Answer: 
YES. Installation booklet that came with my Velux flexible sun tunnel TGF/TMF says it is "designed for roof pitches from 14 degrees to 60 degrees (3:12 - 21:12)."

Yes, as long as your roof pitch is 3:12 to 20:12 and a shingle or tile roof, this will work. Thank you.

Answer: 
If your roof as a 3 12 pitch, it means that it rises 3" for every 12" of roof length, which is quite a shallow slope and common on roofs in sunny climates like the south where there's less chance of snow etc. We put our skylight on a very shallow pitch roof like yours and it looks fine.

The dome will be slightly angled towards the apex of the roof but the flexible tube means we have no issues with the performance of our skylight in terms of getting light into the room. We don't have any issues with leaks either however we did install ours as part of a re-roofing project where we replaced the roofing materials with new ones. Read Less

Answer: 
YES. The flexible tube is very easily cut to length. The challenge, in fact, is installing it without poking holes in it, as the flexible tube material is not very rugged and will not hold up to rough handling.

The sole tube is made from a thin foil material with a wire 'spring' wrapped into it. In our case, we had to cut this to shorten it when we were installing the solar tube so that the wrinkles are flattened out in the tube for better light reflection. Cutting it was quite easy - we used scissors on the foil and a pair of electricians wire cutters on the wire. That being said, the gauge of the wire is Read More

Cutting it was quite easy - we used scissors on the foil and a pair of electricians wire cutters on the wire. That being said, the gauge of the wire is quite thick and you'd probably be better off using some tin snips or something a little stronger so that you don't have to put as much pressure on the cutters.

Answer: 
You can certainly cut the tube to the length needed. However, the minimum distance you must have between the roof and ceiling for this model is 4".

Answer: 
To clean your Sun Tunnel, you must remove the diffusers. To remove the diffuser in your VELUX Sun Tunnel, you will need a flat head tool (flat head screwdriver or butter knife). Once you remove the trim ring from the ceiling, you will have access to the diffuser and the gasket. Simply wedge your tool between the gasket and the diffuser.

Answer: 
The Sun Tunnel has a Light Kit (ZTL 114) available, which can be purchased separately. This light can be turned on and off by the end user. If you would like the outside sun light to be cut off at certain times of the day, you can purchase the ZTK Blackout Shade. Thank you.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best decision EVER. Bought this for a tiny cabin we are remodeling. We took out a broken turbine fan that had a wonky light in it, and added this. It's all sealed up now and SO BRIGHT (yae for no spiders and natural light!). The tube could be cut down to size easily and since we didn't have attic space it needed to travel through, it made installation a breeze. The outside looks great too. We've made lots of changes to the cabin, and this is so far our favorite! September 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Let natural light in We did hire a roofer to installed theTUBULAR SKYLIGHT.. Love to have a ight up kitchen without electricity. I am sure my bill will be lower since I do not use the lights anymore during the day. December 31, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great sun tube We had to get a new roof, so we installed a sun tube while the roofers were laying new shingle. The roofers did roof hole and install the flashing and top portion. I did the hole cutting through ceiling, and interior install. It was pretty easy, even with notching out the 2"X4"s in ceiling to make room for light fixture. Flexitube is like a giant dryer tube, but more reflective. It was easy to stretch and manuever down into place. Hardest part was trying to get the plastic light diffusers back in place after pulling the reflective tube down through the "light fixture." The fixture and light diffusers are plastic, and I thought it might be higher quality for the price. It works though. Installed in bathroom 10' long by 6' wide, and it provides plenty of light. Light does look a little blue in the evenings and mornings, but most of the day its just bright sunlight. This 14" gives PLENTY of light in that bathroom now. I'd install again if I had to do it all over again, and recommend to anyone who has a room with no windows that wants some light in it. I live in TX, and we get plenty of sun. April 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Be aware of blue light I had a contractor install this, so I can't speak to ease of installation. It seemed pretty straightforward. My problems are: 1. The light that the sun tunnel emits is blue. 2. It doesn't emit as much light as I had hoped. I wish I read all the reviews before I bought this product. Another customer talks about the light color, but the sales rep says they've never had this problem before, and there is no mention of it on the website. I also found out after I had it installed that flexible tubing reflects only about half the light of rigid tubing. So be aware. Once you have this installed, it s a major job to undo it. October 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Like a full moon shining down from bathroom ceiling We were getting a new roof done anyway so we thought the Sun Tunnel would be a nice addition to our main (windowless) bathroom. The light has a distinctly bluish quality, like a full moon. We like the additional light and the flexible tube made it easy for the contractor to install. The product would be better if the metallic ceiling ring/collar was made of steel, so you could use a magnetic cover for when you don't want light. Time was tight and the flexible Sun Tunnel was in stock at Home Depot so that's what we ultimately chose, but next time I might go with a rigid tube and perhaps a Solatube. November 6, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed, low light, cheap cover Our contractor installed it on our hallway, but I hated it so much that I had him remove it and patch the sealing up. Here are parts I did not like. 1) It hardly provided much additional light. 2) The tone of the color that came from the dome was much cooler than regular light, so while the rest of the house looked warmer, the area under the dome emitted much colder light and it looked very depressing. 3) The cover is a very cheap plastic cover. There is no glass cover with this product line. I should have used SolaTube brand, which has glass cover and light color correction. November 13, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed The skylight was not hard to install. Taking off the shingles was a bit challenging, but overall it's not difficult to install. Flexible tunnel made it easier to go between kitchen ceiling and rooftop. We were very disappointed in the amount of light reflected. Probably has to do with the flexible tunnel. We would not go to the expense or time to install again if we knew the small amount of light it produced. June 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good sun tunnels for my living room. I had a roof contractor put in my Sun Tunnels. Love them. Let's in a lot of light into room. I have tried other ideas to get light into this darker room. Great solution! August 31, 2014
