Skylights can drastically change the character of a room by adding brightness and a sense of spaciousness. Skylights can introduce beautiful sunbeams throughout a dim kitchen, brighten a dark bathroom and even capture a view from an attic room.
Let’s talk about cost savings. A skylight can save you money by reducing the need to have lights on, it can deliver warmth in the winter and cooling in the summer, minimizing the need for fuel-based heating and air conditioning. Choosing the right materials and features as well as placement of the skylight is important to optimize where it can do the best job.
What are skylights good for?
Skylights can transform the feel of a space by providing light, openness, and sometimes beauty. A skylight can make a kitchen seem more inviting, make a small bathroom look bigger and make a spare bedroom less desolate.
Which direction should skylights face?
In the morning, skylights on east-facing roofs gain most of their light and heat from the sun. Those with west-facing skylights receive afternoon sunlight and gain more heat in the summer.
How many skylights should I install?
If you have several other windows in your home, skylights should not take up more than 5% of the floor area. Adding more than this will make the room too bright and likely too hot on sunny days.
Can you install a skylight yourself?
If you want to install a skylight, you should know that you will be dealing with heights and piercing your roof. A high level of competency is required to ensure that any future problems are avoided, so we suggest employing an expert.
Can skylights be installed on a metal roof?
Skylights on a metal roof are an option that many homeowners wonder if they can combine. Among their many benefits (energy-efficient, cascading light and fresh air), skylights are compatible with many roofing materials including metal.
