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.

Look no further, this place is amazing, the entire process was so easy. The skylights look absolutely amazing, we are going to be looking to get 3 more ;P seriously amazing quality and just all around awesome. The guys that came to do the install were really friendly and did a great job cleaning up. We seriously could not be happier!!!

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.
