Can I get a manually operated shade for this model? Which one if so.

Asked by Fredo April 11, 2021
1
Answer

I am afraid we do not offer a shade for the FCM 1430 skylight model, as the width is too narrow to support the shade housing. If you would prefer a skylight with a shade, you could consider the VELUX 22-1/2 in. x 30-1/2 in. Fixed Curb-Mount Skylight with Laminated Low-E3 Glass (model FCM 2230). The FCM 2230 is available with manual or solar-powered shades! Check out the FCM 2230 at the following link: https://www.homedepot.com/p/202842937

Can the window also be manually opened and do you sell replacement batteries?

Asked by Giuseppe April 7, 2021
1
Answer

VELUX Solar-Powered skylights are operated via a wireless wall mounted remote. These units cannot be opened manually. Our solar batteries are covered by a 5-year product warranty, but they generally have a lifecycle of 10-12 years. If a replacement was needed, we do offer a replaceable sealed system that contains the skylight electronics, drive chain, and battery.

Answer

Depending on the condition of your flashing, this may be a possibility. Keep in mind, if the skylight is old enough to be replaced, we would recommend replacing the flashing system too. VELUX skylights installed properly with VELUX flashing are eligible for a 10-year "No Leak" Skylight Warranty. Better safe, than sorry.

Asked by OlallaDIYer March 30, 2021

Answers

I don't see any issue with a 3" curb as long as the EXTERIOR dimensions remain the same as indicated by the manufacturer. The skylights have a lip that goes down over the curb, which must be adhered to, to prevent leaks. If the curb is wider on the interior, I don't see that as an issue since the skylight rests on top of the curb.

What interior framing is needed and is it done before or after the skylight is installed on roof?

Do you sell this with the polycarbonate instead of the glass?

Answer

VELUX can manufacture a 2 x 4 sized domed skylight in acrylic or polycarbonate material. Please reach out to your local Home Depot Millworks Desk associate for pricing and lead time.

My outside curb measurement is 26" x 511/8", will this skylight work for me?

Asked by Piper27 March 9, 2021
1
Answer

I'm afraid this skylight does not have enough clearance (max is 26 5/8 x 50 5/8's inches) and you will want a custom sized fixed, curb mounted skylight instead. Based on your outside curb measurement, you will want the "make size" to be 27 x 52 inches for proper fitment. Please reach out to your local Home Depot Millworks Desk for pricing and lead time.

The skylight fits like a glove on the flashing.
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!

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.

Well made, easy to install. Recommend curb mounted application when installing into existing rafters that might not be spaced per required rough opening. Window crank and function could be improved, ie eight repetitions opens the window an inch (something like that but don't quote me) and the crank is a loop, like the end of an eye hook.

Very pleased with my Velux skylights! Well-made and carefully packaged. Instructions were extremely detailed and clear. Installation was straight-forward. The lights have been subjected to several heavy rains already, with no leaking whatsoever. Highly Recommended!
