A few things to consider when installing a Skylight:
Don't Skimp on Quality: Energy efficiency, water tightness, sound reduction and other factors such as load and wind resistance are important considerations.
Explore additional options such as shading, UV coatings and ventilation. Also, many manufacturers offer high-quality products made from sustainable materials in an effort to protect the environment. Installing a skylight is a serious undertaking, and you want to make sure you'll be satisfied with your decision later on.
Be Careful Choosing Placement: Skylight placement is determined mainly by the placement of your home's rafters. Plan accordingly and keep a space plan or blueprint handy before you start cutting out sections of your roof.
Bad Weather Can Ruin Your Plans: Rain and bad weather can seriously hinder the project or even make it impossible to continue if moisture gets in midway through the installation process.
Determine the Slope Before You Buy Flashing: There are a vast number of flashing kits available that are specific to a particular pitch, so be sure you have the right information so you can make an educated decision.
