I have this gazebo on my back patio that I’ve had for 5 or 6 years now and it has some wear and tear to say the least. The old plastic roof panels got sun-bleached and brittle. A hail storm put a zillion holes in the panels so i had an idea to replace the old plastic panels with wood. It took 7 sheets of 1/4″ plywood and a gallon of waterproofing stain but it came out looking great! It cost me under $200 for this project. A new set of plastic panels would have run over $400. Only time will tell how well they hold up in the South Mississippi sun and storms… But, I’m pretty sure the hail won’t break through these!
