Pavilions are almost essential for creating the perfect outdoor living space. Weather is likely the primary culprit for anxiety when planning an outdoor event. While you can’t control the weather, you can design your outdoor living space with a pavilion to give guests a comfortable place to lounge out of the scorching sun or protected from the intermittent rain that would cancel an ordinary deck party.
While outdoor pavilions serve as protection from the elements, their visual appearance adds character and elegance to your backyard. Pavilions serve as a great place to host a special event like a baby shower, or as a backdrop for an outdoor wedding. Enhancing your pool area with a custom poolside pavilion is sure to be a hit with the guests at your next pool party.
Outdoor wood pavilions are perfect for most locations and have a broad appeal because of the classic look of wood. Large or small, ornate or rustic, traditional or trendy, wooden pavilions are available in many styles and sizes.
Common materials for constructing a wooden pavilion are pressure-treated southern white pine, or for a more classy look, a naturally rot-resistant species like cedar is used. Because of the exposure of wood to the weather, there is periodic maintenance necessary for maintaining the luster of a wood pavilion. If maintained properly, wooden pavilions can last several generations.
Outdoor vinyl pavilions tend to have a more modern look and feel. They are exceptionally long-lasting, as well as easy to clean and maintain. Looking to add elegance to a vinyl pavilion? Why not start with some veneer stonework or add a fireplace or an exotic wood ceiling? Customize your pavilion to complement your decor style.
Vinyl pavilions are almost a maintenance-free product, perfect for the build-it-and-forget-it lifestyle. An occasional washing down of the structure may be the extent of your maintenance over its decades of use.
