Why You Might Want a Gazebo Hot Tub

Why You Might Want a Gazebo Hot Tub

It's great to have a wooden hot tub you can slip into anytime you want, but if you want to go the extra mile and create a truly beautiful area in your yard, a gazebo hot tub is the way to go. There are several advantages to adding a gazebo over your hot tub area, some of them practical, and some esthetic.

From a practical standpoint, a gazebo (with a full roof) provides shelter from rain and snow. Now you can enjoy your tub in any weather! Another practical reason to add a gazebo is property value. It's one of the few things you can add that's completely temporary (if you want it to be) and will add much more to your property's value than it costs.

Esthetically, some hot tub areas are plain and, frankly, can be an eyesore in an otherwise beautiful, landscaped yard. Adding a gazebo can turn that completely around! If you pay attention to matching the materials comprising both the deck and gazebo, the entire area will instantly become a gathering place and source of pride.

Gazebos are traditionally used to cover central areas where people congregate for events or parties. This makes them ideal for covering hot tubs, which serve the same purpose as private residences. No longer will a rainy day ruin the backyard party. Just plan to have it on the hot tub deck under the gazebo!

Another great thing about gazebos is all the options you have available to customize yours. The lattice and railing can be changed to suit your tastes or to more closely match the deck around your hot tub.

Some gazebos have slatted roofs. This lightens the load, which can be important if you have a large hot tub. A large, full tub can weigh over two tons. If your decking was built originally to bear only the weight of your full tub, it may be dangerously strained by adding a gazebo. If you're not sure, have it professionally assessed before choosing the gazebo to add.
