In the past homeowners shied away from skylights and roof windows after hearing stories of leaking and damage to their roofs and interiors. Fear no longer! The design and manufacturing has been fined tuned to eliminate leaking and to ensure an energy efficient and weather proofed skylight and roof window solution.
The Window Centre in Kingston, Ontario provides only the best products for our customers. We offer you finely crafted and engineered products from Velux®, the market leader in skylight and roof window manufacturing.
Velux® skylight or roof windows and sun tunnels are easily installed and easily maintained which makes them a good solution for providing natural light or fresh air to your home while improving the air quality by allowing moisture and allergens to escape. Additional energy efficiency can be realized as skylight windows can reduce the need for air conditioning by allowing warmer interior air to flow up and out of your home.
Skylights or Roof Windows
Skylight windows are typically larger than a sun tunnel and can be optionally opened and closed to allow light and fresh air into your home. Skylight windows and sun tunnels are not usually incorporated into a house design however, as long as the slope of your roof and the framework support it, we can easily install Velux® prefabricated roof windows and sun tunnels into your home.
Velux® Roof Windows are available in a variety of styles and can be manually operated, electronically operated or even better incorporate solar power technology. Solar Powered Skylight windows offer even more energy efficiency and convenience. This type of technology combined with rain sensors will automatically close your roof windows to protect your interior from inclement weather.
