Customer Questions & Answers

can you specify on glazing material

your description is with Laminated LowE3 Glass what does this mean
Asked by: saul
Our laminated glass has an additional laminated layer as opposed to our tempered glass. The layer of laminate creates a protective barrier that will keep the glass from shattering like the tempered glass would. So if the tempered glass is broken it will break into many little pieces. The laminated glass will act like a car windshield and spider web without breaking through. It's a much safer glass and is required by building code for skylights that are out of reach. The visible difference is almost impossible to see with the naked eye.

does this unit come with a manually controlled bllinds already installed

Asked by: maria7
Apparently, there is much more money to be made selling solar powered blinds with remote controls. As I have discovered, manual blinds in the most common sizes are no longer available. It's a good time to be a competitor in the skylight manufacturing biz... This is from a disgruntled remodeling contractor with 40 yrs. of disgruntling....

Can I order a replacement top from the ninge up for a storm damaged unit?

I only need the top half of the skylight. It would help if I could see the mechanics of the opening mechanism in the pictures. I also need a price.
Asked by: QCC123
Yes, you can order the Special Sash CurbD. You will need to get a price through Home Depot. Thank you.

Is the glass from this unit interchangeable with an Insul Dome 46 1/2 X 46 1/2.

Asked by: Siv
We do offer the CG2 4949 Curb Mount Unit, which comes in an acrylic dome. However, this is a fixed skylight. We do not offer the acrylic dome in venting. Thank you for choosing VELUX!

Can you put the windows in a modular home?

I have skylight windows now in my modular home. Would I be able to replace those with this type of window
Asked by: lori
Yes, you can install the VCM Curb Mount Skylight in your Modular Home as long as your roof pitch is between 0 and 60 degrees. Since these are curb mounted units, make certain that you select a size that will fit over your site-built curb. If you need a size that VELUX does not stock, they can custom make the FCM (fixed curb mount) unit only. Thank you for choosing VELUX Skylights and Sun Tunnels.

Asked by: David
Yes, you can purchase a replacement insect screen for your Venting Curb Mount Skylight. When you place an order, please provide the serial number on the skylight (inside frame on a metal tag) to ensure that the correct screen is ordered. Thank you.

22-1/2 in. x 34-1/2 in. Fresh Air Venting Curb-Mount Skylight with Laminated Low-E3 Glass is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 6.

This was a replacement for an old acrylic model that had cracked so installation was easy. It’s much heavier than the old one so getting it up on the roof took a little more effort. The rod that I used to open the old one is a perfect fit with this one. The quality of this one is excellent and will probably never need to be replaced in my lifetime.

This product is rated for a 0 degree installation angle, but the warranty is only for 10+ degrees. It started leaking after 4 years at 0 degrees. I guess there is a good reason they won't warranty it. It looks good, insulates well, but just doesn't work at the rated installation angle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Skylight Have not had the opportunity to use it yest, just installed.
Date published: 2016-10-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement of existing unit, no problem. I used this to replace another skylight and it was one of the few available that would work with the existing curb. Installation was a breeze other than having to remake part of the light well due to a slight difference the old one and this new one. This is a manually opening model. One small negative is that it takes 35 cranks to fully open the Velux. The old one took 18. It seems this one does open a bit farther though, so it's a fair trade. My one and only complaint is that Velux does not offer this skylight, indeed any other the VCM models, with a manual shade of any sort. If you want a Velux shade (which was the reason I sought out Velux originally) you must buy an electric model with remote control that costs nearly as much or more than the actual skylight. To me, an electric shade, or for that matter an electrically opening skylight, is just one more thing to go wrong. My actual curb dimensions are 26" X 38" which are a bit larger than the stated size for this unit, but it fit with no difficulty. Otherwise, it is a great product which I'm hopeful will give many years of service.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs a better opener The loop handle which snaps in to open and close the skylight is not easy to operate. A simple levered handle would be easier to use as it is within arm's length. The interior plastic frame is cheap looking

Rated 3 out of 5 by from product naming/sizing is confusing with a curb-mounted skylight, you'd think the measurements noted on the box are for the outside of the curb -- the box that you need to cover (outside to outside). not so. the 22.5 measurement is for the glass itself and this skylight is made to cover a 25.5in box. why is the glass size important? while this is noted in the specs here on the site, it's not particularly evident on the product packaging or the naming nomenclature at the store.... they should call it a 25.5x25.5 ... not 22.5x22.5 ... it's a great looking skylight and very well built. i just wish it would have fit.
