Fakro fixed skylights are a great way to brighten up almost any room in your home. This ENERGY STAR deck mounted skylight features bracket-free, one-person installation that is suitable for roof pitches between 15 to 85 degrees. A perimeter seal lines the solid wooden frame providing a "warmer" roof boarding-skylight frame joint. Once in the rough opening 4 to 6 screws (included) secure the skylight to the roof deck followed by your trusted brand of water and ice shield (required and sold separately) and finished with Fakro step or high profile flashing (required and sold separately). The single chamber glass panes are filled with argon gas and feature a Low-E coating to help filter UV rays. The finished pinewood interior is pressure-treated and double coated with a clear acrylic lacquer. A template and installation hardware are included. Blinds and other Fakro accessories are available.

Customer Reviews24-inch x 27-inch Fakro FX Fixed Skylight - ENERGY STAR® is rated out of 5 by 2.Rated 4 out of 5 by Matt from 4 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaserDate published: 2017-12-06Rated 4 out of 5 by KGB3 from So far, so good... We had the professionals install 2 of these skylights last month (April 2014) when they were putting on our new roof, so we cannot speak as to the ease of installation, but we can say that they look fine, and have withstood a few strong storms intact and with no leaks. We are looking forward to seeing how the summer goes, but think these will cut down on the heat and hot spots because they have the low-e glass and our old ones did not. There are two things I would change: to have white trim around the interior, rather than the beige almond color that it comes with and to have pan flashing which our contractor strongly suggested instead of the separate flashing kit (all one piece to guard against leaks, plus easier to install, plus lower cost). That being said, they are good skylights and we wouldn't want to be without them as they really brighten up the house and are good for a happy mood because they let nice natural light in.Date published: 2014-05-03
