Tyrem Centre-Pivot Roof Window Clear 550 x 980mm
Tyrem roof windows
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.

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......
Can't wait to do some stargazing...

I can see clearly now...
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.
