Understanding the Pros & Cons of Getting a Skylight


With a well-placed skylight, you get natural light, ventilation and energy efficiency. However, the only way to maximize these benefits effectively is to have it installed by an experienced professional window contractor, so don’t hire just anyone offering cheap products and installation services. Otherwise, your skylight could encounter problems later on. 


The Benefits of Installing a Skylight

Like normal windows, skylights can be opened for better airflow. However, unlike normal windows, skylights provide better cross-ventilation and let in more cool, fresh air. This prevents stuffiness and keeps your indoor environment comfortable for longer. It also reduces the need to use your air conditioner as much, which results in less energy consumption. 

Adding a skylight will also make your home more attractive and desirable to potential home buyers. If you’re planning to sell your house soon, a skylight can enhance your home’s exterior design as well as raise its property value when you put it on the market. Skylights also bring natural light into the house, which reduces the need for artificial light during the day. They’re useful during the winter months as well because they let more warmth into your living space. This reduces your heating bills while improving your home’s energy efficiency.

The Consequences of Poor Skylight Installation

If you choose low-quality materials for your skylight just to save money, you’ll undoubtedly encounter more problems with your installation later on. You also won’t benefit much from a DIY job since you’re likely to have leaks after the installation. A DIY skylight installation can also compromise your roof’s protection against the elements, as well as its energy efficiency. You may even risk voiding your warranty by doing this!

Only top-quality materials and professional workmanship can guarantee a successful skylight installation. In addition, you should get a professional opinion on which type of skylight should be installed, a decision which will be based on your needs and budget. A professional window contractor has the experience necessary to determine the correct placement and install your skylight properly.

Working with Bone Dry Roofing was best decision I made to deal with a leak in my roof. They took their time to correctly determine where the leak was coming from and the best way to fix it! And, they did! Everyone I worked with from their staff was awesome! I will definitely use them again!!

Initially called this company for a quote because I saw their truck in Denver and the driver used their blinker. Compared to 2 other roofing companies their quote was in the middle and was later adjusted for less materials being used than expected. After signing the contract they were ready to start the next week on a garage roof and home roof repair (weather permitting). The team was respectful of our home & our neighbor’s. Throughout the entire process the communication was great. Highly recommend!
We are so happy with the service we received from Bone Dry Roofing! Nick came out quickly and did an inspection and a quick estimate for us! The repairs were done quickly! Fernando did an amazing job! He was very friendly. We have a very pitched roof and so I was very impressed with his bravery. ( would not catch me up there ever)<br /> <br /> Very happy customer and highly recommend!
