What Types of Skylights Do You Install?

Shanco Companies installs a few different types of skylights from leading manufacturers, including:

  • Dome skylights
  • Pyramid skylights
  • Custom-fabricated skylights
  • VELUX skylights
  • VELUX SUN TUNNEL™ skylights
  • Wasco skylights

Types of Skylights

Dome Skylight Installation

Dome skylights are exactly what they sound like! The glass rounds up into a domed shape past the surface of the roof. Many manufacturers produce and design dome skylights, and if you live in Maryland, Washington, DC, or Northern Virginia, Shanco can install them for you!

Pyramid Skylight Installation

Pyramid skylights extend out from the roof in a simple four-triangle pyramid – these types of skylights are more commonly found on commercial buildings with flat roofs, not homes.
Skylights are also available in many other styles and shapes as well – round, trapezoid, polygon, barrel vault, etc. Shanco can also install custom-fabricated skylights!

Skylight Manufacturers

VELUX Skylight Installation

VELUX is recognized as designing and producing some of the most beautiful, energy-efficient skylights available. Their skylights and complimentary accessories (solar blinds, insect screens, controls, etc.) accommodate a wide range of needs and stylistic preferences.

SUN TUNNEL™ Skylights

The VELUX SUN TUNNEL™ skylight is one of the most innovative on the market! It provides more natural light and can make any space significantly brighter! SUN TUNNEL™ skylights:

  • Have a reflective rigid tunnel that provides the best natural light
  • Feature a low-profile flashing that blends well with any roofline
  • Have sleek, low-profile glass
  • Offer superior leak proofing

Wasco Skylight Installation

Wasco Skylights provides both glass and high-quality plastic skylights in a full range of design, glazing, and finishing options – dome skylights, pyramid skylights, tubular skylights, high-performance models, and more.  It doesn’t matter what your needs and personal tastes are – there is a Wasco skylight for every lifestyle, design preference, and budget!

Shanco often recommends VELUX and Wasco skylights, dome skylights, and pyramid skylights, but this doesn’t mean our services are limited to only these types of skylights. If you need skylight installation in Maryland, DC, or Northern Virginia, or if you want to learn more about the different types of skylights we can install for you, feel free to contact us!
