Top reasons people decide to replace their skylights

Plastic Dome skylights are common and cheap, and are often a source of condensation and heat. They may easily deteriorate in light and become discolored over time but when price is an issue they do the trick.  The quality of a plastic skylight may vary, and the final efficiency and lifespan of it depends on the type of acrylic used. The glazing of plastic skylights is usually made with polycarbonate or acrylic materials, which make it strong. Acrylic skylights are more resistant to ultraviolet rays, but polycarbonate skylights are sturdier and have a longer lifespan.  A standard dome skylight does not meet energy efficiency standards for windows and skylights provided by the federal government.
