Velux introduces a new deck mounted skylight

Once again Velux has redesigned their deck-mounted skylight, and this time I must say for the better! Velux’s old design sat inside the opening on the roof allowing a gap around the perimeter that permitted heat to escape (unless you insulated it, but few ever did) The escaping heat would often cause condensation from the flashing to drip into the home, causing damage. The new design is similar to a self flashing skylight as it sits on top of the decking and the lip can be sealed to the decking with ice and water seal. This is a much more air tight seal, which blocks sound and heat loss, and of course water.
