Clean, Quiet, Safe

When you purchase an operable VELUX skylight, it comes standard with dual pane, laminated glass, which is cleaner, quieter, and safer than ordinary glass.

Cleaner: The Neat® glass uses silicon dioxide to create a smooth surface for water to "sheet off" and evaporate quickly, reducing water spotting. It also uses titanium dioxide, which reacts with the sun's UV rays, causing organic materials on the glass to decompose. Then, with the next rain, the decomposed dirt will be rinsed away.

Quieter: The laminated, dual pane glass reduces unwanted outside noise, making it up to 25% quieter than a standard dual pane glass, and up to 50% quieter than a plastic skylight.

Safer: If laminated safety glass is broken, whether from a large hail stone or a stray golf ball or a fallen tree branch, the glass pieces will be held in the frame and not fall through onto the floor. This protects the people inside the home and prevents water damage, should it rain after the glass is broken.

Upgrade your old skylight today to have the benefits and peace of mind of a VELUX laminated glass skylight.

A Clean Roof is a Happy Roof

Are you experiencing leaky skylights?






With rain and wind from recent storms, leaves and other debris will tend to build up on your roof in the valleys and around flashings, creating leaf dams. 

The result? Pools of water that cause damage and leaks. 

The easiest way to keep your roof happy is 
to regularly clear away built up leaves and debris. 
A happy roof means a happy you. 


Need a hand clearing that debris? Give us a call today! (707) 527-5330

Historic Home Benefits from Natural Light

A house from the 1800's, renovated with VELUX Skylights
to be environmentally responsible and historically appropriate.


In Bethlehem, Pennsylvania this c.1802 house has been altered very little since it was built, and has never had dormers, as many did from the same time period in this part of eastern Pennsylvania. The choice to install VELUX skylights was inspired by a desire to be environmentally responsible and historically appropriate when renovating the third floor of the house into an office. The architect, Artefact, Inc., used the low profile of the VELUX GPL S06 Roof Window skylights to allow the roof of the house to remain flat and uninterrupted by projections, just as it had been for over 200 years.

During the winter the skylights encourage significant solar heat gain. Even without heat, the space never dipped below 57 degrees on the coldest nights (approximately 5 degrees F) during the winter of 2005. During the summer, solar heat gain is reduced by the solar screens on the outside of the skylights. Opening the skylights in the summer creates a chimney effect, drawing air through the house and pulling cooler air in on the lower levels.
