We are your Skylight Installation Specialist.
A prime home improvement element that makes a smart home that much smarter, a skylight brightens up a master bedroom, loft, or children’s bedroom with the natural power of the sun. After installation, colors appear much truer, and a balanced daylight appears that fills even the most remote corners of the room. Skylights use the chimney effect when opened along with lower level windows, and help hot air naturally rise gently away. Also providing daylight and a unique view without having home dwellers sacrifice any privacy, you’re going to love these sun-kissed additions courtesy of our expert skylight specialist team at JRC.
The Benefits of Adding a Skylight to Your Colorado Home
Skylight has always been the preferred home lighting option, by installing one or more skylights in your home you can uplift the ambiance. The benefits of Skylight are more than just aesthetic, there are plenty of practical benefits too:
- Skylights Boost Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
The natural sunlight let in by a skylight will provide warmth as well as light during the winter, reducing home heating bills in the process. Alternatively, in the summer, some types of skylights can be opened to ventilate your home and lessen your reliance on electric air conditioning. With a skylight, the added light will also lessen your home’s reliance on artificial light, providing additional energy benefits regardless of the season.
- Skylights Are Pro-Privacy
A bathroom skylight can allow for maximum natural light without exposing the room’s occupants to neighbors and passersby. If you are big on your privacy, you’ll love having a skylight.
- Skylights Increases Your House Appeal
Having a skylight installed in your home is perceived by many as a sign of sophistication. This could potentially increase the property’s appeal and add a positive impact on your home’s resale value.
Things to Consider Before Installing a Skylight
If you’re still undecided about having a skylight for your home, there are many things to consider when determining what kind of skylight is best, and here are a few of them:
- We have two broad types of skylights, fixed skylights are the simplest types you will find but modern manufacturers now offer vented skylights that open manually or automatically. Some even come with built-in blinds to control the amount of light let in.
- The location of the plumbing, HVAC, or wiring can also interfere with the desired skylight location. Before installing a skylight, they will need to be re-routed or a new location decided on.
- Your home’s roof size also matters. Many skylight products and hardware are designed with different types of rooftops in mind; slate, metal, tile, cedar, or other materials. Choosing the wrong type may add to the cost of the project.
- Is there an attic separating the roof and ceiling? If so, our skylight specialists will install a framed tunnel to channel sunlight (chase) for you.
