The addition of a Solar Innovations, Inc. skylight to your home can completely change the atmosphere of a room. Natural daylight can enter the space and illuminate an area. When properly positioned, daylight can span into all corners of the space and remove dark, harsh shadows. At the same time, blinds are available to adjust the amount of daylight entering the space. A skylight by Solar Innovations, Inc. can be retrofitted into your home’s roof. Repairing and replacing skylights manufactured by other companies are also services that Solar Innovations, Inc. provides. Each residential skylight can be customized to fit your home’s needs, whether it be a brand new skylight or repairing and/or retrofitting operable vents into an existing one.
All sizes, shapes, and design requirements, including Florida hurricane ratings, can typically be met. The color and finish of the skylight can also be customized to match your home’s color scheme. There are eight standard colors available and any custom color you may like. The glazing used within the skylight can also be selected for the customer’s requirements. Interior wood options are available in numerous wood species. Copper cladding, lead coated copper, and Stainless Steel cladding are available for a highly decorative look. Solar Innovations, Inc. offers the widest array of decorative options for skylights, including ridge cresting, gridwork, and finials.
Any industry available glass or polycarbonate can be utilized in your skylight. LowE glass types are recommended for residential applications since they filter light and prevent UV rays from entering the room. Reducing these rays minimizes the amount of fading to
furniture and window treatments. There are many LowE glazing choices that range from completely transparent to tinted lamination, which almost eliminates all UV penetration.
The hassle of cleaning the skylight’s glass has always been a user concern when installing a skylight in a residential home. There is new glass technology available in Solar Innovations, Inc. skylights which helps keep the glass looking clean. A specific additive is used during the manufacturing process which greatly reduces the amount of dirt and build up on the glass by filling microscopic pores with glass.
Every skylight is constructed of durable aluminum which will endure exposure to the elements. Very little maintenance is required for the skylight to last for years to come. The silicone seals on the skylights are designed so they do not rot, crack, or fail, which means our units are virtually leak-free. When properly installed, our standard glass comes with a 20 year warranty against seal failure when utilizing a Stainless Steel spacer (Solar Innovations, Inc. standard practice). If you are looking for ventilation and air flow, Solar Innovations® provides operable venting options. Retractable and operable functions are available. To see a full description of the functions, please visit our Operable Skylights and Retracting Skylights pages.
