At Clear-Vue Skylights, we have a vast selection of skylights and roof windows. Although skylight installation requires more skill than your average residential window replacement; the experts at Clear-Vue Skylights here in Orlando have you covered.
For several years, Velux has been a worldwide leader in manufacturing skylights and roof windows. Velux continuously strives to provide the most energy efficient and reliable day lighting products on the market. For these reasons, Clear-Vue Skylights partners with Velux brand products to bring customers the ultimate in luxury and affordability.
When you decide on a Velux skylight, you can feel confident your home will be protected from the Florida weather conditions. Velux products are accessible to consumers, builders, and architects throughout the United States. It doesn’t matter what kind of building or roof you have. With Velux, you can have the perfect skylight for your home, without all the hassle. This is because they use modular skylights and provide prefabricated flashings for every skylight you buy. In addition, they sell a complete range of blinds, electronic accessories, shades, and solar panels.
Having to decide on the right quality skylight to use in your home can be challenging. Clear-Vue Skylights provides both decks and curb mounted skylights. Curb mounted skylights are usually installed onto wooden platforms, or curb so the builder can build around the opening on your roof. Deck mounted skylight seals are nailed directly onto the roof deck to guarantee a low-profile and energy-efficient installation. A deck mounted skylight is the best for slightly steeper roof pitches, between 14 and 85 degrees. At Clear-Vue Skylights we will measure your roof pitch and decide which option will be best for you.
You also need to consider other factors like where you want the skylight to go, how big it will be, whether or not it will open, what coatings you want, and if it will be a walk-on skylight. If this seems overwhelming, don’t worry. Our experts will help you navigate all these options by explaining to you the pros and cons of everything and make sure you are making an informed decision for your new skylight. The location and size are two of the most difficult decisions because there are so many options, but our experts can easily help you with this. You don’t want to go too large or too small, but you really need to choose a spot where you will gain from the skylight, rather than it just being another part of your home.
Walk-on models allow commercial businesses or other buildings that have heavy traffic to include skylights in their paths. This will prevent them from breaking when being stepped on and will prevent serious injury. If you don’t plan on walking on your roof, you really don’t need a walk- on model. Choosing between an opening skylight, or a permanently closed one depends on what you want to get out of your skylight. If it is purely to let in extra natural light and gain a view, you don’t need to open your skylight. But if you want to get fresh air as well and use it as another window, you need it to open.
The last thing to choose is what kind of glazing you want on your skylight. Glazing can be a great way to increase your home’s energy efficiency and save money on your monthly energy bills. But glazing also poses an extra upfront cost. You should consider whether the savings from your energy bills will be worth paying for double or triple glazed windows.
Skylight installation is a technical job which requires strict adherence to measurement details.

Do you want to add more sunlight and fresh air into your home? Velux solar powered skylights have a solar panel that captures available sunlight to power the opening mechanism. Therefore, you will be able to open and close your skylight using your solar power with no necessary wiring. The solar panel-fueled battery operator and control system is entirely concealed. This feature is available for both curb and deck mounted installations. With Velux solar powered skylights, you will have the option to qualify for a 30% tax credit on both the skylight itself and the installation.
