Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Skylights made I purchased both the window and flashing. Since there isn't a dealer in my area I had a pro roofer install 3 skylights. Roofer noted Velux is the only brand he uses too. The roofer handed me the supplied installation screws and noted he would not use these screws as they will eventually rust out and cause a possible leak. He used stainless steel screws with rubber washers. March 27, 2015
