Guide to Buying a Waterproof Gazebo
This question is probably the most important to ask yourself first. The answer to this will then determine the answers to all the other questions. As I’m sure you are aware a gazebo can have an extensive range of uses.
Some of the most common uses are: protective play area for the children, a place to chill out and relax in, hold a party or wedding, outdoor office or just somewhere to hang out with friends and family. There are of course times it can be used in a more commercial setting and if this will be one of your requirements then don’t forget to add that to your list of purpose.
A big factor in the price, strength and durability of a gazebo is what it’s made of. The frame for instance, may be made up of metal, aluminium, wood or a combination of metals. The canopy is invariably made from polyester with a wide spectrum of weather protection options, from fully waterproof to only suitable in a light drizzle. Some offer UV ray protection and some have the added ventilation feature.
Frames made from metal, aluminium and wood tend to offer you more stability and strength of structure. It is possible to find gazebos with vinyl frames which are cheaper but they are less sturdy and are not designed for adverse weather conditions. Wood is both strong and will give a more natural finish to a gazebo but they are less easily moved around and will not last as long as metal ones.
Shape and Size
Considering the shape of the gazebo you would like is not only down to taste but also the size of the area you have available for your it. If space is not an issue then size and shape will based more around what you intend to use it for, however for many folks it is a big factor because of space availability.
Gazebos come in a wide range of sizes, you can be sure there is something for everyone out there from small to very large. There are a few different shapes available such as rectangle, square, octagonal etc which means you can be sure to find the right shape to suit your needs.
The various gazebos designs will offer you a wide range of features. These features need to be considered along side the other previous mentioned considerations. Lets take purpose first, if your intention is just to use your gazebo on an irregular basis then a quick and easy pop-up will be more than enough. Where as if you will using your gazebo as a more permanent structure then heavy-duty will be best.
Roof design and therefore material is also important. What degree of protection do you need, will it need to be waterproof, have a UV protector and/or added ventilation. Gazebo’s come a variety of colours, do you want one that stands out or one that blends in with nature. Wooden framed gazebos are ideal for those who want to keep in tune with their natural surroundings. And of course all the time shape and size will need to be considered too.
Portability and Assembly
How portable and how easily assembled your gazebo is will be determined by what purpose and type of gazebo you go for. For easy transportation and assembly the light weight, light-duty pop up gazebo is your best option. They take no time at all to erect and can easily be used at a moments notice. Where the gazebo is being used as a more permanent fixture then the need for portability is not so important and assembly will only need to be undertaken once, so a heavy-duty style gazebo which offers stability and protection will be the best option all round.
And so to price. It makes reasonable sense to ensure that the gazebo you buy is worth the money you spend. So if you don’t intend to use your gazebo on a regular basis and it’s just for the odd BBQ or get together then a cheaper model will be just great for the job. On the other hand, if your gazebo is going to be used often and is more of a fixed feature then investing a bit more will be great investment – after all, in most cases you get what you pay for!
