Types of Skylights:
When installing a skylight, first it’s important to choose the kind of skylight you want for your building. Here are a few options:
Fixed skylights are among popular skylight. As the name implies, they are fixed into the roof and cannot be opened for ventilation. A fixed skylight is a good option if you don’t have any need or desire to open the skylight.
Curb-mounted skylights are also quite common. They look and function like a fixed skylight, but instead of being flush with the roof, they are installed on a lip or curb. These are a good option because they are easier to retrofit on a house and often more effective in preventing leaks.
Ventilated Skylights serve multiple functions. Like any other window, they bring light into the room, but they also serve as a great source of ventilation, especially in areas where ventilation is useful. A good use of a ventilated skylight would be a bathroom, where good lighting and ventilation is important but where privacy is a concern.
