How to Install a Skylight

Skylights can be an excellent addition to your home, adding immense amounts of light and the feeling of more space. A well-placed skylight that's adequately sealed can be a welcomed feature. Here is a step-by-step guide for installing a skylight yourself!

Note: This is strictly a two-person job. The person on the roof must be on it securely. Use best safety practices to avoid falls or injuries. Have the other person inside the attic or home, ready to receive the cutout as you saw through the opening.

Repeat this step on both sides of the skylight. Then do the same on the top flange of the skylight. Cover the bottom membrane with roofing shingles, and nail them down securely.
