Know Everything About Skylights

Skylights, which are windows located on the roof of buildings, are most commonly used to provide daylighting and ventilation. Skylights were once a source of extra summertime solar heat and a loss of heat in winter. 

Modern skylight designs have made it possible to avoid temperature fluctuations by using sun-tracking and mirrored reflector tools. Skylights provide energy-efficient natural daylighting in your home.


Sun-tracking skylights have external mirror panels that reflect the sun. They are enclosed in a transparent plastic case. To maximize the sunlight entering your building, the panels are constantly in motion throughout the day.

Mirrored reflectors can be mounted near the skylight to maximize daylighting. They do not add heat or lose it at night.

Skylights offer more benefits than traditional light sources. Skylights can improve the space's architectural design and give it personality. Skylights can also reduce glare, which can make spaces appear larger. Take a look at these examples to get an idea of the benefits skylights can bring to your building.

There are shades and curtains available for all skylight types to block sunlight from reaching the roof. Although the sheer number of skylight options and the various "extras" can seem overwhelming at first, it will become easier to choose the right skylight for you.

Skylight companies offer a range of services including the installation of skylights in new buildings, retrofitting existing skylights, repairs to existing skylights, and removal of skylights for building demolition.
