Homes with plenty of natural light are inviting and comfortable, plus they use less energy during the daytime. Skylights are a relatively simple way to add more natural light to a room, and with today’s advanced designs, they are less prone to water leaks and weather damage.
At Fowler Homes, we feature quality skylights from leading manufacturers like Velux and Wasco, and we offer professional skylight installation in Canton and the surrounding areas. With more than 20 years of roofing and construction experience, we can provide a quality, leak-free installation that will stand the test of time.
Common Types of Skylights
Skylights are available in several varieties, from designs that are primarily used for light to those that offer light, airflow, and a great view. Here are the most common types:
- Deck-mounted skylights – Mounted directly to the roof deck, these skylights must be flashed properly to avoid leaks.
- Curb-mounted skylights – Mounted on a curb, or a framed opening that extends above the roof, these skylights are easier to seal than deck-mounted versions, but they require interior framing and drywall to create a finished installation.
- Fixed skylights – Available in both deck and curb-mounted designs, fixed skylights do not open to allow airflow, but they offer plenty of light, as well as a good view of the sky.
- Fresh air skylights – Hinged at the top, fresh air skylights can be opened for ventilation and are available in roof-mounted and deck-mounted designs.
- Roof windows – Like a fresh air skylight, roof windows can be opened for ventilation. They are more similar to a widow in function and are designed for steeper roof pitches as an alternative to dormers.
- Solar tubes – Used purely for adding light, solar tubes use a concentrator or lens on the roof to direct light through a reflective tube into the desired room. They offer more flexible installation options than skylights with less potential for leaks, plus they can be placed in areas where a skylight would not be possible.
At Fowler Homes, we have the experience to install all types of skylights, and we can recommend the best products for your home and budget.
