3 Ways Skylights Are A Good Investment

Nov 04, 2019

Skylights can provide your home with more natural light and a few other benefits. If you’re trying to decide whether or not to get them, keep the following information in mind on the advantages they offer.

1. Increased Natural Light

Skylights let more natural light into your home. This can brighten up any part of your home, but it’s especially useful in darker areas. For example, if you have a hallway or other part of your home where sunlight usually doesn’t reach, adding a skylight helps keep this area well-lit during the day.

2. Reduced Energy Use

Investing in skylights can pay off in terms of lower electric bills. When you have skylights installed in your home, you can leave the lights off more often throughout the day. Skylights can add overhead light in your kitchen or living room, so you don’t have to turn on ceiling lights or lamps.

Depending on the kind of skylights you get, you might also be able to reduce your energy usage for heating. When it’s cooler out, skylights can add solar heat to your home, so you don’t have to run your furnace as much.

3. Added Ventilation

Some skylights can be opened, which helps add ventilation to your home. Added ventilation with skylights helps improve the indoor air quality in your home and keeps it feeling more comfortable temperature-wise.

If your home gets stuffy, you can open these skylights to let in fresh outdoor air. You can also keep your home feeling a bit cooler when it’s warm out by opening these skylights to let in a breeze.

Skylight Concerns

Skylights used to have a few drawbacks to consider, such as water damage from leaks, heat loss and faded fabrics. Over the years, these drawbacks have been addressed through different improvements, making skylights a good investment for your home.

Layers of water protection help reduce the risk of leaks, which is important when rainstorms hit. Glass coatings and glazing help prevent heat from escaping your home in winter. These coating and glazing options also reflect sunlight instead of absorbing it, which helps protect fabrics from becoming faded.

If you’re thinking of getting skylights for your home, contact Surf and Turf Roofing. We offer superior roofing services, including skylight installation.

Every aspect of this project was handled professionally and effectively by Surf & Turf. They communicated everything we needed to know well in advance. The project managers had everything well under control. The installers were truly amazing! This was probably one of the most challenging roofs they have replaced this year. Great care was taken to protect our home and our neighbors' properties. Surf and Turf was prepared, and cleaned up beautifully! Thank you Surf and Turf!!

Surf & turf roofing returned my call immediately. They sent a inspector out within a few days to discuss the job of having gutters installed. They started our job the following Monday as promised. They did a beautiful job of putting up seamless gutters. I like where they installed all the downspouts and the fact that they were secured properly. I am extremely pleased with the job they did and would recommend this company to anyone!

From start to finish Surf & Turf was great to deal with. Pricing was fantastic and they were the only estimate out of (5) that I received that actually inspected the roof and didn’t rely on remote satellite images. The crew they sent were top notch, pleasant to deal with and did a fantastic job overall. My front and backyard looked immaculate after they left. Thank you again for a great job, I will not hesitate to recommend your services.
