1. How are gazebos and Bali huts measured?
We measure them from the outside of a beam to the outside of a beam. Then there’s the shade area where the roof overhangs. The multisided Gazebos are designed from point to point – so the measurement of 3.5 meters or whatever size the gazebo is, is measured point to point.

YES. In addition, they can also be made to cyclone rating, which is a particular benefit if you live in cyclone rated regions of Australia.

Our gazebos are 100% Australian made in our Sydney workshop and installed by our skilled team of licensed carpenters.

7. What’s the difference between thatched roofing compared to Colorbond or Asphalt shingles?

Colorbond is steel and is available in a variety of colours that can usually be matched to your home or business. Many people feel it has a more modern feel to it and is not as easily damaged as thatched roofing.

Bali thatch is the pinnacle of having a traditional tropical feel that is perfect for pool and other outdoor entertainment areas. The grass in the thatched roofing also aids in dropping the temperature by around 10 degrees, where as Colorbond does not.

A great in between product that brings that modern look with long lasting elements as well as tackle the temperature from underneath is our Asphalt shingles.

8. Does the Bali grass thatch roofing last very long?

The lifespan of the Bali thatch varies depending on the climate and conditions where it is situated. The Bali thatch is also a natural grass, so it will last longer in dryer climates than damper climates, but in general terms the grass Bali hut thatched roofing will last anywhere between 8-10 years.

9. What shapes of posts do you have?

Sydney Gazebo & Bali Huts generally supply:

  1. 200mm round H4 treated pine Posts or 
  2. square posts 150x150mm or 200x200mm in either: Australian Cypress, Dressed all round H3 or Hardwoods.

This is generally determined on the size & type of your Gazebo, its positioning & whether it is stained or painted.
The sizes & lengths do vary as there may be times when you need longer posts if you are putting your gazebo on sloped land for example.

10. When is the best time of the year to organise a gazebo or hut?

 Im sure you have heard the saying Summer bodies are made in winter, well the same applies to gazebos.

If your looking to enjoy your gazebo in the warmer months be sure to organise or have the conversation early, minimum 3-6 months before to avoid disappointment.
