Delightful Modern Skylights
Modern skylights are a delightful roofing design that allows a bit of the blue sky inside the home during the day and a display of the majestic beauty of the stars and moon at night. The materials of modern skylights are lightweight so they don’t add to the structural load carried on the roof. Acrylic plastics are a popular choice for modern skylight materials. Polycarbonate plastics, another option, are 200 times stronger than glass, which makes them a durable choice. Plastic skylights shaped into a dome are structurally stronger than flat skylights, which is why many newer skylights have a domed shape. Domed skylights also are able to expand and contract more easily with weather changes than a flat shape.
