30 Jun How do Skylights Add Value to Your Home?
Well-designed skylights add beauty, style, and value to your home. They can also save energy and provide health benefits. A skylight in the master bedroom provides a panorama of the night sky. A skylight installed in a dark kitchen or a windowless bathroom floods the room with natural light, completely transforming its character.
There are many types of skylights to choose from including fixed, ventilated, and tubular or sun tunnels. Consider these advantages to skylights:
Adding skylights to your home will give it a distinct look. Skylights provide natural light and can add ventilation. And they can help save on energy bills. Humans, plants, and animals thrive under natural light. Sunlight from skylights makes rooms appear larger and increases the beauty of the space. Natural lighting helps people be more productive, happier, healthier and calmer.
The optimum time to add skylights is when you are installing a new roof. Whether you choose fixed, ventilated, or tubular (sun tunnel) skylights, it is best to hire a professional who knows how to install and repair existing installations.
