This is a nice, high quality kit. It installed easily, and I was impressed with the quality of the flashing kit it included. There is no way I would have been able to fabricate a flashing that fit as perfectly. I'm a professional carpenter, but I think these kits turn this into a project that would be a pretty easy for a novice. The written instructions are explicit and easy to understand, and the kit includes everything you need. The only thing I would add is that I recommend using stainless steel roofing nails; they cost a couple dollars more, but will last multiple times longer. Also it's a good idea to use Gracie ice and water shield or other high quality ice dam if you live in an area that gets much moisture.

Quick delivery and a good quality. No skylights are easy to install. There replaced two leaking units from the same manufacturer that were over 15 years old. Dimensions were slightly different. The old units had a built in vent that they no longer make. Did fit with minor work to interior drywall being required.

Installation was simple after watching the youtube video and following the instructions. The flashing kit was mad for a larger window so there was extra material. Which was fortunate because we needed the extra becasue one strip of the sealing tape got messed up. Folks getting larger windows my want to order an extra roll of the sealing tape.
finishing form the inside was a breeze with the slots on the windows for the sheetrock.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dave Awesome skylight and get the remote blind
I got this skylight size but for a flat roof. I also got the programmable remote shade and am so glad I did. This thing works great and you can program hundreds of settings. I have it programmed every hour during the day so it closes little by little to keep the sun off of furniture but still gives you light and fully closed for an hour or two then back open. If you don't like the program or its a cloudy day just hit the remote to open it all the way.
The service reps with VELUX are great. I could get through to them every time on the phone anytime I had a question with programming and very helpful. After about 11/2 years I was having a problem with the blind motor and talked to the rep on the phone and they sent me a brand new blind unit. I had my contractor install the first one and didn't want to mess it up so I was willing to pay Velux to install for me. I called them back and said I want a Velux trained guy to install it and the rep came out and installed for free since it was still in the warranty period. The Velux Rep also told me that who ever did the flashing did not do it correctly and should get it fix and showed my why. The only thing was weird with there service call is that you have to give them your CC number and precharge $150 and that worried me a little since they said they would do it for free, but they did not charge me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dms42 Good quality product, clear installation instructions, great value for the money.
We had two installed by our roofer. He said that these were the first Velux skylights that he's installed, and that the quality and flashing kits were much improved over the ones he'd done in the past. He has over 25 years experience as a roofer and has installed all types of skylights...he said that these were top-notch and he was pleased with the multi-layered leak protection.
From the outside, the skylights have a low profile and they look clean and modern. I have an homeowner's association and they would not have allowed me to use the big white bubble type skylights; these look nicer and they blend in nicely. It rained the day after installation, and several times since then. No leaks and the water just rolls right off.
From the inside, I love all the natural light. The light is not hot and there are no ultra-bright spots in the room. I love standing in my kitchen, looking up and watching the clouds roll by. One night, I got up and noticed a bright light in my kitchen. It was the full moon glowing through the skylight.
I plan to buy and install the solar shades before summer comes. I love that the Velux skylights have the clips pre-installed, so that all I'll have to do is snap them in.
I wanted skylights over my kitchen for more than 10 years. My only regret is that I waited so long. These are gorgeous.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EWaldron Good product, delivered quickly and in good shape
This window was delivered within 3 business days of my ordering it. The Velux installation instructions were fairly easily followed, as was the YouTube video. Have only had the window installed for a few weeks, so can't comment on durability or other product quality aspects that will take time to reveal themselves.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eltoro Never leaks, just follow the instructions.
These skylights take the risk out of leaky skylights completely. Installed 3 of them in different parts of the house. Needed the special flashing kits for tile roofs, but it was a slam dunk to install and none of them leak. Worth every penny.
