Was very excited to receive this gazebo. It was shipped quickly and honestly did NOT take 5 hours to put together as the instructions mention (which was a total plus!) The metal framing though is concerning, as it seems a bit flimsy, so we'll see if this can stand the test of rain, and a little wind this summer. Very nice gazebo, don't get me wrong, but to be honest, this was a bit expensive for what it is and I am worried that the first rain we get will knock this over.
Metal is weak and bends. Canvas is weak. Canvas doesn't fit well and lots of pressure on seams. Definitely not work $**** much less the $*** I am very disappointed The size is great, but don't expect it to last more than one season. Will not buy again!
Bought this and spent the day putting it togeather per the instructions. And the very same night one of the velcrow wraps came right off the bug curtain while closeing it up to keep the bugs out the very same night. needle and thread later we moved on. till the very first wind. The top metal braces that hold the sides and roof togeather were destroyed like butter. This china metal is paper thin and had no chance with any type of gust or wind burst. Poor design, Poor materal, Poor craftsmenship. I will be reading more on China vs American made. $XXX wasted.
You can never tell by pictures but this is every bit as beautiful as it looks. It's big, classy, and fairly solid given its relatively low price. I don't know about putting it together as we paid our handymay to do that but he managed it in a day, including putting the curtains on. It's a perfect addition to our new patio
