  • How to install a gazebo to wood and concrete surface
  • Installing gazebos on wood and concrete surfaces becomes very easy if you have the right equipment at hand, such as drills, bolts, or rods.🌟

    1. Using bolts

    Bolt down the legs to secure a gazebo to concrete. 

    If you decide to use bolts, you will need a drill to help you out. Sunjoy gazebos already have holes in their feet, simply set up your gazebo, mark the point on the concrete surface where the bolt should go, and start drilling. Once done you can secure the gazebo to the concrete surface with the bolt. Repeat this procedure for all 4 legs. Please confirm the position you want, once drilled, it cannot be changed.

    2. Using rods

    Just like with the bolts, you will need to drill considerable holes. Make sure to mark the holes exactly where they are, once drilled, they cannot be changed.

    Once all the holes are drilled and the rods are inserted into the holes, you can slowly lower your gazebo onto the rods. 

    The rods will be permanent but that doesn’t mean you can’t take down your gazebo, so placed the rods in such a way that they won’t be a nuisance when not in use.
