While all gazebos provide shade, if you want to get the most out of this structure and your time spent outdoors, look for options that also offer additional benefits like privacy curtains and mosquito netting. While these features come standard on most gazebos, it’s a good idea to verify before making your purchase.
FAQs About Gazebos
Should I pick a hardtop or fabric canopy?
There are benefits to both versions, but your choice is going to be dependent on your needs. If you prefer to keep your gazebo setup year round, a hardtop could provide enhanced protection against weather and heavy snows during the off season.
What features are standard with gazebos?
Besides providing shade, the most common features you’ll find include water resistance, UV protection, mosquito netting, and privacy curtains for the canopies. Metal frames typically come with powder coating to prevent rusting or chipping over time.
I want a year round gazebo, what do I need to know?
Gazebos designed for year round use feature specifications highlighting their weight capacities and weather resistant frames. This is important for buyers that face colder winter climates where snow or extreme cold could encourage rust and weather-related damage. Additionally, year round gazebos tend to feature sturdier frames with installation that may require tools and more time to complete.
