It does take about five hours to put together but well worth it.This gazebo is like adding a room to the back of your house.Very sturdy and well made.
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.
