Skylight Installations | Natural lighting for Queensland
Skylight Installations are not as simple as they may appear. You might be thinking that installing one is similar to installing a window. There are many factors that are different, and that’s why it’s better to get someone who knows how to complete a professional roof plumbing job.
Installs can be completed in as little as 2 hours
First of all, you have to choose a shape and a size that satisfies your requirements. You have to make sure that there are no wires or trusses blocking where you are planning to put your skylight. It’s better to change a location than to make any structural changes. The shape, height and pattern of the ceiling cavity can also affect skylight installations.
Always choose a lighting system according to the shape, design and the structure of your house. There is a wide range of skylight models to choose from. Taking time when making your decision will give you a better long term result. Don’t buy on an impulse just because a certain brand is much cheaper than the rest. Always compare quality versus price of several brands. This is specially true if you don’t know how to install the product yourself.
If you have never performed skylight installations before, its best to use the services of a professional installer. We realise these are small works and do not require development signs erected, but is can be more difficult than anticipated. The process can become complex and you might end up doing more damage than good. There is a good reason why people who know how to install properly charge for their services.

A Few Questions Answered
Installs do not take long
On average our installs take 2 hours to complete. Your room is soon transformed and you are enjoying the benefits of free natural light. 2 hour installs generally apply to sizes ranging from 300mm to 500mm. Larger skylight installations can take up to 4 hours to complete. These sizes include the square and rectangular range of 600mm square through to 1200mm rectangular.
They are not expensive
One of the cheapest and most efficient ways to light up a dull room is by installing a natural lighting system. Our 300mm tubular range is perfect for lighting up bathrooms, en-suites, walk-in robes and hallways. They have been specifically designed with simply installation in mind so they can be placed in almost any location you desire. Starting from just $394.00 it’s not only a beautiful feature for your home but also a real energy saver.
They are energy efficient
Roof windows will provide homes or offices with natural day light. An energy efficient lighting system can help minimize your cooling and lighting costs.
Thermal energy is lost to the outside through the glazing at night. Further heat is lost through the shaft walls to the roof cavity. During the day heated air becomes trapped in the shaft, and there is almost no downward heat transfer. The glazing at ceiling level not only diffuses the light throughout the room, but is also part of the process that keeps it cool. The longer the shaft , the less heat gained and transmitted. All installs should have adequate top glazing to cater for all shaft lengths and roof cavity sizes.
Have you ever thought of putting one in your walk-in pantry? 300mm skylight installations will ensure you can see that item at the very back of the shelf. It’s the eco-friendly answer to a light bright pantry. With this install you no longer have to worry about turning the light on during the day.
Dark walk-in robe?
With 300mm skylight installations the problem is solved. In less than 2 hours it can be installed and your walk-in robe is transformed into a bright and cheery space. UV stabilised glazing ensures that nothing is damaged from the natural light source.
Dark ensuite or Bathroom?
Does your make-up often look a different colour under the artificial light in your bathroom? By utilising skylight installations in your home you will “see” with no more surprises. The high impact acrylic dome on your roof captures the sunlight. Then a highly reflective flexi-tube or polished mirrored shaft carries the natural light into your room/s. A ventilation options will also assist in removing the steam and prevent any mould from building up in your wet areas.
Dark Hallway or Kitchen?
Our skylight installations are a brilliant option for a dark hall way. The moment you enter your home it is welcoming you with a bright cheery feel. No tripping or fumbling for the light switch. Just a well illuminated passage to all rooms in the home.
Kitchens benefit greatly, as it is where you prepare your food and also where families tend to congregate. If you have round light fittings, 400mm round skylight installations would complement the room beautifully.
