What to Look for in a Skylight

Purchasing a skylight can be a great decision. Installing a skylight results in a happy, healthier family, reduced heating and energy costs and can make your home more aesthetically appealing. If you have recently made the decision to purchase a skylight for your home, make sure that you are happy with your decision by taking these things into consideration.


Our bespoke pitched, and custom flat roof skylights use the latest technology to make maintaining your new skylights beautiful appearance as easy as possible. You will no longer have to consider whether or not your skylight is within easy reach via a rooftop to clean it when you are deciding on a location, and the hours of breaking your back while you attempt to make your skylight spotless and streak free will disappear. Self-cleaning skylights require no effort from you. Instead, simply sit back and enjoy the view that your new skylight offers.

Number of Joints

This factor is often overlooked by individuals that would like to purchase a skylight, but it is one of the most important factors. Skylights are constantly exposed to the elements. If your skylight has a couple of small joints, these cracks can harbor water due to rain or melted snow, resulting in mold and mildew. When shopping for skylights, pay attention to how many joints and cracks the skylight has. The more cracks and joints, the more time it will take for you to properly clean your skylight. Instead, opt for a seamless skylight free of joints and cracks.


Skylights are increasing in popularity, resulting in some companies increasing the prices. Take the time to shop around to make sure that you get an affordable, high quality skylight instead of a skylight that is overpriced and cheaply made. Our skylights offer you both affordability and are of high quality, guaranteeing that you get the best of both.

DIY option

Skylight companies may or may not offer installation. If you would like to save as much money as possible, opt for a skylight that is easy to install, like one of our customized skylights. Delivery is affordable, and easy DIY instructions make installing a skylight easier than ever, regardless of how much previous experience you have.

Skylights continue to increase in popularity for both homes and businesses, resulting in one skylight company popping up after another. While this can be good, it can also be bad for consumers. Uneducated consumers can easily wind up with a poorly made skylight that costs much more than it should. Instead of spending more money than you have to or winding up with a skylight that requires more maintenance than it should, take the time to consider these tips when purchasing a skylight for your home or business. Our friendly staff is available to answer any questions that you may have about what to look for in a skylight.
