Quick delivery, excellent protective packaging, clearly counted out nuts and bolts supplied, all parts were labelled, so we could easily put the Aluminum outdoor retractable canopy/pergola together. Step by step instructions were well illustrated, however 2 items should have been explained better in a "planning stage- things to consider". I had to redo the B main frame beam, which is the side that holds the stationary canopy, and forgot to attach brackets to beam C, which prevents the canopy from rolling back, when you want full shade. I also looked at the video, which made it clearer as to how it how to put the canvas shade on and what it should look like. Wish they had a good video of the whole set-up. It's like putting together an erector set, it was fun. My husband and I did it ourselves. We took our time. It helped having level ground, in our case cement. We have not bolted it down yet, still debating on how to proceed with securing the base. It is heavy and sturdy enough to stand on its own, here in southern california without heavy winds. Also, I am wondering how to protect the canvas in rain. I think it is quite a chore to remove and put it back on.
