Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pooka Great product
Parts fit together perfectly.
Fairly easy to assemble. I am 82 and I needed a little help. Took about a day and half to finish.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DWB77 A great addition to our outdoor entertainment area
Complete installation package was delivered as advertised. Extra bolts, nuts, and washers were included. With the exception of two minor errors in the instructions, installation was not complicated but took some time. Most of the install can easily be done by two people. It was helpful to have four people for installing the poles as this was placed on an existing deck (installation instructions are for a ground location). Added a ceiling fan with light fixture and we have a great addition to our outdoor entertainment area.

I am very happy with it. I thought it was going to be much harder to put together then it was it only took my husband and son about 5 hours total to put it together. I was very impressed with the way it was packed for shipping. The gazebo itself is made really good I don't think I will have a problem with it breaking even with our western NY winters.

I got this Gazebo to replace a canvas one. I got tired of replacing the canvas every 3 years, and removing it in winter, and setting back up in summer. I wanted a more permanent solution.
This Gazebo looks beautiful once assembled, looks well made, and sturdy. It also throws a lot more shade than the traditional square gazebos do.
It's very heavy, but it's well packaged, with steel cages inside the boxes protecting the contents.
We were able to assemble this with three people. There is a step where, once the roof framework is assembled, it must be lifted to attach the legs. We came up with a trick. We balanced one end of the framework atop a ladder, attached 2 legs, then set it upon those 2 legs and moved the ladder to attach 2 to the other side. Once it's on 4 legs, the last 2 were easy. 2 people can easily lift this framework while a 3rd person positions the ladder!
The bar table, and flower boxes look nice, and add additional structural integrity. This unit has already withstood a few very windy days here with no problems.

After years of having a much less expensive gazebo with a canopy top that had to be replaced EVERY year; I decided to take the plunge and spend some money on something that would be maintenance free.
Before we got it we read all the reviews on the amount of people and time it took to assemble it - I was worried it would never get completely assembled!
Here is our story:
All the parts were in the boxes, so no complaints there.
1 - Strapping 30 year old male who did most of the work.
1 - 54 year old male with bad knees and a bad back who assisted.
And then when it was time to put the top on the legs we recruited a neighbor for about 10 minutes.
Total assembly time with the above labor force was about 5 hours.
We waited until the top was on the legs before we put the panels on the top.
When we lifted the top to put on the legs we rested one of the corners on a ladder, thus eliminating the need for another person.
If you have trouble understanding the directions, it may take you longer to assemble.
Be sure to use the correctly labeled screws as some screws may work somewhere else but then you won't have the correct size for another step when it comes up.
I opted against using the planters as this is on my patio and I have brick planters around the patio.
My less expensive gazebo with the cloth top was 10 x 10 and this is 12 x 14 - makes a big difference and I'm so pleased with the size as well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Charles Just okay
Item was delivered damaged and has missing items/parts for installation. Calling the 800 number is a pain and asking for parts missing is not easy. Please do something about this quickly. It has been 3 weeks and there has been nothing done. I am frustrated at the lack of service to address this. This item is overpriced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dinosaurjunior I woul definitely recommend this product to anyone.
It took about 6 hours to put up with a short woman, a man over 65, and very strong middle aged man. It is pretty easy to put together, looks nice, and is sturdy. Definitely have them deliver it to your home. Instead of lifting the entire top with all the roof panels on it, we fastened the panels closest to the top first, put the partial roof on the legs, then attached the last roof panels (using a ladder).
