VELUX FCM model skylights can be ordered in either white or obscure laminated glass as both are meant for privacy concerns while still allowing light into your living space. This is a special order item and a quote can be obtained through your local Home Depot store Mill Works Desk associate.

Answer

This skylight is recommended for a rough opening of 46 1/2 x 46 1/2 inches. If you are considering closing in the opening, this skylight will work. If not, consider ordering a custom sized, fixed curb mounted skylight instead. If you have additional questions about your project and would like to call VELUX directly, please dial 1-800-888-3589 for assistance.

That is correct. Our fixed curb mounted skylight can be installed vertically or in a horizontal position. You will require a different flashing kit when installed horizontally. Be sure to contact VELUX directly for details by calling 1-800-888-3589.

Asked by Bob September 23, 2020

Answers

Hi Bob. That is correct, water will pool on the flat glass surface until it evaporates. You can add a slight pitch to the curb to allow the water to drain off of it and that will keep the exterior glass cleaner, longer. If you have additional questions and would like to call us, please dial 1-800-888-3589 and we will be happy to discuss your project.

Outstanding Skylights
Customer review from whyskylights.com logo
Just replaced three 24 year old VELUX skylights in outer Hearth Room. They were replaced due to hail storm damage on the cladding. The design and build of the new skylights is outstanding as is the warranty associated with the lights!

Perfect replacement for old skylights
Customer review from whyskylights.com logo
I had 30 year old Velux skylights that came with the house I purchased a few years back and there have been some leaks...not sure of the cause as could be shingles related, flashing related, or just old skylights. I wanted to re-do the flashing and shingles, but I decided to just put in new skylights as long as I have everything off and make everything last another 30 years. I separately purchased the Velux flashing kits that go with M08 skylights I had, so I would recommend getting those as well as it came not only with the metal flashing pieces, it also came with the adhesive flashing as shown in attached pic.

The skylight fits like a glove on the flashing. Well designed and engineered, NO hassle with alignment or fitting, not often you'll find that the flashing kits fits exact with the skylight. I bought the 22 1/2 x 34 1/2, my review doesn't seem to go under the size of window I bought, anyways, great buy. I'm not a contractor, just a handy DIY guy. Thanks.

Just tested the hook.When I started to turn it by the rod, then it broke into 3 pieces right away. The hook is made by plastic which can not bear the twisting. Now I need to climb a ladder and use my hand to twist the hook manually every time I want to open the sky window.

We had 2 cracked dome plastic skylights that were over 25 years old. Now buying the domed type costs more than the flat glass, so we ended up buying 4 to make them all match. These VELUX Fixed Curb-Mount Skylights fit perfectly over our existing curbs! Installation was super easy. The flat profile looks so much better from the outside. And the clear glass really brightens the room!

What a difference!!
Customer review from whyskylights.com logo
We got two fixed skylights with blinds for our North-facing living room. What a dramatic improvement! Paired them with the Neatmo hub and now we can open/close the blinds away from home if need be. So glad we made this decision. It was expensive, but because it’s solar powered we’ll get a 30% tax credit!

We installed a pair of 22.5" x 22.5" solar-powered, fresh-air venting skylights to replace a much older fixed skylight in a vaulted ceiling. UPS delivered both units in perfect condition, arriving here in Hawaii within a few days of it being shipped. The only qualm was finding quite a bit of plastic shavings trapped between the screen and the glass of the skylight, as though it was never cleaned out before testing and packaging the units. Those were easily swept out before the final installation. The installation was easy enough. The most difficult part was finding the "on" switch. There's an opening along the bottom, inside edge of the skylight, and the small red sliding switch was recessed well within that opening. I had to use the blunt end of a barbecue stick to move the switch to the "on" position. After that, programming the remote to operate this solar-powered skylight was simple. The existing curbs for the original skylights were actually slightly undersized which meant additional framing had to be added to the outer perimeter of the original curbs. While this meant the skylights were a perfect fit, it also meant that the screens can't be removed -- because the original light shaft is smaller than it should be for this skylight. We didn't want to cut into the roof and build a whole new curb since the existing one was working fine and wasn't leaking at all. And it's not a big deal that the screens can't be removed. It can still be cleaned when necessary. What caught our attention, when we were looking for a skylight that could be opened, was that these automatically close when it starts raining. We were concerned that one day the skylights would be accidentally left open during a typical unexpected Hawaiian rain shower. Testing it with an artificial rain shower from a garden hose proved that it works as advertised. The skylights open and close slowly, taking around 70 seconds to fully open or close. The best part is that these venting skylights keep hot air from building up due to the vaulted ceiling, and allow the fresh tradewinds to circulate through the room. Time will tell as to how well they hold up. But they worked perfectly the moment they were in place.
