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.

Properly Sealing your  Greenhouse

BC Greenhouse Builders has taken great strides to ensure the best weather-sealed greenhouse on the market today. We have designed a system without the use of glazing clips as they create air (draft) gaps. 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.

A secondhand greenhouse in San Francisco

We recently helped out some customers who had purchased one of our greenhouses secondhand! The greenhouse was fully functional and they only needed a handful of new vents and screws. But other than that, it looks to be in pretty great shape! They were very happy with their purchase and we love seeing our greenhouses continuing to get love years after they are originally sold.
