Hello Victor2.  Welcome to the Community!

I assume the gazebo is this one: LINK
In that case, anchoring hardware is included with this gazebo for mounting either to concrete or to wood.  Composite decking would use the same screws as wood.

Installation instructions can be found here:  LINK

If you prefer, you could use through bolts with nuts and washers instead, but you would purchase them separately.

Thanks Chris for your quick reply. Which option do you think would be stronger and last longer, screwing or using bolts with nuts, because my deck's composite is about 25 years old?

Through bolts with washers will always be stronger than screws for what you are doing.
