their home, you should talk to them about it. Ask your friends, people
you work with, members of your family or even people who live on your
street. You should be trying to find out the age of the skylight, where
the person purchased it and how much it cost. Was it made with Velux windows, or a different manufacturer? Finally, ask the person if they
would recommend that you install the same type of skylight in your home.

You should go around your community and visit all of the stores that
specialize in skylight installation. Take a look at the displays and see
if you like the way they look. Can you picture having one of these
skylights in your home for many years to come? If you see one that you
like, get some information on the installation costs. Does the store do
the installation, or will you need to hire a contractor?
