Fixed Skylights

Velux fixed skylights are the best choice for a new installation where ventilation is not needed, but a view to the outside is desired.

Skylight Solutions recommends the deck mount model for any new skylight installation. The deck mount model has an engineered flashing system that makes for a weather tight installation. It also provides the most choices in blinds and shades.

A new installation of a fixed deck mount skylight starts at $2,250.00. That includes all roof work and interior sheetrock, tape, float, texture and paint.

An economical choice for visually expanding areas such as hallways, stairwells, and other closed-in dark spaces that can be transformed with daylight and sky views.
