Replacing A Skylight

We recommend replacing your skylights when you reroof. It’s the most cost-efficient way, and it allows you to synchronize your roof and skylight warranties.

VELUX skylights bring energy efficiency to your home.

If a new roof isn’t in your near future, consider replacing an older skylight to improve the energy efficiency of your home. At VELUX, we improve the energy performance of our skylights with each new model, so even if you have an older VELUX skylight that works fine, it is often worth replacing it with a newer model.

  1. 01 Improve Home Efficiency

    Our current skylight models come standard with dual paned, LoE3 coated glass, which improves the energy performance rating by 35 percent over skylights from the early 1990s constructed with dual pane clear glass. And if you have acrylic bubble skylights on your home, the energy performance gain is even greater. Our newest models also feature Clean, Quiet and Safe glass with Neat® glass technology.

  2. 02 Tax Credits & Solar Power Mean Savings for You

    VELUX No Leak Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylights qualify for a 30 percent federal tax credit on product and installation. If you have an older fixed skylight, upgrade to a Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylight and bring fresh air as well as natural light into your home for an average of just $100 more than a standard fixed skylight after tax credit eligibility. Available through December 31, 2019, this tax credit is a direct debit of the taxpayer’s total tax liability. If you’re considering a replacement Manual “Fresh Air” Skylight, you could upgrade to the Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylight and save about $140 after tax credit eligibility.

  • Add skylight solar blinds for an additional tax credit.

    Add VELUX solar powered skylight blinds and receive another 30 percent tax credit on product and installation. In addition to savings, solar blinds give you control over the light and improve your skylight's energy performance.

  • The VELUX No Leak Skylight gives you peace of mind.

    Daylight skylights come with the No Leak Promise, a 10-year warranty on product and installation.

    Synchronize your skylight warranties.

    If you're replacing your roof, you can sync your 20-year VELUX product warranty with a 20-year warranty on a new roof for optimum peace of mind.
