Steve Watson: It does the room in your house that you would like to add an extra natural light to a quick, easy and expensive way to do that is to add sun tube. To install your own sun tube you are going to need some materials and tools. First you are going to need the sun tube, then you are going to need the drill or the drill bit, you are going to need the circle cutter and a jig saw and a ladder and some safety glasses. The steps are a lot easier than you might think. First you need to decide where you want to put your sun tubes. Secondly, you mark that spot and then you use your circle cutter to make sure you cut a perfect circle then you take your drill and drill a hole so have a starting point for your jig saw. Then you cut along your circle and drop out the dry wall and push back all the installation then you use your drill and you drill the hole through the roof so then you know where to cut from the top. And we get up on top of the roof and from that center we do the same size of circle and we did down below and we cut it out with the reciprocating saw. We cut that out and then we install our sky lights from above they’re self flushing so all you have to do is you scrape some of your shingles and then slab it under then you check it in using a roofing nails and then put your shingles back on top of it and come down below and install your tubes and install your screen and then just put the ring on boom your done. Now we have a natural light and this otherwise really dark bedroom and it only took as a matter of just hour of two.
