Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just What I Needed This is a very heavy duty window well cover that I purchased as a replacement for a very flimsy one that cracked when I inadvertently stepped on it when it was covered with snow. While I haven't tried to bear my 110 pound weight on this one, I believe that it could easily stand up to it. July 1, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Decent window well covers Decent product but I wouldn't trust anyone weighing 250 to walk on them. I installed them at an angle to promote run-off and get some air circulation at the sides. Made supports out of 2X6" cedar boards braced with 6in lengths of PT balusters attached with stainless L brackets. Just set the back edge of the cover on the board. Also used strips of white vinyl interior trim attached with construction adhesive to camouflage the bright aluminum support pieces because they looked weird with our old house. Had to make cuts in one to allow for AC lines. The aluminum was tough to cut but the plastic cut easily with a jigsaw. They're a vast improvement over the flimsy pieces of corrugated plastic that my husband used for covers, that I fell through once and the grandkids fell through twice. August 20, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Window well cover Was not aware when buying the cover that it attaches to the outside of the well rather than the wall of the house. The cover cannot be attached to the well if you live in an old house (ours is circa 1938) if the perimeter of the well is brick. We have the cover just sitting on the well which is not ideal. Seems strong and would work well on a newer home. Expensive for what it is. July 14, 2006
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to install Easy to install, covers tightly all in all strong cover November 12, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice product but very poor installation instructions The directions for installation were essentially unintelligible to this non-engineer. I fortunately had no need for it to swing open, so I just screwed it to the house which worked fine. There is no way I could have figured out how to install it to swing open with the directions which were provided. The product itself seems adequate for the purpose. August 7, 2012
