Skylights provide an excellent source of natural light into your home. You don’t need to use any lamps or ceiling lights during the day, even if the room has no or few other windows. They help with your heating bills by utilizing solar heat for areas under the light. In addition, they can help with cooling bills by creating cross-ventilation when you have skylights that can open and allow air movement.
Some people feel they can hire a handyman or install skylights on their own. While the installation is not rocket science, and you or a handyman may be able to get the pieces securely in place, you have other things to consider that could affect your roof. Discover a few reasons to hire professional roofers to help you with anything pertaining to skylights and their installation.
