What to Consider When Adding a Skylight

Would you love to have more natural light in your home? Skylights are an excellent choice for Eastern PA and Western NJ homeowners who want to bring the outdoors in with natural overhead lighting while adding style and value to their home. 

The skylight installation experts at Master’s Home Solutions can install a variety of Eastern PA skylights to admit natural light, increase ventilation, and improve the air quality in your home. With our energy-efficient options, you can also save money on your energy costs! If you’ve been thinking about adding a skylight to your Eastern PA or Western NJ home, here are a few things to consider:

Choose High-Quality Products

The addition of skylights for your Eastern PAhome is a major investment that deserve only the highest-quality products for durable, long-lasting enjoyment. With a large variety of styles available, consider energy-efficient glass, condensation-reducing glaze, and adequate ventilation to best protect your investment for years to come, save you money on energy bills, and add value to your home. 

Know Where the Sun Shines

While you might want a skylight in a particular space, your Western NJ roofing contractor will be able to guide you to the best location to maximize the amount of natural light that enters your home. If you’re an early riser, an east-facing skylight will catch the morning rays and admit soft, diffused light the remainder of the day. West-facing skylights have a similar effect, with the natural light the brightest in the afternoon. North-facing skylights admit a soft light all day, while south-facing skylights can allow too much light in and overheat a space. Options such as integrated blinds and glazes can help control the amount of light that enters through a skylight.

Select the Right Size for Your Space

The primary goal of a skylight is to admit natural light into your home, and this is best achieved with the proper size. An Eastern PA roofing contractor can help you determine the right size for your space, whether it’s a dark, second bathroom or a kitchen with an open floor plan. For small spaces or rooms below an attic where full-sized skylights can’t be installed, tubular skylights are a good option that allows diffused light to permeate the space.

Hire a Professional Skylight Installer

While there are skylight kits available, hiring a professional to install your skylight is your best bet. In addition to the considerations mentioned above, installation entails numerous other elements—determining rafter placement, installing flashing, adhering to building codes, and more—that are best left to the pros.
