Can Exterior Shades Block Wind and Rain from a Gazebo?

I have a gazebo and I am trying to block rain and wind, are exterior solar shades my solution? – Tim L.


Short of putting up a wall, they’re your best bet. Exterior solar shades are designed to hold up to the elements. They’ll do a great job of reducing the amount of wind and rain that comes into the gazebo so that you and your family can enjoy your gazebo during a passing, light shower or moderate breeze. Many of our exterior solar shades are available with hold down hooks to keep the shade in place when the wind blows.
