We received our site to site shipment in the expected amount of time (10 days) and upon assembling we realized that they did not give written directions for the chairs (just the nuts/bolts). So we ran into a problem with that because the toll free manufacturing number didnt really listen and sent us more nuts and bolts with again no instructions! So that was the only really frustrating thing, we had to figure them out for ourselves and it was challanging to say the least! Glad thats done and over with and now we are enjoying them on our new porch! Great set-very nuetral-I'd recommend it for sure.
The supplied tools are not adequate for assembling these chairs. Don't even try. You will need a straight handle 1/4" driver, a 1/4" socket with a 4mm allen and another one with a 6mm allen. You will also need a 1/4" drive ratchet wrench. If you have these tools, assembly is easy. I have seen many reviews of the threads being stripped or "Cross-threaded". This is not accurate. The holes are tapped out with a thread pitch that makes it easy to screw the screws in (if you have the proper tools). Unfortunately, this also leaves the screws vulnerable to cross-threading. The key is, if the screw goes in tight for your fingers.....STOP!!! back the screw out and put it in again. ALL of my screws went in by finger 1st, then using a straight handle driver, then final tightening with the ratchet wrench. I put together 12 of these chairs and didn't have a single cross-thread (although I did have to back some out and put them in again straight). Screws don't cross-thread themselves, people cross-thread screws.
After reading some of the reviews online I was a bit hesitant to purchase the dining set. It arrived with in one week which was two weeks sooner than expected. It is very simple to put together, but just a bit time consuming. We had 4 people putting the table and chairs together which took about an hour and a half.
The second day we had it, we had a hail storm and heavy rains for two consecutive days. The table and chairs not only held up, but you would never know that they were struck with hail. I definitely recommend the product. It looks very nice and everyone thinks we spent thousands of dollars on it.
Looks great, hope it lasts. A few things before you try assembling it: 1) The castings aren't precision and you'll have to do some heavy-duty screw tightening to draw everything together. Don't tighten ANYTHING until all screws are inserted. 2) Put a drop of 3-in-1 oil in each hole before inserting the screw. (Remove partially-assembled screws, oil, and re-insert.) The screws will go in more easily. 3) The cheap Allen (hex) wrenches they give you aren't up to the job. Go to the hardware store and buy case-hardened Allen wrenches (2 req'd). They won't bugger up the screw heads. Better still, buy ratchet-drive Allen sockets and you'll save a load of wear on your wrist and several hours. -- Tech notes by husband. Bunnydette gave up on assembly.
I am not one to complain about most things, but it seems that I got a patio set that had cross threaded problems. This is due to the manufacturer using dull taps to install the thread. After taking the time to retap most of the threads the installation went without any problems. Most people don't have the necessary equipment to fix a problem like this. The manufacturer needs to improve his quality to insure that nothing leaves his company with poor workmanship.
After reading other reviews a bit skeptical, very pleased! Assembly simple, first chair 1/2 hour from then on 5 minutes. Looks good, sits well and the value is terrific! I am very pleased and would suggest this set to anyone.
I was pleasantly surprised to see how lovely this set really is, especially for the price. It is very sturdy, however, it is a little hard to put together. But it is beautiful and comfortable and would definitely recommend it. Glass top on the table is tempered. Great product and exactly what I was looking for.
Putting this thing together is a nightmare. Most of the screws did not line up with the holes making it easy to cross thread them. Even some of the screws that were put in at the factory were cross threaded and could not be removed or completely screwed in. Poor quality workmanship.
We purchased this set in August and used it on a covered carport for about 6 weeks. Since the weather started to cool we placed the table and chairs in the garage and left them untouched until the first part of March. The next morning after putting the set out which was the first time that it had ever experienced not being covered and in the weather we woke up to the "tempered glass" table top shattered into a 1000 pieces. Nothing had fell on it and it had only rained. Called the company and they want 60 for a replacement glass and they can't put any guarantee that it will not shatter again.
Received this as an anniversary gift from my Mom. The first delivery came with a broken base and shattered glass table. Next delivery came all together but boxes looking like they had gone through a crash. All of the chairs have rub marks all the way through the powder-coating. Decided to put the chairs together since rub areas were unseen when turned. First chair went together ok. Only stripped out 2 of the bolts due to too much flashing in the threaded areas...The next chair, I broke off one of the bolts. They should NOT shear that easily. I then looked on all the threaded holes only to see most had huge build up of powder coating or flash from the welding. 3 of the arm/legs were formed almost 1.5" different then the others...Unless you have a tap and die set, I would not try to put this together...I do custom cabinetry for work and I've got to say, if we put a product out that was anything like this, we would be out of work. sure..it looks nice from the road but over all....it's poorly put together and it's workmanship is terrible. Seeing as I've got 1 more chair to put together and the table, there may be more wrong...and it may still go back to the store. I would love to see someone put this together at the store with the supplied allen wrenches that came with the set...
We bought this set Friday at a local store. Me and one of my friends put the table together. So easy..and it looks great! My husband put the chairs together the next day and they were a little time consuming. Some of the holes didn't line up but we bint it and it worked out. After we got it to line up the process was so easy. The end product looks great and for the price you can't beat it!! The colors and the frame was a great match! I recommend this to anybody looking for a cheap sound set of patio furniture!!! It looks wonderful on my porch!!!
As a review junkie, I read everyone's reviews and purchased this product sight unseen. I was concerned about the comfort of the chairs (never tested), size of the table and overall quality- because it's a heck of a deal compared to other stores! Chairs- super comfortable, table the perfect size for seating six with room for food etc and quality- very good! After first assembling the chairs with tight spaces for the screws, the table was a walk in the park! I'm a woman and accomplished this alone while caring for our active 4 and 2 year old kiddos. So happy I took the "risk"!
We've had this set for over 1 year now and are so pleased with how it has stood up to the time, heavy use and weather. It still looks the same as it did the day we brought it home. It is sturdy and cleans easily. Very pleased.
There is sometimes the satisfaction of getting something above average, or what you are expecting... this is the case. I´ve had about 2 years the dining set and I´ve been very happy about the product, quality and of course, the value of money vs good. I actually recommend this set, been looking around since i did my purchase for new options at this price, no similar found!; and don´t have anything else to say.... great value, you wont regreat it at least for a couple of years.... enjoy...
I finally had this patio set delivered to my house. It had been ordered on 6/4 and was not actually delivered till 7/7. for the price I paid I would say it is a good buy. However the assembly of the chairs was very time consuming. too many screws and only a little Hex wrench ! It needs some kind of driver tool to make inserting these screws a little easier.
I was to receive this in two separate shipments. I received the chairs and was very satisfied with the quality however; I never recieved the table due to it being damaged during shipping and Walmart no longer had any in stock. Perhaps you should try to package better the next time. I was unable to find another table to match the chairs. I had a large family event planned and when I ordered I had plenty of time to recieve my order according to the timeline I was given. Therefore, I had to spend more money on another dining set at a different store. I did recieve my money back for the table plus the shipping costs. At first I was told that I would have to package the chairs in order for a call tag to be issued and picked up by UPS. My husband spent alot of time putting the chairs together and we had thrown the box that they were delivered in away. I phoned back complaining that I should be able to return the chairs to the store, in which I was finally told that they would do that. I unfortunatly have not had time to return the chairs, I plan to do so at the end of this week. I hope that this will not be a difficult task and will recieve my money back for the chairs, plus the shipping costs.
Do you have abnormally low blood pressure? If so this set is for you!
Jokes aside, I have worked construction for 10+ years and can rebuild engines of all kinds but really struggled with this set. Holes not drilled all the way, bad threads, chairs dont sit level, cheap plastic and to top it off I was shorted 1 bolt....I will say this it looks pretty decent from 10 feet away, my neighbors will never know!
Would I buy it again? No, I would spend the extra $100-$200 at Home Depot, Lowes or Menards to get a better set, Mainstays could put a little effort into quality when its obvious they only care about quanity.
I was really pleased with this set. I used ship to store (for no charges shipping) and it was really easy. I entered my phone # and they texted me when the item was shipped and when it got to the store. I find the set is sturdy and, with 2 of us putting it together, it only took a couple of hours to put together. The glass top is like a popcorn beveled, which you can't tell from the picture, but all in all, a very smart purchase.
