Solar blind tax credit

Under the new tax credit laws, VELUX solar blinds qualify as "photovoltaic property: and are eligible for the 30% tax credit on product and installation costs. The solar blinds control the light and heat that enter your room using only the power of the sun. The blinds are operated by remote control and require no wiring and no electrician. VELUX solar blinds are available in blackout and light diffusing versions. Installation is easy with the new innovative Pick&Click! brackets that are pre-installed on most VELUX skylights.

The No Leak Skylight

The VELUX deck mounted skylight is now designated The No Leak Skylight. This next generation of VELUX skylights has been developed with three layers of protection that provide air and water barriers for a leak proof installation. For ten years from the date of installation, VELUX warrants that no water will leak through the skylight or between the skylight and the roof deck.

There are now three layers of protection to prevent leaks: (1) the pre-attached deck seal which provides a seal between the skylight frame and the roof deck; (2) adhesive underlayment for a secondary leak protection; (3) the VELUX engineered flashing for primary water protection.

All three models of VELUX deck mounted skylights, fixed, manual venting, and electric venting, are covered by the 10-year no leak product and installation warranty.
