" ...  And it's a small one so far, but it's the fraying on the stitching along the zippers.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The four corner pieces are well constructed and heavy, the rest of the frame is flimsy, cheap aluminum that bends very easily! ... The powdered coat/paint flakes off easily, in addition, I noticed shoddy welding points on some of the joints.  ...  "
comment
" ...  But if it rains through the night, water will really build up, which has caused all the corners to tear & make holes. ... The frame is also flimsy & is rusting at every seam. ... It wasn’t too hard to put together or take apart.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The canopy that came with this gazebo only lasted 4.5 months and it was ripping on all seams around the edges.  ...  "
comment
" ...  drain holes are in the wrong locations and there should be double the holes, also the material ripped in 3 areas after a heavy rain  ...  "
comment
" ...  I attached some Velcro to the canvas and frame to make it more tight and that fixed the problem for now, I don't know how long that will last.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The large corner piece arrived bent.  ...  "
comment
" ...  My parents also have this same cover and were not lucky enough to get to theirs before the wind tore it apart. ... Extremely weak metal, and the canvas material doesn't let water drain.  ...  "

" ...  Rain pools in the top.  ...  "
comment
" ...  After about a week, I noticed that whenever it would rain, water would pool at the edges towards the outer frame and cause the canvas material to stretch. ... I'd have to go push water out of the pooled up areas so it wouldn't tare the canvas.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Called company to replace tent because it ripped from water pressure accumulation.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The canopy is strong but has a hard time with pooling water. ... The canopy was streched and lined up, the poles were all level and still, water was pooling.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Rain collects and then has to be pushed out over the sides, soaking us each time.  ...  "
comment
" ...  When it rain the water builds up and the weight of the water causes tears in the canopy.  ...  "

comment
" ...  We got some 20 mph gusts of wind the other day, and the rods that form the gazebo completely snapped causing the gazebo to buckle and completely destroy it. ... If 20 mph gusts are enough to snap the rods, then you can't trust this gazebo to withstand much of anything.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Everything snaps together, but nothing is very tight.  ...  "

" ...  Assembly was somewhat challenging, several pieces were bent. ... We got some wind and the bended pieces broke.  ...  "

" ...  This replacement gazebo lasted 6 months before it started rusting out terribly. ... By 12 months it was in horrible shape.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have contacted the manufacturer several times concerning replacement parts and the warrenty, being that this collapsed after only TWO WEEKS! ... If that wasn't bad enough, I was then told it would take up to TWO MONTHS before they would arrive! ... Our summers are short (3 months long), so trying to get the canopy back up is now a moot point.  ...  "

" ...  The corner shelves are a great asset, and it does what I wanted it to do, keep flies to a minimum and sun protection.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The shelves in each corner offer a nice place to put candles or small plants, and we even hung a cheap paper light in the middle and strung up some lights around the inside.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Each corner has 4 stake holes. ... I read a comment on here by someone who had a really great idea when it came to the sand bags. ... There is one bag on each corner (each bag has 2 zippered pockets - each pocket holds 2 poland spring water bottles nicely) so 16 water bottles of sand weighing it down. ... I also really like that it has the little corner shelves on each wall.  ...  "
