Tips for Selecting Skylights for Your Home

If you’re looking for a great way to increase natural light in your home while adding an interesting decorative element, consider installing skylights. With so many different factors to consider when shopping for skylights, choosing the right kind for your home can be tough. Here are four factors to consider when choosing skylights for your Florida home.

Plastic vs. Glass Skylights

Skylights are available with both glass and plastic panes. There are a number of different unique pros and cons of each kind. Plastic skylights are available in a wide variety of shapes and are also very durable. However, they can become hazy and cloudy over time. Glass skylights remain clear and energy-efficient, but they are also more easily damaged by debris in harsh weather.
