There are tons of different types of greenhouses to choose from. Whether you want the rustic charm of an A-frame model or the aesthetic harmony of an atrium design, there are plenty of options for discerning growers.
But not all greenhouses are appropriate for every project. A tunnel greenhouse or mini greenhouse, for example, have their growing limitations. Serious growers may need a structure with more substance than a lightweight garden greenhouse with a poly film covering.
Heavy-duty greenhouses are a great choice for indoor farmers interested in creating a controlled environment agriculture facility for long-term use. These durable structures can stand up to intense weather conditions and are better suited for the installation of climate, irrigation, and lighting systems than their lightweight cousins.
So, why should you invest in a heavy-duty greenhouse?
Choosing the Best Heavy Duty Greenhouse
While lightweight greenhouses from hobby greenhouse kits are perfect for hobbyist growers to get started with indoor growing, commercial growers need a more reliable kind of greenhouse structure to satisfy their cultivation needs.
The good news is that there are many types of heavy-duty greenhouses available for construction. Heavy-duty greenhouses come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and the right choice depends on the intended crops, available space, and overall budget.
Some popular types of heavy-duty greenhouses include:

Heavy Duty Greenhouses Advantages
A heavy-duty greenhouse gives growing operations the best chance for higher quality crops harvested at higher yields. There are several distinct advantages to building a greenhouse including:
First, a well-constructed green house will be able to tolerate extreme weather and climate far better than those constructed from greenhouse kits. A sturdy frame of galvanized steel or aluminum ensures that the structure will remain stable and strong. Rain, snow, and wind won’t compromise the structural integrity of the greenhouse. A heavy-duty greenhouse will protect plants from harsh weather and harmful UV rays at any time of the year.
An aluminum, wood, or steel frame greenhouse will simply last longer than a lightweight construction. Lightweight polyethylene greenhouse cover material and PVC pipes are more susceptible to damage than other framing and covering materials. And a greenhouse from a kit with flimsy roll-up windows and a zipper door can’t compare to the longevity of a sturdy greenhouse with a hinged or sliding door and glass windows.
Finally, heavy duty greenhouses are much better suited for heating, lighting, irrigation, and fertilization systems. Growing technology can be seamlessly integrated into the structure with minimal obstruction. This results in a true controlled environment agriculture greenhouse where virtually all growing conditions can be precisely regulated.

How do you make a permanent greenhouse?
To build a permanent greenhouse, it’s best to enlist the help of a professional greenhouse construction company like Prospiant. Since precise construction is needed to ensure the health of crops, building a permanent greenhouse by yourself isn’t recommended.
