Don’t Overlook the Many Benefits of Today’s Gazebos
I absolutely love spending time in my gazebo listening to music and admiring my garden handiwork. It is my favorite part of my backyard and that is saying a lot considering I design and build patios for a living. In my opinion, gazebos are widely under used in the landscape and for outdoor living. Often a gazebo is over looked in favor of a screened porch. However, I truly feel there are real advantages of choosing a gazebo versus a screened porch. That is why our company helps our clients by offering custom backyard gazebos crafted with the finest workmanship and materials.
Most gazebos come prefabricated, that means they are delivered to your property already built. These custom designed prefab gazebos are very durable and well constructed. Another advantage – gazebos that come prebuilt may only require a zoning permit, not a building permit which can help to keep your property taxes lower. Please note, individual municipalities vary check with yours for exact codes. Screened porches attached to the house always require building permits and thus, can raise your property taxes.
A disadvantage to a backyard attached screened porch is it can block your light and view. One of the greatest advantages of a gazebo is the ability to place it wherever you decide. No need to block your inside sunny light, also you can position a gazebo to take advantage of great garden views. When relaxing in the gazebo, you are part of the garden – not looking at the garden .
Additionally, gazebos come in many shapes: octagon, oblong, oval, square and rectangular, a screened porch is usually rectangular and attached to the back of house.
Protection from Mother Nature
Sit out in the evening in your new gazebo with candles aglow, enjoying the stars; but, not having to deal with the nuisances of bugs and rain drops. A fully screened gazebo including screening under the floor, really does keep out unwanted pests.
