Skylight Installation and Replacement
Few things are better at opening up a room than a skylight. Essentially a window on the ceiling, a skylight allows sunlight to filter into a room, instantly making it appear brighter and larger. It can be used to accent a certain area of the room, or it can be the focal point, and be the standout of the crowd.

This window can be opened, allowing the outside in. Tilt windows are installed in conjunction with flashing kits to ensure waterproofing. This is a great option for lower ceilings that could benefit from not only sunlight but a little ventilation.

This window opens with a hinge on the side, allowing it to be “flipped open” like a door. This makes is suitable for it to be exited quickly, such as in the case of an emergency. It is best used for attics where you can peep outside and fully enjoy the nice weather.
A lesser known but really unique option is a tubular skylight, which refracts light through a tube down to the room. It’s a great option for installing a skylight where a roof is too small or a room doesn’t have direct access to sunlight. You are also able to customize a tubular skylight to refract the light in a particular place or area. With it’s minimal required space and discreet design, it can be a great daytime alternative to energy-consuming lights. Just make sure that it’s installation doesn’t interfere with any other piping in your ceiling.
