Are you planning an addition along with a roof installation this season? You may want to consider having skylights installed. These additions provide your home with access to ventilation and natural light, along with increasing the appeal of the room they’re installed in. Before proceeding with this installation, here are a few factors that you’ll want to consider.
South Point Construction shares some of them in today’s post.
1. Choose skylights that fit your needs. Before installing a skylight, first, determine your needs and what type of skylight you will need and its position for greater convenience. Be sure to factor in the local climate and your home’s design so that it accentuates your home’s beauty and energy efficiency.
2. Skylights cause glares occasionally. Skylights take-up greater space compared to conventional windows. However, they let in a greater amount of sunlight, which may lead to glare. This will make your room uncomfortably hot and bright. Fortunately, there are skylight options that reduce glare, so make sure to pick one that allows your preferred amount of light.
3. Match your skylights with your home’s architectural style. Make sure to choose a skylight that complements your home’s overall theme and motif. This makes your home appear more inviting and increases its curb appeal.
4. Consider the room they are installed in. Skylights are normally installed in the attic or rooms with vaulted ceilings, making them appear spacious and fresh. To get the most out of your skylights, you should consider installing them in rooms without access to natural light. In turn, this reduces your need for artificial lighting, increasing your energy efficiency.
