    I have been trying to erect a greenhouse (flat packed) since Saturday. Slowly slowly catchy monkey has been my motto, been doing a bit, scratching me head, having a ciggy and doing a bit more. On the final hurdle tonight and.....smash goes a piece of glass. I only put it down gently and it smashed into smithereens. How do I go about getting a replacement? Ring them up and say it was missing or complain it smashed too easily, seeing as it's toughened glass? I've still got to slide the greenhouse in place yet too, and I can see the whole friggin lot going kaboom :confused:

    Either complain and ask for a replacement or nip to your local glass supplier....shouldnt cost too much.

    Have you got anything to put in there.

    I would not like to attempt to move a greenhouse glazed as like you say could end in tears.
    Good luck

    That's my problem Smurf, it has to go in a corner and there is no way of glazing it when it's in the corner. I also thought about just glazing the part I won't be able to get to and glazing the rest when in place, but maybe if I glaze it all and then slide it into place it will make it more rigid and less likely to crack a few panes. Never broke a piece of glass cleaning them, but putting a piece of glass down and kaboom :D

    Might tell them it was missing. Did that with a cabinet a few years back. A flat pack job and I stuck a piece of glass to the wrong part. Tried to prise it off and kaboom, all over the lounge carpet :eek:. A sharp phone call about a missing part of glass and all was sorted :)
