Gazebos come in different sizes, styles and materials. Wood provides the most traditional look but requires the most maintenance because it requires staining. With metal comes the option of different colours. Vinyl gazebos are usually the cheapest. Vinyl also requires very little maintenance. Decide on what you will use your gazebo for; this will determine how big your gazebo will need to be. For example, you may want a patio gazebo or a larger canopy gazebo.
