    Default tubular skylights

    My kitchen doesn't get very much natural light because the only window is under the carport. I was thinking about installing a tubular skylight since they are not too expensive and are easy to install.

    What do you think of these and have you had any expierences with them?

    John,

    Those skylight types are used quite often around here. I've personally have never found a problem with them such as leakage.

    You have to be careful in the placement of them. They do put out a intense amount of light. It is almost like a fluorescent light.

    I really like the Velux Sun Tunnel skylight the best. If you use their flashing kit and follow their instructions they will not leak.
