Installing a skylight in your existing roof is a great way to bring in more light and enhance the design. It can also potentially save energy. Which is the best type of skylight for your roof?
The right skylight will suit your space and design, fit where you need it to go, and be the right aesthetic for your space.
Here are some of the most popular options in skylights, whether you’re looking to install the skylight in an existing roof, an industrial roof, or a low-slope roof.
Fixed Mount Skylights
These skylights are the most popular type of skylight because they are relatively easy to install in existing roofs. They do not open and are sealed into the roof, letting a great amount of light into any room.
These skylights are good choices for bathrooms and kitchens or anywhere that moisture tends to build up. Not only do they provide regular air flow, but they can also bring more light into small spaces.
For small roofs or where the roof is incapable of supporting a larger skylight, tubular skylights are often a perfect fit. They include both interior and exterior fixtures with reflective tubes. In some cases, they can include lights for use on overcast days.
For large spaces, oddly shaped spaces, and specialty designs that completely open up a space, customized skylights may be an option. They are especially appropriate for unique industrial roofs where a great deal of light is needed and an entire section of the roof may be appropriated for skylights.
