Hail Damaged Skylights

Hail Damaged Skylights Warranty

Spring thunderstorms are on their way and that means hail.  Plastic dome skylights and older glass skylights are prone to breakage by hail.  Hail damaged skylights can cause severe water damage to the interior of your home.  Velux has just announced their Clean Quiet, and Safe glass skylights with a new hail breakage warranty. These skylights are safety laminated LoE-3 and Energy Star rated.

The Clean, Quiet and Safe glass features Neat® glass coating to keep your skylights cleaner, longer, leaving the skylights virtually spotless.  They also reduce outside noise, such as rain, by up to 25% less than standard double pane glass and up to 50% less then plastic skylights.  We also recommend and building codes require laminated glass for out of reach applications.  Silicon dioxide makes the Neat® glass exceptionally smooth so water disperses evenly, “sheets off” and evaporates quickly, greatly reducing water spotting.  Titanium dioxide chemically reacts with UV rays causing organic materials that are on the glass to decompose.  Then when it rains, the dirt washes away, leaving the glass almost spotless.

The 10 Year Hail Breakage Limited Warranty is for Velux skylights with Clean, Quiet and Safe glass only.  For a period of ten (10) years from the purchase date after January 1, 2014, Velux warrants to the end-user that the Velux Skylights with Clean, Quiet and Safe glass only will not crack or break because of hail.  Verification and limitations do apply please see the full warranty details at Veluxusa.com.  Don’t let hail damaged skylights ruin the interior of your home.  Make sure your installer or supplier is providing you with this product to protect the interior of your home in the event of a hail storm.  It is the only Velux glass we use in our skylights at Premier Skylights, LLC.
