Benefits of a Skylight Installation

Hey there, it’s your friendly neighborhood roofer here to talk about the benefits of having a skylight in your home. If you are planning for a roof replacement, you should consider having the contractor add a skylight to your home.

Now, I know skylights can seem like a luxury, but trust me, they’re worth it. The extra effort and expense associated with the installation will pay off in the long run. We provide free estimates for skylight installations, so we can help you decide whether or not a skylight is the right choice for your roof.

So let’s get into it. Here are the benefits of having a skylight in your home.

Natural Light

First and foremost, skylights bring in natural light. And let me tell you, there’s nothing quite like natural light to brighten up a room. It can make a space feel bigger, airier, and just plain happier. Plus, natural light is good for your health too. It can improve your mood, boost your energy levels, and even help you sleep better at night.

Energy Savings

But the benefits of skylights don’t stop there. They can also help you save on energy costs. Because skylights let in natural light, you can turn off those energy-hungry artificial lights during the day. That can add up to some serious savings on your energy bills.

Home Value

Skylights are a desirable feature for many homebuyers, and they can add value to your property. Potential buyers may be willing to pay a premium for a home with skylights, especially if they’re placed in strategic locations to maximize natural light.

Ventilation and Air Flow

Properly placed skylights can also help with ventilation and air flow in your home. They can allow hot air to escape, which can help to keep your home cooler in the summer months. They can also bring in fresh air and help to improve indoor air quality.

Overall, skylights can bring a wide range of benefits to your home, from improving the ambiance and feel of a space to saving on energy costs and adding value to your property. While they may require some maintenance from time to time, the benefits are well worth it.

Types of Skylights

Skylights come in all shapes and sizes, and choosing the right one for your home can be a bit overwhelming. But don’t worry, we’re here to help.

The first thing you need to know is that skylights come in two main types: fixed and operable. 


Fixed skylights are just what they sound like – they don’t open or close. They’re a good choice if you just want to bring in natural light and don’t need to control the ventilation.


Operable skylights, on the other hand, can be opened and closed. They’re a good choice if you want to have more control over the ventilation in your home. Operable skylights come in a few different styles, including:

  • Ventilating skylights: These skylights can be opened to allow for ventilation and can be closed for weather protection.

  • Tubular skylights: These skylights are small and tube-shaped and are designed to bring natural light into a specific area, such as a hallway or bathroom.

  • Domed skylights: These skylights have a rounded, dome-shaped top and are designed to bring in natural light from a wider area.

Now, in addition to these main types, skylights also come in different sizes, shapes, and materials. You’ll want to choose one that fits the style of your home and meets your specific needs.

So, there you have it – a quick rundown of the different types of skylights. Whether you want a fixed skylight to bring in natural light or an operable one to control ventilation, there’s a skylight out there that’s right for you. Just be sure to do your research and choose one that’s well-suited to your needs.
