We purchased this gazebo about five years ago. It was so nice to have an area with shade because there are not many trees in my back yard and it looked so nice and decorative. Some things that disappointed us were the fact that it rusted after two years. Now we live in Ohio and we tend to get a lot of rain during some seasons and the snow and cold can be harsh so I'm not sure of that had a lot to do with it. I was a little bummed when I saw the rust. Because of the snow we had to take the top cover off the roof before every winter so it didn't get ruined. It still did get some holes in it though despite our efforts to keep it nice. The holes were not big but they still occurred. It was also a good place for spiders to build webs so clear all webs whenever you can. That would happen to anything you place outside though.
