There is a wide variety of Texas skylights and roof windows to choose from at Post Oak Roofing through Velux USA. For those homeowners aware of health, the solar-powered fresh-air skylight is a popular choice. The electric version of the fresh air skylight is also an option: the only additional cost would be to connect the energy. Are you on a tight budget but still like additional light and fresh air? Consider a manual fresh air skylight.
If you prefer more light, you can call us to install a fixed mount skylight, which is even more affordable than the manual option.
The best choice is a solar fresh air skylight that is simple to open and utilize. The solar power fresh air skylight captures sunshine and uses it to recharge the battery.

Frequently, homeowners ask us the question, “How do I know which skylight or roof window is ideal for my home?” By performing a roof inspection with Post Oak Roofing, one of our Three Star Specialists will tell you whether you require a curb-mount or deck-mount skylight installation.
If the roof of your property has three pitches or less and a low slope, you will need a curb-mounted skylight to let in light.
On the other hand, the deck-mounted skylight is the most common type of skylight for other types of roofs.
If your roof has a low slope, a curb mount skylight is necessary for water diversion purposes.
On a roof with a low slope, water will accumulate on the skylight’s upper end, which might lead to a leak in the future. To make the skylight waterproof, the deck mount raises the skylight above the deck surface.
Deck mount skylights are ideal for sloping roofs because of their low profile and clean appearance on steeper sloped roofs. Water flows rapidly on steep slope roofs. The deck mount Velux skylights are waterproof and come with a ten-year warranty for the homeowner.
It is now time to choose between solar, electric, manual, or fixed-mounted skylights. This boils down to personal preference and the amount of money you have available for your project. However, the solar-powered fresh-air skylight with blinds is perhaps the best skylight on the market today.
After the installation, all you need is a remote control to operate it. If your property has many of them, the remote control can manage them all, or you may have a separate remote for each room.
Does your home have a flat ceiling? You may think you cannot have a skylight or roof windows on it. Do not worry. You can let sunlight get into your attic. All you need is to build a lightwell in your attic.
You must hire experienced skylight replacement experts to install a Velux skylight. By doing so, you will ensure proper installation, capturing all the possible light, and avoid future leaks.
An inadequately constructed lightwell can capture up to 30% less of the available sunlight. You do not want to lose this considerable quantity.
If your room’s ceiling is flat, it does not mean you cannot get the benefits of a skylight. In this case, a curb-mounted skylight is the best option for illuminating your interior space. Hence, it is possible to direct light from a skylight or a roof window to any room in your home with VELUX skylight light shafts. Besides, using reflecting interior surfaces, the tunnel can deliver light into any region of your home, regardless of obstructions.
With the help of blinds, half of the customers would like to control the amount of light coming into their homes. People like dramatic effects, and you can add this to a room is by introducing natural light. Natural lighting has a favorable effect on how we see a room.
You can improve energy efficiency, balance, and privacy in a room by using the Velux skylights with blinds. Indeed, room darkening skylight blinds, double pleated or flat blinds may transform the day into darkness in an instant.
Do you want to take a nap? Close the room darkening blinds in the room, and it will be completely darkened out. The light filtering blinds softens and diffuses the light entering the room. Usually, places such as kitchens and living rooms require diffused light. Therefore, these spaces benefit greatly from the light filtering blind.
When it comes to controlling light, a Venetian skylight blind is an excellent choice. There are eleven factory-installed blinds from Velux, and you can choose from several colors. The blackout blinds are available in white, beige, green, gray, and charcoal. The Venetian and light filtering blinds are available in a white, classic, sand, misty brown, exquisite latte, dazzling cappuccino, and filtered white colors.
You can light up those places that usually are gloomy. For example, light is always a problem in hallways, bathrooms, and closets. The Velux sun tunnel is a great way to brighten up a dark spot of your home.
An elegant ceiling diffuser blends in and is unnoticed. When using it together with a Velux sun tunnel, they distribute a calming, peaceful light around any space.
Flexible tunnels make installation simpler but with rigid tunnels, you can get the brightest light. Your local skylight repair company, Post Oak Roofing, suggests the rigid sun tunnel because of the additional light it brings into the space.
However, because of the non-flexible pipe, you cannot use the rigid in every circumstance. Keep in mind that you will require a direct route from the roof to the room you wish to illuminate.
When a Three-Star Velux Specialist installs yours with the Velux flashing kit, you get a ten-year warranty. If you have any questions about installation services, do not hesitate to ask your Three-Star Specialist.

Conclusion: Changing Skylights at the Right Time
Replace your existing skylights as soon as you start installing a new roof. During this stage of the installation process, the roofer already removed the old roof and the deck surrounding the skylights, so it is clean. This is the most convenient and cheapest moment to install new skylights.
It is easier to apply the right quantity of ice and water protection and synthetic felt around the new skylights if you remove the old shingles first. Velux offers a 10-year no-leak warranty on flashing kits installed according to their recommendations. With the new Velux skylights, there is also a federal tax credit.
