Oh-Oh, So far we have had a brutal winter, my northern friends have had it a bit tougher. I was going to wait till spring to mention this, but it’s January, I know the sun is starting to get higher in the sky, well at least in my heart it is. But, I should not spare you the events that have happened. So, I am going to spill the beans.
We had this ice storm, I had thought we had survived it ok, but when I went out to look, I found the vinyl covering had been torn in several places. At this time, I will have to wait until spring to do repairs. The main part of the roof appears to be in good shape, but will wait until spring for the final decision on that part of the roof.
I have decided I will replace the vinyl with the rigid corrugated roofing panels, I used SunTuff panels, and will purchase enough to do both sides of the building. I will also add cedar boards at the base of the GH to provide better protection at the very base of the greenhouse.
The ends of the greenhouse appear to be in good condition, though I am thinking I should also replace the vinyl on the ends. I think I will wait on the ends of the greenhouse and see how they fair through the summer.
