Hot Tub Gazebos? Hot Tub Enclosure Domes? Hot tub gazebos vs. hot tub enclosures – what really are the pros and cons of each and which one should you purchase? A Hot Tub enclosure or dome does have many benefits compared to a traditional wooden hot tub gazebo. But for some, gazebos will do.
For homeowners who want to enjoy their backyards in a shaded area and can commit to the maintenance demands that come a long with them, wooden gazebos can be beneficial.
But to be frank, there is a lot of maintenance that’s required with wood gazebos. Debris such as leaves and twigs need to be removed from gazebos’ roofs. Inset nests, mold, and mildew should also be removed. Every few years, gazebo owners may need to power wash, scrape peeling paint off and repaint or stain these structures.
And with cedar gazebos in particular, in order to preserve their natural color, a sealer will need to be applied directly following assembly and again every two to four years. Constant exposure to the sun can deteriorate canopies, which at some point may need to be replaced.
If you’re planning on using a wood gazebo as a home for your hot tub, it’s important to know that views from your hot tub are obstructed. It’ll be difficult for you to fully see your backyard or the sky. Hot tub dome enclosures on the other hand, do the opposite and are virtually maintenance free.
Hot tub enclosures are equipped with roofs that can be partially opened. Views are not obstructed – through their polycarbonate that is clear as glass, users can completely view the area surrounding the enclosure. Polycarbonate creates a “greenhouse” effect that can be appreciated in off seasons.
Many enclosures are made from aluminum and polycarbonate, and hot tub specific enclosures don’t require any maintenance. There is however is a con: you may enjoy it a little too much and won’t want to get out!
