Let the light pour in from the sky. A skylight is a window in the roof that enables you to look up at blue sky from the comfort of your home. Skylights can bring in a tremendous amount of daylight and are a perfect way to add natural light to a dark room. At night, you can use them to enjoy the stars and catch some moonlight.
In cold climates, skylights can actually help warm a room. In warmer climates, they bring welcome ventilation to an upstairs or attic room.
It is important that a skylight is well made. Skylights get the most exposure of any window. The sun beats down on them all day and they bear the brunt of any storm that passes by. Vinyl frames hold up well, but the clear plastic part of a skylight loses clarity over time and gets scratched by the elements. A quality glass skylight will provide years of carefree star gazing.
