This product replaced my 13-year old Sunsetter patio awning. It took my son and I about 4 hours to put up (on a wood deck over a sliding glass door). Pros: Sturdy, great-looking, 3 roof supports to insert if expecting heavy snow. (Directions advise removing significant snow periodically to prevent collapse.) Cons: The instructions could have been much clearer! The polycarbonate roof panels seem flimsy (in comparison to the harder side panels), although you can get replacement panels online or at a big box store IF the originals don't hold up. (I didn't have that option with my old Sunsetter canvas, which was discontinued.) Time will tell. A corner cap piece was missing, although it wasn't critical. I plan to buy replacement netting now before it's no longer available. I love how this looks!
Fairly easy assembly with 2 people, BUT the sliding gazebo cover is very flimsy. Final product is not true to photo because it REQUIRES FOR WARRANTY additional supporting beams that are attached on the sides and the CENTER OF the structure, so forget about it looking nice and open in front of the door as pictured above. Will not purchase again...DO NOT RECOMMEND...
Delivery, packaging and instructions very good. Materials and design very good. Engineering is lacking. Half way into the assembly we discovered that the package of 20 bolts for attaching the crossbars to the posts were too short in length to pass through the tube steel construction of the crossbars and engage the threaded inserts in the posts. Wrote/emailed the manufacturer, Bondvast, to ask for longer bolts and was told it would take 4 weeks to ship them to me. This was unacceptable, but left me with no other choice as the bolts are painted and of a design not available in local hardware stores. So, assembly is on hold, which left us very disappointed.
I love this item. It looks beautiful. It is very strong and well put together. took about 4 hours with 2 people to put together. I am very short so much time spent moving a ladder. directions could of been a little clearer on a couple sections but otherwise great product love it
We had bought this to replace a regular canvas gazebo with after 6 years it collapsed after a snow storm this past winter and when I say collapse I mean it took down the entire metal frame. I decided we needed a hard top and we found this one. It only took us one day to assemble and put up with no issues and we are truly enjoying it. this was a great find and couldn't be happier. Friends are asking where I got it and I am selling this bad boy!!!!!
Directions were a little confusing.
Excellent value. Quality exceeded expectations!
