Skylights can open manually or electrically
There are now many good choices on how to open your skylight. A manually operable skylight utilizes a telescoping pole to enable a person to reach most skylights. Another good choice is the electric skylight. These days the labor to install an electric skylight is no more than a manual skylight because the transformer and motor are preinstalled. They’re available in deck mounted, curb mounted or self-flashing skylights.
