Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Darrell Decent product. Reasonable installation.
This was the only place I could find a window well cover in this price range that was this size. It has a nice fit and finish but I seriously doubt it could support the 250 lbs. it claims it can. I chose to mount a piece of angle iron to the foundation at the back of the cover instead of using the 2 support clips they provided to try to support it a bit better and provide a little more strength. I also chose to reuse the previous mounting hardware from my old cover, but that was only because it was already there. There stuff seemed fine, I just didn't want to drill any new holes if I could avoid it. This cover also allows you to cut it to match the well perfectly with a skill saw with a high tooth blade or metal blade. I used a metal blade which worked fine but did leave some melted parts of the cover that I had to trim off with a razor blade. Once installed the cover has a great finished look. It's almost as clear as a window. One last note, this cover is completely flat when installed so if you're looking for a cover that provides some angle to shed precipitation, this isn't the cover you'll want.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by birdmoose Pretty Flimsy
I'm wondering if I even got the one they describe above. It is super thin and has 2 really think aluminum strips that go through it. I weight 190 and my wife weighs 120. It says it can hold 250 pounds, but there's no way it can hold either of us if we stand on it independently.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cc1001 Window Well Cover
I ordered 4 of these and a girlfriend and myself installed them in one afternoon. I still have to drill the holes for the back brackets because I didn't have a masonry drill bit. All in all, an easy project if you are comfortable with a drill. Two women did this project with ease---very satisfied with the product as well. Also--I ordered these on line and they arrived in just TWO days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bodonigeorge Excellent window well cover
The cover is well made and comes with all the necessary hardware. It was relatively easy to install and has held up through recent wind and rain storms. My only criticism is that the instructions about the size of masonry drill bit aren't on the outside of the box. It would have saved another trip to the store.
