Idaho Springs Victorian | New Venting Skylights

We want three skylights that we can open for a breeze.

The owner of this 1880’s home in Idaho Springs, CO contacted us directly with a desire to install venting skylights to enjoy a breeze in the upstairs bedroom and bathroom.

The installation:

Two 2 x 4 skylights in the bedroom.

The width of the skylights meant rafters had to be cut and headered, but other than that, the installation was quite typical for a vaulted ceiling.

Velux provides a sticky underlayment and engineered aluminum flashing to ensure decades of leakproof reliability.

Since the two skylights are within easy reach, the option to use a manual "Fresh Air" venting skylight provided a convenient and economical solution.

The manual handle makes opening the skylights a breeze!

One 2½ x 4 Skylight in the bathroom.

The installation proceeded as above with no issues.

A venting skylight is a big plus in a bathroom—sunshine to wake up by and an excellent way to ventilate unwanted moisture and odors.
