Curb Mounted Skylights
Curb mounted skylights are the most common skylight type. This design requires a box structure for the unit to sit on. The skylight is designed to sit over the curb like a lid on a shoe box. One of the benefits of this design is the ability to replace older skylights without having to re-flash the skylight at the same time. This can greatly reduce the amount of labor required. Another benefit is the ease to manufacture custom sizes. The downside is the higher profile created by the curb and the decreased energy efficiency as most existing curbs are not insulated beyond the 1 ½” thickness of the curb itself.
Deck mounted skylights are a more recent design that lowers the profile of the unit and increases the energy efficiency by ‘hugging’ the roof. In this design, the curb is the skylight itself. Higher quality manufacturers, such as Velux, have perfected the art over the last several decades by producing integral flashing kits for various sizes and roofing types. The lower profile provides a better visual appeal, inside and out, and the increased energy efficiency provides a more comfortable living space and peace of mind. Deck mounted skylights are the choice for new construction or for installing new skylights to existing homes.
Time to time we come across situations where fitting a skylight with standard measurements is a challenge. Velux has made it easier for us installers to keep the interior of the opening the same, but fit perfectly with perfect measurements on the outside. Custom size skylight takes a few weeks for delivery but are perfect solution when it comes to saving money but not making any interior changes.
Different brands have different lifespan. A good product can last up to 30 years if installed correctly.
