VELUX Fixed Skylight

Our deck and curb mounted fixed skylight is perfect for visually expanding areas such as hallways, stairwells, and other closed-in, dark spaces that can be transformed with light and sky views. It provides an economical choice in creating a spacious home that is filled with natural light. Heavy-duty materials ensure that our fixed skylight is built to withstand the installation process, as well as anything Mother Nature throws its way.

Price Range for a Single Fixed Skylight Install

With a small investment, you can dramatically transform any room in your home with daylight and fresh air. In the long run, installing skylights will help you save on your utility bills.

Installation Costs

Installation costs will vary according to the skylight model, number of skylights and your ceiling type. Listed below are price ranges for installation of a new, single skylight, including labor for interior and exterior finish work and for replacing an old skylight.


*All calculations are based on the estimated costs for both the product and installation. These estimates were generated assuming a typical installation and use national averages. Actual installation costs will vary from these estimates based on common variables in roof construction and shaft construction. Local delivery costs and applicable sales tax not considered for these estimates. These numbers are provided as estimates only. You must consult your contractor for validation of the actual price paid for your product and installation costs. These numbers are not intended to be used in your tax process for claiming your tax credit.

Installation Options

When it comes to installing a skylight in your home, you have the option to do-it-yourself or find an installer near you. If you opt to do-it-yourself, installation instructions and videos are available on our website to help you along the way.

Installing your own skylights is no easy task so unless you are an expert, VELUX recommends requesting a consultation with an installer near you. You will end up with less hassle.

What should you expect during a consultation?

During a consultation, an installer will come and assess the room the skylights will be placed in. The installer will be able to tell you what size skylights and how many would be best for that room and what installation style would be most efficient (e.g. deck mounted or a curb mounted). The installer would also be able to review blind options with you to complete the look of your skylight.

What should you expect during installation?

A skylight installation happens in two phases: rooftop and interior. Depending on the circumstances, such as roof pitch, interior light shaft depth and shape, and weather, installations can take between a half-day and three days. The rooftop portion of the installation includes cutting the hole and fastening the skylight to the roof with the three layers of protection found in VELUX No Leak Skylights.

It takes about a half-day per skylight to complete the interior portion of the installation, which includes drywall and painting (unless an Instant Light Shaft is used). Installers will make every effort to protect your home’s interior from dust and other installation debris. Often, they will construct a curtain of plastic sheeting around the space in your ceiling where the skylight will be installed to contain dust.

What if I have a flat ceiling?

Flat ceilings require more drywall work than vaulted ceilings. If you have a flat ceiling, your installer will use drywall to build a shaft from the skylight to direct the daylight into the room. Your installer will paint the light shaft to match the surrounding ceiling area.

Watch our short video to see how a simple skylight light shaft can dramatically change your indoor environment.
