WE GO TO GREAT LENGTHS FOR YOUR SPACE TO REACH IT FULL POTENTIAL
Gazebos are elegant, beautiful structures; they delight passersby in public parks and offer a shaded reprieve from the sweltering sun. If you have a gazebo in your yard, you’re fortunate to have an incredible way of enjoying family get togethers without getting too hot; a place to sit and enjoy the beauty of nature in comfort and style. Whether you’re building a new gazebo or your old structure needs a tune-up, we’re here to help you with incredible gazebo painting services.
There are a lot of considerations that go into painting a gazebo; their structures are somewhat more complex than most exterior paint jobs, and thought has to go into what kinds of paint are applied where. You’ll often want different, complementary colours for each part of your gazebo: the floor, the ceiling and the sidings. You may also have ornate trim for your structure; care should be taken to incorporate tertiary accent colours here as well (if they’re desired).
The type of wood used in the construction of your gazebo will dictate the types of paint that should be used. When painting a gazebo, you want very little water within the wood; the moisture content should be under 20 percent to make sure the paint adheres properly and stays on. You’ll have to choose between oil based paints and acrylics; generally speaking, acrylics are best here, because the gazebo will be subject to a considerable amount of foot traffic, as well as the movement of furniture.
When painting the sides of a gazebo, it’s important to remember that people will put their hands on the columns and any banisters; choosing a paint that’s easy to wash handprints off of will make your life easier. When it comes to the flooring, it’s fair to expect a lot of impact from movement and the elements, so it’s best to choose a more durable paint than what you might use for the sidings. The ceiling is the least fussy part of the structure; it shouldn’t see much impact from the movement of people or objects, so you have a bit more flexibility in the paint that you’re going to use. Choosing a different paint for sidings, flooring and ceiling is a viable option, but if you have a two-tone structure in mind two paints might suffice and save you money.
If you have an old gazebo that needs repainting, it will be important to test the paint to make sure there isn’t any lead; special precautions have to be taken when removing lead paint.
