ClimaPod Greenhouse – Virtue Complete CP-VC
Incorporating an aluminum base, an exceedingly heavy duty, thick aluminum frame, and 6 millimeter polycarbonate panels, this is absolutely the strongest and most durable greenhouse in the ClimaPod greenhouse series!
This stalwart little house for plants can deal with 50 to 60 mph winds or a foot-and-a-half of snow without blinking an eye!
The ClimaPod Virtue Complete P-VC Includes…
- Sliding doors with a magnetic locker
- 2-tier full length shelves
- 4 roof windows
- 4 automatic window openers
- 2 solar-powered thermostatic fans
- 1 Louver
- 10-year warranty – This is the longest warranty I have so far encountered in the greenhouse industry.
The assembly instructions are fully detailed and easy to understand. The drawback is you will need an absolute minimum of 2 to 3 people to put this little gem together. Get more help, if possible.
ClimaPod stresses the importance of having a base for this greenhouse that is 100% level and square.
When buying this greenhouse, add Expert Assembly. Constructing can be a real pain in the derriere…especially when trying to slide in the panels. The additional cost is less than a couple hundred dollars. And, having professionals assemble it will save you a ton of headaches!
Whether you build this greenhouse yourself or have ClimaPod send in their greenhouse specialists to take care of it for you, I highly recommend keeping the screws and nuts a bit loose until everything is completely together. Additionally, when doing a final tightening of the screws, add some Loctite to keep them tight.
Weather stripping will give the roof windows a more complete watertight seal.
U-posts are excellent for adding stability in case of an extremely windy day.
A bead of clear silicone caulk on frame and panel interfaces will add waterproofing and keep panels from experiencing occasional windy day vibration.
There is a good fungicide disinfectant, Physan 20, which also acts as a virucide and algaecide. It is great for cleaning polycarbonate panels!
And, after cleaning the panels, a coat of 303 (30306) Marine UV Protectant will renew the UV protection of the panels and make them look brand new. Remember that it is always important to follow label directions!
As a backup, keeping a few polycarbonate sheets on hand for replacements is fortuitous in case the greenhouse panels get too scratched or algae-covered to be functional.
Plus, here’s a review of an excellent infrared heater to keep your plants toasty warm during the cold winter season!
The reviews have all been glowing for this ClimaPod greenhouse. Some have said that it has even survived winds up to 70 mph! Other folks have praised the quality of the assembly instructions, as well as the strength of the frame and polycarbonate panels…further saying how all parts lined up and fit together perfectly! And, they all love the auto-opening roof windows!
Lastly, customer service is phenomenally courteous and helpful! And, I don’t say that about very many manufacturers.
The ClimaPod Virtue Complete Greenhouse CP-VC is by far the best greenhouse on the market today, according to all the satisfied customers…and the only one with a 10-year warranty! If a company is willing to give you that type of product guarantee, it tells you that they are very confident about their product.
