Thatch Gazebo Construction
All timber poles are pressure treated with Tanalith `E` wood preservative. To ensure maximum weather protection all timbers are additionally double soaked treated in a brown wood treatment preservative. All timbers (including poles) used for the construction of our thatch gazebos are made premium quality redwood timbers. The redwood timbers are considered the "Rolls Royce" of softwoods and is a more durable, slower grown and stable wood. It has excellent strength and does not warp, shrink or split to the extent of other softwoods such as pine. The number of poles used are dependent on the size of the thatched gazebo chosen.
