Pax Ivanna. Patio & Pergola. March 02nd , 2017.
Wipe down and scrub all the dirt and mould. It's hard work, but if you don't keep on top of the cleaning, metal surfaces will attract salt and corrode.
The idea is to have a functional space that's also versatile, and that might mean dynamically breaking up your patio space into different areas - e.g., a grilling area, a bar area, and a lounge area.
First decide where on your patio you would like the gazebo to be situated. For small to mid-size patios, the corner is a great place to put a gazebo. It will be out of the way, saving space, yet still displayed prominently enough to be an accent people will notice. Large patios give you more flexibility. If you want to put the gazebo right in the very middle of your patio, then by all means, do it. You can 'justify' such placement by arranging surrounding patio furniture accordingly.
After the weather-proofing issue, the next major problem is the gap around the pet flap door. Homeowners in windy areas notice a blowing pet door in harsh weather and may want to look into weighting the bottom of the door.
