Having had recent experience of dismantling and re-erecting an aluminum
greenhouse recently the main advice i would give is to discard all the
aluminum screws and nuts and the glazing clips. Replace them all with
new and you will save yourself hours of time. New fixings and clips will

I have bags and and bags of brand new nuts bolts and clips (running
repairs to our existing 6 greenhouses), but its a valid point and saves
hours of grief!
