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 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 BamBam This is a quality product
My skylight is built solid all the way around. The one I purchased fits perfectly between the joists and looks nice from the inside looking out from my ceiling. Although, I had a professional install it, the instructional booklet is very detailed for the DIY type person.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Nice skylight! Easy to install!
This a great product! If I had one wish: the mounting flange is very small. It is hard to nail in so close to frame. I put a couple small dents in the metal nailing it down. Coupled with the flashing kit I am sure this skylight will never leak.

Beautiful after installation. The old one was aluminum and sweated. This one didn't sweat and allowed more light in. Wonderful product. Had tremendous rain storm after installation ........... no leaks

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Andy Excellent Window
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 Lorelai Beautiful, Bright & Bragged-on!!!!
We've had this for about 16 months now - it HAS added beauty, brightness and "bragging rights" to our new home!!! My only regret is that I didn't include several more throughout our home during the initial building!!! I truly believe now that a home cannot have too many "sky lights"!!! My advice would be add one or two to almost every room and enjoy the beauty & brightness in each room you enter!!! They are truly a blessing!
