    Your constructive comments are appreciated. VELUX Skylights are built to last and should be fairly intuitive to operate. For questions contact direct at 800-888-3589. Thank you.
      Love them!
      We got a great deal on 2 of these sky lights and we love them . They were a great addition to our bonus room.

        Replacement for 35 year old TPS Velux units
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought 2 of these to replace some 35 year old TPS units from Velux. They matched the old size very well. It won't take much to finish the inside.

          Solar shaded fixed skylight
          We’ve had these for a few months now and we’re very pleased with them. VELUX tech support was very helpful with the programming of the solar shades. A total of 10 skylights were replaced.

            Nice skylights, but cheap screens
            We just replaced two old skylights. The new ones look great, but we are disappointed in the screens which are cheap and do not fit tightly (i.e. there are gaps big enough on the sides to let insects in).

                Amazing skylights
                We love our new fixed skylights with integrated shades. They provide us much needed light in our lounge area and make the house inside and out look amazing. The installation process was straight forward and their qualified installers certainly know their business. Cannot recommend them enough. They are amazing.

                  Major upgrade
                  We replaced 4 of the old "bubble style" plastic skylights when we replaced our roof recently and the Velux models are a major upgrade! 3 of the 4 we replaced with the Velux VCM model and it is so nice to be able to open these up and let in some fresh air - especially at night during the Summer months. We also got these with pre-installed white blinds that are solar powered and remote controlled and I am so glad that we spent the extra money for this feature - well worth it! So nice to be able to close these during the hot afternoon sun and block out the extra heat, and I am really glad that we opted for the remote control option as it makes it so easy to control these throughout the day. I am also impressed with the overall quality and the thermopane glass. No leaks, no drafts and less heat loss in the winter. Our roofer told us that he does not like to install any other brand -- in fact he charges extra for any other brand to cover his call-backs. We installed almost 2 years ago and we have been very happy.

                    Big change in the feeling of the room since replacing a fixed old leaky skylight with this beauty. Shade operates well via push button, and can be opened incrementally. Love it.

                    Impressive upgrade from old version
                    Love this new skylight. Shade is perfect for when the sun bears down in hot weather and keeps my kitchen cool. Will be wonderful in the cold New England winter for letting the sunshine in to brighten the area.

                      Remote control is wonderful !!
                      Bought the skylight with shade to replace a current no shade skylight and love it !! Very hot in Texas so remote control allows shade to be closed in hottest part of day and open during the mornings. Makes a lot of difference in cooling the house.

                        More light than previous operable skylights
                        New roof installed with 3 Velux fixed skylights 2 with solar blackout blinds. Only 1week ago. They allow more light than the previous skylights which were operable and so had a bigger frame area.

                          Great Purchase!
                          Replaced old skylight that was over 20 years old as it was installed when we had the house built. This replacement has brought new life in our house. We can actually see the blue sky and that is so wonderful. When we get hot sunny days, we close the dark shade. We picked that dark shade as we are in Texas and we get really hot days. This was a great investment and highly recommend. You will not regret this purchase and we should have done this replacement years ago.

                            Skylight with Solar Shade
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Installed the new fixed skylight to replace an older Velux skylight that leaked. Purchased this skylight with the solar shade. So far so good with the skylight and the shade.

                              Much cleaner look
                              We had our old bubble skylight replaced with a Velux skylight. The old one had been damaged by hail. We were amazed at how quickly the replacement went and how clear and clean the new skylight looks.

                                  We just had these skylights installed a week ago to replace 30 year old plastic ones and so far they are great! Huge improvement from the old ones. They are so clear, not drafty, and dont make noise when rain hits them. We got the ones with the solar room darkening shades and they work well so far.

                                      Solar Powered Room Darkening Blinds
                                      We purchased two (2) existing skylights with new Velux, Fixed Closed Skylights with Solar Powered Room Darkening Blinds. They were installed within four hours including the removal/installation, roof material replacement and sealing. We are especially fond of the seperate remotes controls that eliminates the need for attic mounted power supplies and the wall key-pads from the old skylights.

                                        We had four skylights installed 2 weeks ago. The skylights look great and we love the solar blinds. We have had three days of rain and has no problems.

                                          Wonderful new skylight. Faces the south-east sky so lots of sun. The solar powered blinds were a must for me and working great.

                                            We love our skylights! We put 3 in a bonus room with slanted ceilings and they give enough light and fresh air to this room. They are easy to open as well. When we put on a new roof we replaced our old Velux skylights with new Velux skylights! They are perfect. Highly recommend!

                                              Great light in the house with the new skylight
                                              The amount of light let in by the skylight is amazing. Really brightens up our house. Installation was finished in one day and the drywaller finished up the next day. With the solar shade, the skylight was reasonably priced. We love this addition to our house

                                                          Beautiful skylights! The 4 we just installed follow 2 that we already had in another room. We love the light they add to our home and love that they don't leak of fog up. The 4 we just put in are on a covered porch that's 20' X 30' and allow us to let fresh air in, if we want to. Great product!
