Tips for Selecting Skylights for Your Home

If you’re looking for a great way to increase natural light in your home while adding an interesting decorative element, consider installing skylights. With so many different factors to consider when shopping for skylights, choosing the right kind for your home can be tough. Here are four factors to consider when choosing skylights for your Florida home.

Plastic vs. Glass Skylights

Skylights are available with both glass and plastic panes. There are a number of different unique pros and cons of each kind. Plastic skylights are available in a wide variety of shapes and are also very durable. However, they can become hazy and cloudy over time. Glass skylights remain clear and energy-efficient, but they are also more easily damaged by debris in harsh weather.

Skylight Shapes

 

Another factor to consider is the shape of your skylights. Standard skylights are typically square or rectangular, much like any normal replacement window. However, shaped skylights can make your roof seem more interesting and exciting. Plastic skylights are even available in domed or pyramid shapes.


Energy Efficiency

Because installing skylights requires part of your roofing to be cut away, it’s important that your skylight can provide your home with an adequate level of insulation. Choosing skylights with high-efficiency glass and inert gas fills can help to lower your energy costs and keep your home comfortable.

 

Placement on Roof

Finally, carefully consider where your skylight will be placed on your roof. Your roofing contractor can help you determine where your skylights will be most functional and attractive without compromising the integrity of your roofing system.

To learn more about installing skylights on your roof, contact Hercules Roofing, based in South Florida, by calling 561-955-9889. We serve all of Florida, offering the very best roof repair and roof installation services.
