Adding Skylight Windows to a Home

There is only so much wall space in your Woodland Hills, CA home and you can’t always add windows when you want more natural lighting in a certain room. But there are still options to consider. Skylights, for example, are a great way to open up your home and create some natural beauty in a space.

Places for Skylights

Skylight windows are a great addition to make rooms in a home. They work well in bathrooms, for example, where you might want natural light, but you also need privacy. They also work well in the kitchen for lighting purposes. Kitchens can be tough on windows because you need the wall space for cabinets, but the ceiling is an option when it comes to adding that natural light. Some homeowners also enjoy skylights in dark hallways, bedrooms, or even living spaces. Anywhere your ceiling leads to your roof, you can potentially add a skylight. But cutting into your home can seem nerve wracking so you might want to know the process that goes into skylight windows in Woodland Hills, CA.

Installing a Skylight

Your installers will first drill a hole where the skylight will go and frame it out. They will ensure that it is compliant to building codes so there are no worries. The skylight will then be placed and centered and attached to the roof. Next, the roofing paper will be applied around the skylight to make sure the run-off water goes the right direction. The bottom and step flashing will be installed and attached to the skylight. Finally, the solid flashing pieces will be fitted tightly around the skylight to ensure no water can enter.

    I’m in the process of building a new home. I have been thinking about installing some skylights in some of the rooms upstairs. As you said here, they work best in bathrooms and kitchens. I’ll see about talking to the builder to get that planned out.
