Aluminum gazebos offer a maintenance free enclosure for spas, hot tubs or just a place to get away. Aluminum will out last wood by many years and you will never have to paint it.
Aluminum Gazebos are easily made out of Alumawood products. We have many illustrations of aluminum products being used for all types of shade structures, including gazebos.
Prefab gazebo kits are primarily wood or vinyl (resin). Every now and then a noteworthy aluminum version comes on the market and we highlight it here. We are big fans of aluminum for many reasons. As mentioned above, no maintenance, meaning no need to paint it every couple of years. Aluminum is also easy to work with. Any of these prefab kits can be built in a weekend by a handy homeowner and a couple of friends. Some can be knocked out in a day. Just don't invite too many friends and serve too many beers, that never turns out good.
The Sundown Pergola features an aluminum frame with a retractable fabric top. It looks like it would be a very functional all weather canopy.
The Victoria Gazebo also has a fabric top, but it is not retractable. It is still a nice looking and a very affordable shade structure for your yard.
The Sojaq below is one of the favorites from the Amazon collection.
