Steel Canopy Top

The steel canopy top ensures that this hardtop is able to protect you and your guests against heavy rain, sleet, as well as strong winds and the sun’s harmful UV rays.

The double-vented section helps air to escape properly and therefore helps to improve stability in windy conditions.

Hanging Hook

With a product like this, we like to get full use out of it and sometimes that means spending time underneath it when it begins to get dark or the temperatures may be soaring.

Well, here’s great news, you can buy a hanging light or fan and place it on the hook which hangs down from the center of the roof which is perfect wherever you are sat inside this shelter.

Easily Screwed Down

If you wish to make your gazebo more sturdy then the leg base has pre-drilled holes where you can screw the frame legs into a hard surface such as a patio, decking or concrete.

This will ensure it is much better prepared to stand up to harsh weather conditions.

Very Durable

As mentioned previously, the frame is powder coated which prevents rusting and therefore helps to protect the steel parts of this product to prevent cracking and ultimately snapping of the metal frame parts.

The powder coating is a very important aspect to preserve the frame and is widely used throughout the outdoor shelter industry.

Dual Curtain Rods

There are 2 tracks which enable the use of mosquito netting, screen and curtains.  However, please be aware that with this product the curtains or nets are not provided but they can be bought separately.

Pros and cons

  • Very durable
  • Full waterproof
  • Good value
  • Can be screwed down
  • Strong & sturdy
  • Curtains & netting not provided

Sunjoy 10×12 Hardtop with Bay Windows

This hardtop with bay windows is quite a unique product and to be honest there are not many hardtop gazebos with bay windows available to buy on the market.

When we first clapped eyes on it, we actually thought what a great idea and how much classier it makes this product look.large hard top

To me, the windows really do add a touch of class whilst also providing extra strength to the canopy section and protection to the curtains when they aren’t in use.

Similar to most other types of this product, the frame is powder coated to prevent rusting and add further strength and durability.

As you can see, the polycarbonate top (the apex) allows soft light and air circulation which helps to lighten the inside of the shelter as well as keeping the air fresh and allowing odors or strong breeze to escape.


Lots of different event use

How many backyards have you seen with a hardtop gazebo with bay windows like this?  Exactly, none…

Your unique outdoor enclosure will be the envy of your neighbors and allow you to hold parties, corporate events and even quite family occasions with this stylish and classy gazebo.

Tight weave mosquito netting

Mosquito netting is very important but too many times the manufacturer supplies nets that allow the very small bugs into your canopy.

The bug netting sides supplied with this canopy has a very tight weave and ensures that even the very small bugs are kept away from spoiling your party, lunch or hot tub party.

Manufacturers warranty

To further reassure you just how strong the manufacturer believes their product to be they have provided a 12-month manufacturers warranty.

  • Looks very classy
  • Easy to maintain
  • Mosquito netting included
  • Easy to build
  • None as yet…

The hardtop roof is great at ensuring rainwater runs straight off, however, should you experience snow in your state then it is recommended to not let it build up.

Side railings

The side railings makes this smart gazebo look very classy.  Surprisingly, you don’t see that many gazebos with rails on the market but this one is quite taking.

For those of you that are quite practical… Maybe you want to add a temporary covered bar to your shelter.  If you take a look at one side of the gazebo you’ll notice any opportunity to cut a length of wood that can be laid over 2 sets of rails to provide a bar area.

Pros and cons

  • Powder coated for durability
  • Creates plenty of covered space
  • Fully waterproof steel canopy
  • Will require help constructing it

5 Sunjoy Soft Top Gazebos for 2019

With all the different types of gazebo available to buy, let us first explain exactly what is a soft top gazebo.  A soft top gazebo is fairly self explanatory, it’s a free standing shelter that has a fabric canopy and not a steel or aluminium roof.

There are lots of benefits of owning a soft top but understandably, there are downfalls in comparison with some of the positives that a hardtop can provide.

Also, once you have this item constructed you can expect up to 140sq ft of covered relaxation space where you can choose to relax exactly as you choose.

For a soft top, this is a sturdy structure.  You can expect to be able to leave it up all year round but we do suggest that you remove the fabric during late fall to prevent against damage from the weight of snow and strong winds.

It is fine to leave the skeleton frame outdoors all year round and the powder coating will protect against any rusting.

You can then reattach the fabric back to the skeleton when you intend on using this product again, around mid spring.


Can be screwed down

There are pre-drilled holes in each of the feet at the bottom of the frame legs.  These allow your soft top to be screwwed into hard ground, although, unfortunately screws are not provided and will have to be bought seperately.

However, ground stakes are provided should you wish to use it on a grass surface.

High clearance

When buying these types of products we generally have to cater for different sized guests.

Well, you’ll be pleased to know that the clearance of this gazebo is 6ft 4in and whilst this won’t cater for everybody, you’ll at least know that the majority of your guests will be fine without having to duck.

Water resistant canopy

The canopy is water resistant therefore should you encounter unexpected showers then the rainwater will just run off.

Just be a little cautious should you experience sudden and very heavy rainfall as sometimes the canopy may struggle to cope with the huge amount of rainfall in such a short perios of time.

Pros and cons

  • Vented double roof
  • Creates large shaded area of 140sq ft
  • No tools required to build
  • Water & fire resistant canopy (100% polyester)
  • Represents good value for money
  • Prone to weather damage

As you can see in the picture, it is ideal for adding outdoor patio sets, as well as pot plants or even a hot tub if you have one.


The steel frame is powder coated which protects the frame and the canopy from rusting and adds a much more robust feel to it.

Whilst the double vented canopy allows wind to pass through the roof section safely, it also provides additional stability to the roof and frame sections by relieving pressure when windy and helps prevent any lifting of the gazebo.


Can be screwed down

This makes this Sunjoy summer breeze very sturdy and much more wind resistant.

Water resistant canopy

This soft top is water resistant but not waterproof.

What this means is that it will easily protect you and your guests from short, sharp showers or the odd spot of rain, however, with long, persistent downpours the material will soak up the rain and eventually it will penetrate the material and drip through.

However, due to the very steep angle canopy roof, you’ll find that the rainwater runs off extremely quickly and this helps to get rid of the rain very quickly.

Install hanging lights or fan

There is the ability to hang a light or fan from the center of the roof section and this makes either lighting or cooling your gazebo much easier.

You can also use small hanging lights around the top rail section and this enables you to be able to thread them either side of the rails.

This makes them much more secure and sturdy and will prevent them from falling off, whilst also out of harms reach from children touching the bulbs or tripping over the cable.

  • Good value
  • Easy to Assemble
  • Water Resistant
  • Robust & Sturdy
  • Lots of uses
  • Not Waterproof
