With our team’s extensive experience in both consultation and skylight installation, you can trust our Velux certified skylight installers to provide you with the right products and perform a seamless installation.
The Benefits of Natural Light
Did you know that being exposed to natural light can benefit both your physical and mental health? It’s true! Most skylights, for instance, can let up to 200% more daylight into your home, which can significantly improve your family’s well-being.
Sunlight exposure not only lowers the risk of Seasonal Affective Disorder but also enhances productivity and even bolsters short-term memory. These advantages can significantly influence the development of children and offer a noticeable energy boost for individuals working from home.
Since the large majority of our time is spent indoors, maintaining good light and air quality in your home will go a long way towards protecting your health. With the installation of a venting skylight, achieving a healthy indoor climate is easier than ever before.
Instead of simply bringing in fresh air like a window would, a venting skylight facilitates the removal of hot, stale air, as well as unwanted odors, so you can regulate temperature and humidity levels with ease.
Whether you’re undertaking a new construction project, replacing an outdated fixed skylight, or finally tackling those much-awaited home renovations, rest assured, we have the perfect residential skylight for your needs. No matter if you reside in the York Region, Durk Region, Simcoe Region, Durham Region or the District of Muskoka, we’ve got you covered.
Our residential Velux skylight models include:
- Solar Powered Venting Skylights – Features a solar panel that charges the battery-powered control system, which opens and closes this skylight. A built-in rain sensor closes this skylight in the event of inclement weather while you’re away from home.
- Electric Venting Skylights – With a swipe of the touch screen remote, this skylight opens to let fresh air in. Also features an automatic sensor that will close this skylight when it rains.
- Manual Venting Skylights – These manual skylights are easily opened and closed with VELUX accessories. For skylights within arm’s reach, a smooth-turning handle is available. Control rods are sold separately for out-of-reach installations.
- Fixed Skylights – Delivered with pre-finished white interior wood frame, these skylights are available in aluminum or copper exterior finish.
- Flat Roof Skylights – Available in fixed, venting and exit models, these skylights can help brighten any flat-roof building.
The benefits of sunlight are not limited to your home life, they could also have a positive impact on your business, or in any commercial setting.
In work environments lacking ample windows, such as flat-roof warehouses, office buildings, or industrial spaces, a commercial skylight can uplift employees. By ensuring optimal light distribution across the building while minimizing glare, although they might seem expensive, skylights boost morale and productivity in a way that other light solutions can’t match.
Our commercial Velux skylight models include:
- Dynamic Dome – A new and innovative skylight that meets exacting structural demands with an architecturally progressive design.
- Traditional Double Dome Commercial Skylights – Available in custom sizes in ¼” increments from 14″ x 14″ up to 102″ x 150″, works with all VELUX commercial skylight curb and fall protection accessories.
- Fixed Curb Mount Skylights – An economical option to fill spaces with natural light.
- Roof Monitors – Providing uniform light and eliminating glare. VELUX has three different roof monitor skylights to match the architectural style of the building.
All Velux skylights use industry-leading glass with a special coating to protect against heat loss and provide energy savings. High energy efficiency and great thermal performance are standard features, no matter which of Velux’s five glass types you choose.
Velux’s laminated glass products feature a Neat® coating that stays cleaner for longer than untreated glass and reduces the infiltration of unwanted outside noise.

Many bathrooms, hallways, as well as the unique nooks and crannies found in older homes receive very little natural light, which can make these spaces feel cold, dark and unwelcoming. For that reason we are proud to offer the new Velux Sun Tunnel skylight – the most innovative skylight in the industry.
Sometimes called solar tubes, sun tunnels are a great way to bring warm, natural light into areas of your home where installing a traditional skylight would be impossible. This natural-light solution is best suited for situations where the design of a building makes it impossible to install a regular skylight, particularly when the space between the roof and the ceiling of a room is too great.
With a sun tunnel, even these poorly lit and isolated spaces will bathe in warm, restorative light. Velux sun tunnels spread daylight throughout a room or hallway, which can have a dramatic impact on not only how the space looks but also how it feels for the occupants.
Sun Tunnel Design and Function
A sun tunnel skylight is a highly-reflective cylindrical tube, installed through a hole in the building’s roof, that transports daylight inside the building. This basic concept can be made to fit nearly any building and a variety of lighting needs.
Through the use of either rigid or flexible tubes, sun tunnels can be adapted to fit sloped or flat roofs, effortlessly navigating even the most cramped attic spaces.
Available in several different diameters (10″, 14″, 22″) with rigid or flexible tubes of varying length, Velux sun tunnels use a ceiling diffuser that blends into its surroundings to spread light evenly throughout a room.
Effective and Affordable Lighting Solutions
Sun tunnels are an example of stunning simplicity. This style of skylight brings in ample amounts of light, introducing an elegant touch of brightness to virtually any area. Installing a sun tunnel requires no structural changes to your home, which makes them surprisingly affordable.
Sun tunnels are quickly becoming a go-to lighting solution for homeowners, architects and interior designers alike because they can have a huge impact on the look and feel of a home.
On a sunny day, a single 10″ sun tunnel provides about the same amount of light as three 100-watt light bulbs, which is enough to fully illuminate a 200 square foot room where lighting requirements are significant, such as an office or workspace. For areas that don’t need to be as fully lit, like a laundry room, one sun tunnel could be enough for roughly 300 square feet of lighting.
This passive lighting system doesn’t need to be turned on or off, and it is absolutely free! A sun tunnel skylight will not only brighten the room but also reduce your home’s electrical demands, which saves you money.
Flexible, Discrete Design
The size of traditional skylights make them an integral architectural feature of the space they occupy, but if you want to bring more light into a space without altering its makeup, a sun tunnel is the way to go.
A sun tunnel can brighten up nearly any space, without becoming an intrusive design feature. Also, sun tunnels can fit in much smaller spaces than skylights, which makes them an easily adaptable and practical way to bring natural light (almost) anywhere you want.
Although a Velux sun tunnel looks like a luxury feature, having one installed is not a major renovation project because it does not require any structural changes to your home. Sun tunnels are easier and cheaper to install than regular skylights because they fit within existing drywall and framing, which eliminates the need for major renovations.
