Skylights are very much like windows when you consider what they can do to your home. If installed properly, they let in adequate natural lighting to brighten up the interior, improve energy efficiency that results in lower utility bills and ensure ventilation, privacy and indoor air quality.
Before you invest in these additional features for your home, make sure you know how they could affect your roofing system first. Done-Right Roofing & Sheet Metal Ltd., your local source of asphalt shingle and metal roofing systems, explains more.
Skylights allow a greater amount of sunlight into homes than windows. Thus, it is a good idea to learn about the products’ energy performance ratings so you can make your selection based on the local climate and your home’s design. Look for the ENERGY STAR® and National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) labels to make sure you’re buying the most energy-efficient skylights. Make the wrong choice and your roof will bear the brunt of the heat transfer that can happen through skylights.
Installing skylights usually involve the application of new flashing and sealants, not to mention the need to cut through important roofing materials. Working with an experienced contractor that specializes in this kind of home improvement is imperative to lessen the risk of problems associated with poor installation, particularly moisture intrusion and leaks that may lead to an untimely roof repair.
