Gazebo Canopy ReplacementsBy: Carports, Tents and Sheds Staff Writers
Many people own a gazebo canopy these days, and while an outdoor gazebo canopy can be an attractive addition to any backyard or garden, when the gazebo canopy top or cover starts to wear, they can quickly become an eyesore. Luckily, it is easy to get a replacement canopy for gazebo models that come in standard sizes.
Most commercial gazebos that are sold today are made with a steel frame construction that, barring any severe weather conditions, will hold up indefinitely. The problem is that most gazebo canopy covers included with these gazebos are of relatively poor quality and don’t last very long. A lower quality gazebo canopy cover allows manufacturers to keep the cost down so that the structures are attractively priced for homeowners. This is the case for many of the types of gazebo canopies that are found in most home improvement, big box and discount stores. So, while it is nice to be able to purchase a relatively cheap garden gazebo canopy or patio gazebo canopy to set up in your yard, on your patio or deck, or near your pool, you need to know that you will probably be looking for a gazebo replacement canopy top sometime in the not too distant future.
So, where do you go to find gazebo canopy replacements? In some cases, the best place to go is to the manufacturer that made your gazebo canopy to order a replacement canopy. Gazebo manufacturers will often offer replacement canopies that fit their models of gazebos. The benefit of this is that you know they will fit your particular model perfectly. The disadvantage of this, however, is that the quality of your new replacement canopy will not be any better than your original one.
Another option for ordering a new canopy for gazebo models that come in most standard sizes is to search online for companies that provide replacement gazebo canopies. These are usually higher quality canvas canopies that will wear far better than the ones that come standard with the original gazebo canopy. In most cases, you can find replacements for an 8×8 gazebo canopy, a 10×10 gazebo canopy and even a 12×12 gazebo canopy, since these styles are square and most replacement canopies will fit. The easiest to find is a replacement canopy for 10×10 gazebo styles, since 10×10 gazebos are the most common types of commercial, non-custom gazebo canopies on the market, but you will find other sizes and styles available as well.
Even though many of these replacement canopies are standard for common size gazebo canopy tents, it is best to check with the company selling the replacement canopy to make sure it will fit your particular model. Most companies that specialize in gazebo canopy replacements should be able to tell you if any particular type of replacement canopy cover will fit the model you own.
If you find that it is hard to find a gazebo canopy cover replacement that properly fits your gazebo canopy, or you have an odd-shaped gazebo and can’t get a replacement cover directly from the manufacturer, you can have a custom replacement gazebo canopy cover made for you by any manufacturer that specializes in custom-made covers, awnings, and umbrellas. If you opt to have a custom gazebo canopy cover made, it is best to have one made from Sunbrella fabric, which is one of the most durable and high quality outdoor fabrics available on the market.
When it comes to canopies, gazebos and even some styles of tents, there is no reason to worry when your canopy cover wears out before the frame of the structure is ready for the trash. Rather than having to live with an unsightly canopy cover or having to replace the entire structure, you can order a gazebo canopy replacement cover and have your gazebo canopy looking like new again in no time.
