While some people might think flat roofs aren’t conducive to skylights, that’s not the case — in fact, flat roof skylights are perfect for stargazing and natural lighting. Flat skylights provide the best optical clarity, allowing gorgeous light to enter and illuminate a room. This is an excellent solution for flat-roofed buildings that otherwise have limited opportunities for natural lighting.
Homes and businesses with low or flat-pitched roofs can install flat roof skylights, though a minimum pitch of 0.6-in-12 is often best to account for proper water drainage. A slight curve to the design might also be used to help with water dispersal. It’s possible to have flat skylights that can open for roof access, giving them another advantage for both residential and commercial structures.

Our skylights are built with a tough aluminum frame exterior providing extra strength to the unit. Built with the customer in mind our frame includes condensation gutters around the interior perimeter and weep holes at every corner allowing your skylight to breathe and whisk away condensation. We thoroughly believe quality control starts at the ground up, with that principle in mind we meticulously inspect each unit for blemishes before it gets our stamp of approval.

Acrylic offers strengths up to 50 times stronger than glass at a fraction of the weight. If you need more impact resistance, we have rubberized acrylic, known as modified acrylic, and polycarbonate options available.
