  1. I have 2 Velux skylights in my holiday home and one of them shattered last year on the inside after a spell of cold weather. Can you tell me who should I contact regarding replacements please. My home is in Finea , Co. Cavan, Ireland. The number on the frame is 66L CO4 3000ea and is in lower rt corner. I dont know the number of the second one, but it was supplied and fitted by the builder at the same time,
    Thank You
