PROS AND CONS OF RIVERSTONE MONT GREENHOUSES

Riverstone MONT Greenhouse Pros

  • DURABLE - The MONT Greenhouse is made of high quality material.  The frame is constructed with high grade US extruded aluminum.  On average, their greenhouses are 40 pounds heavier than the competitors'.  The panels are 8mm twin wall polycarbonate that is virtually unbreakable.
  • STURDY - The MONT Greenhouse has good snow and wind ratings if properly installed and anchored.
    Snow load: 24 lbs / sq ft
    Wind rate: 65 mph
  • GOOD INSULATION - The MONT Greenhouses are outfitted with the commercial grade 8mm twin wall polycarbonate.  So your plants and your utility bills are well protected during the cold seasons.  
  • NO MAINTENANCE - The frame is electrostatically painted black and contains no lead.  No repainting is needed.
  • ACCESSIBILITY - The MONT Greenhouses are equipped with a 6x4 ft entrance with a hinged double French door that provides easy access.  It's especially handy when you need to move things in and out with a wheelbarrow or potting cart.
  • SPACIOUS HEADROOM - The peak height of the MONT greenhouses is 7'6" to accommodate even the tallest gardeners and taller plants.  It also helps to dissipate heat.
  • EXTENDABILITY - The MONT Greenhouses are designed in a way that you can add a 4 ft extension to increase the space when you need it.
  • GOOD MANUFACTURER SUPPORT - Riverstone Industries is standing by to answer any questions you may have and to provide any support you need during the greenhouse installation.
  • HIGH VALUE - The MONT Greenhouses are reasonably priced for their quality.
  • LONG WARRANTY - The 10 and 15 year limited warranty are a bold guarantee of their quality.

Riverstone MONT Greenhouse Cons

  • LIMITED STYLE - The MONT Greenhouses are designed in a style that's classic and has a clean line.  If you want something fancier or of a different shape, you will need to look at other brands.
  • NO TEMPERED GLASS - If you want a glass greenhouse, the MONT Greenhouses are not for you.  They don't offer tempered glass as an alternative glazing.
  • INSTALLATION TIME - It can take several days to complete the installation depending on the size of the greenhouse, your skill level, and the number of people involved.
