Product Overview

VELUX skylights are an energy-efficient way to bring sunlight into a home and make dark rooms come to life. Bringing natural light into a home through a skylight decreases the need for electricity while maintaining privacy. Installing a skylight is one of the most impactful ways to enhance both the brightness and beauty of a room.

  • Inside curb dimensions for VELUX FCM 2230 models are 22-1/2 in. by 30-1/2 in. and outside curb dimensions for FCM 2230 models are 25-1/2 in. by 33-1/2 in.
  • The FCM skylight qualifies for a 10-year no leak installation warranty when installed with VELUX ECL flashing on a shingle roof with a pitch between 10° and 60° or VELUX ECW flashing on a tile roof with a pitch between 14° and 60° (flashing kits are sold separately)
  • Consider adding a VELUX solar powered blind (sold and shipped separately) which is eligible for up to a 30% federal tax credit and allows you to control the light
  • Consider upgrading to a VELUX solar powered fresh air skylight (model VCS) to bring both natural light and fresh air into your home using only the power of the sun, plus it is eligible for up to a 30% solar tax credit, making it very affordable
  • Features tempered energy efficient, low-E3, argon-filled, dual glass panes

Answer: 
Yes, however, we do not have a Metal Roof Flashing to accommodate that application. You will need to manufacture your own flashing. Thank you for choosing VELUX!

Answer: 
Yes! If you have a 3/12 or greater, you will use the Velux Deck Mounted series of skylights plus the appropriate flashing. For a flat style roof you would use the Curb Mounted Velux Skylight.

Answer: 
Absolutely! As long as your roof slope is no greater than 60 degrees, the FCM will work. If your Ranch home has a roof pitch greater than 60 degrees, you will need to install the FS Deck Mount Skylight instead, which is designed to install on roof pitches that are between14 and 85 degrees. I hope this is helpful! Thank you for choosing VELUX!

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Skylights! Worth the money. I have many velux skylights throughout my home. They have never failed or caused me any problem. As long as they are installed correctly, with the corresponding flashing kit, you should be happy and worry-free. September 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by These skylights don't last and will leak! If you install these you can expect to get maybe 10 years out of them before they start to leak. Velux warranty is only 10 years and they will not honor the warranty unless you have a Velux inspector inspect them after installation. This pushes the cost up huge. Great window but expect to replace them every 10 years and note insurance providers will not insure for water damage caused by these windows due to too many claims recently on leaky Velux windows. Based on past experience i would not recommend Velux skylights. September 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wow just wow easy install I am amazed how easy this skylight was to install. I replaced my "bubble" type plastic ones that came with this house. These are an easy plug and play it even says it on the box. . All I did extra was a bit of weather stripping on my curb to stop any air that may try and sneak in during our frequent wind storms. I love their weight the most. Just dropped on it feels you wouldn't need to do anything else. I did like the YouTube vid said and had my helper push down on them while I drilled the screws in. They snugged right in with a great seal. They are a HUGE improvement over the old plastic bubble ones. I just wish I had done it sooner. June 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality Looks good and good quality sky light tempered low E glass August 16, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Out of the dark God created light and it's wonderful to be able to see it. I don't know how well insulated these skylight are but I will update my review in winter. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Nice replacement. I didn't want to replace the curb and roof shingles to save cost since there was no leaking problem. After having to cut the frame of the existing bubble, I built an aluminum frame of 1X1 square tube to mount the new cover onto. Turned out pretty good. This has yet to be proven by a good rainstorm. I would have given it a 5, but a bit of the weatherstrip was out of place around the glass July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great upgrade The Velux skylights are a great addition to our home. Instructions were clear, but we wish the flashing had been included or at least the need for it indicated on the packaging. Home Depot did not carry the flashing on a roll- only a flashing kit which was quite expensive. We ended up purchasing a roll of flashing from Lowe's (sorry Home Depot!) Skylights are heavy, but that is good! it shows their high quality. We are very pleased with the quality and appearance. October 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice Very nice! Easy to assemble. Had the real test this last week when it rained almost everyday. Can't even hear the rain hit the window. My old skylights sounded like drums when the rain hit it. I'm happy and impressed. The gentleman that installed them for us said they were better quality than the ones he purchased for his home which were over $100 more for his. April 26, 2016
