Skylights come in variety of styles, dimensions, and many options to select from. Popular skylights such as tunnel skylights, or sun tunnels, are cylindrical tubes primarily used to lighten up a hallway or stairwell. Many applications also find their way to brighten up kitchens and bathrooms that are in need of more natural light. The installation is generally easy and straightforward without too many roof modifications since most of these skylights can fit right between any standard roof truss lay out which in most applications is about 24” on center.
Certain skylight remodels can be very challenging and in all likely like hood would require the help of an expert builder to execute such a remodel. This is especially true if you’re planning to add let’s say, a series of skylights in a kitchen or dining area. This would involve a roof modification where structural changes will need to be done and in some cases an engineer will more than likely have to re-evaluate the integrity of the roof structure to make sure all supports are correctly installed.
Its best to always get advice if your planning a skylight project.
From the beginning many home innovations such as skylights have gradually advanced and have become better and better with time.
Who would have thought that you can cut a hole in a roof to bring in the sunlight? Many would have said “well how do you keep the rain and snow out”… “They always leak”… these statements did carry merit along the way, and if you happen to be a victim of bad skylight installation then you would be one of those individuals who felt the frustration, pain and the cost of having to fix it.
