year round hot tub enclosure

Find out how hot tub enclosures allow owners to enjoy their tub any time of the year, no matter the weather.

If you’ve ever wanted to relax with a glass of wine in your hot tub in the middle of a snowstorm, you know how frustrating it can be to have Mother Nature get in the way of your plans. If this scenario sounds all-too-familiar, a hot tub enclosure may be exactly what you need to protect your spa from the elements for year-round enjoyment.

What is a hot tub enclosure?

Just like it sounds, a hot tub enclosure is a partially or fully enclosed structure that will protect a hot tub from inclement weather conditions.

Many suppliers manufacture open hot tub gazebos that provide a roof structure to fit the exact dimensions of your spa. Other hot tub enclosures may include a screened-in gazebo with steps leading up to the hot tub or a fully enclosed spa shelter for the utmost in privacy.

Spa enclosures may be freestanding for use on a back patio or backyard concrete slab to hold larger hot tubs. Some hot tub enclosures may be mounted directly on top of a spa to provide both weather protection and privacy, while taking up less space than a freestanding shelter.

What type of hot tub enclosure is right for your climate?

Hot tub enclosure styles and designs will vary by manufacturer and can be used in a wide range of climates:

  • Glass enclosure: A glass spa enclosure can also be used as a sunroom and provides the advantage of keeping heat in the in the winter and out in the summer; best used in warm to moderately cold climates.
  • Open air lattice enclosure: A basic lattice enclosure will provide shelter atop a hot tub from rain and snow with open-air exposure to the elements; best used in milder climates with four seasons.
  • All wood enclosure: A fully enclosed wood hot tub shelter is constructed from weather resistant materials; best used year-round in cold climates.
What upkeep do hot tub enclosures need?

A hot tub enclosure will require regular cleaning and maintenance to wipe down bacteria and moisture that may have accumulated after soaking in a spa. A fully enclosed hot tub shelter is even more likely to gather condensation that could corrupt materials over the long term; it’s recommended to wipe down and dry a spa enclosure after every use.

Even when used year-round, a hot tub enclosure should be properly ventilated to prevent steam and moisture from warping building materials. Ventilating a fully enclosed spa shelter after each use will keep mold and mildew from forming in a damp, contained environment.

A lawyer never retires. So I would just say that I am not as active as I used to be. Now I simply dedicate myself to fishing, my hobby, and my grandchildren. For Business Finance News I write about legal aspects of mortgage policies, mostly regarding the rights of policyholders. I also have articles about personal injuries.

DISCLAIMER

A personal loan is a medium term loan with a fixed interest rate that is repaid in equal monthly payments and it's usually limited to 24 months. Loan offers and eligibility depend on your individual credit profile. Our lenders can help you obtain as much as $3,000 depending on the lender, your state and your financial situation.

The owner and operator of businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and is not involved into making credit decisions associated with lending or making loan offers. Instead, the website is designed only for a matching service, which enables the users contact with the lenders and third parties. The website does not charge any fees for its service, nor does it oblige any user to initiate contact with any of the lenders or third parties or accept any loan product or service offered by the lenders. All the data concerning personal loan products and the industry is presented on the website for information purposes only.

Businessfinancenews.com does not endorse any particular lender, nor does it represent or is responsible for the actions or inactions of the lenders. Businessfinancenews.com does not collect, store or has access to the information regarding the fees and charges associated with the contacting lenders and/or any loan products. Online personal loans are not available in all the states. Not all the lenders in the network can provide the loans up to $3,000. Businessfinancenews.com cannot guarantee that the user of the website will be approved by any lender or for any loan product, will be matched with a lender, or if matched, will receive a personal loan offer on the terms requested in the online form. The lenders may need to perform credit check via one or more credit bureaus, including but not limited to major credit bureaus in order to determine credit reliability and the scopes of credit products to offer. The lenders in the network may need to perform additional verifications, including but not limited to social security number, driver license number, national ID or other identification documents. The terms and scopes of loan products vary from lender to lender and can depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the state of residence and credit standing of the applicant, as well as the terms determined by each lender individually. 

APR REPRESENTATIVE

APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is the loan rate calculated for the annual term. Since businessfinancenews.com is not a lender and has no information regarding the terms and other details of personal loan products offered by lenders individually, businessfinancenews.com cannot provide the exact APR charged for any loan product offered by the lenders. The APRs greatly vary from lender to lender, state to state and depend on numerous factors, including but not limited to the credit standing of an applicant. Additional charges associated with the loan offer, including but not limited to origination fees, late payment, non-payment charges and penalties, as well as non-financial actions, such as late payment reporting and debt collection actions, may be applied by the lenders. These financial and non-financial actions have nothing to do with businessfinancenews.com, and businessfinancenews.com has no information regaining whatsoever actions may be taken by the lenders. All the financial and non-financial charges and actions are to be disclosed in any particular loan agreement in a clear and transparent manner. The APR is calculated as the annual charge and is not a financial charge for a personal loan product. 

Late Payment Implications

It is highly recommended to contact the lender if late payment is expected or considered possible. In this case, late payment fees and charges may be implied. Federal and state regulations are determined for the cases of late payment and may vary from case to case. All the details concerning the procedures and costs associated with late payment are disclosed in loan agreement and should be reviewed prior to signing any related document. 

Non-payment Implications

Financial and non-financial penalties may be implied in cases of non-payment or missed payment. Fees and other financial charges for late payment are to be disclosed in loan agreement. Additional actions related to non-payment, such as renewals, may be implied upon given consent. The terms of renewal are to be disclosed in each loan agreement individually. Additional charges and fees associated with renewal may be applied. 

Debt collection practices and other related procedures may be performed. All the actions related to these practices are adjusted to Fair Debt Collection Practices Act regulations and other applicable federal and state laws in order to protect consumers from unfair lending and negative borrowing experience. The majority of lenders do not refer to outside collection agencies and attempt to collect the debt via in-house means. 

Non-payment and late payment may have negative impact on the borrowers’ credit standing and downgrade their credit scores, as the lenders may report delinquency to credit bureaus, including but not limited to Equifax, Transunion, and Experian. In this case the results of non-payment and late payment may be recorded and remain in credit reports for the determined amount of time.
