REPLACing your skylights

Skylights, like many things, have an expiration date. This date can vary based on manufacturer, roof condition, product and weather elements. The average life expectancy of a skylight ranges from 20 to 30 years. In most cases, a skylight needs to be replaced within this time frame. Replacing a skylight ranges in complexity, therefore it is beneficial to consult a skylight specialist to help educate you through the process. Synergy Skylights has extensive product knowledge, and experience in construction and remodeling necessary to create a skylight replacement solution that both meets your needs and your budget.

VELUX offers a wide variety of replacement options. Skylights are available in a variety of styles, offering an energy-efficient glazing, shades/blinds, solar options, and electronic opening systems meant to improve your homes energy efficiency.

Product Offerings


Solar “Fresh Air Skylight”

The Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylight features a solar panel that captures any available daylight and uses it to recharge a highly efficient, fully concealed battery powered operator and control system. The battery powered operator is the power source that opens and closes the skylight. A rain sensor is built in to close the unit in the event that inclement weather arises while you’re away.

Manual “Fresh Air Skylight

The VELUX Manual “Fresh Air” Skylight is a simple, straightforward, and stunning as they come. Rather than using electric or solar-powered components, this skylight opens and closes by hand with a smooth turning handle for in-reach applications and a rod for out-of-reach ones. Like our other venting skylights, this one enables any home to embrace the very best of what nature has to offer: daylight and fresh air.

Fixed Skylight

The VELUX Fixed Skylight allows you to have natural light in areas of your home you’d never thought possible! Whether your space is set up as a work area, game room, man cave, or an art studio, you can add natural light and a sky view with fixed skylights.
