User Review: Ozark Trail 12 x 14 Screen House
Price Paid: around $40
We have a 14' x 10 'x 84" screen house, model WMT-1410. It has been used about 5-6 times over the last 2 yrs. The 2nd time we used it, we had a hard thunder shower and the roof puddled along the side bars and collapsed the unit shattering all the 3-way hub gables. We replaced them at a cost almost that of the initial purchase. Now today, after another hard rain, the same thing happened.
It is of poor design, in that this could be avoided using 2 more yellow, curved roof poles which would not allow the rain to puddle on the roof. My husband and I were in the screen room, keeping the rain from puddling for more than a half hour. When we left, it collapsed. We will not replace the 3-way hubs again.
The screening and roof are all in excellent condition, along with all the poles, etc. With two more roof poles, I'm sure this could be prevented. Too bad.
