Three Hints for Skylight Lovers
Dark rooms in your home may tempt you to consider adding a skylight. Before you get a skylight installed in your home or business, we suggest you educate yourself with these helpful tips and tidbits of information. So, here are the three things we think you should know before you add a skylight:
- All skylight installations are not equal. Skylights have had a bad reputation over the years. There is a heavily circulated myth that all skylights leak. This is not due to the skylight itself in most situations though. Following manufacturer instructions during installation means you won’t have leaks for as long as 20 years. Unfortunately, not all contractors are as devoted to quality installation as we are at Dickson Roofing.
- You can control the amount and direction of light. You probably didn’t realize that the shape of the skylight is what will control where the light goes in the room you are installing it in. Flared skylights are best for rooms where you want the light to spread out. However, if you want to provide more focused lighting that is entering the room in a straight line then it is best to choose a straight-sided skylight.
- Quality is never something to skimp on when it comes to your roof. There are a number of things to consider when picking your skylight out. We suggest you look at things like sound reduction, load and wind resistance, water tightness, and energy efficiency as well as ventilation, shading, and UV coatings. Lots of manufacturers are also offering sustainably made products as a means of protecting the environment. This is a serious undertaking, so make sure you make the right first choice in product.
You may have determined that adding a skylight will be a great way to infuse natural lighting into your home or office environment, just remember one final thing, skylight glare has to be avoided. Glare won’t just make the room too bright; it will also increase the temperature. Too much sunshine can washout fabrics and make other surfaces fade over time. Adding a filter or shade to the skylight is a good option but it is best to ensure it is installed with minimal sun glare in the first place.
