If you are considering getting skylights on your Toronto home, you have no doubt researched the different styles available to you. One thing you may not have considered, however, is the glazing technique used on the glass. Skylights can be glazed with plastic or glass in single, double, or triple layers. The type of glazing you get on your skylights will influence their weight, cost, durability, and energy efficiency.
Plastic glazed skylights in Toronto are generally more lightweight and inexpensive than skylights with glass glazing. In fact, a plastic glazed skylight weighs approximately half of what a glass glazed skylight does. Plastic glazed skylights usually come in standard sizes and shapes, including flat, round, bubble-shaped, ridge shaped, pyramid, dormer, and barrel shaped styles. On the other hand, glass glazed skylights are usually the more popular choice, although they are heavier and a bit more expensive. Glass glazed skylights have less of a chance of being scratched, come in a wider variety of shapes and sizes and are generally considered to be more elegant. In addition, glass glazed skylights can be equipped with extra features such as argon gas fillings, bronze tint, and low-emissivity coatings.
