Roof Colors

Do I get to pick my flooring color?

Yes we currently offer 4 different colors of flooring on Gazebos, Redwood, Cape Cod Grey, Cedar & Weatherwood.

How long is your gazebo warranty?

We offer a limited lifetime warranty on your gazebo.

Do you have subcontractors install your gazebos?

No we do not hire subcontractors. Unlike the box stores who use subcontractors that can lead to a revolving door of different installers where there is no accountability.  We employ our own crews who are highly trained to build the best quality gazebo possible. It is wonderful to get that call after an installation letting us know how professional and courteous the crew was! 

What type of access do I need to give the installers?

We build our gazebos to order from scratch. They are prefabricated in sections to allow the installers more accessibility at your home. This allows us to go through gate openings without having to remove fence sections etc. If we cannot unload within 100’ of where the shed location is and additional cost will apply (usually $30 charge).

Do I need to do anything to the gazebo location site?

No as long as the elevation does not drop more than 12”. The best way to determine this is to mark the area where you would like the gazebo to go. From the highest ground corner to the lowest ground corner it should not have more than a 12” difference. Included in the gazebo pricing we will supply our own bricks and blocks. The installers will adjust them accordingly to make sure the gazebo is level. If you need any help determining whether your site is sufficient or if your site is more unleveled than we require, please call us for a FREE on site evaluation. There are several options for preparing an unleveled site and we would be happy to counsel you accordingly.

Site Requirements

Do I need to have cement bricks and blocks there the day of installation?

No, we will supply the bricks and blocks. This is included in the price of the gazebo.

What if my area is not level and does not meet the installation requirements?

Many times some fill or crushed stone can do wonders to help level off the area. Concrete sono tubes are another popular choice. We would be happy to give you a diagram detailing where to place them for your gazebo size. We can also refer people in the field who can do this work for you.

Site Preparation

Do I need a building permit?

The town permit requirements for a gazebos varies throughout New England. In many towns, you do not need a permit for an average size gazebo. We do leave this up to the homeowner. If your town does require one, we will be glad to assist you with the application.

Is the gazebo delivered and built in the same day?

Yes our installation crews deliver and install on the same day. On occasion with a larger size gazebo the installation may take two days to complete.

What if I decide to move the gazebo later in my yard or sell my home and want to take the shed with me?

We are happy to move the gazebo for you and re-level whether it is across the yard or across New England. If we move the gazebo it does not affect your warranty .
