Evolution is an amazing enclosure

I purchased 2 Evolution enclosures and 2 Evolution hoods. I’m using an Essential spacer as a stand. Everything goes together perfectly!! They look beautiful when stacked. Worth the wait for sure…be patient. They’re popular for a reason. Quality, looks, EVERYTHING is perfection!!!

100% satisfied.

Amazing company

I researched nearly every brand of PVC enclosures before I made my purchase, and this one was by far the best quality vs price. I especially love that they include the basic features at no extra cost, ie. screen top, and a lock! I also emailed them a question before I made my decision and their customer service has been amazing! After my purchase I emailed again when I was about to be out of town, to check the status of my order; they responded quickly and efficiently! I purchased this enclosure for my 4 year old corn snake! It was very easy to assemble; we used our dining room table and screw drivers! I also think customization is simple because the PVC is not difficult to drill into. We attached branches, a backdrop, and drilled 2 temperature probe holes after the initial assembly. I would recommend attaching your lock at the bottom of the doors though, because I put mine almost mid-way and now there's a scratch on the acrylic. Since my enclosure has been fully set up, it is holding heat so well! I have a CHE set to turn on at 70 during the night, but I don't think it has needed to run yet, or not for very long. This enclosure is everything that I hoped it would be for my snake, absolutely worth it!

Perfect (:

Easy to build and higher quality than expected (which I ALREADY had faith it would be great, it exceeded expectations).
Worth the wait for sure (: thank you all for the great communication as well as quality products.
My ball Python has other thoughts, however, as he can’t escape his new home. Thank you all again!

Durable, Well Made, Worth The Price!

We received our two Evolution 4 PVC enclosures in April 2021 and we could not be more happy with our choice. They currently house an adult Blue Tongue Skink and a young Asian Water Monitor. Both require a solid amount of humidity and heat which the enclosures make much easier than most of their competitors. Custom Reptile Habitats was even kind enough to answer some questions and send us a bottle of silicone they recommended for sealing the seams in the base. That silicone (ASI Aquarium Sealant) has held up far better than the more common GE Silicone #2.

High end PVC enclosures like these are more expensive for a reason and we feel confident that the investment has paid off. Half inch expanded PVC is the best enclosure material we have found so far and we have more than 20 animals in more than 20 enclosures. Glass enclosures have their place, but especially for larger enclosures PVC is the clear winner.

The sliding glass doors are extremely secure and easy to lock, and the screen top has much larger gauge holes than the majority of competitors and is EXTREMELY sturdy. We moved house recently and one of these enclosures was beaten up quite badly in the back of the box truck. All of the damage was cosmetic! Even the large dent in the screen has not effected the security of the enclosure.

After working in a reptile store and keeping many very different species I can very confidently HIGHLY recommend Custom Reptile Habitats as a company, and this product specifically.
