Which installation is right for you?
VELUX "Fresh Air" and fixed skylights come in both deck mounted and curb mounted styles. Your skylight installer is the best person to decide which style works for your home.
Curb Mounted Skylight
The skylight is mounted on a wooden frame, known as a curb, that the installer builds around the opening on your roof. Curb mounted skylights are ideal for flat roofs up to a pitch of 60 degrees.
Deck Mounted Skylight
The skylight’s deck seal is nailed directly to your roof deck for a low profile, energy-efficient installation. Deck mounted skylights are best for roofs with a pitch between 14 and 85 degrees.
