Why Canvas Gazebo Covers Are Preferred
The right fabric will bring your gazebo to life and canvas gazebo covers are the way to go.
There are many types of gazebo canopies on the market and finding the right style and color to match your
decor can sometimes be difficult. Even more difficult can be finding a cover that will last a long time and endure
heat, wind and sometimes rain and still maintain a new look. That is why many people are making sure that they
replace their covers with a durable fabric which in most cases is made of canvas.
Canvas is a heavy duty fabric that you most often find in many outdoor products including tents, awnings, patio
umbrellas, deck chairs and even on the sails of boats. Because it is a thicker and more durable product it works
well with gazebo canopies as well since it's strong enough to keep the elements out while maintaining a clean and
colorful look to your outdoor space.
In addition canvas can be water resistant or treated to become flame retardant so it can be a very safe product
to use outdoors. Canvas can also come in many different colors and styles since it is a cotton based product so the
sky is the limit when it comes to changing the look of your gazebo.
When looking for a canvas gazebo cover it is best to talk with the retailer or the manufacturer to make sure the
canvas used is top quality and will withstand harsh seasons in your part of the country. If you live in an area
prone to rainy summers then make sure the canvas cover you purchase comes with a water resistant treatment. You
will also notice that canvas covers will come in different ounces which basically tells you the thickness and
strength of the fabric used to make the canopy. The higher the ounce number the thicker the fabric will be so make
sure you are purchasing the right ounce to work with your gazebo. To thin of a cover and the sun will be shining
through too much and so will rain and wind. If the fabric is too thick you may not get enough light to your living
area and it may also be hard to take down or install over your gazebo frame. Do your homework and shop around for
the exact thickness, color and style and you will be much happier in the long run.
Canvas can be a great choice for a gazebo cover because it is so
durable and long lasting. It is also very easy to clean and maintain and with so many manufacturers out there you
are sure to find a variety of covers to meet your needs. There are many online resources that can assist you in
finding the right canvas cover but as always we highly recommend going to your local home improvement store or
pool and patio retailer to check them out first hand. You simply cannot feel the thickness of the canvas or see the
exact colors by looking at website pictures so make sure you shop for your cover locally prior to making your
purchase. Canvas can bring your gazebo back to life so take the time and do it right and you will be very happy for
years to come.
