Pembroke Remodeling: Skylight Blinds Add Function and Style

Because natural sunlight is so important to our health and well-being as well as good for the environment we have long recommended Velux Skylights and Suntunnels. CAT Exteriors has found Velux’s quality, reputation, and customer service to be of the highest standards.

Velux is also always looking for new ways to improve their products, and we are excited that for 2012 they have announced CUSTOM BLINDS. We’ve been asking for years for more choices in blinds so we were delighted to see dozens of Light Filtering and Black Out shade options.

According to Velux, “Our new blind collection can help turn an ordinary room into something special. With over 100 colors and pattern choices available, you can design your space to reflect your personality.”

We find that most South Shore homeowners usually want blinds with their skylight installation, but they were not included in the past. So Velux now offers factory installed blinds on their VSE and VCE models and as an optional upgrade to several other models.

 Standard Blinds include:

  1. Blackout Blinds which blocks 98% of the light, and is available in both solar and manual models.
  2. Light Filtering Blinds which are translucent and are available in both solar and manual models.
  3. Venetian Blinds which you can adjust but are only available for manual models.

Special Order Blinds:

In addition to the broader assortment of in-stock blinds, VELUX now offers over 75 new color/pattern choices for blinds to be ordered separately. While not pre-installed, these blinds can be ordered and shipped to us for installation.

Velux says, “The addition of blinds can increase the overall energy efficiency of your skylight by 37%. In the summer on high heat/sun days, close the blinds to reduce potential solar heat gain. In the winter, on cold nights, close your blinds to provide an extra layer of thermal insulation to keep warm air indoors.”
