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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy with purchase I appreciate any product that lives up to its description. June 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks great! We were amazed to see the stars at night. The previous skylight was plastic and had discolored. January 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very well designed .... What is enjoyed the most here was how simple it was to install this June 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great replacement for a bubble style skylight We bought these skylights to replace the plastic style skylights with the aluminum flange that screw into the roof. We had so much trouble with the old ones leaking. These were a bit more involved as you have to make a wooden frame (or your husband does!) for them to sit on. The instructions explain what size to make the frame and once this was done (about a morning's work), the skylights drop straight on. I love being able to look at the stars at night through the clear glass (the old ones had white translucent plastic panels). They're easy to clean and the low E glass keeps the room warmer in winter and cooler in the summer. We'll probably buy the skylight blinds sometime this year. March 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sky Lights and Blinds My wife and I decided to replace old sky lights while new roofing was replaced. We also decided to install blinds. Several reviews indicated difficulty to assemble and install the blinds. One in particular indicated extreme difficulty to assemble and install after sky light was in place. Based on that one review, we almost decided not to buy the blinds. But the blinds looked "cool". My wife wanted them. We were going to hire someone to install the blinds. We purchased the blinds and associated "trays". Most of the time we are D.I.Y. (Do It Yourselfers). We opened the boxes and found the plans and instructions were easy to read. We decided to do it. The first blind took us a little time to put together and install in the sky light ( about 45 minutes). The second blind went in about 15 minutes. The roofers were familiar with the Home Depot sky lights and blinds. They told us that we did a fine job. They installed the sky lights easily. Oh, I forgot to tell you my wife is 83 years young, and I am 87. September 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great quality I have installed several of these curb mounted skylights and I'm consistently pleased with the solid construction and simple installation. The insulated glass is very effective even in a low ceiling situation. June 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good replacement for plastic domes skylights We re-roofed our home earlier this year and removed three of the aluminum framed plastic dome skylights that we'd had all sorts of trouble with leaking. The roofer recommended that we raise the skylight 4-6" above the roof level so we built a frame from 2" x 10". Making the framing was the most difficult part, but the instructions indicate what dimensions to build the frame. Once the framed kerb was mounted to the roof deck, fitting the skylights was simple. My only complaint is that QA at Velux is hit and miss since despite being well packaged in carboard and styrofoam inserts, the metal frame of the skylight was dented on a couple of corners, requiring me to straighten it back out before it would mount properly on the kerb. Once fitted, the skylights work very well and the temperature difference in our rooms in both winter and summer is noticeable. October 22, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High Quality, Easy to understand instructions Combined with the flashing kit, the instructions provided were easy to understand and very detailed. For a first time Skylight installer, I had no problem installing this one. Took a long time, but that was more due to my inexperience. June 17, 2014
