BC Greenhouse Builders

BC Greenhouse Builders Ltd. was incorporated in 1951. Henry Heinen, employed with the company since 1959, purchased the company in 1972 with his wife Greta. With Henry’s expertise in design and manufacturing, he endeavoured to create the highest quality greenhouses called Cross Country Greenhouses. Henry and Greta’s son Rick now leads the company into new markets with innovative designs while continuing the legacy of a quality made product.

Why buy a greenhouse kit?

With over 70 years of experience and conversations with thousands of customers over the years, if you live in a colder climate or will ever think about moving, a greenhouse kit is the way to go.  Did you know you can easily disassemble our greenhouses and move them to a new location?  Not so easy to do with a homemade greenhouse.  In fact, many of our customers choose to add an extension when they move because they have more space!

What is a Greenhouse Door Drop?

If you have dealt with BC Greenhouses in the past, you might have been asked about your door drop.   And you even may have wondered what we were talking about.  Here is a quick explanation to the door drop and why it is important for your hobby greenhouse plans.

Sealing a Greenhouse

How BCG Stands Out

BC Greenhouse Builders has taken great strides to ensure the best weather-sealed greenhouse on the market today.

Our greenhouse system utilizes a continuous exterior capping to fasten the glazing in the frame against an adhesive gasket for a weather-tight fit. Additionally, we incorporated weather stripping into our doors, windows and vents to ensure a draft-free greenhouse.
