Hail damaged curb mount skylight.

Curb mount skylights are the most common of all skylights in the Denver metro area. Typically, acrylic domes around 2′ x 4′.

And typically energy inefficient, noisy, and susceptible to hail damage.

An Odd Skylight, But a Typical Curb Mount Replacement:

This residence in Denver’s Skyland neighborhood had an old-style and unusual skylight. Built in 1913, the skylight represented the state of the art for the period. Ugly, wire-reinforced glass. Very poor energy efficiency.  Poor sealant technology, but the best they had at the time.

And, check out the vent. This was pre-fan technology which of course let cold air right back into the room.

Replacing a typical curb mounted skylight is a simple process.

First Step:

The first step was to remove the old skylight and trim the curb to prepare it for the new skylight.

Second Step:

The second step was to attach the new VELUX custom sized skylight. And admire the new sky view!

Third Step: Peace of Mind!

  • Skylight Specialists, Inc. warrants our workmanship for five years.
  • Ten year No Leak Warranty from Velux.
  • Energy Star rated. Energy savings can pay for the skylight in a few years.

What Is a Curb Mounted* Skylight?

outside curb dimension
A curb is simply a wooden box that is built higher than the roof and flashed (sealed) to become part of the roof.

The skylight is then dropped over the curb—much like the lid of a shoe box—and attached from the outside.

*Required for roof slopes LESS than 3/12 (14°).
