Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunny addition I had two new skylights installed and the results were terrific. It added a nice touch of sunlight in a otherwise dark room. I highly recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple grace and delight. When we bought our house, 23 years ago, it came with two skylights, not made by Velux. Over time, they died and had to be replaced. We chose Velux for the quality and the reputation. We capture the beautiful and refreshing sea breeze whenever we open them, and enjoy the beautiful sunlight that they provide year round. These add so much to the aesthetics of our home, we could not imagine life without them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy open I love the easier opening this feature has. Regardless it is a manual, It is very smooth. I have disabilities that usually make it hard to use my hands. Also, I have the automatic shade. It is wonderful to have the window opened on a sunny day and be able to close the shade, so it doesn't get to hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these skylights When we built our Cape Cod design in 1989, we decided to do without the dormers for more usable wall space. In 1990, we finished the second floor and put in 2 manual Velux skylights with internal blinds. Here we are 26 years later. One is on the sloped wall, the other higher with a tunnel. We have not had any issue with either of them and they add great light to the upstairs bedrooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible window! I added two of these windows to my 3rd floor craft room so I'd have more light and to be able to see outside - it's on the roof slope of my room so I can see the trees, street and sky. Love that I can see outside, get fresh air when it's nice outside and gives me so much light for crafting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic skylight We have had our skylight for over a year. So far it is wonderful. No leaks during the rainy season. It works great, lets in lots of light and air when open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, excellent engineering We have had this skylight for 5 years. The technical department helped me with installation in the beginning. We have never had any problems with it. It is extremely well-made and engineered. Ours has survived golfball-sized hail and I know they will endure larger hail. It is easy to open and close. After 5 years still no issues. Dealing with Velux is one of the better experiences I have had. They are very knowledgeable and helpful too. I would never buy anything else.
