Skylights brighten up dark rooms. Even small units make a big difference in the way rooms look and feel. Skylight Specials manufactures the best quality skylights available. Stay away from inexpensive units with plastic glazing. Although they are cheaper initially, the bottom line is they don't last and many of them leak. The better choice is a high-quality curbed skylight with energy-efficient glazing—and the factory flashing kit made for it.
Skylights come as venting units, which open, or as fixed units, which don't. A venting unit might seem like a good idea, but it is inconvenient to open and close when it's out of reach. In fact, many customers who order them later tell me they rarely bother to track down the special rod needed to operate their windows. So unless the skylight will be easily accessible, buy the fixed unit and save yourself some money. This even applies to putting a skylight in a bathroom. But it's essential to make sure the room has adequate ventilation so condensation doesn't become a problem. A vent fan for a small bathroom should provide 1 cubic foot per minute of air circulation per square foot of floor area, or about eight air changes per hour. For more on sizing a vent fan, go to the Web site of the Home Ventilating Institute.
