Considering Skylights? Hire a Professional
Whether you are preparing breakfast for the family or getting ready for bed, the Michigan sky is a wonderful sight. Only thing is, most people don’t get to enjoy the view when INSIDE their home. Skylights are a great option for those looking to add some natural lighting into their home. If you are considering adding skylights to your home, make sure you have a reputable company install a no leak, high quality skylight.
There are many positive reasons to have a skylight installed in your home. They provide natural lighting, they make a room look larger, they add better ventilation and fresh air in your home, and all of this will increase the value of your home to potential buyers.
While there are many benefits of a skylight, it’s possible they can cause you problems if not installed correctly. Skylights won’t last forever, as they are no different than a window, and in fact they take more of a beating as they are on your roof. You will want to make sure that you are working with someone who knows how the skylight will affect your home (i.e. you wouldn’t want to install one that allows too much sunlight into your home, making it hotter and less energy efficient).
At The Roof Company, we can replace your current builder’s grade skylights (most likely made with acrylic bubbles or cheaper glass ones) or install new skylights for you. The brand we use is Velux and we can install their ‘“No Leak” Skylights. These are the BEST in the industry. These skylights come with low “E” tempered glass. Want something more? We can install units that vent, have power opening vents, and you can choose from numerous blind/shade options.
If you’re replacing your roof and are interested in adding skylights to your home, make sure you call The Roof Company and talk to a licensed roofer about having skylights installed in the proper location based on your personal design goals.
