I purchased this gazebo in May 2014 and put it up with help from my son and wife. It took about 20 minutes. I also screwed down the legs on my deck. About 3 days later we had winds of about 45 miles per hour and rain that was torrential. This gazebo passed the test with flying colors. I thought it would be blown away and I was surprised that it stayed up. Naturally I will take it down at the end of September, and it should be fine next season. I payed about $125. on sale at Kmart.com. Realistically, if I get 3 seasons, I will be happy.
The top is a thin vinyl canvas and it tore after the second year. I tried to find a replacement and there isn't one. So if you buy this one, remember it will last about 2 years and you have to throw the whole thing away. The basic metal design is very sturdy but I can't use it anymore just because of the ripped top.
We really enjoyed this item for a few days until wind came by and broke the frame in 20 places! the frame is not sturdy at all! very thin
