WOULD A SKYLIGHT OR ROOF WINDOW SUIT YOUR HOME?

  • Adding a roof window or skylight to a home is a
    decision many modern homeowners are making,
    especially if they want to add light to their
    interior spaces or increase the value of their
    property. However, these windows require careful
    planning before and during installation, and
    should be selected only after lengthy
    consideration.
  • Stylish and practical
  • A professionally installed roof window or
    skylight can certainly add a stylish element to
    any home, but they also serve several practical
    purposes, such as allowing more light into rooms,
    and helping to make the whole property feel more
    open, spacious and airy.

  • If a home has trees or shrubs partially blocking
    their regular windows which they dont want to
    cut down, or are unable to, then adding a
    skylight or window in the roof can instantly add
    more natural light. The same is true if regular,
    existing windows are not facing the sun and dont
    let light in for most of the day. Its also often
    the case that smaller properties such as
    townhouses, dont have many windows fitted into
    their original structure, providing the perfect
    opportunity to add light and a feeling of space
    with a skylight or roof window.
  • The benefits of natural light
  • Our health and general wellbeing are usually
    improved if we are exposed to natural sunlight on
    a regular basis, as it helps us to keep healthy
    sleep schedules and can even make our moods
    lighter and brighter.

  • Seeing open sky during the day and even the night
    is something that appeals to many of us, too, and
    aside from the health benefits, it can even help
    us to reduce our energy bills as we use less
    artificial, costly forms of lighting. Natural
    light can also make a home look more appealing to
    those interested in buying the property and can
    encourage a swifter sale.
  • Your roof window and skylight options
  • While roof windows all serve the same purpose,
    they can sometimes be described under different
    terms, such as skylights and dormers, and heres
    why

  • Skylights
  • These are usually fixed windows that tend to
    follow the natural angle of the existing roof and
    serve to channel light down into the rooms below.
    They arent usually able to be opened and closed
    but are airtight and can be an extremely
    attractive addition to any home, modern or
    otherwise.
  • Dormers
  • These roof windows protrude from the main part of
    the property at a vertical pitch that is parallel
    to the walls of the home and come in several
    styles. While some properties already have these
    features, its common for homeowners to add them
    during renovations to add more space to the
    interior of the home.

  • Roof windows
  • These windows may differ from skylights if
    theyre able to be opened and closed in the same
    way as a regular window. Usually sitting at a
    slight, gentle angle to the roof, they allow for
    a wider, more expansive view and are the perfect
    addition to the loft or bedroom of a property
    with narrow rooms in which wall space may be
    restricted.

    roof window or skylight, then talk to a
