Adding skylights to your home can increase the value of your home, but they offer so much more. Have you ever walked into a home and your eyes are immediately drawn to the skylights in the ceiling? Matched with the right trim and décor, skylights can be a simply stunning amenity!
In homes and commercial buildings, skylights offer benefits such as:
- Increased natural light
- A brighter, more welcoming interior
- Boosted mood
- Lower energy consumption
Realtors know that houses with skylights are more attractive to homebuyers and have the potential of selling quicker than houses without skylights. People love good lighting!
Types of Skylights
Atlanta Metro Roofing installs many types of skylights, namely fixed, tubular and vented. Some are installed with automated blinds, which is a great feature. Our skylight panes are made from glass or acrylic, and each offers its own benefits. Glass panes will be more expensive but also offer more durability. As far as the size of your skylight, we suggest one square foot of light for every 20 feet of floor space. As a rule, a skylight is normally no more than five percent of your floor area. When we meet with you, we will discuss each option in detail and, together, we will find the perfect solution for your home.
When we are contracted to install skylights, we properly install each unit so condensation does not form. Condensation is a common problem that occurs when an inexperienced installer tries to install a skylight. Because Atlanta Metro Roofing has over 20 years of experience, you can be rest assured we will install your skylight with expertise and skill.
