first roof window fitted.
20 Jan 2013
By keffe

" As a do it your selfer it was important to be able to fit as trouble free as possible. the down loan video was first class. The window action and qaulity was first class also. Fitting was easy, with the making good and decoration taking the longest time. The internal finsh and loks were great and have transformed the bedroom that it was fitted in.
will be buying more to fit. A very pleased buyer.

Great value for the money

" This window is well built and great value. This is the first time I've ever installed a window like this and I managed it easily in less than a day. All installation is done from inside, very good video and step by step photo guide on their website.
I would definitely buy another one of these.

Great new windows....

" Excellent value for money, fast delivery too!
I really like the handle instead of a bar, that's ok for us as we can easily reach the handles. Good quality.
I can't give full marks for reliability as they have only been fitted 2 weeks!! they come with a 10 year g/tee also. Slate fixing kit is also good......
Would recommend......
Can't wait to do some stargazing...

Tyrem roof windows
24 Oct 2013
By Drewby

" I purchased 3 of these for a loft conversion project whilst on special offer. They worked out half the price of the Velux equivalent which I have installed before. The quality of the windows is on par with its competitors. Having the handle at the bottom of the window make for easy opening of the windows for those with a height disadvantage.
The flashing kit is pretty good however does not come with a felt collar to go around the edge of the frame before installing the flashing kit. Luckily I had stock of felt or I would of been pretty miffed. I also disposed of the flimsy securing tabs and use a heavy duty staple gun instead to secure the trims to the trusses.
The major downside is the fitting guide which is totally inadequate for the DIY installer.
The online videos are worse than useless, and there is no technical support line. Previous experience enabled me to work out best method of fitting which takes approximately 2 hours to complete per window.
Overall these widows are excellent value for money backed by a 10 year guarantee. If the flashing contained the required felt and the fitting guide was of any use (screwfix you need to sort this) I would have given 5 stars.

" Good looking product, the only downside being that it has a normal window handle instead of a bar. This means that you need step ladders to open it instead of using a pole. Otherwise it's just the job. "

good product, but !!!
16 Apr 2012
By goonaman

" I bought two of these because they were a good price and have a 10 year guarantee.
The product is well made but basic and this is probably why its so cheap compared with some other makes.
my bigest issue is with the installation support.
My first problem is with the instructions enclosed with the window, its in pictorial format but crucially the pictures differ from the actual product so getting the orientation correct is a real pain. What really messed me up, is that the instructions have the measurment of the first batton supporting the window wrong, if you follow it and fit a slate flashing it comes up too short, i ignored it and fitted it closer to the bottom edge of my tiles to get it right.
My other problem is with the companys web site, the videos do not work!! some are mpeg and some are tlv format (i have no idea why). You are better off going on utube and looking at the Fakro window installation, which is a similar product. I wasted hours getting this window water tight simply because there was a lack of support.
So to sum up, the window is good value but a real pain to fit unless you have done one before. Next time I would seriously consider paying more for Fakro or velux.
