What Are My Skylight Choices?

In addition to brightening a dim room and adding dimension, skylights are a great addition to any home that is looking to reducing their lighting costs. Keeping reading to learn how our team at Lyons Roofing can install one of the following styles of skylights:


Fixed Skylights

If you’re looking to add more appeal to any room in your home, a fixed skylight is most likely your best option. This style of skylight offers visual appeal to out of reach spaces that need a bit more light. However, they do not offer ventilation, meaning that these skylights will not open.

Vented Skylights

If you’re looking to add extra light to your home and vent rooms that have access moisture, a vented skylight ideal. These skylights are perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, and other rooms that can quickly become humid. They’re easy to clean, come in electronic or manual operation, and are best suited for high ceilings.

Tubular Skylights

Tubular skylight fixtures can be thought of as a porthole on a ship — they’re smaller than other styles of skylights and therefore are best suited for smaller spaces such as hallways, pantries, foyers, or closets.

Skylight Installation in Pheonix

In addition to choosing which type of skylight is best for your house, you’ll also need to consider where to put it. Skylights that face north are typically the best for our hot and humid climate here in Arizona — as they offer illumination but do not absorb or release much heat. Those that face the south will take in more heat.
