Update Your Home With A Skylight That Can Increase Its Value.
Adding a skylight to your home is an option most homeowners should consider. The exposure to natural light has been shown to help people sleep, elevate moods, and increase levels of vitamin D. Why not try and soak up some beneficial rays in your own home? Stay warm, bright and cozy in winter, why not? Skylights provide a source for natural light that doesn’t affect your privacy and are perfect for airing out your home!
Where Do I Start?
The most important aspect to installing a skylight in your existing home is to interview and hire a professional, experienced contractor. Skylights can have either a positive or negative impact on your home’s value. If installed properly, a skylight provides venting options and warm light. Installed poorly and you’re looking at a leaky roof and energy drain. Ask questions, do your research, and feel confident in your project.
What’s The Next Step?
Your professional installer will cut a hole in your roof and adapt the framing, if necessary, to accommodate the skylight. They will then install the skylight, placing flashing in and around the opening to provide a moisture barrier. The final steps are to add shingles or metal to the roof and build a chase from the skylight to the ceiling. A chase is the space from roof to room where the light streams in. These areas typically need to be drywalled and painted.
