If you think about the competition and the level you need to perform at to be successful, hiring a professional is the right move to make.
If you’re still not convinced that you should get help in the building of your grow room, take a look a the following six reasons you should:
Building for Your Growing Medium
You want the design of your grow room to match your grow’s needs perfectly. A good design and building will be set you up with the right design for your growing medium. That may means giving you the proper layout whether you’re growing in soil or hydroponically. This will make things a lot easier when it comes to working in your grow. Having a designer who can get you a grow room that suits your needs is essential to success.
The Right Amount of Light
If you want to end up with a good product, then you’ll have to make sure your like cycles are correct, especially during flowering. You’ll especially want to avoid flashing the plants with light during the cycle, or having light leak in from outside sources. That means you’ll need light-tight room. An amateur might overlook areas that could let light in, or they may even use paneling that isn’t light-proof. A professional isn’t going to let this happen.
They’ll Build It Air-Tight
You always want your cannabis grow room to be air-tight. Good luck achieving that if you’re not an experienced builder. If you have air leaks you’re going to have a hard time controlling temperature. Either you’re going to incur a lot of expenses trying to keep it steady, or it’ll fall outside of the target range of 75 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Having your plants outside this temperature range can have an effect the potency in a negative way.
Ensuring the Building is Up to Code and Grow Meets Regulations
One of the biggest hassles for someone getting into the industry is dealing with oversight and regulations. If you have a professional grow room builder working for you, you can rest assured that your room will be up to code. They should also be able to ensure that it meets any other regulations or guidelines that in place at a state or local level. Remember you’ll face several inspections, and you don’t want to fail and have to reschedule any of them.
Installing Your Equipment
It’s important that the equipment in your grow is properly installed. A construction professional will be able to build the room and hang lights and fans for the ventilation system without issue. It might not be so easy for you to do yourself. You’re dealing with things that can cause fires and other structural damage if not installed properly. Not only that, but they won’t pass inspection if you don’t do it right, and that’ll cost you more in the long run.
This is one thing you may not be thinking about, but you should be. You need your business to be ready to change on the drop of a hat. Your builder may use an option like a modular grow room so that you can expand easily when business demands it. Or they may have some other type of plan in place for you, but either way, they’ll have you ready when the time comes.
Whether you’ve been in the industry for a while now or you’re just get started, it’s a good idea to consult with a professional grow room builder. They’ll be able to give you some insight you may not have thought about yet. As you can see, having them build your grow room can prevent a lot of headaches as well.
