Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zaelok If you are on the fence about umbrella or canopy, this is the way to go
1) good value, looks nice, same (or lower) price as a patio umbrella, but spacious, you can easily put a 7 piece patio set under this canopy
2) with $200 I was not expecting high quality, but this canopy is not bad at all. about 110 lbs, not too heavy but it won't be blow off by breeze
3) regardless that you may not be able to install it by your own, it's easy to put components together.
1) no you cannot do it by yourself, you need at least someone to help you, and ladder is a must,
2) the installation guide does not warn you at the beginning that you need pegs to secure the canopy, so choose where to put it wisely, at least read the installation guide once before you work on it.
3) you need weight bags to secure it

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by wingingaway One storm took it out completely
"Best for use in favorable weather, this is not a permanent structure and should not be used in high wind conditions or in heavy rain." They're not kidding - one storm (just a regular thunderstorm, not a hurricane or anything) took out the whole thing. Amazingly, the cover didn't rip, but six of the eight roof poles and one of the side panels either bent or broke entirely, and all of the brackets that held the roof poles onto the side panels are twisted and bent. Since no replacement parts are available, it's a total loss. I wouldn't expect this to make it through a tornado or anything, but I am disappointed that it couldn't stand up to a thunderstorm. The instructions say to remove the cover before inclement weather, but it is extremely difficult to take it off and put it back on (especially alone), and that also assumes weather forecasts will be accurate. In short: if you live somewhere where it storms, do not buy.

it took 3-4 hours of focus, pieces are numbered and the exoskelton came together. I would recommend putting a level on the 4 corner posts to ensure proper canvas roof. took a pic of the final product, i have really enjoyed the shade.

This canopy was easy to install, the directions were easy to read and follow. I ended up turning on the radio and taking my time in the sun to assemble this canopy. I had to have my wife come help me with move the four final leg support parts in place, besides that its pretty easy to do yourself. Once we had it installed I added a 303 product to protect the canvas additionally from the southern sun rays and also to repel some more rain. I anchored this down with some simple deck screws and after 2 days of being up we had about 4 days straight of gusty winds and a couple thunderstorms. Our hot tub cover was knocked off the hot tub, but right next that was this canopy - it remained solid and no issues during the entire weather event! I would highly reccomend this to anyone looking to add some easy shade to their deck. Also: it was a big concern for me to be able to walk under the side openings and not smash my head into a pole or support beam, I'm 6'-2" and I can clean the entire structure walking underneath it with about 1" to 2" to spare. Hope this helps anyone looking into this.
Oh BTW the shipping came a week early to the store, woo-hoo!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jleek Totally worth it.
There's no better deal out there than this gazebo. It looks great, was easy to put together and so wonderfully priced. I would have liked other color choices but for $200 you can't beat the deal. We put our poles in pots loaded down with rocks, so we can add flowers around all 4 poles in the next few days. We also made sure the pots have drainage holes, which we covered with a screen. Last we shimmied pieces of wood under each pot to protect the deck. It only took 2 or 3 lazy hours for my husband and I to put this gazebo together. Only thing left to do is add our flowers. I feel this is a quality product that will last at least 5 years with a replacement canopy which can be found at Garden Winds online (Home Depot doesn't carry the replacement canopies at this time). But who knows. Maybe the frame will last even longer than that. Again, well worth the money.

The gazebo came in one box approximately 100 lbs. The pieces were individually wrapped in protective foam wrap. The instructions were easy to follow and it was easy to assemble.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by smiley great for the price
Great for the price I was surpised how sturdy it is. The height also surprised me (made it little difficult to put up) .I was happy to find a gazebo that didnt come with screen or curtains since I dont need in my situation. its not portable &didnt come with carry case. I would highly recomend but you do need atleast 2 people to put up but the instructions were easy yo follow & everything is labeled.The legs in photo didnt look as big as they are so thats a plus.
