Gazebo demolition can be performed by anyone with light to moderate construction experience, and it can usually be accomplished in a single afternoon. —Do It Yourself.comIf you have a truck and/or trailer to haul it, then you’ll need a few helping hands.

Tampa Gazebo Removal GuideRegardless, when it’s time for gazebo removal, it’s just time for gazebo removal. The trouble is, how to best go about it. Meaning, what’s the right way to handle the job, especially if you’re determined to go the DIY route. Here’s a helpful gazebo removal guide to follow:
- Clear it off. Benches, chairs, and tables inside the gazebo must be removed, as does anything else that’s standing or hanging which isn’t part of the original structure. These include wind chimes, hooks for hanging plants, and other items.
- Take down the trim. Remove all the trim from the gazebo using a pry bar and/or claw hammer. This can be reused, if you wish or the trim could be thrown-out, if it’s not in usable condition. As you remove the trim, place it in a pile out-of-the-way.
- Remove the roof. Determine how the roof is fastened to the support beams. Use a ratchet or impact wrench to loosen and remove the bolts to take down the roof — along with a ladder or two.
- Pull down the walls. After the roof is removed from the structure, you can tear down the walls. Here again, the materials can be reused for another purpose, if it’s in good condition. If it isn’t worth saving, put it into a pile to dispose later.
