Solexx Improves Growth in Dallesport, WA
Growers Karen and Jeff of J&K Growers in Dallesport, Washington share their greenhouse history and why they swear by Solexx greenhouse covering.
“Solexx keeps the extremes away from your plants – consequently we don’t have stress (laughter)”
“Would you use Solexx again?” “We have no use for any other product”

“We purchased enough Solexx material to commence our first greenhouse renovation (metal A-frame) and were immediately impressed with its ability to flex, bend around corners, withstand extending out long sheets over 100 feet in length as single cut sheets. After experiencing the ease of which we could cut long sheets and apply them on the sidewalls, we decided to run our roof covering lengthwise, instead of the conventional, horizontal direction which requires more cuts and overlaps; thus additional waste.
The results were better than we envisioned on the first greenhouse. On the following set of greenhouses (we renovated 15 gutter connected Quonset type houses) I even took a walk on the roofs to take pictures. The materials strength was evident with every step I cautiously took.”
Update May 2015: We purchased Solexx five years ago. The covering was installed on the roofs of some of our Orchids houses in San Antonio, Texas. Solexx has held up well to the almost year around sunlight and the strong winds we often experience. The diffused light keeps our houses cooler in the summer and allows us to have more growing space since there are no hot spots. Next time we plan to purchase a new roof covering for our greenhouses, we plan to purchase more Solexx.

Solexx stands the test of time at Wabi Sabi Japanese Gardens
I bought my first roll of Solexx over fifteen years ago. At that time Solexx had a ten year warranty, it truly proved the durability test of time. When I decided to build another greenhouse, Solexx was my choice not only for withstanding the elements but also for insulating ability, but for shedding snow load in my northern climate.
