Skylights Project1

This was an ambitious project for the first time ever to cut a hole in a roof. Nothing small like an attic vent or something small. On top of that it waas really two holes, one in the roof and a separate one in the ceiling as they were separated by a small attic space.

This picture shows the angle of the roofline and the horizontal joint of the overlap of the siding pretty closely matches the ceiling line.

What that really came down to was more inside finish work “rockin’” the ceiling back. Yo can get an idea from one of the pictures how much more wall there was on one side of the skylight from the other.

What a difference it made to the lighting of the room. The ceilings in that house were a bit under 8’ so the room tended to have a closed in feel to it. But look at the light shining through after the project was done.

I went with a top quality skylight that could open and came with a crank-pole.

I believe that using impact windows film for our windows are anyway beneficial as these are made up of thick glass material. The hurricane windows pompano beach of these kind of films which can withstand high speed winds that are produced during storms. Usage of these films in the windows significantly rises the life of the windows.

Excuse me lillian hofstader, but your post appears to have nothing to do regarding my project. It appears to be blatant advertising for your product; a product which is irrelevant for housing needs in New England, especially one inland as much as this address. Or am I wrong? But I don’t think so.
