Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Gary Good looking Hot Tub Gazebo...
We (Spouse and I) initially put the roof together on sawhorses, this kept it off the ground by 3'. The top parts went together well with little problems and / or adjustments. We did that on first day of construction.
The second day (one week later) we managed to raise the top and install the legs, it really helped having a Kubota tractor with a bucket... once the legs were attached we used planter pot rollers under each leg to be able to move the hole gazebo around. The third day I spent roofing the top, this is were nothing really aligned the way it should have and required an extra amount of work... However, when completed we were happy with the choice and it looks like it will serve our needs... I did spend extra time wiring up one of the legs with a switch and outlet for lighting. All outdoor covers. Doing this before final installation made it all that much easier.

The other reviews are correct about some of the parts not fitting together easily. Following the instructions closely is very important to make the job easier. All the screws and bolts are the same diameter, just the head type and length are different so it's important to pay attention to directions for which screw or bolt to use. The hardware comes labeled very clearly and the instructions and hardware is divided into sections so don't remove the hardware from the labeled packaging until you are doing that section of assembly. Do yourself a favor and get a ratcheting wrench to help with assembly and a cordless screwdriver as there are a lot of screws and bolts to install during assembly. My wife and I put this up by ourselves. To do this with only 2 people means you'll need a ladder, since the instructions tell you to assemble the whole roof while it sits on the ground and then get 6 people to lift it up and get the legs under it. 2 people can do it if you only assemble the roof frame, tip it on 1 end, support the other end with the ladder, attach 2 legs, lit the other end up, support with a ladder and attach the last 2 legs. Then finish the roof standing on the ladder. We had some damaged pieces in our parts, probably from the delivery guy dropping the boxes twice while getting the gazebo from his truck to our garage. The parts come packaged well, in a steel framed reinforced box, but we still ended up with 3 bent roof panels and 1 bent roof frame member. I called Sunjoy, for replacement parts and they said they will ship them out no questions asked. We'll see, as I just called a couple days ago as I'm writing this and the parts haven't arrived yet. I would recommend this gazebo to anyone looking for a hardtop gazebo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Baddog Excellent product with few issues
All of the glitches mentioned in the previous reviews showed up. Had to re-tap one hole, file one opening, etc.This indicated that production is consistent. Instructions also left some things out or the diagrams were wrong or misleading. That said, the boxes arrived with some damage to the packaging but with the parts protected in the packaging and well labled, overall quality is very good, and with a significant sheetmetal and mechanical experience, my wife and I were able to assemble it in about 16 hours. Since we didn't have the 6 men to do the job, we had to use equipment/tools to do the lifting for us. After careful evaluation, we decided to put almost all of the roof on before mounting posts except where we needed lift points for the equipment. Then we simply finished attaching the corner roof panels. We were impressed with the quality and the sturdiness of the pieces and the finished gazebo. If you have some mechanical skill/knowlege and expect the occasional "glitche' and can work thru it, you will be very pleased with this product. Five or six strong guys might make this an easy one day project but connecting the posts is tedious and would call for the lifters to keep things "very" steady while bolts are installed. I would still consider renting a "high Jack" or lift for one side that could handle the post height and let the manpower be shifted to the other end. if you do that three strong men can do it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by dancho Excellent product, but very hard to assemble
This is a very good looking and sturdy gazebo, but it was really hard to assemble. Not only the instructions were not easy to follow in the first place, but there was actually a step missing so we had to improvize. You'll need at least 3 people to help you put this together (the instructions recommend 6 people!) due to the size and weight of the gazebo. It took us a total of 2 days (over 10 hours) from start to finish. Price is also a bit on the higher side, but overall value is good.
