Not sure this is the right forum, but couldn't find the right one.
We are planning to purchase a house in Florida. The kitchen/family room area has poor light due to a large covered patio which runs along the outside, shading the windows. Totally blocks any sunlight. These rooms are dark and would require turning the lights on all day.
Realtor suggested we check out tube skylights. We went to their showroom and they seem to offer a lot of light during the day. The rep states they are easy to install and never leak. They come in a few sizes.
Has anyone had experience with this type of skylight? Would appreciate any feedback.
