There are gazebos that you can buy as kits that are considered three season gazebos. Why? Because they are crafted from aluminum that’s heavy-duty and has slider style windows that protect from cold and wind and rain and other inclement days. For full summertime breeze and fresh air, the panes of glass may be removed and screens may be added, or gazebo curtains that don’t permit mosquitoes to enter can be attached with Velcro.
There are so many to recommend, but let’s start with one called Leisure Woods gazebos, mostly because you can choose so many different materials like cedar, pine or even the maintenance free vinyl models. If you choose to go with a cedar design, then you will be assured to have the top grade wood that has been kiln dried, and it’s red cedar which is very durable to say nothing of how great it looks. One of the reason many people opt for red cedar gazebos is because of the natural oils in the wood that inhibits rot and termites. The other good choice would be a preasure treated pine model in what is called the Wolmanized wood that is treated against fungus, decay and termites. Naturally thepine is also kiln dried. Perhaps one of the best choices for long lasting gazebo structures that will not require any maintenance afterwards, are the vinyl gazebos which are crafted from reinforced vinyl and can be added to a deck and can have rubber or even asphalt shingles on the roof.
The Curtains For Your Gazebo
That brings us to gazebo curtains, which you may want no matter which type of structure you choose. Since there are so many styles and shapes, it’s really best to have your curtains custom made or make them yourself from mosquito netting. Attach them to the sides of windows and doors with Velcro to ensure insects remain outside. There are some online shops that specialize in making custom curtains for gazebos that are heavy-duty and some that allow an invisible look because the netting is dark instead of white or metallic. Mosquito Curtains is one such shop, and although it’s small, they offer a really good selection of products.
Other Outdoor Patio Cover Ideas
Although a gazebo may be placed on a deck, it won’t cover a large area but will create a cozy space that’s private. If you need a covering that is easy to put up and comes in a kit, then try the most recent Alumawood kits that are easy to install and are engineered with interconnecting components that make a complete system that you can do yourself, they say, in a weekend. BTW, Alumawood kits are also available in wood finishes to match most gazebo designs.
