A Guide To Vinyl Skylights
A definition and description of the
different types of skylights vinyl windows that can be
installed in a home.
Skylights vinyl windows are a familiar architectural
sight in most modern day homes. They are usually
situated in smaller rooms that don't have a lot of light
because of a need for privacy (such as a bedroom or
bathroom) or in larger rooms that are leant a sense of
majesty from having the sunlight pour in through a vast
gap in the roof.
The reason it is important to have skylights that are
seamed with vinyl is that they help keep cold air out
and warm air in. However this can be a drawback if you
live in a hot climate and the sun is beating down
through your skylight vinyl windows all day. In hotter
climates tinted skylight windows or ones equipped with
automatic shades are more useful so that the cost of
your air conditioning does not rocket sky high. Skylight
vinyl windows are best utilized in colder, damper
climates where insulation from the elements is needed.
The larger they are the better skylights vinyl windows
look in any room. The usual size of skylight vinyl
windows is between one and four square feet. Cubbyhole
sized ones just look tacky unless they are highlighting

buy one that has a funnel shape that is wider at the
bottom. This allows more light than normal to be
filtered into the room from the skylight and then be
spread and reflected over a larger area. Light adds

Sun Tunnels. Sun tunnels are essentially holes
that are about a foot wide that allow sunlight through
to dim areas of your home. They are installed to allow
more natural light into bathrooms, basements, attics and
Skylight Window Shades - These are skylights that
come with a lid. Sometimes it isn't always ideal to have
the sunlight brightening your room especially if you
want to take a nap or view a movie in the dark. These
types of skylights come with a remote that allows you to
adjust the amount of light in the room.
windows are so secure and water proof that the need
to frame the skylight with wood is no longer necessary.
The vinyl also prevents double paned windows from
sweating. However if you prefer the more elegant,
finished look of wood wrapped windowpanes they can be
easily fitted around skylight vinyl windows to achieve a
more traditional appearance.
