Lustercraft stocks standard sizes from 16” X 16” to 48” X 96” (nominal sizes), and we can create custom sized skylights and replacement domes to any size specification.

Skylight options include a choice of dome color in clear, tinted bronze, or translucent white. Thermo break all-aluminum frames are available in bronze or mill finish.

For extra protection, let us create your skylight with a 1/4” thick outer dome that can handle the most extreme abuse.

F.A.Q.

Q: What is a “thermo-break” frame?
A: A thermo-break frame has a strip of plastic embedded inside to dampen the amount of heat or cold that is transferred through the aluminum to the inside of your home.

Q: How do I determine if one of your standard sized skylights will fit on my existing curb?
A: You need to measure the outside dimension of your existing curb and contact us with those dimensions. Please use caution while you are on the roof, and seek help if you are uncomfortable with the measuring process. Our sales staff will be able to determine what size is right for you.

Q: Are your skylights hail-proof?
A: Unfortunately, nothing is truly “hail-proof”, as we have seen hail beat the galvanization off of metal buildings in this part of the country. If your home or business is subjected to frequent hail, we suggest that you have us manufacture your skylight with a 1/4” thick outer dome. We have never replaced a 1/4” dome because it was broken by hail.

Q: My skylight leaks. Will replacing it with your product solve the problem?
A: If your existing skylight is damaged or defective, yes. However, a high percentage of skylight leaks are the result of a problem with the curb or flashing system around the skylight, not the skylight itself. In this case, our skylight would not eliminate your leak.

Q: I want to put a skylight in my home. How do I do it?
A: We highly recommend that you hire a licensed and bonded professional roofing company that has experience in the installation of skylights to help you with this project. If you are a determined do-it-yourselfer, remember that planning is the most important phase of any project. Before you cut a hole in your roof, do your homework.

There are excellent resources online for skylight installation.

Lustercraft can duplicate old or broken domes for your existing skylight. Quality material and craftmanship is our trademark. Dome sizes and construction vary from skylight to skylight. To insure a correct fit, the damaged dome must be removed from the frame for measurement.

If you have a Lustercraft grand skylight, we may have your replacement dome in stock.
