Should I Install a Gazebo Over My Hot Tub


We have all seen how beautiful and inviting a well-placed gazebo can be in an outdoor living space.  There’s just something about them that like hot tubs, screams relaxation and comfort!  When you combine the ambiance of a gazebo with the relaxation of a hot tub, you have to ask yourself: does it get much better than this?

Well, actually it does!  Take this same picture that you undoubtedly have in your head and add in the numerous hot tub accessories that are available on the market today.  Custom steps, floating features, pillows, and lights are just a few.  Doesn’t this picture seem like the perfect scenery?

But what is the real reason that hot tub owners are installing a gazebo over their precious commodity? Is it simply for the luxurious setting that it creates? Or, could it be for a much more practical reason? Keep reading to find out!

UV Ray Protection

Those dreaded UV rays that the summertime sun sends down to us can do much more harm over time than what meets the eye.  From a personal standpoint, these UV rays can cause serious health issues with prolonged exposure.  That in itself is a reason for the ever-present popularity of gazebos.  Any sort of shield from direct UV exposure is always a good thing.

UV rays can also damage your hot tub.  The colors that were once so bright when it was initially installed can begin to fade over time.  Hot tub accessories such as lights can become faded too, resulting in an ugly external appearance and a weak internal performance.  Keeping direct UV rays off your hot tub, and yourself for that matter, are strong reasons to put a gazebo over your spa.

Shield from Debris

Anyone who has a hot tub knows just how annoying applying the cover can be.  Even the best hot tub covers can be a nuisance under the right conditions.  Without a cover, however, your hot tub is susceptible to debris and all of nature’s wonderful surprises from above.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a cover that you didn’t have to take off and put on with each session? While a gazebo won’t be the ‘end all and be all’ of hot tub protection, it will provide a valuable cover from overhead debris.  Leaves can be especially troublesome if they find the tender areas of your hot tub.
