Gazebo Depot opened it’s 1st store in Palm Beach County, Florida in 1999, so we believe that we are experts in how to design our Structures to withstand Hurricane force winds up to170mph. With the help of our engineering dept, we have Licensed Structural Engineers for every State that we work with and with their help we have designed a “Hurricane Hardware Modification Package” that will not only stand up to the strong winds and harsh weather that a Hurricane will bring but also extreme Winter States with heavy snow and blowing winds. The hardware that is to be added is done in a way so that your Gazebo is very attractive and non-intrusive to the Structure. All of our additional clips, bolts, truss strap, strong-ties, and anchor system will practically go unnoticed and will blend in for a strong, structurally Hurricane and Snow Load Code Compliant Gazebo for most building dept. requirements. This package will include all of the necessary hardware and Raised Sealed Engineered Drawings that will be required to be submitted to your local building dept. for approval. Prices on these packages will vary due to the size of the Structure and the State codes to where the structure is going. Please be advised that some material such as Cedar or any #2 lumber may not allowed to be used due to the lack of strength in this wood. If you need any help or have any questions in general w/ regards to your upcoming project or with applying for special permits, please feel free to contact our very knowledgeable staff toll free @ 1-888-243-2410.
