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.

Questions & Answers

Can it be installed on the metal roof? Is it double or single glass?

Can it be installed on the metal roof? Is it double or single glass?
Asked by: Pavel
it is insulated (double) glass, good thermal performance. Since it is curb mounted, it can be installed on a metal roof - your roofer should be able to install flashing from roof up curb to skylight.

Does this skylite come with all flashing

Asked by: Steve
You absolutely need to buy the flashing kit designed for this skylight. The flashing kit is essential if you want to avoid leaks.

I am replacing existing skylights. Where do I measure them to get the correct size for the new ones?
Asked by: glowingmoon
If you are only replacing the curb mount lid measure the outside base of the fixed opening.

Due to winter time weather installation will be done in the Spring, however, I do not foresee any problems. Excellent instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
