Cedar Wood Gazebos in Virginia

cedar wood gazebos in virginiaInstalling a gazebo on your property is a wise choice for many reasons. It provides a weather-safe place outdoors for you and family or friends to gather and just enjoy each other’s company in a relaxed atmosphere. It also provides shelter for many other uses, such as a hot tub, fire pit, or outdoor kitchen. With the hectic pace of modern society, any time that you can spend outdoors will help to refresh you.

Perhaps deciding to purchase a gazebo was the easy part and now it’s time to decide on the type of material you would like used to construct it. As a customer of Amish by Design, we leave the design options of your new gazebo entirely up to you. This includes the type of material as well as the size, shape, and other unique features. Cedar is just one of several types of materials you can select when placing a special order for your gazebo.

The Benefits of Building Your New Gazebo with Cedar

Placing a cedar gazebo in your backyard gives your entire home a renewed sense of elegance. Most people find the sight of the amber-colored wood and the telltale smell of cedar pleasant tactile experiences. We can confidently say that cedar makes a healthy and safe alternative for any outdoor structure, especially a gazebo. Here are some other benefits for you to consider:

  • This type of material is highly resistant to rot created by everyday moisture. That means it will hold up to a range of weather conditions including heat and humidity. Unlike other types of wood, cedar remains flat and straight regardless of the elements. Best of all, you won’t need to spend a lot of time maintaining your cedar gazebo for it to keep its original appearance.
  • It’s less likely that you will need to maintain the wood with chemicals since cedar contains organic compounds and naturally occurring oils that typically make this treatment unnecessary.
  • Cedar comes from trees known for their strength and stability. When using cedar to create a new gazebo, you won’t have to worry about the structure cracking, drooping, or buckling even when you place something with considerable weight on its edges.
  • You will still have a beautiful gazebo if you choose not to chemically treat your wood. Unfinished cedar ages well and will transform into a silver gray color over time.
  • We use western red cedar when designing your gazebo. We choose this material for its beauty and the fact that it is highly resistant to decay.
  • Cedar is an easy material for our designers to work with, which means that you have nearly unlimited options when it comes time to choose the style, size, and shape that you desire.
  • In addition to resisting rot and decay, cedar resists insect damage as well. There’s nothing worse than investing your hard-earned money in an outdoor structure for you and your family to enjoy only to see that ants, wasps, termites, and other insects have taken up residence instead.
  • Your cedar gazebo won’t lose its natural and beautiful appearance if you choose to stain or paint it. It still retains its grainy texture.
