    Building a greenhouse can be a very involved process. Many components go into building one of these structures, from solar panels and hoses to frames and glass roofs and walls. Handy homeowners and residents can buy a simple kit and put it together themselves, taking into account solar radiation, soil, energy, and seeds.

    But for a consumer or company that wants to hire out for this service, a greenhouse builder or contractor is the way to go. Services offered include custom designs, turnkey solutions, on-site project management, and free quotes and estimates. Services offered by home improvement stores or gardening centers can include the sale of seeds, flowers, plants, vegetables, and fruits.

    Wholesalers can offer bulk discounts on seeds, garden hoses, and the like. Because greenhouses use solar heat to warm plants, they emit greenhouse gases into the environment; the sun, water vapor, and carbon dioxide are all crucial parts of the process. Greenhouse builders often have backgrounds as horticulturists or botanists. Many greenhouse builders are independent contractors, but some work for greenhouse supply centers. They may have expertise in hydroponics, which involves growing plants in nutrient solution instead of soil.

    Greenhouse builders usually also have backgrounds in construction, and often boast sub specialties like roofing. Whichever type of company they work for, they should have extensive knowledge of how greenhouses are put together, from start to finish. They should know how best to grow plants from seeds, and in which environments these components thrive.

    An ability to work with their hands outdoors for long hours is required, as are strong communication skills and an ability to work well as a team. Greenhouse builders have an added knowledge in that they know the particular aspects of building a greenhouse, rather than simple construction of a home, for example.
