abunda_amazon_reviews There are two reasons for this review. First, I purchased this greenhouse in May of this year and the fabric is already rotting away where it passes over the top horizontal support tube on one side. Seems like the sun just baked it to a crisp. The second reason is I requested assistance from them on their service web page where they advertise a response of 24 business hours or less. I sent the request twice now over a week ago and still no response. Very disappointed that it didn't last even 6 months and they do not seem to be interested in helping. UPDATE: I have added a picture showing how the cover is falling apart. I have since found out on a site for a supplier whose main product line is greenhouses that this is appears to be a know problem. They sell a product that is placed between the metal tubes and the plastic cover to keep heat from the tubes from baking and destroying the plastic cover. FYI, I still have not had a response to this problem from the ABBA Patio. I will update this if there are any changes. 2nd UPDATE: Today a received a brand new greenhouse from Abba Patio to replace my original one that went bad. While waiting for the replacement to arrive I did a little research and found out from another greenhouse supplier that they make a product to keep the metal tubes from cooking the cover in the hot sun. I have order some of them and with my new greenhouse I do not expect any more problems. These are actually a well made greenhouse. I like the reinforced canvas panels and the huge doors and windows. I only gave a 4 star rating because there seems to be a problem with contacting them on their web site. Once I found their facebook page and posted a picture and description of the issue there, they responded quickly with exceptional results. I would gladly change this to a 5 star rating if they address their customer contact form issue and either provide advise or solution to the potential issue of tubes getting hot in the summer sun.;;Reviewed in the United States on October 31, 2016;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Seems like the sun just baked it to a crisp;;Purchaser;;;Our daughter is wanting to get into the horticulture field so we thought this would be a good investment and a great way for her to experiment with something she loves to do. We purchased this greenhouse after reading many reviews and my goal for this review is to share the information we researched and additional steps we took to make this product even better. The reason we decided on the Abba Patio product was that it seemed to have a sturdier frame that was easy to assemble and disassemble if you would have that need. The frame pieces push together and are secured by only a large thumbscrew making assembly very quick without the use of a lot of tools. The tent is made of nice thick plastic with rip-stop cording in it. There are 4 large windows on the long sides and a roll up door that is secured with a zipper on each end, the door and windows are held in the rolled up state via Velcro tabs. One of the problems that people complained of was that the tent fit too tight over the frame thus making the zippers on the doors hard to close, which will eventually cause the seams to tear due to them being stretched tight. When assembling the frame, make sure that the pieces are pushed together all the way, then loosely install the thumb screw, this will allow the frame to adjust to the tent while installing it, you can then go back and tighten the screws later on the inside. Making sure we followed these steps, the top went on very nicely and we saw no binding on the doors and the zippers. Next we decided on how to tackle the problem some had with wind and making the greenhouse sturdy, I did not want to use rope to tie it down since we were placing it next to our house so we purchased two 2x8x10's and attached them to the feet of the frame on the long sides with 5/16" lag screws, if you wanted it heavier you could use a larger board like a 2x10 or even a 4x4 or 6x6, they would all work just depends on how much you want to spend. While this added to the weight of the frame, this alone will not be enough to secure the greenhouse, I knew I wanted to use long pieces of rebar (approx. 3' each) to act like tent stakes into the boards I attached, but did not have the ability to make a 90 deg bend at the top of each piece that would grab the wood after being pounded in, so if you don't have the ability to weld something on the top of the rebar, you can try what we did, which was to use the clamps that you would find on a grounding rod, attach them to the tops of the rebar with the included screws. I drilled a hole for each piece of rebar into the wood on each end and loosely pounded them into the ground to hold the frame steady while we adjusted it then pounded them into the ground the rest of the way (more can be added at anytime if it needs it). We decided to use 2 large planter boxes and some quick shelving on one side for smaller items. The floor was made out of old bricks (from 1877 to be exact) we purchased for .20 each. Now the review that concerned me the most was the person that said that the heat caused the plastic to become brittle after time and crack and split, he said he had come up with a product that could be added to the frame that might help but never told us what it was. I came up with an easy fix that was easy to install and should shield the tent from the metal bars very well. we purchased 3/4" pipe insulation from Home Depot. It came in 4 foot pieces and came 4 to a pack. 4 or 5 packages was enough to cover all of the metal frame in the greenhouse and went on very easy after the cover was placed, of course if I had to do it again, I would put it on the frame before putting the cover on. I thought placing all this insulation would make the cover too tight, but it wasn't. I hope you find these tips helpful if you decide to purchase this greenhouse. Happy gardening.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 8, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Great Greenhouse with some good tips.;;T-Bone;;;I read the previous reviews on this 8x6 greenhouse and when it arrived we were ready to put it up. We purchased 2x6x10 treated wood boards and drilled screws into the feet to secure the frame to it. We can get high winds in March and wanted to give it additional stability. The steel frame was already steady but it was an extra measure for us. The 10 foot long wood anchors also allow me to stack bags of potting soil on those outside corners to weight the green house down. Another measure that we took related to photos and reviews about the poly tarp melting in the sun. The steel beams get heated by the sun and may bake the tarp where it rests on the metal. We're not sure this will help with that issue but we purchased pipe insulation rolls from Lowes and wrapped them around the steel beams. Two of us put the greenhouse up in less than two hours. Having read reviews about the canopy not fitting the frame, we were careful to snug drape it on the frame. Remember we had added the pipe insulation to the frame. We had NO problems with fitting it on the frame. Nor are there any problems with the zippers working properly on the doors. I think it helped to put the cover on in the sun and letting it adjust and loosen up. We made sure the four corners were fully in place. I got an old camping tarp and we stapled it to the wood anchors to create a floor. I plant to plant tomatoes directly in the ground by slitting the tarp. When all danger of frost is gone, we will remove the greenhouse canopy and store it away until next year. That's the plan to help extend its life beyond on season and protect it from the harsh intense summer sun. I only regret now that I have it is that I didn't get the larger model. But this is ok for starters.;;Reviewed in the United States on January 13, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Love my greenhouse;;Home Grower
