Residential Skylights

Maxim Skylights specializes in the manufacture of Hurricane, Impact, and Storm resistant skylights that comply with ALL wind zones and impact protocols from the Carolinas to Florida to the Texas Gulf Coast!

Maxim manufactures Residential skylights for pitched or flat roofs of any kind.

Whether shingles, roof tiles of any size or membranes for flat roofs, Maxim Skylights offers two options:

  • a Curb Mount skylight, for applications where there are existing flashed curbs
  • a Self-Flashing skylight (often referred to as “deck mount” since self-flashing skylights are installed directly on the roof deck of your home.)

With impact resistant polycarbonate domes to hurricane resistant insulated glass, Maxim has an option for your home.

Only Impact Resistant Glazings are available.

With options of polycarbonate domes and pyramid domes, 100% impact modified acrylic domes and pyramid domes, single polycarbonate dome over 16mm 5 Layer or 25mm 7 Layer cellular multi-wall polycarbonate panel, or impact resistant insulated glass with SentryGlas® are available to insure glazing options for every type project.

  • clear
  • standard translucent white (27%vlt)
  • high light transmission translucent white (74%vlt)
  • dark bronze (25%vlt)

Frame finishes in mill (as the aluminum comes from the mill), clear anodized, dark bronze anodized or choose from an unlimited palette of UV enhanced powdercoat colors that make it possible to match any metal roof project or just in case you would like to add a little “color” to your skylights. Our multi step cleaning process ensures that the aluminum is perfectly cleaned prior to powdercoating and complies with the extreme salt water spray test of ASTM 2605. More about Frame Finish Options
