A Guide to Installing Skylights in Your Home, Fairfield, Ohio

If you’re looking for a way to let more natural light into your home, consider installing Velux Skylights. These features offer many benefits.   If you’ve been wondering about the advantages, as well as the maintenance required to keep them in good condition, here’s a simple guide you should follow.

What Are the Benefits of Skylights?

In addition to providing more healthy sunlight, these features increase your home’s energy efficiency by cutting down on the need to use electricity. You’ll save money on your utility bills and also have more privacy, as skylights are installed in the ceiling and thus, won’t provide the opportunity for people to see into your home through a traditionally placed window. 

What’s the Best Placement for Skylights?

skylightAlthough there is no single best spot for installing skylights on the roof, consider whether you’d like your home to be warmer or if you would simply prefer additional light. If the former is your priority, place them on a north-facing aspect of the roof; if the latter is the goal, install them, so they face south.

How Can You Maintain Skylights?

Schedule an annual inspection with a qualified roofer to check the skylights, in addition to the chimney and other features. They will make sure they are still in good condition. If they begin leaking, call for repairs as soon as possible, so the issue doesn’t worsen. Finally, if you notice any cracks or other damage in their windows, it’s best to have the glass replaced to preserve their integrity. Keep in mind the great warranty provided by Velux Skylights and Ray St. Clair Roofing.
