Backyard canopy – Pavilions sit outside all day, every day, exposed to humidity in the summer, cold and snow in winter and rain of spring and autumn. Canopy for gazebo takes most of this fighting. A poor quality roof won’t last long under these conditions, although a robust, well-built roof will. From hard plastic to asphalt shingles, materials and designs available to durable gazebo roofs run a large color gamut.
Gazebo manufacturers and third party companies produce roof systems for pavilions. Owners who are not technically inclined or have doubts about building a gazebo roof from the bottom can buy these kits which include materials and instructions to put together a replacement roof. These kits are available for both permanent, hard material pavilions and soft cloth or plastic gazebo canopies used for apartment events but otherwise stored indoors. These purchase replacement roofing systems must have standard building tools, such as a drill and a hammer, on hand.
Framed wood is a versatile starting point for replacing a gazebo roof. Simple wooden frames can be constructed with common tools such as exercises and hammers and a selection of wooden boards cut to different lengths. Wooden frames allow gazebo owners to place any number of roofing materials, from shingles to metal to wooden boards, on top of the frame.
