CHCD is Colorado's first choice for Velux Sun Tunnel installations and skylight replacements, earning 5-Star designation for our un-matched customer service and installations. VELUX sun tunnels are a simple and cost-effective way to brighten even the smallest spaces in your home with sustainable, natural sunlight. 

natural daylighting

pure dayLight With No Color Shift

A high-impact dome on the roof captures light and sends it through a highly reflective tunnel, bringing pure, natural daylight into your home without color distortion.

Pivoting Tunnel System

An adjustable pitch adapter allows easy 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 VELUX Sun Tunnel Skylights are equipped with a frosted diffuser. 

VELUX Sun Tunnel Skylights

RIGID

Rigid sun tunnels allow for the light to channel down the tube from roof to ceiling to bring light into your upper level directly. These are the best option when you have ample clearance from your roof to attic. 

FLEXIBLE

Flexible tunnels permit smooth installation when there is a small distance, obstructions in the roof space, or other variables. These can be installed up to a recommended length of 6m.

Sun Tunnel Installation

VELUX Sun Tunnels are cheaper and easier to install than traditional skylights, making them the most cost-effective way to bring natural light into your home. Our installers are experts, with 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 installation process and treat your home with same care and attention we give to ours.

THE

ATTIC

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.

THE ROOFTOP

Up on the roof, your installer will cut a hole and install the top collar, the upper portion of the tunnel, lens, and flashing. This hole will later be connected to the lower portion.

THE INTERIOR

Back inside, we will install the lower portion of the tunnel, seal the tunnel seams, and place the diffuser and trim ring in the ceiling, finalizing your new sun tunnel!
