How to repair greenhouses

Wooden Greenhouse Repair

Wooden Greenhouses need to be repaired frequently after a period of less than 3 years. The parts commonly prawn to damage in wooden greenhouses are wooden erected poles, roofing timber, polythene cover materials, nails, insect nets and twining materials. Wooden poles sometimes may break or tilt especially during the rainy or stormy season when the soil is not firm.
Wooden greenhouses can be fully or partially repaired depending on the level of damage at hand. Repair involves replacing old wooden poles, fixing new roofing frames, replacing torn insect nets, and repairing holes in torn greenhouse polythene.

Metallic Greenhouse Repair

Metallic greenhouses have very low chances of damage especially when well-constructed with the right materials. Damage in metallic greenhouses normally occurs on greenhouse polythene sheets, corroded wiggle wires, torn shade nets, gutters, and damaged irrigation pipes.
Replacing polythene material depends on the level of damage or holes on the greenhouse cover. Screws are the most critical parts for the stability of the metallic structure.
