  • My wife loves it!!

I wanted to install a replacement skylight on my home with power type unit so my wife could open an close it easier ,at the time the only one that was available was a hard wired system and that would make it to difficult to do myself . Velux was the answer ,the new solar powered skylight was my answer to my dilemma, I could install it myself without hard wiring it . I ordered it along with the Velux flashing kit through Home Depot online and received it in about a week right to my door . I went online and did my home work and watched the videos that Velux offered . It took me about 8 hrs to install the unit but that's because I had never installed one before , it went smoothly ,the flashing kit made it a breeze . Well we had a hard rain storm 3 days later and it works great with the automatic rain sensor , it closed the window and not a drop of rain got on our kitchen floor. We could never leave our old skylight open if there was even a chance of rain. My wife loves it , she loves the wireless remote (no more cranking) just push a button and it goes up or down . On those hot days when we get home we push a button and within an hr the house cools down 5-10 deg and saves on air conditioning. I would highly recommend these solar units, I'm sure it will pay for itself in the long run just in the savings on AC usage

It's a great looking skylight and works good too. It is a little loud opening and shutting but that's not too bad. The control panel is cool and looks nice on the wall. The item does not come with flashing which is necessary to install it. Not being aware of this we had to place a separate order and wait to have the installation completed which was a bit of a pain.

  • Awesome skylight and get the remote blind
  • January 11, 2014
  • Recommended Product

I got this skylight size but for a flat roof. I also got the programmable remote shade and am so glad I did. This thing works great and you can program hundreds of settings. I have it programmed every hour during the day so it closes little by little to keep the sun off of furniture but still gives you light and fully closed for an hour or two then back open. If you don't like the program or its a cloudy day just hit the remote to open it all the way. The service reps with VELUX are great. I could get through to them every time on the phone anytime I had a question with programming and very helpful. After about 11/2 years I was having a problem with the blind motor and talked to the rep on the phone and they sent me a brand new blind unit. I had my contractor install the first one and didn't want to mess it up so I was willing to pay Velux to install for me. I called them back and said I want a Velux trained guy to install it and the rep came out and installed for free since it was still in the warranty period. The Velux Rep also told me that who ever did the flashing did not do it correctly and should get it fix and showed my why. The only thing was weird with there service call is that you have to give them your CC number and precharge $150 and that worried me a little since they said they would do it for free, but they did not charge me.

  • Best bathroom skylight!

This skylight is now in our master bathroom and I love it! It even allows the night sky to be a natural "night light". Be sure to buy the Flashing Kit and the Manual Telescoping Control Rod too.

  • A 5-Star excellent review from a 40 year contractor/professional remodeler!
  • July 16, 2015
  • Recommended Product

Very well constructed sky light. Solid construction. Nothing is flimsy or cheap - all is high quality materials and fabrication. The product comes in a very durable cardboard box and the interior packaging is top quality which protects the skylight during shipment and loading it up on the roof for installation. Once installed it works flawlessly! The ease of the solar powered wireless remote control operation is amazing. It took no time syncing the remote to the unit. I must say the read out on the remote screen is state of the art. It looks expensive and quality when it mounts on the wall. The magnet securing the actual remote to the wall mounted cradle is clever. Best of all just today July 16, 2015 I did a walk through with the home owners (my clients) and both the husband and wife can not say enough of how pleased they are with the product or installation. As a contractor doing residential remodels for close to 40 years I absolutely would recommend this product. Only con is that I would suggest not to try this yourself. This is not a DIY project as there is too much involved with getting the opening and framing correct.

  • Cool Skylights!
  • September 24, 2015
  • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

These skylights transformed the room. I can't imagine why anyone would install those opaque plastic bubbles when these are available. We had a contractor install and I don't think he had any problems except the instructions for the blinds were useless -- a few pictures -- had to scour the internet for videos. The blinds were not difficult to install once it was clear how to do so. These things close as soon as it starts raining and the remote control is very easy to use and basically auto-configures itself. There are lots of features with the control that we haven't explored.

My skylight is built solid all the way around. The one I purchased fits perfectly between the joists and looks nice from the inside looking out from my ceiling. Although, I had a professional install it, the instructional booklet is very detailed for the DIY type person.

  • I love this skylight!
  • June 03, 2015
  • Recommended Product

I can't really talk about the ease of installation because my contractor did it. But I have had it for a year now and it doesn't leak. The remote control is very cool and I love how no electricity is required at all. Just cut a hole, install with flashing and patch the roof. It works like a charm and has totally transformed a dark bathroom. I am putting another one in my kitchen and a third in another dark bathroom. Very highly recommend this skylight.

  • Never leaks, just follow the instructions.

These skylights take the risk out of leaky skylights completely. Installed 3 of them in different parts of the house. Needed the special flashing kits for tile roofs, but it was a slam dunk to install and none of them leak. Worth every penny.

Nice looking window; installation was not a problem, was installed professionally. Only bad thing is the hook for opening and closing the window. the hook was made of plastic, and it snapped the first time we used it (with telescoping crank). We replaced it with a metal hook that we purchased from Amazon ($7) and that seems to work fine.
