Let the fresh air in! Our motorized venting curb mount GSVMS model is designed to be used on a site-built curb. Curb mounted skylights consist of an insulated glass sealed between a thermally efficient, maintenance free, vinyl curb frame and an aluminum outer retainer frame. Wasco flashing (shingle and tile roofs only) is installed around the site-built curb. The skylight is then mounted onto the flashed curb and fastened into place.
SkyBlinds and other accessories are available. The GSVMS model is available in standard sizes, with a wide range of finish color options and glazings that meet Energy Star requirements in all states.

Guide to Receive Your Federal Tax Credit
Under two laws – the Emergency Stabilization Act of 2008 and American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) – Wasco Solar Powered Model GSVMS qualifies under “Solar Electric Property” expenditures when purchased and installed from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2016 (26% in 2020, 22% in 2021). This tax credit is a direct debit of the taxpayers total tax liability. The combined effect of these two laws provides a 30% Tax Credit on both the purchase and installation of qualifying products in renewable technologies such as; Solar Electric Property, Residential Solar Water Heating, Qualified small wind energy and qualified Geothermal Heat pump energy as well as others.

See fixed model GSHR. Wasco® Skylights with hurricane-resistant glazing meet IBC/IRC/FBC and other stringent state building codes for skylights installed in Wind Zone 3 coastal applications. Hurricane resistant glass appears to be ordinary glass, but shields against damage from wind-borne debris, accidental impacts, forced entry and even unwanted noise.
