Allowing sunlight into your home can transform traditional rooms into cozy spaces. It also adds value and quality to your home! Nothing brightens your home more than innovative openings created by VELUX skylights!

Mares & Dow Construction & Skylights uses VELUX skylights because they are energy-star rated. The glass has a slight tint and comes in numerous sizes with accessories to meet your needs.

Why You Need VELUX Skylights in Your Home

Skylights add plenty of natural lighting to your home. Skylights also enhance indoor air quality and encourage better ventilation. The transformative impact of a skylight can improve your home’s aesthetic appeal, reduce energy costs, and improve your mood.  


VELUX minimize unwanted noise by approximately 25% compared to standard double-pane glass. Additionally, they feature a unique glass coating that keeps the window cleaner longer, making connecting with the outdoors easier.  


By adding a skylight, you can explore the limitless possibilities and realize the full potential of your home. You can say goodbye to dimly lit rooms and hello to a brighter, uplifting atmosphere.

Working With a Certified VELUX Skylight Installer

When a skylight is not properly installed, it can produce improper airflow, create condensation, and allow pests to enter your home. Working with a certified installer ensures you have the highest-quality skylight. 


At Mares & Dow Construction & Skylights, our team has completed specialized training and certification programs supplied by VELUX. This training equips our technicians with in-depth product knowledge, installation requirements, and maintenance practices.


A certified installer gives you peace of mind, knowing the project will be completed to the highest standards. They must follow strict guidelines to install the product correctly and prevent potential issues.    


VELUX skylights have warranty coverage but, typically, must be professionally installed by certified installers. You can access these warranty benefits when you choose a certified installer like Mares & Dow Construction & Skylights.
