Skylights

Skylights are an easy way to add natural light to your interior environment. This not only saves energy, but also enhances the well-being of those who occupy the space. Open skylights were used in Ancient Roman architecture to let light in. The closed skylights became popular as the mass production of glass advanced during the Industrial Revolution. The push of LEED design and energy conservation has brought renewed interest in skylights. Larson Engineering has experience with all skylight systems.
