/ / Uncategorised









                      IMPORTANT INFORMATION – must read

“Before buying a gazebo in any style, at any price and from any manufacturer, you need to know if it’s the right one for you.”

“Far too many gazebos sold in the UK are poorly designed, frail and often cheap, and some are nothing more than a glorified tent. Which is fine, if that’s what you want. However, you are planning on getting the best from your outdoors and want more than just an occasional use gazebo. You do not want to keep spending to replace a tatty embarrassing gazebo. Then you need to consider my top tips below.”

“Disappointed and frustrated after experiencing two failed gazebos I designed ‘how it should be done’ and started my company. With 10 years gazebo design experience and the success my company has in selling nearly 2,000 gazebos, check out my top tips  you should consider before buying any gazebo from anyone.”  

“You may decide not to buy from us, but at least you’ll have the knowledge to help you make the choice that’s right for you.”

  • My customers tell me of the mistakes they have made in the past and by listening to them together with my design, we’ve cracked it.
  • We have eliminated problems to give you a luxury multi-purpose garden gazebo you can be proud of.
  • Below are thoughts, suggestions, and questions that you need answering before you buy any gazebo.
  • Follow these top tips and make sure this your last gazebo purchase.


The less you pay, the less use you get:

Sadly, this is true of all gazebo’s, because quality costs. But how much you plan to use your gazebo can affect this. If you want something you use only every once in a while then spending less might be the way to go. Alternatively, if you want something that creates a unique outdoor space you can use no matter the weather, then you are going to have to spend more on quality. A White Pavilion Gazebo is a luxury premium quality product, made from the best materials.

A budget gazebo is not designed to last:

That’s why it’s the price it is, made from cheap, poor quality materials. Spending money every year or two replacing your tatty failing gazebo is poor value for money, and more expensive in the long run. A White Pavilion Gazebo is a long-life (20 + years) product manufactured using only high-quality materials.

I’ve found a similar looking gazebo that cheaper than yours:

Don’t be fooled by a rip-off copy of a White Pavilion Gazebo. A ‘rip-off’ copy of a successful product only sells because it fools the buyer into pretending they have bought the real thing and its apparent low price. But it’s grossly overpriced, made from poor quality materials. Cheap is the only way they can sell it, and you pay the ultimate price!

Quote from HG, London: “Two years ago I bought a cheap copy of yours, now it’s in the bin. I’ve learned my lesson!”  White Pavilion Gazebos will last and last and last.

A premium quality canopy for your gazebo is a must:

And should not need replacing for 20 years or more.  White Pavilion Gazebo canopies are made from the same long-lasting material as used in the commercial marquee industry and will last more than 20 years.

Are Gazebos only for summer? 

Most gazebos are designed for good weather use only and are unable to withstand high winds, torrential rain or all year round use. What’s the use of only being able to use your gazebo on those few lovely summer days?  A White Pavilion Gazebo is designed for all year round use – ask my customers in Scotland.

99 and a half won’t do:

Weatherproofshowerproof, water-resistant canopy descriptions are not waterproof and claims of 99% waterproof, means it leaks! Don’t accept anything less than 100%. A White Pavilion Gazebo canopy is 100% waterproof.

The chase is on:

Windy day? Don’t spend it chasing your gazebo. White Pavilion Gazebos are built to last and are capable of withstanding 100 mph winds. We have never lost one to weather, ever! Our record is surviving 115 mph winds in the UK and Hurricane winds in Florida

Mr Muscle:

Save yourself a lot of hassle and elbow grease with a White Pavilion self-clean canopy; it’s a simple choice. White Pavilion Gazebo canopies self-clean in the rain. If you need to keep it pristine, just a light clean with washing up detergent. No chemicals, no abrasives, no pressure washer – just a squirt with a hosepipe to finish.

Made to Measure?

Do not get carried away by focussing on a specific size gazebo, close enough will give you the area for the enjoyment you need. A bespoke design for any product will cost you more, will take longer to arrive and is a gamble. We can only supply our standard sizes. You will also miss out on the unique, valuable features of the White Pavilion design.

Let the sunshine in:

Many gazebos on the market have dark canopies, timber or shingle roofs or thatched, which is fine if you want to be in the dark, even in the summer. White Pavilion Gazebo’s unique translucent canopy allows 85% soft sunlight in and still gives you 100% UV protection from the sun.

Back to nature:

Did you know that gazebos with thatched roofs will go green and harbour all sorts of wildlife? That’s great for nature, bad for your gazebo. Also, thatched roofs have to be replaced every few years  A White Pavilion Gazebo’s unique translucent canopy is more robust than nature.

What is it exactly?

If you can’t find out what it’s made of, it makes you wonder why they haven’t told you.  White Pavilion Gazebos are proud of the high-quality materials we use, and we tell you what they are.

‘Any colour as long as it’s black’ or have it your way:

White Pavilion Gazebos can be personalised to your preferred style and requirements. That’s not an option you have with most other gazebos on the market. Your White Pavilion Gazebo can be personalised to your preference, in a choice of 40 non-fade colours, standard canopy or skylight window canopy, side screens in 4 styles, and more.

Side order:

A gazebo with side screens will give you more weather protection, but most other gazebo companies don’t have that option – but ours do. What is the point of a gazebo without side screens to keep the draughts away? With draught protection, you’ll get much more use from your gazebo. White Pavilion Gazebo side screens are available without windows (to keep nosy neighbours away) or with a choice of 3 windows styles. And can always be added to your gazebo at a later date.


Is it simply DIY? Is there support advice available? Is there an installation service? Can it easily be moved to another location? These are things you need to know before ordering any gazebo. A White Pavilion Gazebo engineered for simple installation or re-installation, and we give you full backup support.

The Guarantee:

Everyone wants their gazebo to last, but will they? A short guarantee suggests even the manufacturer has little confidence in his gazebo, so why should you? A White Pavilion Gazebo UK guarantee is 5 years and has an expected life of more than 20 years.

The Price:

UK Research suggests that 17% of buying decisions are based on price and price alone. For these people quality, service and product matter little. But if you’re one of the 83% for whom value matters, then you are in the right place. Remember the adage – buy cheap…buy twice. Or as many of my customers tell me, 3 or 4 times! At least they made the right decision in the end.


White Pavilion Gazebos are designed and made in the UK so that you can be sure of their quality, and you can always speak to me directly if you have any questions or concerns. White Pavilion Gazebos are designed in Yorkshire by me.


This is the most important tip I can give you. Don’t buy from any gazebo company until you’ve read testimonials from its customers. Remember, the customer is the expert, not the salesman.


Now you have everything you need to know to make your decision. Good luck, and if you want to know anything else give my team or me a call. There is no such thing as a silly question.
