How We Install Velux Skylights

Are you interested in bringing fresh air, daylight, and a more aesthetic living environment to your home? Do you have rooms in your home that have a shortage of natural sunlight? One of the best ways to transform your living space in a room that lacks traditional windows is to have a skylight installed. Not only can skylights boost lighting and promote an overall exquisite look in your home, but they can also save you money, improve indoor air quality, and increase your property value. Gregor Roofing installs Velux, the most recognizable brand in the skylight market. Velux has been around for over 80 years and is the most trusted skylight brand according to consumers. This article will describe how Gregor Roofing installs Velux skylights on your roof.

Installing a Skylight on Your Rooftop

Before installing your skylight, a specialist at Gregor Roofing will determine the best location for skylights in your home. Factors that are considered when installing a skylight include roof pitch, interior light shaft depth and shape, and weather. The rooftop phase of installation includes cutting a hole and fastening the skylight to the roof with three layers of protection. Velux skylights come with their own flashing kit, so you can rest assured that your roof will be leak-free once the skylight is installed. Installation can take between half a day and three days depending on specific roof circumstances.

Solar Powered Skylights

The solar-powered ‘fresh air’ skylight by Velux is a revolutionary product. This skylight is remote-controlled and features a solar panel that captures any available sunlight that acts as the power source to open and close the unit automatically. A rain sensor is built-in to close the unit if inclement weather arises while you are away from your home. The no-leak skylight carries a 10-year installation warranty, plus 20 years on glass, 10 years on product, and 5 years on shades and controls. Gregor Roofing installs solar skylights the same way that we install traditional skylights, but if you chose to go solar, you are eligible for a 30% federal solar tax credit.
