Homeowners are always looking for ways that enhance their home’s performance via home improvements. These improvements often range from roof replacements to a new siding installation and even window replacements. However, if you ask a general construction company, there’s a chance they’ll tell you of a home improvement option that you didn’t think of: tubular skylights.
In this post, Timberland Exteriors discusses the various reasons why tubular skylights are good investments for your home.
Easy to Install
When it comes to installation, tubular skylights won’t give you too much trouble. This is because it consists of only three parts: a light-collecting dome on the roof, a diffusing lens in the ceiling and a mirrored pipe to connect the two. It also only requires minimal roof cutting, so you can expect it to be installed in a few hours.
Due to the materials needed and the ease of installation, tubular skylights are the least costly daylighting option. Since they’re small, they’re also more energy efficient, allowing you to lower your heating and cooling costs and save a significant amount in the process.
Installing traditional skylights in every room may sound like a good idea but it’s not a practical one. This is because some rooms don’t have the space for them while some can’t be supported by certain parts of the roof. Tubular skylights, on the other hand, fit where full skylights can’t and can be installed on any roof pitch. To install tubular skylights in your home, don’t hesitate to approach a home remodeling contractor like the ones from Timberland Exteriors to get the job done.
While some rooms don’t require much light, they could still benefit from natural daylight. Tubular skylights allows daylight to be collected at the roof’s opening and reflect into the room below, providing an adequate amount of natural light. Tubular skylights are also completely closed off and can’t be opened so they can help keep your home well-insulated no matter the season.
