A hardtop gazebo provides shelter from the sun and rain, as well as providing a focal point for your backyard, around which you can decorate and furnish. Today we review a 10×12 model made of galvanised steel with a faux copper top. This durable structure will provide comfort in the summer, keeping you and guests cool beneath it while allowing you to enjoy the beautiful weather.
This gazebo is manufactured by Sunjoy in a versatile and timeless design that is low maintenance and easy to clean. Hardtop gazebos have this advantage over clothtop gazebos: you don’t have to make any changes or preparations for winter weather, since the hardtop can handle all of it. Once it is set up in the yard, you won’t have to worry about it. The colour cannot be faded by sun.
This gazebo is the size of an average bedroom, measuring 10×12 feet, so you can comfortably seat at least 6 people beneath it. The exact dimensions are as follows: 144.09” length; 121.26” width; 120.87” height. The addition of a gaebo will add a shady sanctuary to any space, allowing you to take a mini vacation right in your own backyard. in the daytime, it can serve as a quiet spot to read a book, and at night it can serve as a bumpin patio party place. It will be a special place to gather.
The design is very clean, with sharp lines and low-key detail, making it an ideal choice for coordinating with existing patio furniture, landscaping or décor. The copper top gives it a little extra something-something for a designer appearance. Just under the canopy runs a stylish valance for simple elegance. It also features a built-in dual hanging rod system from which you can hang both mosquito netting and privacy curtains. Please note you will have to purchase the curtains and This gazebo is equipped with everything you need to create a shaded sanctuary in your backyard, patio or poolside.

It features a dashing faux copper roof for extra design points, as well as sturdy and safe steel and aluminum construction. The 100% polyester fabric can tolerate high summer temperatures and withstand UV rays without fading. The vented, two-tiered hardtop canopy provides stability in windy conditions, as wind goes right through the top, instead of under the canopy and thereby lifting the gazebo.

Sunjoy reminds the user that the gazboe does not provide 100% protection, as UV rays can still reach you by reflecting off surrounding surfaces. In the summer you should always wear sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses.
Another great feature is that this gazebo can withstand up to 300 pounds of snow. Snow becomes very heavy once accumulated on a surface. Despite its mega strength, we recommend removing snow when it begins to pile up. You can do this by sweeping excess snow off the canopy. Sunjoy reminds the user that while the canopy can withstand 300 pounds of snow, that is dispersed weight. It cannot hold a 300 pound person, so Sunjoy does not recommend using the gazebo a ladder to trim tall bushes, for example.
The gazebo poles are black in colour, and they are hollow. While you will certainly want to anchor the posts down, some opt for filling the posts with sand or pea gravel for additional stability. You can do this if you choose, but keep in mind that any modifications will void the warranty. The gazebo kit includes stakes to anchor it to the ground/your patio.
There is some assembly required upon receiving the item. To make this process easier and faster, we recommend taking out all hardware and pieces and laying them out. Make sure everything is in place before you begin to put it together; staying organised will help speed the job along. You will need the occasional help of a second pair of hands, but can have the gazebo assembled in one to two days (8-12 hours total).
The Sunjoy 10×12 galvanised steel hardtop gazebo sells for around $1200 and comes with a 12-month limited warranty.
