However, they require a lot of maintenance, as insects and the weather can damage them over time. If the wood is chipped, you'll need to sand it down and apply a new coat of color.💐

Metal Gazebo:

Metal gazebos are durable and at the same time they have a very modern look. Metal gazebos can be made of aluminum or steel. Aluminum is lightweight and rust-resistant for easy movement and assembly. Steel gazebos are very strong and can withstand inclement weather, but are not rustproof.

Gazebo installation cost:

Professional Installation:

Professional installation trades labor for cost, and the cost of a professional installation can vary depending on the size and complexity of your gazebo. Professional installation can give you peace of mind and save time and energy in the long run.


Assembling a gazebo yourself is a DIY process that saves on labor costs. It requires basic carpentry skills as well as tools, depending on the size of the gazebo. The DIY installation process is time consuming and can take days, especially with larger gazebos. However, this process is made considerably less difficult and time intensive when purchasing a ready-to-assemble gazebo from Sunjoy. Each piece is pre-cut, and pre-drilled, speeding up the assembly process considerably while still guaranteeing a beautiful, finished product.💗

Regarding the cost of later maintenance of the gazebo:

Maintenance costs may also include replacing damaged parts and repairing wear and tear. Regular maintenance can prevent more costly repairs in the long run, while also ensuring that your gazebo continues to be in good shape and function.


Gazebos can be a great addition to any outdoor space and provide a comfortable place to relax and entertain. The cost of a gazebo can be greatly influenced by factors such as size, material, and more.

Professional installation also adds to the cost, however regular maintenance will keep your gazebo in good shape, and with proper care and maintenance on your part, a well-built gazebo can last for many years.🌞🌞
