There are a few different types of gazebos for you to choose from, depending on your preferences. You can choose from a whole assortment of wooden, metal, vinyl and fabric. When it comes to choosing one out of these four great materials it all depends on your personal needs and desires. Wood and metal need a lot of dedication because cleaning and maintenance aren't easy. You need to keep them clean to prevent rotting or rust. However, they do give you a nice rustic and traditional look, so it's worth it. Vinyl and fabric gazebos don't require maintenance. Vinyl can just be placed and you don't need to take care of them, except for a nice wash down every now and then. Gazebos from fabric can be taken down anytime you please, and if they are dirty they can easily be washed.
