Good Product for the price
A quality product for the price. Easy instructions with a YouTube video for the install of this product. Every thing you will need to install is included except for tools, and sealants. Even a drive bit for the screws is included! Simple straight forward step by step instructions help you produce an elegant solution for the "Dual Egress" requirements. I would recommend this product should you desire or need an Emergency Egress window for your second story bedrooms.

      The window quality is very poor in relation to cost....
      The window quality is very poor in relation to cost. The window is constructed with flimsy material. I am extremely disappointed with this purchase and would absolutely not recommend. I will return this window once the replacement arrives as the hole in my roof had already been cut.

        Nice window installation nightmare
        Ordered the window/flashing package. Cut out roof to pattern. Perfect fit. That's where it all goes wrong. Long screws for setting window to roof are cheap. Broke off 3 before I pulled window off and had to pre-drill rafters. After window is installed discover flashing is 2" too tall and 1 1/2" too wide. Cut flashing down but not a perfect fit after being cut. Used plenty of roofing tar and roll sealant to seal but after rain I'm still getting some leakage. Do not order with flashing kit. It does not match and is way overpriced. No complaints on window it's self. Opens fine. But installation kit and flashing need attention by manufacture.

          good solid attic egress
          I bought this for getting onto my roof from my attic (not for the light), so that I can clean gutters and hang Xmas lights. Product arrived with significant cosmetic damage, and screws were loose and rattling around in the box, as were the nails for the flashing kit but I installed it anyway. The mounting method is a bit too precise for retrofit, though it would be a good method for a brand new home. I had to sister up some 1x boards to give the mounting screws something to bite into.

          Great value, great price
          I was very satisfied with the quality and value of the window. We purchased the window and flashing kit. It was fairly easy to install but we used a licensed roofer to install the flashing kit. It fit well and looks great from both the inside and outside.
