Powder Coating Fees and Considerations

Powder-coating is an attractive option for your greenhouse, but there are a few things you should know about before you decide.  One word of caution about powder-coating:  it is not a good choice for seaside properties, as wind-born salt can corrode the finish within a few years.  If you are near the ocean, the greenhouse is best situated on the leeward side of the house, out of prevailing winds.

If you are planning to do your own installation, having a greenhouse powder-coated can complicate matters somewhat. When a greenhouse comes out of the box from the Halls factory, the parts are neatly bundled for each step in the installation process and the individual pieces are marked with a part number.   After powder coating, so it is easier for you to assemble, we will re-pack the following pieces into bundles for you: door(s), vents, door gable end, non-door gable end. Each piece has a part number on a tag and the same number is also stamped into the aluminum. Powder-coating will obscure the part number tags but in most cases you will see be able to see the stamped part number. If it’s too faint to read, it’s not that difficult to figure out which part goes where, but it will involve getting acquainted with the parts list in the manual.  The parts list has the length, in millimeters, of each component and a small drawing of what the part looks like in profile (when you are looking at it from the end).  By measuring the pieces, as well as checking their profiles, you will be able to figure out where each piece goes.
