Roofing, Siding,…and Skylights!
Ask your average homeowner, and he or she will likely tell you that the thought of installing a skylight in their homes is one that they’ve never truly entertained simply because they consider such a feature to be more of a luxury than a necessity. The question of why pay more just to let in a little extra light is likely one that weighs heavily on many minds. What’s lost in this line of thinking are the many benefits that skylights have to offer. We at Universal Roofing are here to reveal those to you. After you see all of the things that a skylight can bring into your home, you may have to rethink the “luxury vs. necessity argument” altogether.
Benefits of Installing a Skylight
Yes, the primary role of a skylight is to let in natural light. Yet don’t sell the advantage of having added interior illumination short. Don’t think of the light itself as the reason why you should consider investing in this feature; rather, consider instead the benefits that come as a result of its presence. These include:
- Lower energy costs: Adding a skylight to a home has been shown to cut an average of 10 percent off of homeowners’ energy expenses across the board.
- Less mold and mildew buildup: Increased sunlight acts as a natural disinfectant, drying damp areas and lessening the chance of potentially harmful substances to start growing.
- Greater interior visual appeal: Natural light helps to better bring out the color and definition of your interior décor, giving your home a more vibrant look.
