Gazebos have become a popular choice in recent years for many homeowners. They can be built from scratch or purchased already built and delivered to your home. Gazebos come in many sizes and designs but most will provide a shaded place to sit and even a bug free zone if they are screened. Like most exterior wood surfaces, a wood gazebo will deteriorate if it is neglected. Harsh UV rays and moisture can cause cracking, splitting, splintering, and graying in a short time.
