Answers To Some Frequently Asked Skylight Questions
Many reasons; they are personal and individual to your situation. A skylight will certainly increase the light in your home – during the day and even during the night! You can see the sky, which can be very calming and beautiful. Skylights add architectural interest and beauty to a home. (Take a look at our Photos section). They can provide ventilation. If fresh air is desired, an operable skylight with an installed screen is available.
Sure, if you are a do‐it‐yourself‐er. Our self-flashing, deck mount skylights are relatively simple to install. Besides standard roofing tools and materials, there is nothing else to buy to install one – no complicated flashing kit is necessary. Review the installation instructions to get an idea how easy it is.
We are a manufacturer; we do not install them ourselves. However, just contact us through phone or email (see our Contact page) and we can suggest someone who can install them for you.
That is an easy one! Glass is clear and will always be. Our skylights have energy‐efficient double walled insulated glass which will keep more heat and air conditioning inside your home. All plastic degrades with UV from the sun, causing hazy skylights with even lower visibility as they age. And speaking of aging, plastic gets brittle and can crack and scratch much more easily than glass. Our skylights are made of strong, safe, tempered glass with a slight tint to reduce solar heat gain and UV damage and maintain beautiful visibility.
