An attractive, well featured outdoor space is a brilliant addition to any home. Pools, decks, awnings and gazebos are all desirable in modern living spaces – gazebos being particularly sought after in lifestyle homes. Structural elements like steel gazebos provide a living space all year around – for relaxing and entertaining – and are increasingly coveted by home owners.
What Is A Gazebo?
A steel gazebo is a covered outdoor structure. They come in many shapes and sizes, but are often square (also known as a pavilion), octagonal or turret-shaped. They are often found in parks and other public spaces but you will find gazebos in backyards around Australia too.
A gazebo can either be freestanding, like the example above, or attached to an exterior wall. They must be roofed and opened on all sides with freestanding pillars.
Why A Steel Gazebo?
Steel has many uses in the modern world, but it is most commonly used in construction. It is one of the most vital materials used in building, favoured for a number of reasons, the main being its versatility, relatively low production cost, high strength, sustainability and wide availability.
Strength – Steel has extremely high tensile strength. It is an alloy, usually made up of extremely strong materials that discourage dislocation at an atomic level.
Sustainability – Steel is one of the world’s most recycled materials, with a global recycling rate of over 60%. It can be melted down and re-fabricated an infinite amount of times without losing its structural integrity.
Aesthetic – Trends in construction and architecture over the last half century have favoured steel more and more, and this is absolutely the case with outdoor structures. Modern steel gazebos will look fantastic in any home.
Durability – Steel won’t rot, it isn’t combustible, and bugs have no appetite for it – three reasons why it is perfect for an outdoor structure like a gazebo. Whether your region experiences high heat, extreme cold, gale force winds or torrential rain, you can count on steel.
A steel gazebo will look better and last longer in your home than any other option out there. If you are considering a steel gazebo for your new place and would like a professional opinion, we can help.
