Luca Collection Gazebo
Average quality overall
Looks very nice. I like how the corners have a bit of a modern look. After being up for one summer, it does have some fading and a bit of rust where the screws go in, but not too bad. We had to really drill it in to the ground since it's not the sturdiest. It will probably be ok for another year or two.

Worst Purchase Ever
Purchased this beautiful gazebo early summer. It was gone by fall. Manitoba wind is too much for this set up. The welds snapped one by one during a windy day. Left the columns over winter and the remaining undamaged welds along the bottom fences had rusted. So as much as it is rust resistant, the welds are not. I doubt it would have made it two years regardless of wind. A shame, as it was a beautiful gazebo. I suggest spending a little more and trying a hardtop. Canvas canopies just flex and billow too much for the welds on this one.
It's a lot of money and work building it to last a season. *sad face

Reasonably Good Gazebo
I spent the better part of a day assembling this Gazebo with only a bit of help from my spouse when it cam time to put the top up. Overall, it looks great & fit on our deck exactly. One drawback that I found was that even though I sprayed the roof and walls with a waterproofing/ UV protectant, the material was pretty much faded/rotted away by the end of the season. I had bolted the corner-posts through my deck, so I never had much trouble with wind damage, however we got caught by an unexpected early dump of heavy, wet snow and the roof collapsed, necessitating the purchase of another unit the following spring (how's that for faith in a product?). Last fall we managed to get all the fabric off before the snow came. This spring we sold the house and have yet to re-assemble the Gazebo at our new residence but I am not expecting a problem with it, as I ended up making small marks on the walls and netting with a permanent marker as to which was on the short & long sides before we packed it away last fall.

Garbage, waste of money
Bought the gazebo end of May, assembled it end of June. had a wind storm in October that snapped a side bar completely off from the side post.. A few days later,before we could dissassemble, the temperature dropped and a few inches of powdery snow with it , all of the remaining bars buckled or broke completely, the entire gazebo collapsed.and is now in the garbage as Sunjoy wont warranty their garbage products due to weather related damage. what a total waste of money!! save your money. when we were taking the structure down, I was able to bend the metal rods in half with very little effort ( I am 5'2" and 120 lbs not not a big person)

My Dad and my 13 yr old nephew and myself assembled this is in 3.5 hours, and while a few moments left us scratching our heads we got it all together and it looks fantastic on my deck. Don't lose any screws or things like that cause they give you the exact amount. I have the gazebo on my deck and have fastened it to three of the sides of deck with straps and seems like it's on there pretty good. understand if someone other people fasten it down with the few screws on the fence bits it probably could come up in a good wind, so use your head and look for other ways to holding it down. I understand 90% of people usually ony write reviews if they have something bad to say about a product, but I can say that it looks great, was pretty easy going with the assembly, and hopefully I've done enough to keep it in place when the next storm comes our way, and if it does then i'll blame myself. The roof bit and the walls have a tag on them with Sunjoy's phone number so that makes it pretty obvious where to go if I need a new canapy, netting or walls. Anyways my wife and I like and we think it looks great.

Don't waste your money
Had this gazebo up for about 2 weeks, had a strong wind come up and it snapped one of the support bars right off. Wished I'd read the reviews before buying this as they all reported the same thing, it's flimsy and won't make through any kind of strong wind. it looked nice for the two weeks, very disappointed in this product, a big waste of money.

Don't Waste Your Time and Money
Lasted one week. Had a wind storm one day while I was at work and literally came home to a mass of twisted metal. Every welded joint was broken and bolts were broken. It is now residing in the garage dump. Nothing was salvageable. But it did look nice for one whoe week though!

Don't waste your money
Terrible product , frame was flimsy and blew over in small wind . Gazebo was attached to deck by a flimsy bar at the bottome of the small fences instead of the four corner poles. The scraper that picked it up off my front lawn on garbage day would probably give it a 10/10.

put this up 1 month ago, since then.
1) all four tie backs for solid curtains have broken at bottom, had to re-stitch them.
2)the stitching at the zipper for the screen tore apart from bottom up about 12", again we had to re-stitch this.
3)at the bottom corner tie back area of 1 of the solid curtains, we have a rip in the fabric about 12" long.(NOT on a stitch)NOT impressed.
4) I cant believe the rust that has already developed, every where i look i see rust somewhere.
We have had moderate wind in my area, I'm very afraid as to what is going to happen when we get our first thunder storm. this gazebo is firmly installed on my concrete patio with tapcons.
the frame seems solid so far, just rusting.
I'm very disappointed with the fabric.
If a C.T rep reads this, I'd like to know if I can return only the fabric materials for an exchange at the end of the summer. probably wont be much left of it, but i will not put it back on the next year.
I'm actually getting more angry as I write.

Worst Purchase Ever
I assembled this product on a Tuesday and on Saturday a small amount of came through and broke it, the welds holding the ends of the rods for the screen and privacy curtain let go, this wind was only around 15kms. I have never seen a gazebo break in so little wind. I do not recommend this product to any one, stay away from it.
