Customer Questions & Answers

Does snow melt away/off of this low profile skylight?

I live in northern WI, where it's typical to have an inch or so of snow on the roof throughout the winter months. Would I have to constantly clear the snow from the roof in order for this skylight to operate? I am wondering if the raised dome style would be my only option?
Asked by: Frozentundra
Well, it's a square, so there will be some damming of snow and ice; we've had a mild winter here so I can't say for sure. I can tell you that we have had many beefy rains for the four or five months after the install and it's not leaked yet.

Asked by: ORVI
Depends on which part you want to install and how tall is your roof ridge. If it was not closed to the roof ridge or roof ridge was not very tall, you might not need extension. For the safe side, buy a 2ft extension. If you don't need it, you can return it.

Can the tunnel be exposed outside? I would like to place the flashings on the edge of my balcony and route the tunnel under the balcony into the wall of my living room (see the attached picture).
Asked by: yt
I was unable to view your attached photo, however, we do not advise that our SUN TUNNEL be used in this application. It is intended to install on your roof deck with the tunnel running through your attic space, protected from the elements. In addition, the diffuser is meant to install in your ceiling for maximum light. If you expose the tunnel outdoors, it will compromise the thermal performance and possibly allow rain water to penetrate and enter your home. In addition, this type of install would also void your warranty. Thank you for choosing VELUX!

14 in. Flat Glass SUN TUNNEL Tubular Skylight with Rigid Tunnel and Low Profile Flashing is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from We wanted more sunlight in our 1970's split level, and originally were going to put in two skylig... We wanted more sunlight in our 1970's split level, and originally were going to put in two skylights ourselves. However, I didn't want to build the drywall chute, and I read that skylights lose a lot of heat in the winter, and tend to develop leaks through snow and ice damming. So, we liked the idea of a sun tunnel because of the obvious ease of installation (just a circle cut in the ceiling and not a big drywall build) and because of the hefty claims of the lumens of light produced by such a small aperture. My wife was NOT going to have a bubble on the front of the home roof, so we purchased a 14 inch Velux flat glass sun tunnel through Home Depot that would lie flat on the roof. I did the installation in one very long day (the claim that it can be installed in about two hours may be true if you have done it a dozen times. But be prepared for a long install if you are DIY'r weekend warrior like myself doing it for the first time). I carefully removed all shingles in the area, made the cuts, and, while I found removing the shingles to be challenging, the process of installing this product was otherwise pretty straight forward, and just required time and common sense and a lot of sealant. I am an experienced handyman and it took literally from sun up to sun down, but I was done in a day, and I am proud to say there are no leaks after months of use. Now, to the performance: We mounted ours on a southern exposure roof, but there is a tree whose branches and leaves chop the sunlight up for a good part of the day. So, as a result the sun tunnel has yielded disappointing results. When the sun manages to get directly to the lens on the roof in months when the sun is adequately bright (Summer and early fall in the upper Midwest) then the tunnel has ALMOST performed well. It can produce a lovely, glistening light. But, just not enough of it for a long enough time in our application. I kept asking my wife, "What do you think? What do you think? Is it bright? Is it cheery?" The fact I had to keep asking, well, that tells you it really never got over the hump of really lighting up our average living room. And, on dark, dreary days of winter or when the tree has managed to block the light, sun tunnel is just a milky blob on the ceiling. So, on the whole, this product in our situation is at it's best ALMOST but not quite worth it, and on its worse days (and there are more of these worse days than good days) it's downright disappointing. *meh* Now, is that the fault of the product? No. It simply has a limited capability when not receiving direct sunlight, and that fact should have been obvious to me by seeing the design.This flat lens simply needs pretty direct sunlight to really *ahem* shine. So, unless you are able to give pretty direct sunlight you may want to go with a different product. Sad to say, but we will probably cut this sun tunnel out and go with a true skylight in the future. As for the quality of the product: The tempered glass lens seems solid--important since it has to put up with a beating out there. The lens that diffuses the light on the interior of the house provides a tight seal with the mirrored shoot, so I don't think we lose much heat up the chute in the winter. But, the flashing is very thin and pliable and, indeed, arrived at our doors with the corners bent as if a portent of things to come. The plastic "O" ring that finishes the interior ceiling fixture is cheap plastic and is already cracked after merely removing it a few times. I am afraid to touch it now. Cheap and gaudy. The product does look good from the street, very discreet, and the high-quality glass won't yellow like the polymer bubbles in other designs. So, what would I say overall: I suspect the product will work well if it has direct sunlight for significant portions of the day and year. If you have choppy light or a northern exposure or direct light for only a few hours of the day or you have a lot of gray winter days to contend with--you may be disappointed overall as we are. A different product might be the way to go for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 5th Velux Product Installed This is my fifth Velux purchase. 2 were 2'x4' double glass insulated sky lights - great product. 2 others were 10" polycarbinate domes with interior diffuseres made of Prismatic GLASS - also great products. This latest install was a 14" tempered flat glass roof assembly. So much better looking than the domes and the extra wide flashing a huge benefit for not having roof leaks. BUT the interior frosted ceiling diffuser is a cheap plastic and mine was cracked. It took 31 days to get the right replacement. This is why I did not recommend nor not recommend this product. Again, the exterior roof appearance is so much nicer than the domes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad quality I was convinced by many good reviews of the product, and decided to give it a try. I was surprised to found out that the first one came with a defect. I knew this was manageable but I spent big bucks and I want something perfect! So I returned it and ordered again. I was so disappointed when I opened the box. It was even worse than the first one. I ended up return it along with the 2 ft rigid extension I bought. I don't want to try this anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same performance with no plastic bubble. Despite being 1400sq', single story, with an abundance of windows, the light brown walls ate all the light coming into our home, making it dark and depressing even in the summer. So, when the time came to re-roof, we installed 7 Velux skylights all together. 2 electric 4646's, 1 fixed 3046, and 4 tubes. Two of the tubes would be visible from the street, and I am not fond of the appearance of the plastic dome. Luckily I discovered the TLR low-profile unit while planning the project. Another reason for choosing the TLR was the pitch of our roof was such that a TMR, which our roofer recommended over the TGR for our roof, would have sat askew/out of level. We did go with the TGR instead of the TMR for the domed units after meeting with the Velux rep, but that's a different story. ****Bottom line: The Velux Sun Tunnel skylights bring in much more light than we were expecting (after seeing our neighbor's new tubular skylight), and there is no discernible difference between the amount of light coming in through the two Sun Tunnel's with the plastic dome, and the two with the flat glass termination. The finished appearance is discreet and attractive, and was worth the extra hundred dollars. In fact, though I love the two enormous venting skylights in our living area, in hindsight I may have opted instead for 4 TLR tubes, which would have resulted in as much and possibly more light, less cost, and less additional load in heating and A/C.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent sun tunnel, that doesn't look like a "bubble" This sun tunnel provides excellent light, is well built and looks great on the roof. Since it is flat glass, it blends in nicely on the roof, instead of looking like a bubble up there. Great on a visible side of the roof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Just had a TLR installed to an interior bath while a new roof was put on. It is amazing how much light fills the room. One of out better decisions.
