The Benefits of VELUX Skylights and Roof Windows
Innovative, energy-efficient, and eco-friendly, VELUX skylights and roof windows add value to your home in many ways. Here are just a few of their many benefits:
Increased Natural Light
Studies show that exposure to natural light improves mental health and mood, and helps with concentration, productivity, and sleep patterns. VELUX skylights and roof windows allow you to enjoy all these benefits without having to leave your house! The natural light from the sun will also help brighten up the space, make it feel more spacious, and reduce the need for artificial lighting during the day, saving you money on electricity bills.
Improved Air Quality
VELUX skylights and roof windows allow fresh air to filter into your home and circulate throughout the home, which provides better air quality for you and your family. This helps reduce the number of pollutants inside your home and prevents mold growth as well as other problems related to poor ventilation such as asthma attacks or allergies.
Enhanced Indoor Climate
VELUX Skylights help regulate humidity levels throughout the year by allowing hot air to escape through open windows and doors while preventing excessive moisture build-up during cold weather months.
Increased Property Value
Installing VELUX Skylights will not only increase your home’s comfort but also its value. If you plan on selling your home in the future, adding VELUX skylights is one of the easiest ways to increase its value without making any major structural changes.
VELUX skylights and roof windows last for decades so you can enjoy their energy-saving benefits for years to come. Their UV-resistant glass helps prevent color fading while their impact-resistant frames ensure they withstand even severe weather conditions like hurricanes and tornadoes. They also meet or exceed all U.S./Canadian building codes including those for use on flat roofs where they are designed to withstand wind loads up to 225 mph (362 km/h).
Brings the Outside In
Velux roof windows are the ideal way to bring the outdoors into your home. These high-quality skylights let you transform your home into a bright, cheerful space with stunning views of the sky or garden. With Velux windows, you’ll never have to choose between enjoying your home’s natural surroundings and peace of mind.
The Velux Warranty is Industry-Leading
With systems designed by leading architects, designers, and engineers, Velux roof windows and skylights come with a 10-year “No Leak” installation warranty that covers correct skylight and appropriate flashing installations (product and labor) against leaks. With the industry’s most comprehensive warranty, you can be sure that your Velux skylight or roof window will be working properly for years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions About Velux Skylights and Roof Windows Repair and Installation
Q: Why should I replace my old skylight?
A: The answer is simple: because it’s not doing its job. Old, broken, and outdated skylights are not only ugly but also inefficient. They let in too much heat and glare, which can make rooms unbearably hot in the summer, or cause your family to squint in the glaring sun. If you’re unsure about what kind of work is needed on your skylight, we can help you determine whether it needs repair or replacement by conducting a free inspection.
Q: How do I know if my roof is strong enough to support a Velux skylight?
A: The best way to determine if your roof is strong enough to support a Velux skylight is to call our experienced contractor. Our skilled team will be able to assess your specific situation and help you make the right decision for your home.
Q: My skylight leaks during heavy rains. What can I do about this?
A: The most common reason for water leakage in skylights is improper flashing around the edges of the unit. While it is possible that this problem could be due to improper installation, it is more likely that your flashing needs replacing or repairing. If you are having problems with leaking skylights, contact an experienced contractor for advice on how to correct the problem.
Q: How much does it cost to install a Velux Skylight?
A: The cost of installing a Velux Skylight varies depending on how many skylights you want installed, where they’re going and what type of roofing material you have on your home. Pricing also varies depending on whether you have an existing opening or need one cut into your roof deck. We recommend contacting us for an estimate for your specific needs.
Q: How do I know if my roof window needs to be repaired/replaced?
A: If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, your Velux roof window may need repair/replacement:
- Water leaks on the inside or outside of the unit.
- Cloudy or dirty glass.
- Mold or mildew growing in the unit.
- Cracked or broken glass.
- An uneven appearance on the roof may indicate a broken flashing or sealant around your skylight.
Remember that the only way to know for sure is by having a professional look at it for you.
Q: Can I save money by installing or replacing my existing Velux Skylight or Roof Windows by myself?
A: It’s possible but not recommended! You could save money but at what cost to your safety and security in the home or business? The average homeowner doesn’t have access or experience with roof structures or installing skylights and roof windows so it would be best to hire someone who does! It could potentially save you some money but not at what cost to your personal safety or home. If you’re not sure that you want to tackle the job yourself, or if you don’t know what kind of tools or materials are required, we recommend hiring professionals like us at Camden Roofing to do the job for you.
