Are backyard gazebos trending in 2016? You bet!

As an enhancement to any deck, patio or garden, not only are gazebos visually pleasing, they’re functional too.

A gazebo will provide a charming cubby from springtime showers, a breezy respite on warm summer days and a special place to enjoy autumn temperatures and seasonal color.

Enhance your deck design with a ‘roof’ cover — slatted pergola, solid roof, open or screened gazebo or screened in deck — for privacy and style.

Slatted Deck Pergola

A well-designed pergola does ‘triple duty’ for your deck.

Pergolas add area definition with a sense of enclosure.

It adds a canopy of shaded comfort.

And pergolas create stylish intimacy when cozy furniture and hanging baskets are added.

Solid Roof for a Deck

Just like a pergola, a solid roof cover — without screens — also adds a sense of enclosure, shade and privacy.

Ceiling fans and lighting are another thoughtful detail to allow enjoyment of your new deck, from dawn until dusk.

And often an open roof can be turned into an enclosed structure, later.

Gazebo for a Deck

Adding a gazebo or pavilion to a deck’s design is another way to ‘put a roof over your head’ for outdoor living — day or night, rain or shine.

Many of our customers choose an open or screened gazebo design while others prefer a pavilion style.

Either way, gazebos and pavilions are a fabulous way to relax and enjoy the great outdoors.

Screened In Deck

Archadeck* designs many decks with a screened room featured, either on the deck or under the deck. Read the rest of this entry »

Gazebos or backyard pavilions can be designed with various materials, colors, shapes and sizes.

With a wide selection of gazebo and pavilion designs, you might ask yourself, “How do I begin planning my new addition?”

And that’s where the pro’s come in.

A contractor with expertise in outdoor living spaces will take you through the design process to ensure you’ll love your new backyard gazebo or pavilion whether it’s for a deck, garden, patio or other outdoor space such as a swimming pool.

An open gazebo or other shade structure is an ideal outside focal point used for a family party, eating a meal, or just taking-it-easy.  A screened gazebo is also a shady backyard focal point, but supplies additional protection from weather and bugs.  The key point:  Gazebos and pavilions add gorgeous style to any home and backyard setting.

So, the best place to begin the planning process is to look at images and decide what’s personally appealing.

Things to consider include:

  • Building site, materials and size
  • Style, shape and color
  • Free standing or attached
  • Open or screened
