Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Discriminatingshopper Stylish ceiling fan
We bought two of these ceiling fans for a screened in porch at our lake house and love the way they look and function. The oil-rubbed bronze fits in well with the style of the house and the closed seeded glass lights are very attractive. We were remodeling, so our electrician installed these for us, therefore I cannot comment about ease of installation. They provide such a nice breeze on very still summer days and the light is perfect for us in the evening. We have had them now for about a month and we are very happy with these ceiling fans; we have received many complements about them too.

Ordered 2 Sailwind fans with light fixture. No directions were included in the box for installation. Required to go on line to view/print. This made it very difficult not to have a hand held copy for installation. Great difficulty putting fans ups. (Have done many over the years.) Purchased 2 Sailwinds for large outdoor covered deck. With one up, started the task on the 2nd fan. Difficulty with wiring two together so had to hire an electrician. Electrician mounted 2nd fan when working on wiring 2 together using one remote. He found the blades scraped the motor housing on Sailwind #2 fan. Took fan apart and measured. The motor was mounted at the factory to high. (Correct on first fan.) Called Home Depot and could not get assistance. Engagement party planned in 5 days to be held at our home on the deck. Given manufactures number for support, but they didn't open for another 2 hours. Was told it had to be returned and replaced they do not work on motors. Called Home Depot back but they could not get a fan out to us in time. Suggested I return the fan to the Home Depot store and purchase a fan to put up until next Sailwind arrives. This meant taking the fan down again. Returning it to store. At store, found only an indoor fan similar. Electrician had to return due to wiring / remote issue. Have not put up the new Sailwind fan that was ordered due to electrician's schedule.
Annoyed at the number of hours this has taken what should have been a simple purchase and installation.
Can't believe Home Depot did not offer to replace the fan at no cost or 50% after the hours and expense this product has caused.
We will NEVER purchase another of the Home Depot brand products like this. Everyone that comes to the new porch will also hear the nightmare of the ceiling fan saga we went through.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by build great fan ! workd great ! wish i would have installed one years ago !
very good and easy to understand instructions ! the wire was already in place all I had to do was install blocking and electrical box. I did not wire up for remote control or the dimmer that came with it. I instead purchased a dimmer switch separate so it would match our wall plate that was inside the house.
I wired up the fan after consulting a buddy of mine. the install went very smooth, and my buddy wired up the dimmer switch. its a great fan!

I've received so many compliments on the rich look of these fans in my new patio enclosure. I really like the wall control that comes with it. Very nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FrankieF Fits requirements & setting
Looking to replace a 30 year old Casablanca with a wall switch control. This fan fit the requirements and the rustic look required for the room. The fan is attractive, very quiet with no wobbles out of the box. The light output is relatively low (what we were looking for) and the wall controls simple and easy to operate. A great fit for the situation. Somewhat expensive relative to other options, but the simple rustic look set it apart from the others.
Installation required a bit of planning given the sloped ceiling that it was installed on. Would have been nice to have included with the fan a swivel or all purpose crossbar to set on the electrical box. This was required so you could position the mounting bracket to maximize the angle required and ensure the downrod (24" rod) was vertical. Remaining installation was relatively easy as this was a replacement vs new installation. Only recommendation with the configuration, would be to add the ability to change the fan direction on the wall switch (previous fan had this feature). Changing the fan direction requires getting on a ladder and dodging the fans, to flip the switch at the top of the fan housing. Additionally changing the bulb can be a bit tedious. The bulb is no problem, but getting to it can be. The screws to drop the glass shade are at the top of a mounting plate that are very close to the fan housing, making it a very narrow area to work with your hand.

We had someone install for us and he did not complain, lol anyways the ceiling light is rustic and looks fantastic. I did not use the wall controls but purchased a separate remote. We had 1 switch installed for the light.
