Are you curious about what outdoor home renovation project to tackle next? Are you unsure of what to do with well-worn outdoor features, such as a gazebo? A gazebo is a beautiful, classic outdoor living feature, but if yours looks like it has seen better days, you might be wondering if your gazebo is worth replacing. Here are a few things to think about.
Is Your Gazebo Worth Replacing?
You will know for sure if it’s better to replace than repair your gazebo if you notice these signs:
- It costs more to repair it than to replace it
- A significant percentage of the material is broken or rotten
- The roof is detached and rotting
- The gazebo is sagging or warped
- It has become the haunt of insects, termites, and critters
- It looks horrible on your property
These signs will let you know if it’s best to get rid of your gazebo. However, you might be questioning if it is worth replacing your gazebo with a new one, or simply knocking down the old. Even if you never use your gazebo, here are some reasons it would be worth replacing.
The Benefits of Having a Gazebo
A Quiet, Private Outdoor Area
A gazebo is undeniably a nice spot to sit and relax. You can use it to have quiet time by yourself, have a private, intimate conversation, or eat and play games with friends and family. A gazebo has many uses, all of which are quite pleasant. If you would like to have a private sitting area in your backyard, a gazebo could do the trick.
A Focal Point in the Landscaping
Gazebos are frankly beautiful and could be the very thing to create a focal point in someone’s backyard. A structure like that anchors the backyard and is a destination point. Surrounded by the right landscaping, it can look very charming. At the right location, it can take advantage of your views.
A Perk to Your Property
A gazebo could also improve your home value. Consider it a way of preserving the assets your property already has that could appeal to potential homebuyers down the road. Of course, your backyard is your own and should be as you would like it.
