The Choice is Yours!
You have several beautiful hi-tech skylight options that will enhance your home with stylish and functional natural lighting!
Which type of skylight are you interested in viewing? Both have wonderful aspects and strengths that are appropriate for some home designs more than others.
Skylight installation requires that you connect the new window, through your roof and attic with the habitable rooms that you want to light inside your home. Because the longer the distance between the roof and your targeted room the more creative you need to be. So, that means you will need to bear more costs when installing a traditional skylight.
To Get Your Best Results
You need to place it close to your roof. So you will want to place it in sections of your home that have the least distance between your ceiling sheetrock and your roof. Light does not transmit very well across sheetrock. Because the longer the channel you need to build the less light delivers. The best position for your skylight is when your roof faces the equator. And you want the ceiling sheetrock under that roof to be parallel to each other. You want your ceiling and roof to share opposite sides of your roof rafters!

Traditional skylights have been around for a very long time. Chances are that you are familiar with them. Because they mount on your roof and bring in light during the day. There are some distinct advantages between traditional and tubular systems. Unfortunately, with hail, hurricanes, blasting sunlight, and tough Texas weather, a traditional skylight can become an issue. When you are installing you need to do it right!
