Are you considering replacing your garden gazebo with a brand new one? Well-made gazebos can last for years or even decades. Sadly, however, they do suffer from wear and tear just like any other type of exposed structure. So they do occasionally need to be replaced. But how can you tell if it’s time to retire your old gazebo and invest in a new one? It’s not always an easy decision to make. But there are a number of indicators that can tell you if it’s time to replace your gazebo. 1. Your gazebo requires constant repairs If you need to carry out maintenance and repairs on your gazebo very frequently just to stop it from falling down, it’s probably because the structure is showing its age. If you constantly have to repair your gazebo, the best solution is to simply replace it with a new one. Why should you tolerate constant problems that require repairs when you could simply invest in a newer, sturdier structure? 2. The roof leaks Gazebos are designed to provide shade when it’s sunny and shelter when it’s raining. A leaking roof that lets the rain through is therefore a major problem. Of course, it may be possible to patch the roof in some cases, but if the leak is very severe, it may be better to buy a new gazebo instead. If your gazebo is particularly old, leaks are likely to become endemic once they start happening. This is because even sturdy gazebo roofs can decay over long periods of time. We recommend dealing with severe leaks by investing in a new gazebo. 3. The gazebo no longer appeals to you aesthetically Fashions change and so do personal style tastes. If you bought your current gazebo many years ago and no longer like the way it looks, you shouldn’t feel tied to it. Instead, consider purchasing a stylish new structure to replace it.
