Whether you’re looking to add more light, create an outdoor sanctuary, or simply upgrade your home, Spanlites® are a great solution. Here are the steps you can take to incorporate Spanlites® into your home design for maximum impact.

Once you’ve determined your goals, it’s time to start planning and preparing the design ready for the installation process. Your Spanline Design Advisor can help you to make the right decisions:

  • First, consider the best choice of roof design to suit your needs and architecture. Gable, flyover, skillion or flat. What will work best for your home?
  • Next, consider where you’d like the Spanlites® skylights to be located in your home addition. Consider the location of existing windows and the direction your new outdoor area faces.
  • Finally, choose the design elements, colours, and features you want for your new outside area.

Step 3: Installation

Unlike regular clear pergola roofing sheets, Spanlites® are ingeniously designed to protect and enhance your living space by filtering UV light. Spanlites® can be placed above existing windows in your house, or they can be spaced out along the roof. We have designed the Spanlites® to offer custom solutions tailored to your specific needs.

With your Spanlites® system installed, it’s time to enjoy the benefits. You’ll appreciate the additional sunlight that provides a brighter and more spacious living environment. The sleek design of the Spanlites® skylights will also complement your home.
