What Should I Consider Before Skylight Installation?

Before installing a skylight, consider these important factors:

  • Quality of the Product—For the best quality, look for ventilation, energy efficiency, water tightness, sound reduction and wind resistance features before installing a skylight.
  • Skylight Placement—Skylight placement is mainly determined by the location of your rafters. Research what you want your skylight to look like and make sure its placement will be supported by the roof.
  • Safety Considerations—Bad weather can affect job completion, in addition to the slope of your roof. Remember to wear footwear with the proper traction and ensure that your ladder is durable for this type of job. If you don’t have sufficient experience, contact a professional. 
  • Drywall and Insulation—To reduce condensation, consider adding drywall and insulation around your skylight.
  • Size of the Skylight—The cost of a skylight installation will roughly be the same regardless if you choose a smaller or larger skylight. Go for a larger skylight to bring in more light.
