouse frame. Just follow the included directions for securing your greenhouse and you'll enjoy many years of growing with your Grandio.
I live in the hot southwest will Grandio Greenhouses work for me?
For people who live in high-temperature areas of the country like Arizona, Texas, California, Nevada, or New Mexico we recommend our aluminum shade net. The aluminum shade net reflects the sun on the hottest days to help your greenhouse keep it's cool.
How do the automatic roof vent openers work?
The opener has a metal cylinder containing a mineral which expands when heated. This pushes a piston that opens the vent. As the temperature cools, the mineral shrinks and a spring closes the vent and resets the piston. The opening and closing of the vent is gradual allowing just the right amount of air flow for cooling. No electricity needed!
How large is the roof vent opening?
The vent opening is 18-3/4" width by 22-3/4” length.
What is the difference in polycarbonate thicknesses?
Polycarbonate is available in several different thicknesses and normally comes in single, double, and triple walled sheets that can vary in thickness from 1mm to 10mm. A good rule to remember is that the thicker the panel the better insulation you'll have for your greenhouse.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I need an automatic opener, do you sell these separately, also shelving? what's shipping time more or less?
Yes you can order this seprately and the shipping is the same and free as always. You can find the accessories HERE
We have winds that sometimes hit over 60 mph, how well will this structure withstand these types of winds. Often when storms are coming over the Sierras from California we can get gusts higher than 60 mph.
It is recommended with those kinds of winds to get the base and the frame to base brackets.
What does basic with base mean? Can it set on grass?
Yes , Just choose the earth anchor option or call us at 732 806 7959
How wide is the door opening?
Hi - if we want this raised, can we make a frame out of 4 x 4's on the ground, not put the feet on the frame and attach the frame to the 4x4's? Thank you.
You can raise it by putting it on a wood frame. Just make sure the frame is well anchored. Also please note that the door wiil not reach the ground.
Can I buy the Grandio Element 6 X 8 Basic green house kit? You sell the same greenhouse with the premium add ons, why can't I buy the basic without the add ons and add on what I need, not the whole premium kit?
Yes sure all of the accesoris are available on their own and can be purchased indivisualy.
1. Can it accommodate a heater or some sort of heating system for low temperature weather? 2. Can it handle snowfall and if so,how much? 3. Can it be dissembled in spring and assembled again annually in mid-autumn?
2.Yes it is recomended to use the Snow load kit
3 It can but it is lot of work and it is not built to be taken apart.
Is this unit fit for the Texas (sometimes HARSH winter Ice Storms or Hail?) climate. Thanks, Tim
Yes, it is. The snow load kit is recommended
Do I need a heater in the winter.
It is recommended to use a heater in cold climates.
If we want the Premium but also want to anchor to the ground, sonwhat do we order? It's confusing. Do we need the frame to base brackets? Do they come with the Premium?
You would choose premium for the kit option and earth for the anchor option. The premium kit comes with 4 frame to base brackets they are not needed but it does add to the overall sturdiness of the greenhouse.
We are looking at buying the 6'x12'. Where can I get a wooden base for the greenhouse.
Sorry, we do not supply the base. Feel free to call us and discuss your anchor options.
Thought at one time when I looked at the Grandio Element greenhouse you could get a kit to reinforce the roof for snow in the winter. Is this still offered?
Yes that is the Snow load kit Please contact us for a discount when you purchase the snow load kit with your greenhouse.
How heavy is this unit, and I assume it comes unassembled. Does it come in boxes that could fit through most doorways? Is it moderately easy to assemble? Please advise
The 6x4 comes in 2 boxws one is 64"x25"x7" and ways 44lbs The other is 57lbs and 77"x12"x5" the larger ones have more boxes of similar sizes. and it is easy for someone who is handy. I would suggest taking a look at the manual in the links tab.
Can the GRANDIO ELEMENT 6 FOOT ALL YEAR GREENHOUSE KIT be installed on a paver patio?
Yes it can
