How Stuff Works Explains Skylights

Skylights are a useful home improvement for nearly any home. They can add a lot of light as well as make a dramatic visual statement. But there is far more involved with installing a skylight than simply cutting a hole in the roof and inserting a window material.

Skylights come in a number of shapes, designs and types and can be made from a variety of materials. The placement of your skylight is also important if you want to maximize the amount of light your room will get as well as prevent the skylight from acting as a heat-source in the summertime. Installation and safety standards are also very important as a broken skylight or an installation error can lead to injuries to the occupants of the home as well as the need for expensive home repairs.
