Gazebos and Awnings Buying Guide

Gazebos and awnings are a great way of creating extra space on special occasions.  You can take advantage of this quiet place to read or relax or even let your children play.


  • Material Types: Gazebos are manufactured from pressure treated timber or tough waterproof plastic material. Metal gazebos can range from those with aluminium poles to those with heavy steel frames. Cedar is also very long-lasting and a natural bug deterrent. Teak is the most resistant to warping and rotting. Pressure-treated pine will absorb paint easily than other wood material.

  • Shapes: Hexagonal gazebo with its hexagonal steel structure frame, canopy and tab top curtains proves to be more spacious. You can also find octagon, oval and rectangle shaped gazebos. 
  • Sizes: Gazebos are available in various sizes from the petite 6-foot gazebo to a 20-footer sufficient for groups. 


  • Retractable Awning: This awning is set directly over the terrace and is attached to the side of the home. You would have the option to unravel it whenever you need it. Retractable awnings are either automatic or manual.  
  • Window Awnings: This type of awning is placed outside a small window to provide shade from the blistering sun.  
  • Freestanding Awnings: These awnings are utilized to cover people who are in a large swing that is placed in the centre of the yard.  
  • Types: Shed style, concave, convex, entrance, dome, terrace and elongated dome are a few types of awnings.
