Sun tunnels (also known as solar tubes, sun pipes or tubular skylights) are a simple and cost-effective way to brighten even the smallest spaces in your home with sustainable, natural daylight. We are Colorado's first choice for Velux Sun Tunnel installations and skylight replacements, earning 5-Star designation for our un-matched customer service.
Sun Tunnel Skylights
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.
VELUX Sun Tunnels
Rigid sun tunnels allow sunlight to channel down the tube from roof to ceiling, bringing light into your upper level directly. Rigid sun tunnels are the best option when you have ample clearance from your roof to attic.
Flexible sun tunnels allow smooth installation when there is a small distance, obstructions in the roof space, or other variables. Flexible sun tunnels can be installed up to a recommended length of 6m.

Sun Tunnel Skylight 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 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!
