36 Spectacular Hardtop Gazebo Ideas

Welcome to our gallery of marvelous hardtop gazebo ideas!

If your backyard space feels empty and devoid of shady areas, you may be in the market for a fabulous multiple purpose gazebo.

Gazebos always make superb additions to backyard spaces. They provide shade and act as a gathering spot for family and guests. Gazebos look great in almost any yard or garden. They can put a cap on a carefully constructed landscaping job or just sit pleasantly poolside. You can use a gazebo to stage events or house your outdoor eating area. A gazebo can transform your space with elegance and style. Your yard can have an extra level of comfort and depth with a structure like this.

Hardtop gazebos are great if you prefer to build a permanent area that will grace your yard in all seasons. Hardtops can reliably bring design to your landscape and garden through the seasons without much change. With proper maintenance, hardtops are resilient to the elements and can give your home an extra charm for many years.

What are the pros and cons of a hardtop gazebo?

Pros

  1. Durable – Hardtop gazebos are the most durable type of gazebo you can invest in. Other kinds of gazebos can be subject to rips and tears and damage. Hardtops will stand up better to potential damage.
  2. Permanence – Hardtop gazebos are best as permanent fixtures. They can stand up to the weather and look great through it all.

Cons

  1. Costly – Hardtop gazebos are more costly than soft top and canvas top gazebos. So when it comes to a gazebo choice you can expect to spend a bit more for your covered space with this option.
  2. Maintenance – Canvas top gazebos are easy to take down and clean. Hardtop gazebos do not have this advantage, so expect more work when looking to maintain them.
  3. Less mobile – Gazebos without a hardtop are easier to transport and store. You may have issue finding space to place a hardtop if you ever need to disassemble it.

If you are on a budget and still want a hardtop gazebo in your space you can find one for as low as $500. For more a substantial, permanent and durable gazebo you may be looking at pricing closer to the $1,500 to $2,000 range. However, if you want to go all out and own a permanent gazebo that will last a long time you may decide to purchase a high end model. Higher end models can cost upward of $10,000.
