Gazebo enclosure with nylon screens
I bought a gazebo to house my hot tub. I am tired of buying nylon screens that need replaced often. This year I replaced the screens in Jan 2014 and they are already needing replacement.
The gazebo is oval shaped and the metal frame is holding up well. I am trying to find out if I can attach somehow real screen to the outside of the gazebo frame.
I would need some type of hardware to connect it that could be bent around the oval frame. Is there such a thing?
There are types of screen cloth made for screen porches and gazebos that are thicker than the normal gray and black fiberglass screen found in building centers.
What exactly is happening to all the screens you have replaced ? Are they turning brittle in the sun ? Getting eaten by critters ?
I would not use any metal screening in the gazebo because the chlorine vapours from the hot tub will eat right through it.
Im thinking that solar screen is probably the answer. Not just because it keeps out the direct sun but because its much thicker and stronger than normal screen.
