Wood vs. Vinyl Gazebos

Gazebos make a great addition to your backyard or garden. They are incredibly adaptable and customizable, with options available for many styles, colors, and shapes. They can be plain, wooden, and rustic or elaborate and ornate. At Alan’s Factory Outlet, we proudly offer many options for customization in our online catalog so that you can choose the perfect color, material, roof, and style of your gazebo.

Popular Uses For Gazebos

Gazebos have been popular for thousands of years, with the earliest ones dating back to ancient Egypt and Rome. They were used as sanctuaries in the garden and varied from simple structures to elaborate, ornate constructions with two stories, marble columns, and cupolas. Some ancient gazebos were created with marble floors and situated over a stream or lake so that the floor would be kept cool by the water. Today, gazebos are a popular addition to backyards, gardens, and lake/pool areas. They offer a wonderful area to relax and enjoy nature while being shaded from the sun or rain. The gazebos we have for sale are fully customizable, so you can choose the exact structure that will be perfect for you. We offer vinyl and wooden gazebo kits, with each material having its own benefits.

Wooden Gazebos

There are many reasons that customers might choose one of our wooden gazebo kits over a similar vinyl gazebo. Gazebos made of wood have a classic, rustic appearance and can easily be stained or painted to coordinate with most houses. Our gazebos are made with pressure-treated wood, so they are perfect for your backyard and guaranteed to withstand the elements. Another benefit of wood gazebo kits is that they offer many options for customization. Customers can choose to add a screen door or scalloped edging in order to create their perfect gazebo. Our wood gazebo kits come in either an oval or octagon shape with a choice of a single or double roof. Turned railings and a cupola are standard on all of our kits. The wood we use for our gazebos is particularly strong, so the floors are strong enough to hold a Jacuzzi or hot tub — perfect for those hot summer nights!

Vinyl Gazebos

Vinyl is also a great material for gazebos. Our vinyl gazebo kits come in a variety of colors, so you’re sure to find the perfect color to match your home or outdoor decor. Customers can even choose a different color for the roof in order to further customize their gazebo. Vinyl gazebos are a great choice because they never have to be stained or treated. They’re perfect for a pool or spa area because vinyl is already waterproof — no added chemicals are needed. They also will not fade, rot, or crack in the sun. There is no danger of infestations from termites or other pests, and they are safe for children because the material is smooth and will never cause splinters.
