How to Make Your Pop-Up Gazebo Last
Pop-up gazebos are temporary shelters, designed for garden and camping use. With the proper care it will not only look great for all of your occasions, but it will also last for many years to come. We’ve put together some tips for you so that you can extend the life of your gazebo and keep using it for as long as possible.
Keep it Secure
When using your gazebo, the most important way of ensuring yours and your gazebo’s safety is to make sure it is a secure as possible. This will prevent your pop-up gazebo being carried away by a sudden gust and damaging itself or anything around it. The best way to ensure that it is secured is to make sure that the gazebo is flat and not tilted due to uneven ground. If you do have to use it on an uneven surface, you can adjust the height of some of the legs to make it level. It is also recommended to use leg weights and pegs to fully anchor the pop-up gazebo down.
Pop Your Gazebo Down in Wind
Wind is no friend to a pop-up gazebo; it pulls it around, causing damage to the gazebo and anything around it. Due to the nature of pop-up gazebos, their canopies create a parachute effect which can end in them being blown away. To prevent this happening, we advise you to take it down if the wind picks up and starts creating force on the gazebo. It is also a good idea to pop it down when you’re not using it to protect it against a sudden change in the weather. Luckily, their mechanisms are designed to make putting it up and down extremely easy, taking only a few minutes for it to be taken down and kept safe from bad weather.
For our 2x2m, 2.5×2.5m, 3x3m and 3.5m hexagonal gazebos you would only need 1 person to erect and take down the structure. It would take 2 people for our 3×4.5m and 3x6m due to the size of the frame. Unfortunately damages caused by rough weather conditions aren’t covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.
Storing Your Pop-Up Gazebo
How you store your gazebo is just as important as how you use it. Proper storage will keep it fresh for the next use and prevent any decline in quality while it’s stored. Before you put your gazebo away, make sure that the canopy and frame are dry and clean to prevent any reason for damages during storage. Don’t force the frame either; it should smoothly collapse so look for a cause of its not closing properly.
