View some of the common questions asked about skylights and the products offered by Newco Solar Solutions.
Q. I have a sunroom, and it is too hot to use in the summer months – do you have anything to keep out the heat?
Q. I have a bubble skylight – can I put a film on it?
A. No – and there are 2 reasons. First, glass and film expand and contract at the same rate, however, plastic and film do not. When there are temperature changes, the expanding and contracting can form “fingers” or pockets in the film, and the only way to remove the film would be to scrape it off, which would damage the plastic. Second, you cannot put something flat on something curved, so you would not be able to install the film in one piece.
