Monticello 8 ft. X 12 ft. Aluminum Greenhouse

Model # MONT-12-AL|Store SKU # 1001161889

Overview

Model # MONT-12-AL Store SKU # 1001161889

Not all greenhouses are built the same and the Monticello line of greenhouses by Riverstone Industries proves this to be true. Constructed from the highest quality extruded aluminum (US grade) and coated as not to discolour over the years (containing 0.0% lead), our greenhouse uses on average more than 40 lbs. more aluminum than the average imported greenhouse. Why is this important? The weaker the framework the less snow the greenhouse can hold in the winter time before collapsing and the easier it is to get damaged by the wind. While most hobby greenhouses use less expensive thinner walls and roofing materials, the Monticello uses professional grade 8mm twin wall polycarbonate. This acts as a double pain window keeping cooler air in during warm months and insulating the greenhouse from cold air in the wintertime; making the Monticello more efficient to grow in for a longer period of time and adds to the efficiency of growing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Excellent Company We couldn't be more happy with this product. While the instructions to build the unit need some proofreading the end product is exactly what we wanted. Strong, durable, heavy duty uv siding and easy to build. There were some hiccups in the directions but Dave (the owner) was always available to guild us through the issue. As a matter of fact, Dave and Riverside are the best company I have ever worked with, and I'm really old so that's a lot of companies. I purchased the greenhouse with the premium package which included the 12 foot bench on the side. I am beginning hydroponics and while the bench worked nice I took it out to build a custom hydroponics system. A nice thing about the bench is it can be used in 2 foot increments so it's not an all or none proposition. All in all it was a great purchase which has given my wife and I a lot of nice hours working outside and growing some vegetables. I would absolutely purchase a Riverside product again.

Tolerances are very tight and there is no wiggle room. However, quality control in manufacture lacks precision. Many wall studs/roof rafters were long by as much as 3/8". Several twin wall panels were not cut squarely. Roof peak twin wall panels required significant trimming. There are no written directions! Assembly manual is line drawings only and some difficult to interpret. Measure, square and trim to specification everything before attempting assembly. The finished product is strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Product & Customer Service First of all, let us say what a great greenhouse this is. And, just as important as the quality of the Monticello Greenhouse is their exceptional customer service. We bought an 8x12 greenhouse in April 2012. When it arrived we discovered the doors had been damaged in shipping. We reported this to Riverstone Mfg and a few days later, we had new doors. We did experience some alignment problems during assembly. Riverstone’s engineer contacted us and through his help discovered that 3 twin-wall panels (corners slightly crushed during shipping) were the cause of this problem. Riverstone immediately sent out replacement panels and a few days later we were back in business. The greenhouse then went together smoothly. We were and are still very impressed with their Customer Service. The greenhouse is easy to assemble and instructions are some of the best we have run across. We don’t think the greenhouse can be assembled in 4-5 hrs as seen on YouTube, but with two people can easily be assembled in one day. The completed greenhouse is rock solid – no rattling of the twin wall panels & all the metal parts are of heavy-duty construction. While the interior shade cloth is an accessory, it is well worth the money and is a great & convenient addition. We decided to buy this greenhouse after a great deal of research & were impressed by the answers to our questions we received from Riverstone. We have not been disappointed. While there are cheaper greenhouses on the market, from what we have seen, heard, and read from reviews; none of them match Riverstone’s quality and ease of assembly. As a side note we do not write reviews, but felt this product was worth our time. We are budget-minded shoppers and don’t part with our money easily. As the old saying goes, “You get what you pay for”, we felt it was worth it, and as a plus is made in the USA.

How do the doors latch or lock since they are sliding doors?

Asked by: suzieq
The Monticello 8X12 kit has hinged doors. Make sure you measure all structural members and square up twinwall panels before assembly.
