If side panels were available I would of given 5 stars (even if I had to pay in addition for them). The wrought iron frame looks stunning in my garden. German engeering at its best, details have been seen to, such as black plastic caps to cover the silver nuts and bolts, and holes in the bottom of the corners for tent pegs to hold down the structure. The assembly leaflet is pretty vague but manageable, all parts are labelled clearly with numbers, which I have left on to help me with reassembly next year (they're not visible once assembled). It all packs down very neatly and will fit in my shed over winter. I had an awning similar to this previously but made with metal tubes and that didn't last 5 minutes as the wind easily blew it over and the poles bent rendering it useless, this wrought iron one is far superior. It's extended my outside living space quite considerably. I put it together myself in a couple of hours, however, needed my partner's assistance to help attaching the metal roof section. The canvas roof I did myself - be sure to make sure the top hole is completely clear before using the velcro ties - I had mine caught on the very top sections (piece nrs 11). Also, I would recommend ironing the canvas before putting it on, I didn't and I can't be bothered to take it off and put it back on again now so am hoping the creases will drop out soon!
