I live in a bit of a wind-tunnel area and purchased this Sojag Genova Hard Top Gazebo after losing 2 fabric gazebos to the wind. The gazebo kit arrived quickly and in great condition. I hired 3 a crew of three to install (2 is minimum). Assembly time from beginning to end (including cleanup) was 6 hours. The kit includes extra parts...very helpful. A few of the roof panel holes didn't precisely line up with the roof frame holes but required only a little muscle, not re-drilling. Everything else in the assembly process went smoothly. I ordered a 10X12" gazebo. Be aware that the 10x12' size reflects the roof dimension.
So far, the gazebo has easily withstood several 30 mph sustained wind episodes. The diagonal supports from legs to roof frame add lots of strength to the structure. Barring a stray meteor or massive hurricane (unlikely in So Cal), the gazebo will hold up since it is securely anchored in the wood deck. No roof leaks during some heavy rainfall. For those in a wetter climate, you might consider Sojag models that feature rain gutters. The netting is very good quality and I love the double-track hook system for netting and privacy panels. I suggest you purchase additional panel hooks from Sojag since there is no other way to hang netting privacy panels. The sun really heats up the metal roof but the roof is high so heat doesn't radiate down. Overall, the Sojag is a well-made and well-designed product. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Outstanding product, I put it up myself and only needed a second person for 2 parts. Quality product. Ordering was simple, product came earlier than expected but that was ok since the shipping company called and we arranged a convenient time for delivery.product arrived with no damage and no missing parts, prior to purchasing I did make a call to find out about shipping and they were extremely helpful and answered the phone right away.
looks as elegant as the picture! Great customer service on questions answered before purchase as well!
