I would like to know how I can attach a piece of glass directly to brick. Just to put you in the picture this glass is going to serve as a skylight. Shall I attached the glass directly to the brick using sealer? Someone else suggested a method of first hammering a wooden frame to the brick and then again by using sealer I attach the glass to it.
Also, can you tell me what thickness is usually used for skylights?

Without all the details, I think you might be heading for problems with water leaks.

Post back with the details and we can better help you. Glass type depends on a few things. Type of glass depends on height from ground, location to a door and also let us know if you are intending an insulated glass unit which is thermopane. Making use of a wood frame is probably going to be your best bet and if done properly it will not leak. Post back and I can be more specific as to the set-up and installation.
