Episode recap

New Velux skylights don’t leak

Skylights bring in more daylight than vertical windows

Ve= Ventilation, Lux= light, hence the company name VELUX

Integrated blinds can be programmed

You still need to air out your space even if you have air conditioning

Modern skylights have UV blocking glass

Learning from mistakes of others- use the right skylight for the right application. A deck mounted skylight is for a pitched roof. A curb mounted skylight is for a flat roof. 

Don’t put a brand new roof around an old skylight, they are part of the same roofing system.
