Retrofit a skylight into existing roof

last month

We are in desperate need of light in our main room. Due to a porch on the front and a sunroom in the back, all the windows are covered. A skylight would solve all our woes. But they have such a stigma for being a leaky nightmare. I have heard it's not a problem if you are replacing the roof, but our roof is only 5 years old. Is it possible to have one installed into an existing roof and not have issues? If so, has anyone have experience with Velux "no leak skylight" actually being superior?
