Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Uncledrywall Better quality than I anticipated. Has already weathered some heavy storms.
I assembled this in two full days. I recruited my wife on occasion to provide a second set of hands. You do have to drill quite a few holes, so a good drill and cordless screwdriver are a must. The instructions are fair but complete. If you are handy and mechanically inclined you should not have a problem. If you have a problem assembling IKEA furniture then you should hire a professional. The kit includes all the hardware and good quality caulking (you use lots of it during assembly). I improved on the kit by adding aluminum downspouts, purchased from Home Depot of course!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sal Just what I imagined!
Although in some areas the printed instructions could have been clearer we found the assembly went well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GoRebs Good product but beware!!
Good quality product but 1) Assembly instructions are not too detailed. 2) The post anchors are supposed to be pre-drilled and weren't so I had to drill them. 3) The splice on the facia was too short and caused some confusion. If you are not a "handy man type" then plan on hiring a professional.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dawn Patio Cover was perfect
Patio cover was perfect. Just as described. It was easy to install and we love it. Provides a ton of shade and a place for our kids to play out of the heat which is good because we do not have any trees in our back yard.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kiniggets Keeps the rain off!
I love this Patio cover! It was relatively easy to assemble (really need at least two people). The directions were clear & easy to follow. the only reason i didn't give it a "5" on the overall rating, is because one of the posts arrived with a big dent in it, and it took 2 weeks for a replacement to come. However I am also very satisfied with Home Depot's customer service. they took care of me, and made sure I was happy. I would buy another in a heartbeat (if I had another Patio to cover)! My In laws purchased one exactly like this 48 years ago, and it still looks great! Looking forward to many years of family fun!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mrsixpack Good Deal !
At least a 3 man job to put up. Only found one panel with a 2 inch crack but found it after it was up so not going to change it out, a little sealant will fix it ! Good heavy metal and should stay up in the winds. Instructions need some work and no way to anchor into the ground....cement patio yes...earth NO ! Its 12 foot out from the wall so the heavy metal is perfect, May not need so heavy of metal if only 8 foot but 12 foot I think this is the best option !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NR very sturdy
The directions for assembly were a bit of a challenge but it is a well made product. There were a few of the roof pieces that were dented, I called and explained and they are sending the new ones right away at no cost to me, that is good customer service. It looks nice in the yard and will enjoy having covered area this summer for relaxing and having barbecues

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Edward Poor instructions and quality
This was one of the most frustrating products I have bought from the Home Depot. From the very start, with the poorest of instructions to a total lack of accuracy as to product dimensions, this product was infuriating. Panel lengths varied as much as a half inch from the same box. Wrong size screws caused additional issue later on in the assembly process. No reference to the proper spacing of the support posts. Some brackets came without the so called predrilled hole. This was the second awning I have put up, so I was very confident about the project. It quickly became apparent the first unit I purchased, from another source, was of a much higher quality.
