Maintenance tips for your gazebo during the winter

As the winter chill sets in, Sun Leisure ensures that your instant gazebo remains in top-notch condition, regardless of the weather. In this blog, we will lay out some essential maintenance tips to keep your gazebos fresh and ready for 2024.

Whether you own our robust PRO 30, commercial PROTEXtm 40, or industrial-grade PROTEXtm 50, you can rest easy knowing that all our frames come with 12 months warranty. Enhancing this assurance, our carbon fibre reinforced joints are backed by a lifetime guarantee, underscoring the enduring quality of our products.


Cleaning and Drying:

In the winter months, maintaining your gazebo takes on added significance. Ensure your gazebo is not just clean but also thoroughly dry before storage to avoid moisture trapping. This can lead to mould or staining. After each use, give the canopy and sidewalls a wipe-down using a mild detergent and water solution. For tougher stains, a gentle brush or sponge may be employed. However, before packing it away, it is crucial to ensure your gazebo has been dried thoroughly.


Canopy and Sidewalls:

The canopy and sidewalls serve as the visual identity of your gazebo and brand, making their upkeep a critical aspect of maintaining a good aesthetic appeal. This becomes even more paramount when you have a custom branded canopy and sidewalls. To achieve this, it is essential to clean them regularly to prevent dirt build-up and treat any stains. Moreover, when storing, always ensure they are completely dry, as folding or packing away a wet canopy can lead to mildew, affecting both appearance and longevity.


Additional Winter Tips:

Regular Inspections: Conduct routine checks of your gazebo’s components, focusing on joints, pins, and fabric. Thanks to Sun Leisure’s commitment to high-quality materials, concerns about wear and tear are significantly reduced, especially with our gazebos boasting joints with a lifetime guarantee.


Secure Anchoring: Properly anchor your gazebo to ensure stability, particularly in windy conditions. Sun Leisure offers a variety of anchoring options, including pegs, guy ropes, and the versatile option of our weighted feet.


Frame Lubrication: Combat winter stiffness by applying a silicone-based lubricant to moving parts such as joints and pins. This not only ensures smooth functionality but also prevents rusting, further extending the life of your gazebo.


By incorporating these tailored maintenance tips into your winter routine, you’ll not only extend the life of your Sun Leisure gazebo but also continue making a lasting impression at every winter event.
