Finally got this gazebo erected. Good thing I bought this from Costco and the company is already going to send me the replacement roof panel that got damaged in transit.
Ugh...I would have put this together myself with a bunch of buddies but it's way too hot in Vegas for that nonsense. Given the complexity of putting this together based on the reviews, I'd rather have just paid to get it done.
However, after hiring these individual from handymanassembly.com to do it, I wish I would have just put it together myself. One of the guys was horrendously unprofessional and aggressive. His helper was a lot nicer and much more respectful to the needs of the customer. It took them 2 days to put it all together because of the heat. There was also zero communication between the dispatch center and the actual installers. They could have started at 6am like I wanted and also brought the Tapcon concrete anchors with them prior. I also hate the fact that I asked for an installer that had put this specific unit together before, but NOPE! I hope that poorly run company burns for all I care.
Despite all of that garbage, the gazebo is actually quite nice when finally completed. It's hot as hell in there and feels a bit like an oven since the structure is all metal. Still don't regret it one bit since it looks fantastic.
Now on to installing a ceiling fan, purchasing the privacy curtains and buying furniture for this new relaxing space. I'll wait for the wife before making any of those decisions 😛
