Curb mounted skylight:
Skylights sits on a framed opening in the roof known as curb mounted skylight. The frame is fastened with the roof sheathing permanently then flashed with thin pieces of improvised material to prevent water from leaking around the openings. Usually the curb is installed before mounting the curb mounted skylight. The curb mounted skylight is hold up higher than the roof by the curb. The height of the curb is selected according to the pitch of the roof. The steeper the roof will be, the higher the curb should be. With a 5 degree or less pitch to the roof the height of the curb will be 3 inches as per recommended. If the pitch is more than 5 degree the curb will be 6 inches which is recommended. When choosing the best skylights for a flat roof, consider their size, style, and material.
The sun tunnel:
A sun tunnel sends the sunlight from the roof of your house down to a highly reflective tube and comes into the room below. By installing a sun tunnel the dark areas of the house gets brighter. The sun tunnel works best when it’s installed directly from the roof to the room underneath. Flexible sun tunnel works as the same principal but the light is slightly lower. The reflective tunnel ensures a good flow of sunlight directly to the room where it’s needed. The life span of acrylic dome is almost ten years and for the solid tubing is like 20 years. The rigid tubing should last forever. A sun tunnel produces less heat than electric light. Its maintenance free and don’t require ant cleaning.
