The Art of Skylights: Enhancing Your Home with Natural Light


Most roofing accessories are enhancements to protect your roof and your home (gutters, air vents, etc.). Although they do important jobs, these accessories don’t add to a home’s ambience or indoor appearance and therefore don’t tend to get people excited. 

Skylights, however, are a different matter. Skylights can make amazing enhancements to a home if they’re carefully selected and installed. Working with skylights of all types is one of the important roofing services in Houston, TX that we offer. In this post, we’re going to go into the art of the skylight and how they can improve your home.

The Art of Skylights

It may sound a touch pompous to refer to the “art” of the skylight, but it’s often astonishing how much of a visual difference one of these portals can make in a house. The natural light that comes into a house through a skylight is impossible to duplicate in any other way. They make spaces appear larger as well as brighter, and they can help with radiant heating in the winter. 

Bringing in natural light can have a major impact on a home. Aside from just how attractive it is, natural light is linked to improved mood and overall mental health. Some skylights allow for ventilation that contributes to fresh air circulation—which is something that many modern homes lack. You can combat poor air quality with these ventilating skylights and create a more comfortable and inviting home.

Skylight Types

There are multiple types of skylights to think about, each with its own special advantages.

1. Fixed Skylights

Fixed skylights provide a constant source of natural light, illuminating a space with the beauty of the outdoors. We can seamlessly install these into a roof, and they’re affordable and easy to maintain. 

2. Ventilating Skylights

These skylights allow for the free flow of fresh air, enhancing the overall ventilation of your house. 

3. Solar-Powered Ventilating Skylights

Combine sustainability with functionality with solar-powered ventilating skylights. Harnessing the power of the sun, these skylights not only provide ventilation but also improve energy efficiency. 

4. Tilt Window Skylights

Easily customizable, these skylights allow you to adjust the angle of the windows, giving you the ability to tailor the amount of light entering your home. 

5. Tubular Skylights

Short on space? Tubular skylights offer a space-saving design while efficiently channeling natural light into the home. You can allow in natural light into even the most confined spaces in your house.

6. Manual Control Rod Skylights

For those who appreciate hands-on control, manual control rod skylights provide the convenience of adjusting light levels as needed.
