There are two main ways to install a Sun Tunnel® in your home: with an installer or roofer, or as a DIY option. Because Sun Tunnel® Skylights can be a complex home DIY project involving roof work and correct installation to receive warranty coverage, we recommend installing or replacing your own only if you have experience working with them before.
Installer vs DIY
Choosing to work with a professional for your Sun Tunnel® journey involves an installer or general roofer coming to your home and working with you on design, planning, and pricing. Ideally, the installer will have your desired Sun Tunnel® in stock and can quickly install it. Otherwise, they will have to order it from the manufacturer.
To DIY your Sun Tunnel® installation, you’ll need to buy the tube, interior and exterior parts through an authorized dealer such as Lowes, Home Depot, or other home improvement store. Typically, authorized dealers are staffed by knowledgeable employees that can help you answer any questions you have on the installation process. For VELUX Sun Tunnel® Skylights, you’ll also need to make sure to install them with VELUX flashing to ensure warranty coverage.
