To be introduced as part of a totally redesigned product line, the Velux deck-mounted product family has been designated The No Leak Skylight. The deck mounted skylights feature three layers of water protection, including a new gasket that seals to the roof deck. Developed to address homeowner and contractor perceptions that skylights can leak, the new line combines a number of time and money saving installation materials and methods, with an installation warranty that can be applied "even if we don’t install the skylight," company officials note.  The product carries a 10-year installation warranty plus 20 years on glass, 10 years on skylights, and five years on blinds and controls. Other features include pre-painted frames and sash to eliminate the need for secondary high-cost trips by a painter, pre-mounted brackets for quick installation of sunscreen blinds, a lower roof profile with an updated curved architectural design, and a neutral gray color, preferred by consumers and builders to blend with most roof materials and colors.  The manufacturer has also upgraded the line with advanced low-E glass for better energy efficiency, higher visible light transmittance, and improved solar heat gain performance, it notes.
