Most asked questions

Why is natural light in our living room better than artificial light?

Unlike the harsh glare and yellow-tinted color produced by artificial light, your skylight provides clear, white light which brings out the true colors of your décor and space.

What if the light causes too much of a glare?

We offer a wide selection of blinds designed to fit your skylight to let you control the amount of light in your room. They are available in two different styles: light filtering, or venetian. Also, we offer a wide array of colors and designs so you can pick the one that most matches your décor.

I have central air, do I really need a venting skylight?

A venting skylight can help your air conditioner work less. Opening the skylight helps to remove warmer air trapped at the top of your ceiling, lessen the amount of cool air needed to be produced by an air conditioner.

I'm not sure I want a skylight in my space, what are my other options?

If you're not looking to add a "window to your roof," we do offer the options of installing Sun Tunnel® skylights instead. This products brings in all the pure, natural light you would normal get with a traditional skylight, but it doesn't take away from your ceiling space. Learn more about VELUX Sun Tunnel® Skylights.

If I open my skylights, what about bugs?

We've all been there with the dreaded fly stuck in the car dilemma, and imagining that flying around in your living room seems worse. Luckily, your venting skylight comes with the option for you to add an insect screen to keep those pesky critters out while letting all the clean air in.

I heard skylights leak, is that true?

When skylights first came out, they were prone to leaks which gave them a pretty bad name. Nowadays, with the advancement of technology, VELUX manufactures skylights with a three-layer water protection that prevents any leaks. Plus, we added an installation warranty to all products installed with our skylight flashing system because we believe in our three-layer water protection. Learn more about our warranties.
