Decks and Gazebos by Archadeck

Open Gazebo and Low Maintenance Deck by Archadeck

Gazebos are modern outdoor living spaces but they hold a solid place in history as popular outside decorations too.

The earliest known gazebos were found in Egyptian gardens 5,000 years ago.  And as outdoor structures, they’ve been around ever since.

Traditionally, a gazebo is defined as a free-standing structure with a vaulted, dome-like roof, often with 6 or 8 sides and open walls.

And gazebos are often designed and built for ‘heights’, then coupled with an attractive view for a building site.

As outdoor buildings, gazebos provided shade, shelter, privacy… a respite with a view.  It’s no surprise that the term ‘gazebo’ is believed to be developed from the word ‘gaze’.

Today’s gazebos are all of the above, but offer much more.

A gazebo addition is certainly a way to beautify a yard and provide a comfortable, private and inviting outdoor living space.  However, contemporary gazebos, as the ones we design and build at Archadeck, are versatile and truly customized.

Deck and Screened Gazebo, St. Louis, Mo – by Archadeck

Contractors can add interest to a gazebo design with shape, color and state-of-the-art materials.

We often build a gazebo as an architectural anchor for a deck resulting in a ‘combination’ deck/gazebo project.

Or a patio gazebo can become a large area for entertaining or gathering near a backyard pool.

Archadeck can screen-in your gazebo and install lighting for additional versatility with added hours of enjoyment.

No matter what your lifestyle, this type of home addition can add a gorgeous element and practical space for your backyard.
