Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ccadglanza Hip Skylight Looks So Good
Once you follow the instructions that come in the box you will have no issues. The Skylight must be at the correct height for the type of roofing material you are using so it can be properly flashed.
I love that it is not transparent and lots of light still filters through. But don't expect the light to be that of a transparent Skylight.
The Hip appearance is absolutely cool and gives a nice finish to the roof''s appearance making it look posh.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Easy to install and looks great.
I installed this myself to replace an older skylight that had cracked. I couldn't believe how easy it was to install. I just unscrewed the old unit and lifted it off the frame. Then I dropped this onto the frame and installed the screws that were supplied with it through the holes that were pre-drilled. It came with a seal pre-fitted to the underside of the top surface so there was really nothing else to do.
My photo of the skylight from inside does not do justice to the nice diamond pattern that shows through. It does break up the light so there is no glare and no privacy issues.
I am completely pleased.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dportnoff Serious quality control issues
I would really like to install these skylights in my home. However, it is proving to be extremely difficult to obtain any that aren't damaged. I ordered 5 and they all showed some level of damage. I ended up keeping two that were usable and sending the other three back. Those had large dents in the corners of the frame, and one of them wouldn't lay flat. I am hoping that I will be able to obtain three more acceptable units, but it looks like other customers are having exactly the same issue. I wonder what they are doing with the ones that get sent back--repackaging them and sending them out again?
HD, please address this issue. I will be ordering/returning these again and again until I have the 5 units I need.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrPratster Good replacement purchase to the old one.
The product is solid and sturdy. Came in triple packaged layers, the bubble wrap, the manufacturer box and the shipping box. Easy to install. It has foam to seal the air out. Not sure about insulation quality because this seems to be a is a single layer pannel. Overall, I am very happy with the quality of the product... and my wife is also happy. :-)

Very pleased with the Skylight........The only draw back, was that I had to purchase the FLASHING KIT AND INTERNAL PLASTIC SHIELD "SEPARATE".
Home Depot Sales/Representative was very knowledge and helpful in explaining to me what I needed to purchase in order to complete the installation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fredtech Great product, spread the light real well.
Really good product. It really does spread the light uniformly. Too bad it wasn't approved for hurricane in Brazoria county, Houston. I had to return them when the inspector saw them.

My 20 year old sunotics skylight is better built. The topp layer on the old one s smooth. THe new one has ripples. Even though the appearance fro inside the house looks the same, I am a bit disappointed. Also the directions for the skylight opening and the flashing do not mesh. I had to trim my roof opening to allow the flashing to fit. Quite disappointing there..
