Why Install VELUX?

Benefits of VELUX Skylights

VELUX has been a world leader in skylights and roof windows for over 80 years because of our dedication to quality, innovation, and customer experience. Our fleet of modern and classic products can fit the needs of any homeowner and are backed by our industry-leading warranty.
1 Healthier Home

Providing abundant natural light and fresh air, skylights help create a healthier home environment for your customers while saving them in the long run on HVAC and other utility costs. And with the potential to open up a livable attic space, skylights are a design solution that increase the livable square footage of any home.
2 Increase Profits

VELUX skylights provide you with a solution that distinguishes your business from the competition, allowing you to provide more value to your customers. And while your customers enjoy a happier, healthier home with skylights, you can increase your profits by 28-36% compared to just selling a roof! Your VELUX rep can even discuss the added value of skylights with you and your customers to help ensure the sale.
3Industry-Leading Warranty

VELUX deck- and curb-mounted skylights come with our patented design that includes three layers of water protection: a pre-attached deck seal or gasket, adhesive underlayment, and custom engineered flashing. VELUX skylights also are protected by an industry-leading installation warranty of 10 years for skylights and 20 years for Sun Tunnel® skylights.
4 Custom Skylights
Creating the perfect skylight for any space can be easily done with an array of customizable options to fit the needs of any homeowner. VELUX skylights can be installed in many different sizes with different types of glass, finishes and shades for all types of skylight projects.

What Products are Available?

Venting vs. Non-Venting

VELUX offers customers with a variety of options when it comes to venting and non-venting skylights. Our fixed skylights, flat roof skylights, and SkyMax can be installed on a wide range of roof sizes and pitches, giving a homeowner many choices for installing a non-venting skylight. VELUX venting skylights have solar, electric, and manual options that make access to fresh air easy with the touch of a button or the turn of a handle.
VELUX offers both fixed and venting skylights

Manual vs. Solar

VELUX solar-powered skylights feature a discreet solar panel to capture available daylight as a power source to open and close the skylight. A rain sensor is equipped to close the unit during inclement weather. VELUX manual skylights open and close by hand with a smooth turning handle for in-reach applications and a rod for out-of-reach ones.

Adding a Sun Tunnel® skylight is a cost-effective way to include natural light to areas that need a brighter, more vibrant appearance. Their low-profile design creates a sleek appearance on any roofline, and their pre-fabricated light tunnel makes them quick and easy to install. Not to mention, they come with a 20-year tunnel warranty.
