Overall the gazebo is value for money compared to other prices online this reflects the quality of the design like anything to buy you pay for what you get. The most important things for the non experience joiner is that the instructions are not very clear or detailed just highlighting the key stages in erecting the gazebo and it's not a one man job. They provide shingles within the price which is really good and supply more than enough again no instructions to install. The full gazebo took two days to fully complete this included concreting the post fixings. 7/10 on product just for the price and looks the part when complete.
Tuin reply: Thank you for your review. We are sorry you have had problems with your install. We do send additional instructions with your order confirmation. Please see these advice pages referenced that assist with these aspects if the plans supplied or the instructions on the shingles packaging are not enough:

We will endeavour to make these links clearer on future order confirmations and the product pages.

We are pleased to hear the building is value for money when complete.

Positive stuff>>>The Gazebo looks good and everyone who sees it likes what we have done. It's stood up to the recent heavy winds and rain, a good tester. The Tuin's communication was good and the delivery was on time.

Negative stuff>>> Limited instructions supplied with the package. There's no detail about building the roof, and as the roof panels were randomly packaged with no identification makings. We decided to use the roof shingles. To be honest if you haven't laid shingles like this before I recommend you review the IKO website as the finishing and ridges can be tricky. I know that this is a relatively simple fabrication however a few hours spent improving the instructions, marking components, checking that they are all finished and supplying better fixings would be a significant help.

This is a very attractive Gazebo and does represent good value for money. However i do have some negative feedback regarding the manufacture of the roof. I feel the two 8 sided blocks which are the pivotal strength parts of the roof should be better made with tapered slots for the roof trusses to be located in. The addition of pre drilling of the trusses and the 8 sided blocks would add to the strength and ease of making and fixing the trusses to the main frame. Further if all the trusses were "notched" at their frame location points this would be useful, not just the four corner trusses. I do appreciate my thoughts would add to the manufacturing costs but with the economies of scale this would probably only add a few pounds and undoubtedly add to the quality of the gazebo and the strength of the roof.
