Curb Mount Skylights

AiA Industries, Inc. specializes in building Curb Mount Skylights. 

  • Think of a curb as a shoebox, the skylight is the lid
  • Curbs can be made of wood, metal or concrete
  • 2x4 lumber on its side is the recommended minimum curb construction for our skylights
    • Some areas with higher snow falls will require taller curbs.  Check local building codes
  • All curb dimensions should be taken BEFORE the curb is flashed
  • Curbs should be fully flashed BEFORE the skylight is installed
