Having Watkins Construction and Roofing install new skylights or roof windows is an exciting project that can really transform the look and feel of a room. By providing improved ventilation and better lighting, skylights and roof windows also increase the value of a home. But not all skylights are created equal. That’s why thousands of homeowners have chosen products from VELUX, the world leader in the manufacturing of skylights and roof windows.
5 COMPONENTS OF VELUX
All VELUX products feature high-quality craftsmanship at affordable prices.
Manufactured with superior materials, VELUX skylights, roof windows and accessories exhibit durability and high-quality craftsmanship down to the smallest detail.
VELUX roof windows and skylights feature Neat® glass coating, enabling the skylight to stay cleaner longer, and leaving the surface virtually spotless.
VELUX roof windows and skylights reduce unwanted outside noise by up to 25 percent more than a standard double-pane glass, and up to 50 percent more than a plastic skylight.
Adhering to all building codes, VELUX recommends, and building codes require, laminated glass for out-of-reach applications.
RANGE OF PRODUCTS
Available to builders, architects, merchants and consumers throughout the United States, VELUX skylights and roof windows are complemented by a range of blinds, electronic accessories, solar panels and shades.
With skylight models of all sizes to fit both large and small spaces in an aesthetically pleasing manner, VELUX has all the skylight options and information you need to make an informed decision.
VELUX offers The Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylight, which features a solar panel that captures any available daylight and uses it to recharge a highly efficient, fully concealed battery-powered operator and control system. The unit also features a built-in rain sensor to close the skylight automatically when inclement weather occurs.
To improve efficiency and ensure that your skylight provides you with plenty of uninterrupted light and enjoyment, VELUX utilizes specially designed skylight flashing kits. These kits are designed to shed water without relying on sealants that can break down over time, saving you money on repairs — and frustration — due to water leaks. A variety of skylight flashing systems are available to ensure a weathertight fit for virtually all roof types and slopes.
For those seeking a vastly improved lighting system, the VELUX SUN TUNNEL is the solution. This specialized sun tunnel bypasses all obstacles, using an adaptable reflecting tube to direct daylight into every corner of your home. The effect results in a brighter living space, improving comfort and helping to save on energy.
VELUX skylights can be completed with a VELUX blind, which offers effective sun screening to suit every need. A variety of colors are available, along with the option for manual or electrically/solar powered operation.
