Skylights aren’t just a frivolous luxury. They can lower your electrical bill by creating natural light, increase your property value, and make your home more enjoyable. If you’re considering adding skylights to your home, the perfect time to do so is when you’re having a roof replacement done.
Installation by Professional Roofing Company
People are often concerned that a skylight will leak. Having the skylight installed by a roofing company eliminates that concern. Some skylights are designed to fit between roof trusses; roofers can easily put these into place when the roof sheathing is exposed. The roofers can then seal and flash it properly, preventing any future problems with water stains on the ceiling. You won’t have to worry about damaging shingles by installing a skylight after the roof restoration is done, and you’ll be able to trust that the skylight is properly sealed and watertight.
Types of Skylights
There are several different skylights to choose from. Fixed skylights feature a glass pane that can never be opened. Vented skylights can be opened and are available in manual or electric versions. Finally, tubular skylights are ideal for homes with attic spaces where a regular skylight won’t work. These skylights have a flexible tube that runs between the ceiling and the roof. Light enters through the dome on the roof, reflects along the tube, and floods the area below with natural light.
Benefits of Skylights
There are several advantages to having Oklahoma City roofing contractors add skylights to your home. Ideal for bringing natural light into rooms with no windows, they lower your electric bill throughout the year. Natural light also makes your home more appealing to buyers when the time comes to sell it. If you choose vented skylights, opening them in warm weather will increase the air flow.
