What to consider when shopping for your new skylight

There are several things you want to consider when shopping for your new skylight. Let’s cover 3 of the basics:

1. Don’t cut corners and buy cheap

We mentioned energy efficiency, water tightness and sound reduction above, but factors like load and wind resistance should be considered as well. Options like shading, UV coatings and ventilation should feature on your list of factors to take in. Several manufacturers offer high-quality, sustainable products that protect not only your home, but your planet, too.

2. Choose the right spot

Your skylight should be positioned according to your home’s rafters. It’s crucial to consult space plans and blueprints so you know where you can, and can’t, start cutting out sections of your roof.

3. Ever heard of a self-ventilating skylight?

They exist. In fact, a variety of skylight brands have a 2 in 1 option that provides room ventilation and light filtering. Depending on the room and location in your house, this could be an interesting upgrade.
