What Skylights Can Do For You
Skylights allow for more sunlight in your home or business. This increased light can translate into savings for your pocket, since you will use less electricity to keep your home or business lit. Some homeowners have saved up to 10% in energy costs after installing new skylights. Studies also suggest workers are more productive if they see more sunshine throughout the day. Exposure to light is also linked to happiness and improvement in mood, and our service professionals will make you smile too with their friendly and hardworking approach. Skylights that open and close can also provide better ventilation for your home and business, letting in fresh air while potentially cutting down on cooling costs.
Depending on the location of the skylight on your roof, you can control the amount of heat and light that enters your home. Skylights on the eastern portion of a roof let in the most sunlight in the morning. Skylights on the western side of the roof have the most light and heat in the afternoon. Skylights on the north side of a roof usually provide the most consistent light, while skylights facing south are the best option for comfortable levels of heat gain in the winter.
Our experts can install skylights on any style of roof. The only limit is the sky and your imagination!
Choosing a Skylight Style
Skylights are available as deck mounted skylights and curb mounted skylights. A deck mounted skylight is nailed directly to the roof for easy installation and energy savings. Curb mounted skylights are mounted on a skylight frame. Depending on the angle of your roof, one style of skylight may make more sense for your home or building.
Other state-of-the art features offered include solar powered skylights that negate the need for electrical wiring during installation, and electric skylights that open with a push of a button and close when it rains thanks to a sensor. In addition to installing new skylights, our roofing experts at Paul Bange Roofing of South Florida are skilled at replacing old skylights, whether they’re deck mounted or have a skylight frame.
Other factors to consider are the type of glazing you would like for your skylights. Plastic glazing is usually the most cost-effective option, and less likely to break compared to other glazing styles. Plastic glazing’s are the least scratch resistant and do not block ultraviolet rays as well as other glazing material.
Polycarbonates and acrylics are two types of plastic glazing’s used with skylights.
A secondary option for skylights is to glaze them with glass, which is more resistant to natural elements than plastic glazes. Glass used for skylights is tempered and laminated to keep it from breaking.
The last feature to consider when it comes to skylights is the shape. Rectangles, circles, ovals, diamonds, and triangles are the most common shapes selected for skylights. A sloped skylight will shed water and debris like leaves more easily than flat skylights.
