Learn how to install a tubular skylight to brighten any room; includes step-by-step instructions and helpful tips.

Solar tubes or tubular skylights are adept at beaming shafts of sunlight from your roof and flooding it into interior spaces that would otherwise be dim and gloomy during the day.  Because they’re designed to fit between existing ceiling joists and roof rafters, these tubular light funnels can be installed quickly and relatively inexpensively.  Whether you are considering doing the installation yourself or having it done, this video offers a detailed look at the entire process.   This is one of two tubular skylight projects I have done.   The second one, which was installed in an upstairs hallway feature a "switch" that allowed the light to be turned on and off.   You can view that project by clicking here.

One of the major manufactures and distributors of solar tubes is Solatube.  You can visit their website by clickilng here.
