Skylight Installation

Natural light can be brought into a room using skylights, which are windows put in the ceiling. Homeowners put them in not only to conserve energy by decreasing the total brightness of their lighting, but also because they look nice. The most common types of Skylight Installation are either frame-in-place or curb-mounted. The first iteration is held in place by L-shaped brackets and is mounted such that its surface is parallel to the ceiling. Typically, curb-mounted skylights can be seen dangling above the roof deck. Skylights are more easier to set up than conventional windows.

First Steps in Skylight Installation

Skylight installation begins with framing a preliminary aperture. A skylight framing assembly consists of three parts, and a framed curb is required for a skylight that is mounted on a curb. Headers are used to frame the opening in the roof, and a similar method is used to frame the opening in the ceiling. Light shafts are the vertical supports that run between roof and ceiling openings. It’s finished and insulated, and it can be arranged in a vertical or flared orientation.

Setting up the Skylight, in addition to Assembly of the Holes

The three-step process for installing a framed-in-place skylight consists of mounting the L-brackets on the side of the skylight, placing the skylight in the framed hole, and securing it in place. A skylight that is attached to a curb requires the construction of a curb, and once that is finished, the curb must be squared off and caulked before the skylight can be put and secured. After that, the shingles are replaced with space between them and the curb for the flashing to be set up.

Sill flashing should be installed first; this is often done by nailing the flashing into the curb and then attaching it to the roof using plastic roof cement. Then, screws are used to fasten the side flashing into place. Head flashing is finished when the base of the flashing has been pushed under the shingles, it has been set on top of the side flashing, it has been secured in place, and any temporary supports have been removed.
