Long story short. I got this gazebo to put over our 10x10 patio. We are eventually going to put a permanent one in a year or so, so this gazebo will serve as a temporary cover. But after having it up for a week, I must report that it is a super addition to our back yard & renovated exterior. I've been looking for a option for our patio for quite some time. But fabric gazebos were either too expensive or too cheap & flimsy. My neighbor got one that only lasted one year. Well, we do have harsh weather here (heat, hurricanes, high wind, etc.), so no surprising it didn't last. But after reading the comments about other people liking their gazebo & its quality, I bought this one. Now I also add: great product for the price. Though the fabric & poles are not high end, they are sturdy. The vent on the top allows for wind to flow out of the gazebo so it will not take flight. The gazebo fared very well in recent storms & wind we had, even without it being tied or screwed down. But I do recommend you tack it down at some point. I am very pleased about this because our old cover kept getting blown off its hooks in the same type of wind. But my fears have subsided seeing this gazebo do well in medium winds. I will definitely screw it down before hurricane season. As others have said, you will need two people to put it together. It just goes quicker & easier with two people. Also take your time. We made mistakes when we tried to take shortcuts. And while you can put the gazebo together with the tool they include, it goes faster when two people each have set of ratchets & such. But overall, it only took is about an hour & a half to put it together. And it looks beautiful. Yep, as others have said, wish there were a spare cover I could buy for when this cover gets dilapidated, which hopefully will be a long time from now. I luv this gazebo!!
