I have an existing skylight. Can I add a blind to it?
If you have your existing product ID or serial number, we can look for the blind that might work for you. If you had Mighty Dog install your skylight, we will have that on record in our secure Customer Vault that is included with every service we perform.
I have trouble with Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.). Does installing skylights help with that?
We all get a little deprived of sunlight in those long winter months, and S.A.D. can truly become an issue. Studies show that having natural, full-spectrum sunlight entering your home can help overcome those feelings. Bringing the sun into your home while you work and relax can help with some of those overwhelming issues of lack of sunlight.
What is a roof window? Is it different from a skylight?
Our manufacturer explains it as such:
A roof window is a specific unit designed for an installation that's within reach. VELUX's roof window sash can be pivoted so you can clean the exterior pane of the glass from inside. Additionally, some larger roof window models meet building code requirements for egress (emergency escape). Often, roof windows are installed in attics that are used as living spaces. Skylights, on the other hand, are usually installed in "out-of-reach" applications”.
What if my skylight breaks, are they safe?
Part of the reason we chose VELUX was because of their safety. They offer a laminated glass product for any of their skylights installed over 8 feet. Lamination is the safety measure that prevents glass from falling should the skylight break.
What can I do to decrease heat and light coming from the skylight? Is there a DIY product I can use?
Yes there are a variety of solutions to help you control the amount of light and heat your skylight offers throughout the day. Talk to one of your Mighty Dog Roofing sales representatives to show you options. We highly recommend letting our experts handle installation, as do-it-yourself solutions VOID the 10-year warranty on your glass.

I am in a storm area that seems to get hail all the time. Can hail break my skylight?
Our manufacturer VELUX states that as they are the world leader in skylights, they stand behind their products with a hail breakage warranty. According to their literature, they have even tested them in areas with hail balls the size of baseballs shot at the glass at over 100 mph! So, it is not likely that hail would break your VELUX skylight, and having your 10 year warranty against cracks or breaks due to hail would protect you.
Why is my skylight leaking?
Sometimes condensation can form on your skylight and if it is not properly installed, it can allow moist, warm air to leak through. Adding felt and insulation between the frame and rough opening should prevent any further leaking. Ask your Mighty Dog sales representative for an inspection of your skylight.
