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 3046 models are 30-1/2 in. by 46-1/2 in. and outside curb dimensions for FCM 3046 models are 33-1/2 in. by 49-1/2 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, which is eligible for a 30% federal solar tax credit and allows you to control the light
  • Consider upgrading to a 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 a 30% federal solar tax credit, making it very affordable

Answer: 
The FS C06 is a Deck Mounted Unit. It installs directly to the roof deck and has a minimum pitch requirement of 14 degrees (3/12). This is used mostly in new applications. The FCM 2246 is a Curb Mounted Unit. It installs over a site-built curb and has a minimum pitch requirement of 0 degrees (0/12). This is great for replacing bubbles or glass units that are on an existing curb. They are both great Read More

I have several OLD (single pane, plastic dome) curb mounted skylights on a flat, foam roof area of my home that desperately need replacing. Will these have any issues with standing water, staying clean or other issues if mounted flat? Thanks

Our FCM Curb Mount Skylight is designed to install on a flat roof application without the threat of leaking. If you purchase Laminated Glass (type 2004D), it will allow for easier cleaning. The Laminated Glass is our Clean, Quiet & Safe Glass. Clean - it features a Neat glass coating to keep your skylight cleaner longer, leaving skylights virtually spotless. Quiet - Reduces unwanted outside noise by up to 25% less than a standard double pane glass, and up to 50% less than a plastic skylight. Safe - VELUX recommends and building codes require laminated glass for out of reach applications. The laminated glass, should it break, will not fall into the room. It will stay attached to the skylight similar to a car windshield. Thank you for choosing VELUX! Read Less

Does this come with the "optional accessory tray" mentioned in the manufacturers technical drawings?

This question is from 30-1/2 in. x 30-1/2 in. Fixed Curb-Mount Skylight with Tempered Low-E3 Glass

The cross section drawing on the velux website mention an "optional accessory tray", which as far as I can tell from the velux skylight shade installation instructions is needed to mount the shades to the skylight. Does this skylight come with this "tray", or does it need to be ordered separately?

Answer: 
If you order the FCM Skylight with pre-installed blinds, the accessory tray will be included. If you order the blind separately, you will need to order the accessory tray separately, as well. Thank you for choosing VELUX!

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
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 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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product, easy to install, cost effective. Strongly recommend it to replace plastic lights! Bought these to replace old plastic ski lights. I also bought the flashing and curb installation kits that go with them (strongly recommended!). To install them properly you will need to strip the shingles down to the deck and install the step flashing integrating with the new shingles. I consider myself handy and it was no problem. The actual sky light installs on top of the opening and flashing system in less than 10 minutes. I would plan on 4 hours to replace the light assuming your deck and curbing are in good shape. If its a new opening, it will take longer as you will have some carpentry work to do. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great update Replacing the old bubble skylites with the Velux skylite is a great update, should have done it years ago. You can't go wrong with these windows. July 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install Easy to install. Looks great. Much better than my old ones! They look so nice I wish I had one in every room of my house. April 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Velux Curb Mount Skylights Rained just after installation and not a leak in sight! Looks great - just what I wanted. Hopefully they will hold up well over time. April 7, 2015
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
