Solar Innovations® skylights are available in custom wood interiors. Wood skylights pair the beauty of classic wood interiors with the durability and dependability of aluminum exteriors. Moldings and trims on the interior can be formed to match existing architectural elements on your house.
Thermal efficiency tends to be higher with a wooden skylight because wood allows for lower U-values. The lowered U-value means that the room will maintain a more even temperature and will not lose as much heat in the cold winter months. All of Solar Innovations® systems are thermally isolated which prevents the metal frame from touching the glass at any point.
Wood interiors can be composed of a solid wood or glulam interior and maintenance free aluminum exterior. Our advanced aluminum weep system carries water and condensation away from the wood, which increases the longevity of wood skylights.
Owners can stain the structure themselves if they would like or Solar Innovations® can complete the staining using a 3-5 coat microporous sealer. The first coat seals/protects the wood. The second coat stains the wood and the third coat is a finishing coat. With the addition of decorative trims and other accessories, the potential of Solar Innovations® wood systems are limitless. Solar Innovations® will prepare the wood surface for final finishing with a protective water based sealer that helps minimize damage and discoloration during delivery and installation. It is the customer’s responsibility to properly maintain the finish on the wood to preserve the warranty.
Please Note: Solar Innovations® only recommends using wood for exterior purposes if there is an overhang to provide protection or if the product will be used for interior applications. Also, Solar Innovations® does not recommend the use of wood on the exterior of doors, for durability purposes and hardware limitations.
