Skylights are windows installed on the roof of a house to allow natural light and ventilation to enter the home. They can add an attractive design feature to a room and improve the overall comfort of a home. Here are some things to consider if you are thinking about installing skylights:

  1. 1. Types of skylights: There are several types of skylights, including fixed, ventilated, tubular, and dome. The type you choose will depend on your needs and the layout of your home.

  2. 2. Location: Skylights should be located in areas of the home that receive a lot of natural light and provide a good view. It's important to consider the orientation of the skylight and the direction of the sun to ensure that it doesn't cause glare or overheating.

  3. 3. Size and number: The size and number of skylights you install will depend on the size and layout of the room, as well as your aesthetic>
  4. 4. Cost: The cost of skylights will depend on the type, size, and number of skylights you choose, as well as any additional installation or framing costs. It's important to obtain quotes from several reputable installers before making a decision.

  5. 5. Benefits: Skylights can improve the natural lighting and ventilation of a room, reduce the need for artificial lighting during the day, and potentially increase the value of your property.

Overall, skylights can be an attractive and practical addition to any home. It's important to consider the type, location, size, cost, and potential benefits before installing skylights to ensure that they are a good fit for your home and your needs.
