This is a great gazebo!! However the directions are off, but knowing that you should print the new ones. The main pole holes need to be on the outside do the canopy can be attached, it's the single hole that looks out of place. This is sturdy and it's rained almost everyday since we put it up and no water got through... Plus with Sears.com online price match, this was a great price!!
HAD THIS CANOPY FOR 2 SUMMERS PURCHASED IT IN 2013. IN THE FALL WE TAKE IT DOWN. THE 1st SUMMER IT RIPPED AT THE SEAMS IN THE CORNERS. THIS SUMMER IT WAS RIPPED AT EVERY SEAM ALONG THE VELCRO TIE DOWNS. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS CANOPY.
Very easy to damage with weather, very flimsy, honestly, i feel that I paid to much for something cheap.
Excellent gazebo, more then met my expectations. The material is made of good steel. I really love the fact that it he frame is mainly uses bolts to secure the parts. I can see this lasting me a long time
Ok,I know for the money paid for this I shouldn't expect much but as I was putting the gazebo together, I noticed the seams are not reinforced, just one row of stitching. There is even a place here the seam is already coming apart. What would happen if this is in a summer thunderstorm. It went together rather easily, you do need to make sure the holes in the long poles are pointing out or the hooks to support the top have nothing to connect to. I would not buy this gazebo, it will not last one windy thunderstorm the way it is made.
I would give this item a zero if it was an option. I have had other of these types of gazebos before, would have expected more from sears!
This is a good product except for the zips. They have all failed within a few months. Also the net screens rip easily. The fame is sturdy and it is bright and airy.
