Is It Time To Update Your Skylights?

Many homes built in the 1970’s and 1980’s that had skylights put in typically used plastic dome skylights. It is likely time for a plastic dome skylight replacement if you have one of these older model skylights. Something to consider when looking into a plastic dome skylight replacement is the alternative of using a deck mounted skylight! A deck mounted skylight offers greater long-term durability as it is made with heavy aluminum. You may also want to consider the energy efficiency offered by a deck mounted skylight. Not only do these skylights offer a clear view and are low profile, they will keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. 

A deck mounted skylight is extremely easy to install and can even be a great DIY project for the homeowner that prefers to do things themselves! As always, SIG Skylights offers custom sizes and shapes to make sure we fit your space perfectly. While we do stock a select number of standard sizes that are likely to fit most homes we are happy to offer custom sizes for all of our skylight options. Things to keep in mind are that plastic dome skylights tend to show discoloration over time. This discoloration can give them a cheaper look and feel. Dome skylights also tend to look less modern and can date the home. You will always want to weigh the cost benefit of the energy efficiency abilities offered by deck mounted skylights.
