Gazebo Covers and Replacement Parts


Are You In Need of Gazebo Canopy Replacement Covers?

If you have answered, " Yes", then I have some information and tips on finding gazebo covers for your canopy gazebo. As weather reigns havoc on your canvas gazebo and the color fades you may be in need of a new gazebo replacement cover.

Gazebo covers can be purchased online, unless you are lucky enough to have a dealership close to you that carries gazebo covers.Be sure to know what to ask for, or search for when you begin your quest for your replacement. The tops come in what is referred to as, universal or designer universal covers. Companies online will tell you that unless you buy a custom fitted cover for the particular brand that you have, it will not be a snug fit.

Gazebo Replacement covers

When you cannot locate a gazebo cover that is an exact match for your gazebo, then universal gazebo covers will be your only choice. These will most likely fit, but be sure to get the dimensions of your existing gazebo to try to match it as closely as possible to the universal cover type.

Gazebo Replacement covers are polymer coated for protection against UV rays. The replacement covers, as are the original covers, are not water proof, but water resistant. You will find that some companies offer a heavier type of fabric for the canopy cover.  Some even advertising as having gazebo covers that are 25% thicker than the original cover. This would certainly be an advantage to look into one of these. Some of these companies will even let you return the cover within 30 days if you return it in good sellable condition. This is a great selling strategy, as many gazebo owners are reluctant to purchase a gazebo cover, not knowing how it will work out, especially if its bought unseen.

These will fit most standard types of gazebos, whether you have a pop up gazebo,canvas gazebo, fabric gazebo, or a canopy gazebo. You will also need to know if you will be needing a single tier, or double tier cover. This will depend on the way your gazebo is made.  Most come in standard sizes such as: 10 x 10, 12 x 12 and 8 x 8 ft. While a canvas gazebo will, most likely, take a universal cover, some may not. If this should be the case, you will need to search by brand name (the name of the manufacturer), or the name of the style of gazebo you have, to be sure that you are getting the specific gazebo cover that will fit it correctly. Some companies may have certain dimensions on their canvas gazebo or features that will not allow you to be able to use a universally sold cover. In this case, you have to buy one from that particular company.

A replacement cover for your mosquito netting and privacy curtains are also available for purchase. There are many online companies that you can order from that are good reputable companies. The mosquito netting can also come in universal sizes. Either of these can be purchased with "shower curtain" style rings or with Velcro strips that wrap around the top of the frame of  your gazebo.

You will find some styles that will have vertical zippers. The zipper type is very easy to zip and unzip. These is especially handy when you have people coming in and out of the gazebo with the netting zipped up. Mosquito netting really does a great job of keeping out flying insects, especially is you have gazebo lights that may attract insects.

One good thing about having to replace your canvas gazebo covers, is that if you didn't like the kind of gazebo covers that you had before, you can now search out your options and find a different style or color for your gazebo. You might prefer the new one over the one you previously had.

What is the difference between a single tier and double tier gazebo?

Admin November 12, 2011 at 8:22 am

Barb,
A single tier gazebo has one piece of canvas that covers the top of the gazebo. A double tier gazebo has a smaller piece over the original that adds a separate level (tier) to the gazebo. It is usually very small and looks like a cap on top. This is popular because it will give a space under the top tier for air to escape. It will come as a separate piece of canvas.

I just purchased a poly vinyl gazebo cover. How good is the poly vinyl material. I live in a Arizona and use it year round

Norm, You should get many years of wear from your gazebo cover. It will at some point, depending on your weather conditions in Arizona, need to be replaced in a few years.
