Or perhaps someone accidentally scrapped the side with a shovel. Just because a hip rail can be used with roll-up sides you will be able to replace the sides without changing the top cover. Just something to bear in mind.

Because they possess a lower profile pan mind screws will cause less pressure to become positioned on greenhouse plastic through the procedure of the roll-up sides.
There are multiple ways to attach greenhouse plastic to a roll bar. Snap clamps are compatible with 1.315″ roll bar (mentioned above) and so they will be the most cost effective option for attaching greenhouse plastic.

Every roll-up side needs a way to operate. This component allows the roll bar to go up and down. Simple shorter greenhouses, high tunnels, and hoop houses use handles. Longer structures make use of gear boxes to make cranking the tunnel up easier. Below are the best roll-up side operators for greenhouses
