Need Help with Raising the posts on a Gazebo

I am new to this so please forgive me if I am in the wrong place. I have a a gazebo I purchased from a store but I need to raise the height of the entire structure 10 inches to miss the door swinging out. It is sitting on a pre-existing concrete slab. The posts are made out of aluminum and have holes that can be drilled into the concrete. Can anyone provide any suggestions of a safe way to raise the posts?
Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the forums! Are the posts made for this gazebo? What will keep them vertical once the gazebo is placed on top of all 8 of them. 10" is a substantial height to raise something on spindly legs. Of course you can post a picture or two of the gazebo and the proposed legs, we may have a solution up our sleeves

Cool Need Help with Rasining posts on a Gazebo

Sorry I haven't responded sooner. I was afraid of that. Yes the posts come with them and I think they are too spindly also. So I brought it back and decided to make my own to the height I need. Thank you so much for confirming the raising the posts that high was not a good idea. You made my life and the decision easier! I appreciate your impute.
