When to Schedule an Appointment for a VELUX Virtual Consultation


Recently, we introduced free consultations with VELUX experts for homeowners. Lasting roughly 30 minutes, these consultations are 100% virtual and help homeowners learn more about skylight installation and ownership.


But if you've never owned skylights before, how do you know when you're ready for the virtual consultation phase of adding them to your home?


When to Set Up Your Consultation

When you schedule a virtual consultation, you're signing up for time with one of our expert skylight design consultants. But don't let that word "design" throw you off. You can sign up for a virtual consultation at any point in your skylight journey. Whether you're just starting out and need help deciding where skylights would fit best, or you've scheduled your installation and have last-minute questions, a virtual consultation is the best way to get your skylight questions answered.


Skylight design consultants can help with and answer your questions about:

  • Installing new skylights
    • The design phase
    • The installation phase
    • Which room?
    • How many?
    • Which skylight would be the perfect match?
    • Can I even install skylights?
  • Replacing existing skylights
    • The benefits of going from plastic to glass skylights
    • New skylight technologies
    • Coinciding your skylight and roof warranties
  • Skylight blinds
    • The benefits of solar pre-installed blinds
    • Which color would look best?
    • How much light control do I need?
  • Skylight technologies
    • Smart home automation
    • Venting (opening) capabilities
    • Different control options
    • Skylight energy efficiency

Basically, your virtual consultation is your time to ask the questions you currently have about installing skylights. There is no obligation to buy skylights or schedule an installation during or after a consultation, although a consultant could certainly help you with that as well.


With virtual consultations, we aim to give homeowners another way to learn about skylights and the skylight installation process. If you have any questions or even need help starting your skylight journey, book a virtual consultation today.


We look forward to chatting with you!
