After reading many reviews of other gazebos, I wasn't sure how complicated it would be. It took two men 3 hours to put together (not counting breaks)with power tools. 2 holes were stripped and one roof panel weld broke from factory. Honestly, I expected longer with more issues. I'm trying to contact the company about the roof panel now, but have been put on hold for longer than 10 minutes. Overall, it looks beautiful! The screen does not stay anchored to the legs so it does blow in a great deal. I'll find a way to fix that, maybe with magnets.
We bought this one about 3 years ago. Loved it until 1st hail storm. Tried to replace the panels and company wants 150 for 1 panel or 500.00 for all news panels. It would be a good product it they would come up with something other then the CHEAP panels. The gazebo itself is very sturdy and has been through alot of wind storms.
On leg broke and the entire thing fell, breaking the window. Very disappointing
The gazebo itself is nice but the netting is cheap very thin compared to some of the others.
Looks like it's going to be fabulous, but like others, we don't have the instruction manual to set it up. Can that be sent to me?
Even smallish hail puts holes in the top of panel which then allows materials into the tubes in panels. Then they start splitting. 3 years in and considering replacing panels. Read other review that said panels from manufacturer cost a $500.00. This is too much if the unit only costs 700.00. I am considering making my own panels out of a light would or laminate.
Small pea sized hail destroyed the fragile poly carbonate top. The panels are now full of BB (1/8")sized holes in the top. If you have any chance of hail in your area don't waste your money. Poly carbonate panels do not really offer much shade, the heat and suns rays still come thru. It did hold up with this years snow including a 26" storm. (Upstate NY) I did clear the snow off during the storm.
