Outdoor gazebos are attractive and convenient additions to cement patios. Use wedge anchors to attach a metal gazebo frame to a cement patio to keep it secure against wind and other elements.
I have a gazebo which is 4x3 meters which needs bolting down onto my crazy paving patio and i am unsure of what bolts to use. The gazebo has 6 legs with 2 holes in each foot which are roughly m6 size.
If your gazebo is particularly heavy and sturdy, threaded rods can usually be used to anchor it, as the weight of the gazebo itself will hold it in place fairly well. 2. Determine Location. Another factor to consider when choosing the type of anchoring for your gazebo is where you will be placing it.
Insert a 3/16-inch pin grip concrete anchor through the hole at the end of each wall anchor plate, which is found on your gazebo. Hit the pin grip with a hammer to secure it in place.
Drill through the deck boards and blocking, and bolt it down. There are two problems with that: 1) The deck is at ground level, so I can't access underneath the deck. I'm not sure how to do it the correct way without being able to access underneath the deck. 2) The deck is made out of a composite material.
Bolting the gazebo to the deck also allows you to use the deck as the floor for the gazebo, whereas you would need to build a separate floor if you have a standalone gazebo. Disadvantages Bolting your gazebo to your deck means that you cannot easily move the gazebo, and that you will need to take the time to dismount it if you want to do so.
We have one of those Gazebos on our back patio as well. My husband doesn't want to drill holes into the stamped colored concrete either. My husband said he is going to get 4 pails/pots, paint them up nicely like my flower pots, place the four corner poles, one in each pot, and pour cocrete mix in around the pole in the pot.
Tips to Secure a Gazebo Canopy on a Paver Patio features tips and ideas of how we secured our gazebo canopy on a paver patio.
We've anchored our to the deck and got 3 years out of the frame before a hurricane damaged it with high winds and bent the frame. But those corners had an L shape with a cross piece for drilling. Can't see the legs of that gazebo and if they are posts, L shaped or what they are made of.
I'm erecting a gazebo on patio paver blocks. The blocks are 18" x 18" square. The gazebo is 10' x 12' with four beveled corners allowing for up to 4 mounting holes in each corner. As is well known these gazebos are very prone to wind damage.
Installing Gazebo, How to Anchor? We recently bought a 10'x12' metal decked gazebo which has yet to be delivered. Heck, the snow hasn't even melted but I need to start thinking about how to install the thing.
The gazebo in question is the Pacific Casual Family Garden House sold at. It is a 12 x 12 metal gazebo. The gazebo has 6 poles that can be anchored to the ground AND rope tiedowns for the 4 corners. We are installing this gazebo on a paver patio (patio is detached from our house).
The legs of the gazebo have a little lip on them that is held to the bottom of the pot with the bricks. I filled each pot with potting soil then planted pansies in each pot. We had a couple of pretty windy days lately and I'm happy to report that the gazebo stayed put and the pots look beautiful!
It is a 12 x 12 metal gazebo. The gazebo has 6 poles that can be anchored to the ground AND rope tiedowns for the 4 corners. We are installing this gazebo on a paver patio (patio is detached from our house). The pavers are Old Castle interlocking concrete pavers in a pattern using 16 x 16 and 8 x 8 pavers.
If you can, make some kind of holes in the gazebo legs, then use 1.5" galvanized lag bolts with washers. Try to hit the joist with at least one bolt per corner. Our gazebo came with round caps on the legs with four holes each.
2. Fill large planters with a layer of sand and a thick layer of concrete. Insert the posts into the concrete while still wet. Let harden. Make sure there is about 100lbs of material in each planter. You can even plant some flowers on top around the posts. Alternatively, you could use concrete footers, which are concrete bases to stabilize the posts. 3.
