A new craze for backyard outdoor lifestyle is being driven by the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the increased availability of reliable outdoor structures. But some outdoor lifestyles need more than just any type of outdoor structure – they need excellent hardtop gazebos. Unlike soft-top canopies, pop-up canopy tents, and retractable gazebos, the best hardtop gazebos offer nearly impervious protection against the elements and support functionalities like heating and cooling installations, a grill area, and a kitchen area. They’re also quite an adorable sight that can serve as a focal point of your backyard.
There are many gazebos on the market, and you absolutely get what you pay for. Low-quality gazebos can have orange peel in powder coating which comes from an incorrect application of the coating on various parts of the gazebo. The following gazebos are super high quality, so you won’t find any of that or other defects that detract from their looks.
Sojag Messina Hard Top Sun Shelter
With an elegant design, waterproof frames, a well-vented steel roof, and a commodious space, Sojag Messina is one of the most outstanding gazebos out there in the market. It can support a wide variety of activities while also offering excellent protection from harmful UV rays, strong winds, pests and insects, and even unsolicited attention. The model’s rustproof aluminum frames come with an extra anti-rust powder coating while the steel roof is designed to withstand heavy downpours. The product also comes fitted with top-grade mosquito netting. You can put the entire assembly together from start to finish within a few hours with the help of one or two people.
Sunjoy L-GZ401PCO-1D Hardtop Gazebo
The elegant, golden-glowing arches of this Sunjoy Gazebos model are unmistakably grandiose. Sunjoy L-GZ401PCO-1D is a glistening gazebo, an enchanting sight that can amp up your curb appeal while also supporting a wide range of outdoor activities. With an interior measuring a little below 10 x 12 inches, the gazebo is commodious enough to host cocktail parties, med-sized family dinners, and other group meetings. The roof is fitted with a special Polycarbonate top that filters light and dissipates heat.
You’d be surprised by the relatively low price tag on the product, given its high-end features and functions. The assembly comes with an installation manual that’s quite easy to follow. It takes just a few hours to set up the gazebo, though you need help from one or two people.
Sojag Dakota Sun Shelter
Another highly versatile and elegant gazebo, Sojag Dakota can provide all the roofed functional space you need in your backyard. It comes in two different sizes: 10×10 or 10×12 feet; each towering some 108 inches above the ground. These models can accommodate dining tables for small-medium-sized families, a cozy lounging area, or a sizable kitchen or grill area.
The structure comprises weather-resistant powder-coated aluminum frames and a galvanized steel roof that’s removable. Another key feature is the two-track rail system that can hold factory-fitted nylon mosquito netting and curtains. Note, however, that some parts like the bolts and screws are not weather resistant and might come in need of replacement once in a while.
Sojag Chatham Steel Hardtop Gazebo
Similar to Sojag Messina, Sojag Chatham is also a high-end gazebo that can serve up reliable outdoor functional spaces year-round. It also boasts heavy-duty weather-treated aluminum frames and a sturdy steel roof that can stand up to strong winds and heavy downpours. The roof also comes with a double-tiered vented design akin to those found in Messina and other high-end Sojag gazebos. The interior comes with a sturdy roof center that can support chandeliers and fans. The model also sports a two-tracked rail system for mosquito netting and curtains.
However, one of the major drawbacks of this model is the installation process that’s more complex than those of other high-end sojag gazebos. It can take you anywhere from 6 – 12 hours to complete the installation, so it’s not a one-day affair like the installation of other high-end models.
Nonetheless, it’s always advisable to seek out professional help when buying and installing a gazebo to eliminate any guesswork that you might later regret. Reach out to us today for prompt professional assistance for your hard-roof gazebos.
