Why Custom Skylights?

There are literally hundreds of standard skylights manufactured each year, available in over 200 different sizes and shapes, and a full rainbow of colors. Sometimes, however, a building may be so uniquely structured or designed that a standard skylight will not fit or operate properly where it is required. It is in cases like this that you need a custom skylight. Custom skylights are designed according to your needs, taste, and of course, your building’s structure. A custom skylight solution is usually the best way to lighten up a room with oddly dark corners or curves, and save money on expensive, full time electrical lighting.

Choosing to install a custom skylight eliminates all existing limits on size, function, and appearance, and they are made to provide innovative aesthetic qualities and functionality requirements. Some of the styles a custom skylight might assume include triangles, skirballs and trapezoids, sloped or inclined positioning, and covering large areas up to 90 square feet. Custom skylights can be made from practically any material, yet the most common include glass, plastic, aluminum, and wood. All custom skylights can be integrated with safety additions such as safety glass, UV protection, and penetration resistant qualities, as well as many other added functions including skylight shades and flashings.

Do It Yourself Green Roof

A green roof is a roof that is covered with vegetation. Very popular in Europe, they are an excellent and economic way to reduce energy costs, insulate during the winter, and cool during the summer. Aside from receiving special tax benefits, green roofs can save the home-owner a ton of money throughout their lifetimes, sometimes up to 50% of what they would otherwise spend on energy and insulation.
