Over the weekend Lowe's had a price drop on a very highly rated, quality gazebo.

I was shopping for gazebos last week, and decided on this one as the best deal, despite being at full price (I used a 10% off lowes.com coupon, as well as my 5% lowes cc discount). The fact that this is now on sale makes it an even better deal.

My father-in-law and I set this up in 6 hours yesterday (the instructions say 90 minutes, total B.S.). It came together rather easily, and looks VERY nice.

FYI I think they only sell this online, but if you have in-store coupons you'd like to use, you can order it in the store.

*Lowe's offers home delivery. It weighs 380 lbs, so take advantage of that option.

**Read the reviews before installation. There are some really good tips about how people put it together.

***You definitely need 4-6 guys to lift the roof onto the pillars...and ideally they're all over 6 feet tall, as the pillars are high.

FIRST POST!!! I hope I helped you guys as much as you all have helped me over the years.

debating between this and the pergola that lowes has for $588. We really need the shade the way our lot is positioned and it has to be ultra windproof. Anyone have this thing ?

for the patio/slab next to the pool?
for the deck over the table?

you know, for the white people that need to get out of the sun Wink

to cover furniture that you have foolishly placed outside.

I have this, highly recommend it. I paid $1100....this is a very good price, have not seen this go on sale before.
I first installed a canvas one which looked cheap. This has a classy look and is sturdy.
Take a look at the pictures.

nice pictures, did you deviate from the install instructions at all? what did you do to secure the posts to the patio ? I am leaning toward getting the pergola because the sun sets drectly at the rear of my house and without any trees it is impossible to get good shade and the pergola has a shade that can be adjusted, but your pictures are making me want to get this.

I don't think it's sturdy enough and worth the money. I got a hexagonal gazebo from Costco (or was it Sams Club) last year that was bigger and stronger for like $1200. My problem with this one is that it doesn't have "fence-like" things connecting the posts to each other on the bottom. I'd expect it to break under heavy wind.

I didn't use the stakes that came with the Gazebo (i think that's mainly if you install it directly on grass/clay). I used concrete wedge anchors to secure the legs to the post.
Look up Item # 76154 on Lowes (I used 5/16" size bolts...had to slightly enlarge holes on the Gazebo base. A 1/4" would fit perfectly...but I wanted something more sturdy)

This gazebo weighs 380 pounds. And as a previous post mentioned, it comes with stakes (for whatever reason). I replaced those with lag bolts and bolted the gazebo to the floor. It also has trusses? that connect each leg to the roof for reinforcement. I can't speak to the quality of what you bought at Sam's (most of the furniture I have purchased from there left things to be desired), but I can promise you that unless you have a tornado this thing isn't going anywhere.

And I also considered a pergola, but the are nearly as expensive (I have no idea why) and don't really provide the kind of shade I was looking for. I found this to be slightly more expensive than those pergolas or large umbrellas, with a lot more coverage and durability. Plus, it's a year round item-no need to take it down in the winter.

What really sold me on it were the reviews, which were uncharacteristically high. And coming from a "do-it-yourselfer" website, that carries more weight with me.

I don't mean to be argumentative, but my concern wasn't so much for this thing flying off during a strong wind, but from collapsing by being pushed from the side. Only 4 posts and I didn't see much reinforcement in the picture.
