Before Jeffery decided to go with one of our wood pavilions, he was using a cheaper aluminum pavilion. These cheaper structures are easy to get at big box retail stores such as Lowes, Amazon, or Home Depot. The problem Jeffery had was the lack of strength and stability in these outdoor pavilions. It only took a strong gust of wind to blow it over and into his swimming pool. Besides, these light frames give out after a few years. Jeffery was ready to invest in a structure with lower maintenance — a pavilion that would last for years.
Jeffery wanted an outdoor pavilion beside his summer swimming pool. He wanted a pavilion to provide shade from the hot summer sun and a place for his family and friends to relax and enjoy their time together. His previous setup was not working, so he decided to go with one of our quality, lasting pavilions.
Before we sell our gazebos, pergolas, or pavilions, we discuss each customer’s unique tastes and requirements then build to their likings. Even though this outdoor pavilion was not far from a standard project, there are still a lot of features that we did that are special to this job. For example, we used specialty braces to connect each post and beam, designed to accommodate the unique size of the structure. We also added a cupola for special effects, and included an electrical package for their convenience and more.
