Crawford Collection Gazebo
Crawford Gazebo 8'x8'
I LOVE this product! It took less than 3 hours to put together (we permanently put it into our patio). It cools off the patio perfectly, and with the extra netting we purchased (comes with a 'sun-curtain'), it's never too 'hot' to sit outside! (Netting # 88-1088-8). Holds up very well in 'windy' conditions.
I would highly recommend this beautiful Gazebo to anyone who would like to have shade and privacy in a small area. Perfect for keeping bugs out. I only wish the canvas top were 'waterproof' for heavier rains. Even if you get 'one' summer out of the netting OR the canvas top, it's well worth the money!! You will need to buy rust-paint to go over the railing. It does show small amount of rust, but a small price to pay for the 'big picture'!

You get what you pay for
This gazebo serves it's purpose, it will give you a bit of shade to under while you're outside on those hot sunny days. Just like the past reviews though, I must admit that you get what you pay for. The set up was easy but the frame and canopy haven't stood up to the weather very well even though we remove the canopy every time we're expecting any sort of wind. We are lucky to have gotten two summers out of it and next year I will absolutely make sure I buy one of a bit higher quality.

simple yet elegant
this product was easy to set up by myself with little assistance from my child instead of a second adult. it looks great in my yard and is so nice to sit under whether its raining or the sun is shining.

replacement canopy for crawford collection gazebo
I purchased the gazebo last year. Left it up for the winter (screwed the frame into the deck) and survived. I unfortunately cannot find a replacement canopy for this gazebo and Canadian Tire does not carry the size ( atleast |I couldn't find, perhaps someone else was lucky?) Others stores do not carry 8by 8 canpoy...:(

Quite cheap materials
Not a horrible gazebo, but for the price you get what you pay for. Does not hold up well in windy conditions, seems very flimsy

cosy getaway gazebo
My purchased this gazebo and the netting that surrounds it for my mother for a Mother's Day gift she loves it .It's her own little getaway from neighbours, sun and bugs. She likes to sit in there to have have her coffee or tea or just relaxed and listen to the birds and her surroundings. .

I like the size of this gazebo because our deck is 9 feet wide, but the frame is very flimsy. We got this gazebo as a gift last year, and had it up for about a month before we had to take it down for winter. As we did with our last gazebo we left the frame up for the winter. I thought the frame was too light and flimsy to do this, but my husband assured me it would be ok. The frame was very light like it was made out of plastic instead of steel. Well turns out I was correct, snow came off the roof and completely flattened the top of the frame, and it wasn't that much snow, that's just how light and flimsy the frame of this gazebo is. I would not recommend it to anyone, unless you can't find one this size anywhere else. If you have to go to the hassle of taking down the frame for the winter it's not worth it at all. Also it started to rust the second day we had it, as soon as it rained the first time. Rust poured out the seams of the metal and leaked into a puddle on the deck, which made a stain that cannot be removed.

Nice small canopy.
I've had mine for three seasons now and just put it away for the winter. It is a bit faded but otherwise still in perfect condition. I leave the frame up all winter and just spray a bit of WD40 in the spring. Excellent value for the money.

Verdict still out
I was fortunate to buy the gazebo during the end of season clearance but I've had trouble getting both canopies on the frame. The large one is stretched so tight I really have fears of it snapping at any time, and the smaller one I can't get over one corner at all.
It may be one of those situations where I've just missed something very basic; but when the instructions just say "put canopy onto the frame" you don't really have a lot to go by.
Otherwise... I love the look of it!
