Guide to Buying a Heavy-Duty Gazebo
If you are considering buying a gazebo it won’t be long till you realize there is a whole lot more to find the one that best suits your needs. We think you should take a moment and start to look at what those needs and requirements are first, that way you won’t end up regretting your purchase because it doesn’t live up to your needs and expectations. To help we’ve come up with a really useful list of things to consider and help guide you through to get the best gazebo for you:
What’s your purpose for buying a gazebo?
Ok, so the first question is why do you want a gazebo? It May seem like a silly question but it actually is one of the most fundamental and crucial questions to ask yourself. The reason it is so important is that when you know what you will be using your gazebo then you can pick the one that’s the most suitable.
So, with that in mind, what do you want your gazebo for? Will it be just for a place to unwind and chill out and relax in? Will it used for holding functions such as parties? Maybe you want it so you have somewhere to have lunch with friends? Or perhaps a sheltered area for the children to play in out of the sun or rain? As you can see gazebos can be used for a wide range of purposes, what’s yours?
What kind of features does your gazebo need?
Next step after you have decided the purpose of your gazebo is to think about what features it will need. By knowing which features you require will make choosing the right model for you easier.
Which design should I go for?
As you will quickly see, gazebos come in a variety of designs. It is important to choose a design that meets your purpose while bearing in mind the space you have available to put it. Some gazebos have a variety of canopy and wall options, such as roofs and walls that can be adjusted to take into account the degree of shade/protection required. Some gazebos have a pop-up design to allow for easy installation and come in many colours to suit everyone’s taste.
What’s it made of?
It is probably fair to say this question is one of the most important when buying your gazebo. Most canopy material is made up of a polyester blend and the frames made from a wide range of materials, for example, metal and aluminum wood. The materials used will determine how durable and reliable a gazebo is, plus they will impact the price you pay for it.
Metal and aluminum frames are a popular choice, both commercially and for the domestic user. They offer a good level of durability and tend to be lighter so can be moved around easily. There are some gazebo models where frames are made of wood, although not as durable or portable they offer a more aesthetic addition to the garden if this is your preference.
What shape and size do you need?
Gazebos come in a variety of shapes and sizes. If you have lots of space then maximum size and shapes will not be an issue, if however, this isn’t the case then this will be an important consideration. Remember to think about the height of the gazebo too as this may be an issue in some gardens where telephone lines may be affected. Similarly with the shape of a gazebo, are there flower beds or any restrictions that would affect the area available to house an unusual shape?
What style of roof is best?
There are a variety of gazebo roof designs on the market. A basic consideration when buying a gazebo is how waterproof do I need my gazebo to be. Will I be using it in all weather or just for the odd family to get together in the summer? Some models offer full waterproofing while others offer little or none. Some of the more expensive models offer UV protection and there are models that have roofs designed to give extra ventilation.
Easy to erect and move?
This question depends on your individual needs or requirements. If you want a gazebo that’s more heavy-duty, will be used regularly and be a more permanent fixture then moveability is not so important because once it’s up – it’s up!. However, if you are looking for something you can pop-up and down with ease and which can be easily be transported then you will need to look at designs that allow this.
How much to pay?
It’s fair to say that as with everything we buy, the price we pay should reflect what we expect the item or service to do for us. With that in mind, if you don’t expect to use your gazebo often then you shouldn’t go spending lots of money. Where gazebos are concerned the amount you spend should be equal to what you plan to use it for. For example, if you intend to use your gazebo as added space for working in or for extra space for the kids to play in then spending accordingly will be a wiser investment.
