Curb Mounted Skylights
Curb mounted skylights are the most common skylight type. This design requires a box structure for the unit to sit on.
The skylight is designed to sit over the curb like a lid on a shoe box. One of the benefits of this design is the ability to replace older skylights without having to re-flash the skylight at the same time. This can greatly reduce the amount of labor required. Another benefit is the ease to manufacture custom sizes.
The downside is the higher profile created by the curb and the decreased energy efficiency as most existing curbs are not insulated beyond the 1 ½” thickness of the curb itself.
Deck Mounted Skylights
Deck mounted skylights are a more recent design that lowers the profile of the unit and increases the energy efficiency by ‘hugging’ the roof. In this design, the curb is the skylight itself. Higher quality manufacturers, such as Velux, have perfected the art over the last several decades by producing integral flashing kits for various sizes and roofing types.
The lower profile provides a better visual appeal, inside and out, and the increased energy efficiency provides a more comfortable living space and peace of mind. Deck mounted skylights are the choice for new construction or for installing new skylights to existing homes.
Custom Fixed Curb Mounted Skylights
Time to time we come across situations where fitting a skylight with standard measurements is a challenge. Velux has made it easier for us installers to keep the interior of the opening the same, but fit perfectly with perfect measurements on the outside. Custom size skylight takes a few weeks for delivery but are perfect solution when it comes to saving money but not making any interior changes.
Solar Powered Venting Skylights
The Solar Powered Skylight (available for both deck and curb mount installations) features a solar panel that captures available daylight and uses it to recharge a highly efficient, fully concealed battery powered operator and control system. This operator is the power source that opens and closes the skylight, negating the need for electrical wiring during installation.

They provides an economical choice in creating a spacious home that is filled with natural light.
Story behind the best skylight manufacturer
Villum Rasmussen, an entrepreneur, and inventor brought up a great idea which when applied could turn dark attics into spaces anyone could live comfortably with the full daylight and fresh air – this was in 1941. With an idea of making living spaces health friendly with proper ventilation and natural lights, Velux offers a wide range of roofing and skylight products.
Rasmussen’s first ever roof window got its patent right in 1942 and the success story started. VELUX was coined out from Ventilation and Lux (a Latin word that means light), VE + LUX meaning Velux. Just in a few decades, with dedication and intense effort, Rasmussen and his group had a great record of its product usage across Europe and America.
Right from time, Velux has maintained a track record of successful project managements when it comes to roofing and improving home ventilation. As part of his first commissions in the industry, he supplied roof windows to some schools where they served great purposes. Learning under appropriate natural light and properly ventilated classrooms became easier and achievable in some schools with the assistance and products from Velux. Over the years, Velux has always maintained a goal of supplying roof windows that is as perfect as the best vertical window one can ever get.
Despite the effects of the war that halted many establishments and startups, Velux thrived after the war and their products were high on demands. Rasmussen believed high quality and standard products as well tapping into the ever-evolving technologies and innovations to remain relevant while offering unmatched services and products.
Velux proves with their product collect are just the best when it comes to striking a balance between energy and comfort in an indoor environment. In line with the series of products Velux launched over the years, it launched a new generation of roof windows in 2012. These roof windows come with improved energy balance. These skylights are apt for proper ventilation and fresh air circulation in commercial buildings.
Today, Velux has grown from a skylight startup to a reputable brand with a wide range of solutions and products that form part of what is needed for an improved life quality and a better environment. The benefits of skylights and proper aeration in schools, home, and even commercial places cannot be overemphasized and having the right product and team to install, repair and maintain your systems are paramount. We are a brand that also shares the same philosophy as Velux. Being a strong partner, we get some of the products we use for our services from them as they only offer high-quality and standard products. Likewise, we have some other brands we partner to get the right products that fit our clients’ project in each case.
