What’s a Gazebo?
Gazebos are ornamental shelters that can be either freestanding or attached to a building. They typically are made of wood, open on all sides, and roofed. Gazebos are great for providing shade and add an additional element of beauty to a preexisting deck. There are a variety of different designs and styles of gazebos, each with its own unique appearance and functionality.
This type of gazebo is the most traditional and the most common. Rotunda gazebos are large and circular with a domed roof that provides an adequate amount of shade for those seated underneath. An originally European design, the rotunda has found its way into the architectural world with prominence. Rotunda gazebos also have the option of being screened-in, which can protect against insects and pests.
This type of gazebo is similar to a rotunda but has a Japanese influence. The roof borrows from that culture’s style and features intricate patterns, shapes, and designs. These gazebos also tend to be smaller, so they are more on the decorative side of things. However, they are perfect for sitting alone, reading or enjoying nature.
We offer the option of having your gazebo made from vinyl instead of traditional wood. Vinyl is water repellent and resistant to the wear and tear of being outdoors. It is also maintenance-free, which means you can spend less time cleaning and more time living. Vinyl is available in a variety of colors too, and does not need to be painted or stained. In addition, vinyl is more durable and longer-lasting, so you won’t have to worry about replacing or refurbishing your gazebo anytime soon.
Why a Gazebo?
- Shade. Gazebos can provide an escape from the hot sun on those sweltering, summer days. And if you choose to screen the gazebo, it can shelter you from the nasty mosquitos that come out at that time.
- Elegance. Gazebos add a certain grandeur to decks and patios that other accessories can’t match. The ornate roofs and walls create an exquisite look.
- Value. Adding a gazebo to your property greatly increases the value of your home. People tend to be more interested in buying homes that have upgrades like gazebos.
- Peacefulness. There are few better ways to relax outdoors then underneath the shelter of a gazebo. The cool breeze that wafts in and the separation from the rest of your yard provides a tranquil experience.
