      by|May 27, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  VELUX venting curb-mounted skylights will have a drive chain that pushes the sash open and not suitable for Egress. Consider our CXP model for flat roofs or our GPU or GXU if you have a sloped roof scenario. Be sure to call VELUX @ 1-800-888-3589 for more details.

        Q:Can you put a reflective film on the inside glass?
        by|May 25, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Please do not put reflective film onto VELUX Skylights as this can create a "heat sink" which can crack the glass. If you need to reduce heat gain and light, choose a VELUX solar powered shade instead. It will include a remote control and is eligible for a 30% Federal Tax Credit too!

            Brighter and cleaner
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We replaced two dome shaped skylights with Velux skylights in the roof of our covered patio. We like how much brighter these skylights are.

              Replaced three and fit perfectly!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought these to replace my 15 year old VELUX skylights. They old ones did not leak... but since we were doing the roof, wanted new sky lights and a new warranty. We have them in fixed and solar! They fit in the old opening perfectly and had minimal disruption to interior sheetrock. I think they are upgraded to the previous design and look well made. We've had VELUX brand skylights in our home for 40 years! Our first ones had a crank and pole opener! Solar is great! Glad to have used a company around this long that makes the same sizes! My roofer said other companies (like Andersen) have stopped making skylights.

              Queen Bee, excellent photo! Solar is an excellent source of sustainable light and ventilation. You picked the perfect time to upgrade to solar and take advantage of the solar tax credit. We are thrilled we've been apart of your families home for decades! Thank you!

                      Velux will NOT honor warranty!
                      I had two of these installed by a Velux contractor. In year five--last year--one leaked above the LR. Velux sent out the same installer, who blamed the fire prinkler system---which is not even near the skylights, and was found in perfect condition by my insurance adjuster! Despite the ten-year warranty, and it being only year 5, Velux refuses to fix it! Lots of complaints on BBB re this. I guess they'll next blame aliens! I'll be suing them when the rain stops.

                        Good Quality Product
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recently had my cottage reroofed and replaced two existing skylights with two Velux fixed Skylights. They look great, are well constructed and look like they will hold up for a long time. The price was also very reasonable.

                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Installed this past summer and I love the light it provides in our loft. Velux products are so well made and they stand behind their products. Wouldn't think of installing any other brand.
