Skylights with standing seam roof

Guest User
A customer would like a nice Standing Seam metal roof on his barn with skylights. He now has the corrugated translucent panels that conform to the old corrugated roofing (that is coming off). Since I have only done a typical curb mounted residential double pane skylight with a standing seam roof and flashing I think the cost would be prohibitive to go that way, even on a nice barn! Is there a "flat" type skylight material that would work around a SS metal roof for utility buildings? The owner doesn't mind having the purlins (1x4's @ 2'OC) showing through, he just wants natural light in there. (Guess the horses can read better that way) Any ideas? Dick

Dick, Thanks for your question. You have a great sense of humor. I know the industry and what's available pretty well and I do not know of anything like you're mentioning. Now, you can curb mount some of the lower cost skylights -- you don't have to have a top quality skylight in order to build a curb to put it on. But, I would only use a curbed skylight with standing seam.
