How do you measure a skylight? What size is my skylight?
If your replacing out a leaking skylight, we will take measurements of the existing skylight on our initial consultation. The proper way to measure an existing skylight is to take measurements from the outside of the existing curb. This includes any flashing or roofing material that has been applied to the surface of the curb. The measurements are always listed as width (horizontally across the roof) x height (vertically up the roof).
Standard Skylight Sizes
Skylights can come in all shapes and sizes, but standard sized skylights typically are either available in stock or carry a 7-10 day lead time. Standard sized skylight sizes:
2' x 2' 2' x 3' 2' 6" x 2' 6"
2'6" x 4' 4' x 4' 4' x 8'
Custom Sizes & Large Custom Skylights
Many older skylights were custom made and therefor do not fall into a standard size threshold. The good news is we can have any skylight made custom to match the dimensions of your existing skylight! The lead time for a non-standard sized skylight is typically somewhere between 2-4 weeks, but can go up to 8 weeks for some special custom-designed skylights. Inland Empire Skylights provides large custom skylights, like hip ridge skylights, lean-to's, pyramids, and large flat glass skylights to homes all across the Inland Empire.
