Fresh air may be what the doctor ordered. But sometimes fresh air can bring some pesky pests as well.

Screened gazebos are a great way to enjoy the fresh air without being bothered by the bugs.

Whether you are looking for a permanent gazebo or a versatile, affordable pop-up gazebo, there are screened in options to keep you comfortable.

Why A Screened Gazebo is a Great Addition to your Backyard

Outdoor gatherings with your friends and family are always something to look forward to. Summertime cookouts, birthdays, special occasions – there are plenty of reasons to invite everyone over to spend some time in the fresh air.

No matter what the occasion, it’s convenient to have a central place for people to converse and relax. A gazebo offers exactly that. Gazebos offer both shade and a place for people to gather.  A gazebo makes your yard all the more comfortable and enjoyable, and people will want to come over and hang out in the fresh air.

One unfortunate consequence of spending so much time outside is exposure to bugs. Depending on your climate and region, bugs may be more or less of a problem. But no one likes a fly buzzing around their food or worrying about a mosquito assault.

Screened in gazebos provide a solution to the pesky problem of busts and unwanted pests interfering with your fun.

Another bonus of screened gazebos is privacy. Many netted curtains served multiple purposes: they keep out the bugs, increase privacy, and even lend an air of romance or visual appeal.

Screened Gazebos for Every Taste and Budget

Many gazebos, both pop-up and permanent, come with screens. Many pop-up gazebos come with screens that zip together to keep you protected. Soft gazebos screens are also often designed to be tied to the legs of the gazebo like curtains, offering options as well as a touch of class and style.

Screened hardtop screened gazebos come with a higher price tag than soft-top pop-up gazebos, but they are sturdier. They are designed to stay up once they are set up and can be used year-round. Some accommodate mosquito nets and screens. But other hardtop gazebos take things up a notch and have screened sliding doors, making it more like an enclosed room you can set up in your backyard.

If you have a permanent gazebo, you might be able to find screen kits that fit the size and shape of your gazebo.

These days many companies make permanent screened gazebos, so if you’re on the market for a permanent structure, consider purchasing one that already comes with screens. Most companies offer both DIY gazebo kits and custom packages. They will work with you to custom design your screened gazebo to ensure that you get exactly what you want.

Screened gazebos come in all shapes and sizes and there are options to suit all budgets. Budget gazebos come in as low as under $500, whereas hardtops can run around $2,000 to $3,000. If you’re looking to invest in a wood, permanent screened gazebo, you can expect to pay over $3,000, and even up to $10,000 and more depending on size and features.

Features to Look for When Buying a Screen Gazebo

Whether you are shopping for a soft-top pop-up gazebo, a hard-top gazebo, or are investing in a permanent structure will impact the type of screens you will want to consider.

For pop-up gazebos with soft canopies, check to see whether the screens zip up and whether they can be tied back to the posts when bugs are not an issue. Some will come with fasteners other than zippers to keep them together. These features are a matter of preference. They both impact the appearance of the gazebo.

When it comes to fitting screens to a permanent gazebo you already own, look for screen fits in the exact dimensions of your gazebos and with the proper amount of panels.

If you’re on the market for a brand new permanent gazebo, decide whether you want a DIY kit to build the gazebo yourself. Or find a company that can customize a screened gazebo to meet your every need.
