Skylights FAQs

What do I need to know before installing a skylight? Skylights Add Natural Light. Some Types of Skylight Can Cause Glare. Skylights Can Make a Room Appear Larger. The Right Skylight Can Save Energy. The Shape Controls the Light. The Right Skylight Material Limits Heat Gain. The Slope of the Skylight Affects Heat Gain.

How often do skylights need maintenance? Your skylights should be thoroughly cleaned once or twice per year. After this amount of time, they'll have gathered a lot of dirt, dust, and spiderwebs that you'll want to get rid of. Alongside that, your skylights should also be inspected at least once per year, regardless of whether you see any issues or not

Do I need permission to install a skylight? Even though skylights are considered to be an aesthetic improvement (rather than a structural one), there are guidelines in place that you'll need approval for from Building Regulations. If you're working with a builder or an installation team, they normally handle this process.

How many hours does it take to install a skylight? A skylight installation happens in two phases: rooftop and interior. Depending on the circumstances such as roof pitch, interior light shaft depth and shape, and weather, installations can take between half a day and three days.

Do skylights have to face the sun? There's not necessarily a best direction. Rather, consider your biggest need for light and pick accordingly. For example, for the morning sun you can consider looking east, while a skylight facing west may light up a dark room in the afternoon

Do you lose a lot of heat from a skylight? A skylight can provide your home with daylighting and ventilation. Because skylights are located on the roof, they can result in unwanted additional heat in summer and loss of heat from the inside of the hom in the winter.

Will all skylights eventually leak? Do Skylights Always Leak? No, skylights do not always leak. This is a huge misconception that homeowners have when considering adding a skylight to their home

Does adding a skylight add value? Adding skylights adds a modern touch to any home and will provide current and future owners of the property with long term benefits. Some examples: Not only will it increase the selling value, but it will also improve the overall look and feel of a particular property.
