Things to consider when installing skylights

Skylights offer you the opportunity to add to the design features of your home in many cases. Think about the space where you need light and ventilation and consider the most visually pleasing solution. Questions may include what type of roofline you have. Is your roof flat to allow one large skylight to work well in the space, or do you have a pitched roof where a skylight on either side will feel balanced and create an attractive design feature?
