About Elite Greenhouses UK
Barretts Leisure, the parent company, started life over 40 years ago as a family run nursery.
A leisure centre was developed over 30 years ago, at the same time we began making our own sheds in a barn, many of which are still standing today.
As time progressed we gave up manufacturing and concentrated on selling quality products, giving our customers as large a choice as possible at an affordable price.
Barretts have been trading successfully with Elite Greenhouses for many years and have seen many new intuitive developments from this family run British firm.
Barretts have a good reputation nationally with many orders received by recommendation.
We offer many other quality garden buildings and deal with UK national and overseas companies and many smaller family run firms.
Quality is our motto. All our suppliers have to satisfy our high standards, before we will trade with them.
Where possible, we like to show the finished price, in the belief that our customers would prefer to know the 'Bottom Line' price. So beware of the so called BARGAINS which may have hidden EXTRAS, can be structurally weak or contain lower grade materials.
As with most items you can buy today there are look-alikes and imitations. Elite greenhouses have other manufacturers copying their designs and selling them as look-alikes.
A carefully executed test was carried out by Elite in February 2009 on one such look-alike with the result that the same size and Elite model contained from 4% to 97% more aluminium, the parts were not labeled, the glass was delivered loose and all the parts were just laid loose in the box, the coloured parts were not wrapped and subsequently had scratches on them. At that time we were only charging £10 more for the same sized genuine Elite greenhouse!
