Lots of Work, But a Great Gazebo Kit with Clear Instructions!
Although it took my son and me 9 hours over 2 days to assemble the gazebo, I can only praise the kit and instructions. All the pieces and hardware were clearly labeled, and the "IKEA"-style instructions were clear and well-thought-out.
The pieces were accurately milled, and we only made one small mistake that we had to correct. The end result is exactly what my wife wanted. I would recommend this kit to anyone; the price-to-value ratio is excellent.

The Best Gazebo I've Ever Bought!
I greatly appreciate the double roof feature of the gazebo, as it effectively allows hot air to escape through the roof, creating a consistently comfortable and enjoyable sitting area. The delightful scent of fresh cedar wood adds to the experience, making it feel like being surrounded by a cedar forest.
Upon completing the assembly process, I am impressed with the sturdiness and strength of the gazebo. It provides a solid structure that gives me confidence in its durability. Additionally, it's worth mentioning that you don't even need to secure it to the patio with bolts, further simplifying the setup process.

Easy to Build and a Great Value!
It's amazing what they can fit into such a small-footprint shipping box! While the total weight was over 600 lbs, the boxes unpack easily for convenient transport to the build site. My wife and I built the wood frame in one day, and then I completed the rest by myself over a couple more afternoons.
If you can assemble IKEA furniture, you can build a SunJoy gazebo! No special tools or skills are needed.
The gazebo looks sharp, and when decorated with lights, plants, and furniture, it becomes a true backyard oasis. Since we live in a windy area, I bolted the floor joists to our concrete patio, and I will be DIYing a solution to reinforce the upper frame with Simpson Strong Ties.
Overall, it's a great product, especially for those who may not be inclined or skilled enough to tackle a full DIY pergola or gazebo build.

Long Day, Have Friends to Assemble.
The garage is a first come first serve, so needed a carport to protect whoever loses for the day. I was looking into another model from Sunjoy sold through a large box store, but after looking at their other products decided on Autocove due to more headroom at the entrance due to the angled front rafter. The other model went straight across.
My driveway pad angles down in 2 directions, so I had to DIY footers to make It level. Used 12” concrete form tubes, QK5000, 4 little vertical rebars in each piling drilled into the exiting pad, and 2 concrete bond agents. Used Laser level from the highest point to know how tall each needed to be. Added 1x6 black stained slats which are NOT part of the product. Also used different 6x6 base mounts that only needed 1 big 5/8 hole drilled into concrete instead of 4 each pillar.
The hardest part of my overall project was drilling holes into existing concrete. You will be over-installing bolts by the time you are done, but straight forward. The other reviewer’s video showing assembly (slowed way down!) was very helpful.
Great Carport for the price and not hard to do. I spent more time on the concrete footings my application needed than the carport build.

Perfect for Our Hot Tub
I have been searching for a quality gazebo that would fit over our hot tub and fit in the area without intruding on the walk area and the end of the patio. I looked at all the sites and watched Costco, Home Depot, and Lowes for good deals. Nothing ever appeared to be quality for the cost. I really wanted wood and metal and rectangular in shape.
I just happen to be searching YouTube and came across the channel BYOT, DIY One Day Gazebo. Once I saw this video this was exactly what I was looking for to the T. I ordered it a couple of days later after reading more reviews and doing research on SunJoy as I never heard of them. I was convinced by others and the video that this was the right choice.
I received my pallet in a couple of weeks exactly when they said it would arrive. Well packed for efficiency kind of Ikea-like, however, the quality of the materials was outstanding so don't let the packing discourage you. It was very smartly done to get this efficiently to you.
The build went fast for me, while BYOT did it one day, well we had temperatures near 100 and high 90s for days so in about 3 evenings while cooler we put it together. Watching the video was extremely helpful to prepare for the build. Laying out all the parts first really helped so I encourage it.
Instructions were very easy to follow, I did opt for real wrenches vs the ones in the package for stability in assembly. Make sure to not overtighten things, always go snug so you do not damage the wood or metal parts.
After 2 months it has stood heavy rain and heavy winds and is doing very well. We changed up and added new lights around the unit using the rails. Now we can enjoy the hot tub when the cold rain comes. I will miss when it snows and hot tubbing it is very nice but I won't miss the cold rain. This purchase is a great investment for sure.

I am very impressed at how easily this went together. It took about 8 hours by myself, having someone help me only twice just to hold one side when attaching the other. I highly recommend you take the time (about an hour) to completely unpack and remove all the items from their plastic wrapping.
It's not really difficult to assemble, but it does take a lot of time. 2 a-frame ladders are a bonus, and a hex bit for your drill will save you time since the last 175 screws (for the roof panels and supports) can be power drilled. Another installation tip would be to not fully tighten the beams until after you layer them together. I used glue in between the beams, secured them with the screws provided, then tightened all the bolts. The finished product looks great and I would recommend this to anyone.

Came in a big box on the back of a lift gate freight truck. Unpacking it and seeing all the pieces was intimidating, there are a lot of parts! It was however easy to put together, I did 99% of the assembly myself and only needed help when lifting the roof frame onto the four corner posts.
The instructions are very easy to follow and all parts and hardware are clearly marked, making it easy to get this together. Holes line up and screws go in easily, no need to wrestle with a part to get the screw into the hole.
I recommend a couple of tools to help with the assembly; a 10mm box-end wrench (ratcheting if you have it), a 10 mm socket and ratchet, and a driver/drill with a socket attachment. The driver with a socket makes connecting parts fast and easy.
When looking at Gazebos I chose this one because it has a metal roof. Where it's on my patio and gets full sun all day I knew that cloth roof would last only a couple of seasons before it needed replacement. This Gazebo exceeds my expectations and it looks like I will get many years out of this one.

Stunning & Sturdy Gazebo!
We had several soft top/fabric top gazebos in our backyard over the years and each of them was destroyed by the weather. So we decided to try this Sunjoy 13x13 Hardtop Octagon Gazebo and we are so super excited and pleased with the product. Not only is it beautiful it is very strong and sturdy!
My husband and I are not "handy" people but we took our time and assembled the gazebo in a day and a half. We are so proud of our work but it was really easy to follow the instructions.
Also, it's great that extra nuts & bolts are included because we dropped a few in the grass. We are very happy with this Gazebo and expect to enjoy it with our family and friends for years to come!

A Great Addition to Our Home!
We are all enjoying this grill gazebo! I like that the roof is higher than the typical grill gazebos I’ve seen in the store, perfect for when the smoker and grill are going at the same time.
The width is cozy with plenty of room for our smoker, grill, and also our griddle. The mini tables on both sides are very sturdy. I’ve loaded them down a few times with spices, some glass pans, and a few drinks with them holding strong! The hook above I haven’t used it yet, but we have tested its durability and it held well. I like that the tie-downs that hold this in place are hidden under the feet, no worries of my kid tripping over the corners.
The instructions are detailed allowing for simple installation. This does come with everything needed including tools, however, it’ll be a much smoother process if you have your own ratchet & socket set.
Overall, I’m very happy with this grill gazebo. It’s a classic look that pairs well with any backyard decor. It’s durable, sturdy, and holds strong against windy weather. That being said, this will need 2 people to move it if you need relocation. It’s heavy!

We are so excited to have this huge Gazebo from SunJoy! It's humungous! Every side has two different zippered close walls, one is mosquito netting and the second is a privacy canvas that can be zipped close all four walls or none or one or two. Totally your choice.
Each corner post has two lights on them that face the outside of the gazebo which is nice because it keeps insects away from the inside. Also, a built-in blue tooth speaker which I haven't used.
My husband and I love sitting in it in the evening! Also, it really was quite easy for him and me to put it together.
