How to Get It

Product Overview

VELUX skylights are an economical and energy efficient solution for adding more light to dark spaces in your home, as well as decrease the need for artificial light by bringing natural light in from above. Installing a skylight is one of the most impactful ways to enhance the brightness and beauty of a room, transforming ordinary areas into dramatic living spaces. VELUX operable "Fresh Air" skylights can be opened to create a chimney effect that draws air upward to improve air circulation and air quality within your home.
  • VELUX "No Leak" Skylights qualify for the 10-year "No Leak" installation warranty when installed with VELUX flashing (sold separately) for the appropriate roof type and pitch
  • Solar powered deck mount venting skylights (VSS) are eligible for up to a 26% federal tax credit on both product and installation costs, and can be installed on shingle, shake, slate, or metal roofs
  • FS or VS skylight models with the "Go Solar" option are also tax credit-eligible, and include a solar powered blind, remote control, and internet gateway, which allows you to operate the blind with your smartphone
  • Solar powered & electric skylights (VSS and VSE) have an integrated rain sensor, which automatically closes the skylight during inclement weather
  • Laminated glass is recommended and is required by most building codes for out of reach applications
  • VELUX "Clean, Quiet and Safe" Low-E3 laminated glass has a Neat glass coating that keeps your skylight cleaner, reduces unwanted outside noise, and comes with a 10-year hail warranty against glass breakage
  • Since most VELUX deck mount skylight models are installed out of reach, manual venting skylights include a hook for operating the skylight, but a ZZZ 201 crank handle is sold separately for in-reach applications
  • Manual venting skylight control rod (ZCT 300) for out of reach applications is sold separately, and can operate multiple skylights
  • If a custom product is included returns could be ineligible.

Replaced existing Velux with this unit
These 2 units were purchased as equivalent sized replacement for older failed Velux units. The original units had wood clad interior, very nice looking. These have white vinyl interior trim, which is not explained in the description on line. However, they do look nice. They were not quite an exact replacement, and we did have to cut back the shingle roofing about an inch on all sides to accommodate the flange (deck mount). Also, the flashing kit isn't really designed for replacement, just for new installation, so we had to modify that application, but I'm confident it will work fine and has so far proved watertight in the recent rainstorms here in the PNW springtime.

Great Product. No complaints - installed for over a year
I really like these windows. I bought 2 and wish i could have put in 8. They allow a ton of light in and work smoothly. Tip - FOr the frim i used 1x material and planed it down to 1/2 to slip in like the sheetrock would. this was on a rafter roof. Also on a rafter roof install don't forget to drill the proper amount and size of holes above and below skylight so the roof still vents from the eve to the ridge. I think this is a problem for many skylight leaks that actually are condensation issues due to improper installation.

      JUST HAD IT INSTALLED. MY CONTRACTOR HAD NEVER INSTALLED A SKYLIGHT LET ALONE A VELUX SKYLIGHT. THE INSTALL WAS SIMPLE AND INSTRUCTIONS WERE EASY TO FOLLOW. YEARS AGO I PERSONALLY INSTALLED TWO OF THESE IN A PREVIOUS HOME AND REMEMBER THAT IT WAS FAIRLY EASY TO INSTALL AND HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH ANY LEAKS. THIS IS WHY I DECIDED TO USE THESE AGAIN IN THIS HOME AND I AM GLAD I DID. ADDS A LOT OF LIGHT IN A DARK ROOM. MY ONLY REGRET WAS NOT GETTING THE AUTO CONTROLLED UNIT AND INSTALLING THEM. BUT THESE WILL WORK OUT WELL.

      First rate product. Flashing kit is very comprehensive. Up to 4:12 roof a competent DIYer could self install. Steeper than that, hire a specialist! Installation is pricey as many shingles must be removed/replaced. Assume that all shingles you remove will be damaged and need replaced with new to avoid surprises. Note that this unit is narrower than fixed lights which are made to fit rafters/trusses that are on 24" centers, so fillers are needed both sides of R.O.
