Sun Tunnel Skylights
Sun Tunnels (also known as solar tubes, sun tubes, sun pipes, or tubular skylights) are a simple and cost-effective way to transform your home with sustainable, natural daylight. We are Velux Colorado's first choice for Velux Sun Tunnel installations, with free estimates, next-day installations, and 5-Star designation for un-matched customer service.
Pure DayLight With No Color Shift
A high-impact dome installed on the roof captures light and sends it through the highly reflective Sun Tunnel, bringing pure, natural daylight into your home without color distortion.
Pivoting Tunnel System
An adjustable pitch adapter allows easy tunnel installation on any roof and captures more direct light from the sun.
High Quality Natural Lighting
The VELUX connection system cuts Sun Tunnel installation time in half, while the highly reflective material delivers the highest quality daylight into the space below.
Even Light Diffusion
Choose from three different diffuser options to go with your VELUX Sun Tunnel: Frosted, Prismatic or Fresnel. All Sun Tunnel Skylights are equipped with a frosted diffuser.

Sun Tunnel Installation
VELUX Sun Tunnel installations are cheaper and easier than traditional skylight installation, making them the most cost-effective way to bring natural light into your home. Our expert installers have more than 20 years of experience in attic, roof and interior alterations.
All CHCD installers are employees — not independent contractors other dealers use. We will walk you through every phase of the Sun Tunnel installation process and treat your home with same care and attention we give to ours.
First, your installer will go into the attic to check rafter locations, take measurements, and mark off where the ceiling and roof holes will go.
Up on the roof, your installer will cut a hole and install the top collar, the upper portion of the sun tunnel, lens, and flashing. This hole will later be connected to the lower portion.
Back inside, we will install the lower portion of the sun tunnel, seal the seams, and place the diffuser and trim ring in the ceiling, finalizing your sun tunnel installation!
Sun Tunnel Installation Cost vs Skylights
14" Sun Tunnel
AS LOW AS
Skylight and Sun Tunnel installation costs vary greatly based on two factors: the cost of the materials and the cost of the labor. The biggest difference is seen in the cost of labor.
Sun Tunnel installations are very straightforward and can be completed in less than one day, using as few as two technicians.
Skylight installations are much more complex and time consuming, often calling for alterations to your roof and interior drywall. On top of that, drywall must be replaced — often times by a specialist — and a painter brought in to match the interior paint work once the install is complete. In some cases, skylight installations can take up to a week or more to complete!
When comparing the cost of material and labor for sun tunnel installations vs skylights, you may find a traditional skylight installation can cost THOUSANDS more than a sun tunnel installation!
