I've been in the trades for many years and Velux is a trusted brand. This skylight was very easy to install. I am a bit wary of the lack of step flashing(s) for an asphalt shingle roof. But, with good water proofing techniques it should be fine.
One critique I have is the foam weather stripping... it's built into the skylight and thick enough, but would be much better if it extended past the bottom of the skylight about 1/2" or 1". That way when installed it would actually get pushed and make better contact. The way this skylight gets installed is that you lay out shingles on the bottom edge of the cut in the roof sheathing and then install it. This leaves a gap and the foam weather stripping does not make full contact. Even though you fill the edges with caulking it's almost a waste to have the foam. Good idea in theory but...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BrendaL Love it!
We took out a large brick fireplace that was never used once in 35 years and replaced it with a seating area with 3 windows and a skylight. I love the skylight! It was fairly easy to install considering we had no idea what we were doing. We did get very lucky when we installed it in the right orientation; there is a side that goes up when installing the skylight horizontally. We hired a professional roofer to replace the shingles where the chimney used to be; the chimney was larger than the skylight and we were able to install new decking. That was more difficult than installing the skylight.

DIY bath remodel, replaced 35 year old leaking skylight. New unit appears well made. Has a low profile on roof, looks good.

There's alot that goes into the decision process. The hope is that you'll get a quality made product. In my case the first hard rain produced a leak. The idea of taking it out and returning it is overwelming.
