Velux Skylights For Your Roof

By fiderioandsons Jan 18, 2013

Looking to upgrade your roof in 2013? There are plenty of ways to revive your old roof, including the installation of Velux skylights. Why should you consider adding a skylight to your home? What are the benefits of Velux skylights? Why is the Velux Sun Tunnel’ the most innovative skylight in the industry? Fiderio & Sons is here to give you the know-how on why adding Velux skylights to your roof will transform your home and save you money.

Velux offers residential roofing skylights that can brighten up any room in your home. They now offer a new innovative technology that we love- a Sun Tunnel. The Sun Tunnel (both for commercial and residential roofs) is a tubular skylight that brings direct light into any room. According to Velux’s website, the Sun Tunnel is engineered to capture light through a high impact dome on the roof, directing light rays through the tunnel and transmitting pure natural light into a room. The result is a bright, naturally lighted roof anywhere in your house or office.

Here are a 5 more reasons why we love the Velux skylights:

1) Velux skylights provide natural light to your home

  • They make any room brighter- providing 30% more light than vertical windows
  • They provide natural light – no artifical lighting, allowing for a more natural home environment

2) Velux skylights are easy for any roofer to install 

  • The Sun Tunnel skylight can go through any obstacles (attics, etc.) and still deliver natural light into any room in the house
  • A qualified roofer can easily install the skylights

3) They are a seamless addition to your home

  • The domed top of the Sun Tunnel blends in with any roof
  • No one would ever know your roof has a skylight, or two, installed in it

4) Velux skylights are energy efficient

  • Skylights can save big money on lighting and heating bills
  • They provide an economical approach to natural light and are green friendly

5) Velux skylights are high quality

  • They are rigorously tested and exposed to extreme climates in order to ensure durability and function year round
  • They have guarantees and follow strict industry standards
  • The skylights are also watertight, an essential peace of mind feature with any roofing product

VELUX SUN TUNNEL’ skylights admit passive light from the Sun without the normal heat emitted by electrical light sources thus replacing or reducing the need for artificial lighting.
Pretty neat bathroom renovation, right? Natural light can do wonders for the home.
