It is hard to tell if this unit includes a screen to keep out the bugs. Any additional details would be greatly appreciated - such as if it not included, is it an option? Additional cost estimates, etc.

Thanks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very well made product---so far I rated the 'installation' as "excellent" based only on the unit itself. For a DIY homeowner, if the opening for the skylight has yet to be cut and/or the 'curb' has not been built onto which the skylight is mounted, then this becomes a much more involved, and complicated project. That being said, Velux has made a very good product which looks very weather proof. Because it is a solar system there is no wiring to run, and the solar panel mounts very easily with only two screws and a simple snap electrical connector. The remote, touchsreen, control module is very easy to operate and the rain sensor worked flawlessly. Because I have only had the unit installed for about 2 weeks, I have no way to rate the quality beyond that time frame. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thought I made a mistake, but.... Thought I made a mistake, but....We love the solar powered skylight!!!!! I had buyers remorse at first, but after was installed, and we started using it, couldn't be more happy. It lets so much air threw, I cant believe it myself. Plus the quality is there! You wont regret it. September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product I brought this product last week and it works more than what I expected. Worth for paid money November 12, 2013
