Skylights – Could They Be The Answer To Your Additional Light Needs?

Skylights are a unique and clever way to add more natural light to your home or business. A skylight can be added to any room that has direct roof access, which includes both pitched and flat roofs. One of the many benefits of rooflights is that they make use of otherwise dead space. This means you get the light you need without taking up valuable wall space that can be used for a range of other purposes. They are also ideal when considering extensions where a traditional window may not be feasible or adding one may reduce either your privacy or that of your neighbours.

Things To Think About When Considering Adding A Rooflight

There are a host of considerations to take into account if you are thinking of adding skylights to your home or business. Firstly, it is important to ensure that your roof is in good condition and that adding a skylight will not compromise its integrity. Safety always needs to come first. Then you need to consider the type of roof you have. Pitched and flat roofs have different qualities and therefore need different approaches to rooflights and windows. Positioning and skylight size also need to be considered as these will affect the amount of light that enters the room. It will also affect the heat and UV levels in the room, depending on the type of glass you choose.
