Sky Lights fill a room with natural light and fresh air and are invariably more beautiful, spacious and uplifting to your spirits. Daylight is the essential element that transforms conventional rooms into splendid spaces that add value and quality to your home and your life. An then there's the breeze. Skylights and roof windows let you bring the best of the outdoors inside with you. Paul Bange Roofing repairs skylights as well as installs new skylights.

Available in clear, smoked, bronze or tinted options, they fit any home design. Their bubble shape allows the rain to rinse away dirt, so the sun always can shine in. Standard sizes are: 2 x 2, 2 x 4 and 4 x 4fet.
There are two basic types of skylights: flat-glass and domed. Both types can be purchased as fixed or vented. You even can add an electric motor and a rain sensor to automatically close the skylight in a downpour.
An illuminating alternative to flat installed skylights are light shafts. If your ceiling has attic space above it, a light shaft is the way to open up a room to more light from above. The obvious benefit, of course, is light. There are three types of light shafts that allow you to choose how much sunshine you get:
A straight shaft has the same dimensions as a skylight and drops vertically from the roof to the ceiling.
Flat-glass skylights have more options than their domed acrylic counterparts. For starters, you can get flat-glass skylights in tempered, laminated or wire glass; or try glass tints for heat retention or solar blockage. You also can install skylights with built-in shades or blinds that enable you to control the amount of light in the room.
Domed skylights are acrylic and shatterproof, and most are double- or triple-glazed for energy efficiency.
