I have had it over ten years now
It has been through a few big storms, one was a microburst with a wind gust of 90 MPH that blew the canopy down. Every time I was able to put it back up and just replace the grommets that got ripped out. It doesn't take much of a snow load but I have left it up for three winters with no damage. I would go out and push from the underside to get the snow off it. I never take the framing down, just the cover off after two years. I ended up putting one #6 1/2" self-tapping screw at every slip joint. this holds the framing together so higher winds will not pull the slip joints apart.
- It's easy to set up even by yourself
- I can't really think of any.
