My son and I assembled the gazebo in 5 Hrs. We have had heavy rains and winds and it handled it with flying colors. We have it mounted over the sliding door that leads to the back yard. The front right post came with a little dent in it and after a call to the manufacture a brand new one showed up in a few days. What service. I wish it was 12x12. A extra two feet on the length would make this one of the best around! I would recommend The Grand Resort to anyone.
We put this gazebo up today. It's beautiful and we love it so far. But the directions could use some tweaking. The directions on Page 15 Look like this : STEP 6, 6.1 ????????
I have never had directions that are filled in with question marks before. Luckily my guys are handy and figured it out.
So far working well in the white mountains of AZ have nut put up screens due to high winds here may take other suggestion of building around the frame but hel snow and rain fine .Looks great
I get a lot of compliments on my gazebo. I put it together myself and it took me about 4 hours. The only complaint I have is when it gets windy the solar panels fall out. I'm not sure if I did something wrong or if this is happening with all of them. Otherwise I love it
Bought 2 and put them side by side now have a 10x24 covered patio.
Would be nice if they had an adapter for putting 2 together.
The thing I love the most is the slop of the roof. It keeps rain water from running towards my patio door. It take two people about 5 or 6 hours to assemble, but it is well worth it.
The patio covers looks really nice and not cheap looking. I hired someone to put it together. It took him 6 hours to put together, then he came back the next day to finish attaching it to the house and finish the details. I also had him add lights to each side of the French doors as like in the Sears photo. He didn't use the snow support ground posts because it would take up interior space and it doesn't snow where I am. I haven't had hail yet, so I can comment on if it holds up to hail.
Initial when purchased I had the length and width reversed. I thought the roof extended out from the house 12 ft., but it extends out from the house 10 ft. and is 12ft along the side of the house. I love it though overall.
I saw this 3 years but the cost was too high, so I just ordered a gazebo and made it fit on my deck. Well, the material ripped, it was cumbersome and it worked for the 3 years but instead of ordering a new material top for it, I ordered this. Oh how I wish I would've just ordered this to begin with. It was easy to put together... took me a little longer because I did it by myself (don't recommend - two people would be much quicker and easier). I love this... I have an outdoor room now that I can sit under even when it rains. I highly recommend this if you want an economical way to add an outdoor area. The boxes are cumbersome, but they both fit in my Ford escape. To unload, I just took out all the pieces and grouped them as I would need them. Piece of cake.
Even though these roof panels have a 2 year warranty; beware. Hail damage is excluded and we just had a storm come through and the pea-size hail put holes in the roof panels. It made it through all the snow in the winter so we were very impressed with it but not now. These polycarb panels should NOT have been that brittle after being installed for just 1 year. If I would have posted a review last summer when we first put it up, I would have rated it 5-star, but now I can only give it a 3-star rating, and maybe that's being too generous. We paid about $1200 for this last year and it should have been fully functional for more than 1 year.
Good construction and not too difficult to install -- the instructions could be clearer. A few of the pieces were dented upon arrival.
Took a while to assemble, but well worth it. Looks great, well-made. I am concerned about moisture in the side panels when it rains. I am afraid mildew with deteriorate the panels. Has anyone else had this occur? I don't know if I should seal the open spaces in the corrugation or not.
It will take at least 5 hours to put together. And directions are very easy to follow. Have had many compliments since we put it up. Love the fact that I don't have rain running back towards my house when it rains, like when we had the traditional canopies up on our deck. I can keep the sliding door open even when its raining. Very interested though how its will stand up to any kind of nasty kind of weather. I am hoping well because I just love it.
took about 4 hours to assemble by myself, instruction could be better and some of the assembly steps could be done in advance so you don't have to put parts on the frame with your hands up in the air. the big surprise is extra screws they added to kit for "just in case". one of the polycarbonate panels was fractured so will see if I can get a replacement, Bug net is a joke, mosquito will find a way through the gap about 1/2" where roof meets frame and where netting attached to the frame with hooks, they just fly up and inside the gazebo. If you live in mosquito prone area think of more permanent solution, I will be making screen frames to replace netting
Great instructions - took two people five hours or so to put it up - like clockwork. Immediately brought the temperature down 20 degrees under it! Will give it five stars if it holds up through our Ohio winter like it's supposed to. We live on a corner in a housing plan, and since Saturday when we put it up, someone has stopped their car and asked about it at least once a day.

and well made.
The box containing all the metal parts is too long and flexes during handling, shipment and delivery. As a result the 2 long metal parts marked as C and C1 in the installation instructions were damaged and deformed.
Also the netting that is a standard part of this gazebo should be an optional part since it is not usable in windy areas and it could be quite a nuisance.
This would make more sense if they sold separately the gazebo and the netting as an optional feature. The price without the netting could be much lower. The netting is needed only in places infested by mosquitoes and other bugs.
