Tamara M Stanley added this to The Glorious Benefits of Skylights
Quality investment When consulting a professional supplier and installer, check the model you want is manufactured and tested to the relevant Australian standard in order to maximise the safety and life of the product. The Skylight Industry Association, the industry’s official body, reports that shonky traders may falsely claim to be a member of their organisation, so it’s a good idea to browse through the association’s ‘find a member’ page on the website (www.siai.com.au) to ensure you are getting a reputable registered installer of a quality product. Skylights must be selected and installed with care to prevent undue heat loss or gain, or any water leaks, in your home.

Hall halo. Skylights installed over a stairwell brighten both upstairs and downstairs areas and add architectural interest to boot.

5. Let there be lightSunlight is free, so find ways to get as much as you can into your home. You might never need to switch the lights on during the daytime again. Skylights come in all shapes and sizes, and in varying degrees of affordability. They can completely transform a space and save you money on lighting. You could also look at installing an extra window, if possible – or extending the windows – on the northern side of your home.
Rebecca Gross added this to How Skylights Have Risen Up the Architectural Ranks
StairwellsSkylights over stairs allow light to flood the stairwell. It also visually enhances the height and space of the house as the stairs are not capped or constricted by a solid roof overhead.
Adam Hobill : Design added this to Is Your Builder Giving it to You Straight?
“I will only work with my regular tradies”Clients often ask builders if they can use a particular tradesperson they know; which is often not a good idea. Good builders rely heavily on the quality and the reliability of their group of regular tradies because it is these people that execute the work for which the builder becomes known. So even though you may know a painter or electrician, don’t be surprised if the builder stands firm on their preference to use their regular tradie group. The builder has probably been through a lengthy trial and error process to recruit people that they can rely on, and who will complete their task to a high standard. If your builder does agree to use a tradie you have selected, you must accept that you are taking more responsibility for their involvement in the project, including the quality of their work and their reliability. Even a small delay in the building program can have a larger knock-on effect with scheduling and availability of tradies. Think about the position this puts you in before making that commitment.

Gable skylights such as the ones in this Sydney home by Christopher Polly Architect can be cleverly angled (north, in most southern hemisphere homes) to suit the aspect of your site. Many skylights and roof windows now use self-cleaning glass. This usually has a specially formulated external coating that reacts with ultraviolet sunlight to break down leaves and debris that fall on the glass, while rain finishes off the job and washes the panes clean.Tip: Skylights can trap heat inside homes, so increase your ventilation to counter this.
