Skylights bring daylight into your home, Everyone in Los Angeles can Benefit!

Skylight: A window, dome, or opening in the roof or ceiling, to admit natural light

By letting natural light stream in, skylights fill rooms with warmth and a feeling of spaciousness. By reducing the need for electrical lighting and controlling heat gain and loss during Winter and Summer months, they also help trim energy bills. A skylight is like a window in the roof, but its frame is designed and flashed to withstand the rigors of rainfall  that a roof receives. A skylight’s flashing works in concert with the roofing material to usher away rain.  Skylights currently being produced are virtually leak-free thanks to rugged construction and easy-to-install, integral flashings. They’re also equipped with channels that carry away condensation and companies like VELUX has spend Millions of dollars in research and development of the NO LEAK Skylight. Not forgetting one of the best reasons for a Skylights, they will give you a view to the starry night sky outisde or sunny blue sky during the day all from the comfort within your home.

What Are Flat Glass Skylights – Dome Skylights – Custom Skylights?

Flat Glass Skylights – The glass skylights we use today are by far the best skylights on the market  for performance and design.  They are Dual Glazed with Laminated Glass which is protected with a special glaze that reflects the harmul UV rays and allows healthy light with lots of Vitamin D to enter.  Within the two pieces of glass is a vacuum of gas that works to prevent the transfer of heat making the skylights extremely energy efficient.  Velux Skylights are the leaders when it comes to there Velux Deck Mounted Skylights and Velux Curb Mounted Skylights.  You can choose between Fixed, Manual Venting or Electric Venting Velux Skylights.  Sizes vary typically you want to use a standard size unless a custom size is your only option.  Call us for Sizes and Pricing or Click Here!

Dome Skylights – Are an older version of the skylight.  They were used more in homes in the 80’s and 90’s because at that time flat skylights would leak, almost 100% guaranteed.  The domed skylight doesn’t allow water to build up forming puddles on top, instead because of its bubble shape all the water will run off, resulting in dry ceilings!  Today, domes still work the same way but one thing did change,  Flat Glass Skylights don’t leak anymore and  Domed Acrylic Skylights generally do not have very good energy ratings (This has become more important to buyers within the last few years),  they allow for a much more heat gain and heat loss within an air controlled environment thus resulting in higher electric bills.  They are still good skylights and the negative effects will only be noticeable during your climates most extreme weather conditions…. like half the year, Summer and Winter.  We do not recommend installing Domed Skylights within an Air Controlled environments, with a few commercial exceptions. That said, we do have lots of clients that decide they want domed skylights and they don’t complain, ultimately it comes down to personal preference and circumstance.  Dome Skylights are built strong with high quality materials and in most cases more affordable than other skylight options.   Skylights Of LA offers the best Domed Skylights in Los Angeles, If you want a Domed Skylight we have you covered!
