Ask any Ottawa gardener – the weather pattens from year-over-year are terribly unpredictable. While grow lamps have long been popular in the region, the escalating costs for utilities is causing some gardeners to seek out alternative solutions.
Green Thumbs Approved!
Greenhouse windows protrude outwards from a home, thereby creating a mini-greenhouse that benefits from natural light. Glass shelves are added to create the perfect spot to start seedlings, to grow herbs year-round or to give high-maintenance plants a sunny spot even in the dead of winter.
Typically installed on the sunny side of a home, greenhouse windows (sometimes called mini-solariums) are engineered to be energy efficient. Here at BestCan, our crews install the popular VinylBilt Greenhouse Window. The VinylBilt model includes the following features:
- Aluminum Reinforced Framing Hinged roof
- Full Screen
- Insulated Seat
- 16 “ Projection
- Heavy-duty Scissor-action Roof Hardware
The VinylBilt Greenhouse Window is available in a variety of styles, including an option for an awing-top that includes easy access with a crank and pole. This upgraded version allows the green thumb gardener to improve airflow in the summer months, when humidity can be higher and a cool breeze is welcomed.
Whether you replace an existing window, or to add space to your home, your Greenhouse Window or Mini-Solarium will enhance the beauty and the value of your home.
