FAQs

Several signs indicate that your skylight may need repair or replacement:

  • Leaks: Water stains, drips, or moisture around the skylight are clear indicators of leaks.
  • Cracks or Damage: Visible cracks or breaks in the glass or acrylic can compromise the skylight’s integrity and efficiency.
  • Condensation: Persistent condensation inside the skylight suggests poor insulation or ventilation issues.
  • Drafts: If you feel drafts around the skylight, the seal may be compromised, necessitating repair or replacement.
  • Age: Skylights over 15-20 years old may benefit from replacement due to advancements in energy efficiency and materials.
  1. Fixed Skylights: Non-operable skylights that provide natural light but do not offer ventilation. Ideal for areas where additional light is needed without the need for airflow.
  2. Ventilated Skylights: Operable skylights that can be opened to provide both natural light and ventilation. Perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas where moisture and odors need to be managed.
  3. Tubular Skylights: Compact skylights designed for small spaces, such as hallways and closets, where traditional skylights might not fit.
  4. Custom Skylights: Tailored to fit unique architectural designs or specific homeowner needs.

Before installing a skylight, consider the following factors:

  • Location: Choose a location that maximizes natural light without causing excessive glare or heat gain. Consider the direction the skylight will face; south-facing skylights provide the most light but can also lead to overheating, while north-facing skylights offer more diffuse, consistent light.
  • Size: Ensure the skylight is appropriately sized for the room. Larger skylights provide more light but can also increase heat loss or gain.
  • Roof Structure: Ensure your roof can support the skylight installation without compromising its structural integrity. Some roof types may require additional reinforcement.
  • Type of Skylight: Decide whether you need a fixed skylight for light only or a ventilated skylight for both light and air circulation. Tubular skylights are an option for smaller spaces.
  • Energy Efficiency: Look for skylights with low-E coatings and multiple glazing layers to improve insulation and energy efficiency.
  • Professional Installation: Hire a professional to ensure proper installation, sealing, and flashing to prevent leaks and ensure the skylight’s longevity.
