Skylights, Sunrooms, and Sun Tunnels

Adding more natural light can make your home feel larger and provide free, energy-efficient lighting to just about any room in your house.

Bring the outdoors in and enjoy the FREEDOM on natural light

Almar specializes in VELUX products and has achieved Velux’s high standard as an independent installer of their product. We can help you with all your skylight, sun tunnel, roof window, and sunroom needs.

VELUX Sun Tunnel Skylights give you FREE LIGHTING all day. Sun Tunnels admit passive light from the sun without the normal heat emitted by electrical light sources. Sun tunnels can illuminate dark spaces like hallways, bathrooms, and closets without electricity. Light kits are also available so your sun tunnel can do double duty as a light when the sun is not out.

Skylight FAQs

Roof windows are suitable in situations where the window is situated within easy reach, as to open them, one grasps the window itself and hinges it outward. They are available with top hinges, center pivots, and side hinges. When side hinges are employed, roof windows provide access to the roof for maintenance and/or emergency egress. Velux roof windows also have a ventilation flap that can be opened while the window is closed to provide fresh air without letting in water or compromising security.

Skylights are probably a more familiar option available in many sizes and styles, including fixed, manual open, wired electric, and solar electric.

I've had two jobs completed by Almar, and both were done at a very high quality. The first was a makeover of the bathroom upstairs which had previously been a DIY tile project by the previous owner, which did not go well. The second job was the repair and restoration of a significant leak that we had in our porch into our basement. I would hire them again; they are wonderful to do business with.
