The Benefits of Skylight Installation 

There are several good reasons for homeowners to move forward with getting skylights. Our office offers financing to help you do that while maintaining a stable monthly budget. 

Some of the prime advantages of skylights are these: 

  • Enhanced natural light - Skylights allow more natural light to enter your home, reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day and creating a brighter, more inviting atmosphere.
  • Improved energy efficiency - Skylights may help lower energy bills by maximizing daylight and reducing reliance on electric lights. Properly positioned skylights can also provide passive solar heating, further enhancing your energy efficiency.
  • Improved aesthetics - Skylights add a unique architectural element to the room, enhancing the visual appeal and creating a sense of openness and space.
  • Psychological well-being - Increased exposure to natural light has been shown to improve a person’s mood and productivity. Skylights can create a more pleasant living environment. 
  • Ventilation - Ventilated skylights can help improve indoor air quality by allowing fresh air to circulate, reducing humidity levels, and minimizing the risk of mold and mildew.
  • Increased property value - High-quality skylights can enhance the attractiveness of your property to potential buyers, potentially increasing its market value and offering you the chance for a return on your investment. 
  • Environmental benefits - Utilizing natural light and reducing energy consumption contributes to a smaller carbon footprint, making skylights an eco-friendly choice for your property.

Common Causes of Skylight Damage

We handle repair work on a regular basis, and some of the most common reasons for problems include these: 

  • Improper installation - Incorrect installation can lead to leaks, drafts, and structural issues. In addition to our 20-plus years of experience, we offer homeowners the security of a strong warranty on our work. 
  • Weather conditions - Extreme weather, such as the heavy rain and strong winds we get in Central Florida, can cause physical damage to skylights, leading to cracks, leaks, or shattered glass.
  • Aging materials - Skylight components such as seals and flashing can deteriorate. This wear and tear can result in leaks and reduced energy efficiency.
  • Debris accumulation - Leaves, branches, and other debris can accumulate around skylights, obstructing drainage systems and causing water to pool. The consequences can include leaks and water damage.
  • Thermal expansion and contraction - Temperature fluctuations can cause the materials around the skylight to expand and contract, potentially leading to gaps, cracks, or seal failure.
  • Structural movement - Shifts in the building’s structure, whether due to settling or external forces, can affect the alignment and sealing of skylights, leading to potential damage and leaks.

Tips for Skylight Maintenance

A proactive approach to inspection can help your skylights last longer and work better. Homeowners can take practical steps like these: 

  • Regular cleaning - Wash the skylights with mild soap and water to remove dirt, debris, and other buildup. This facilitates maximum light penetration and prevents staining.
  • Inspect seals and flashing - Keeping these components intact helps to prevent leaks and drafts.
  • Check for condensation - Monitor your skylights for condensation between the panes, which could indicate a seal failure. Addressing this issue promptly helps maintain energy efficiency and prevents moisture damage.
  • Trim overhanging branches - Keep the trees near your skylights trimmed back to prevent branches from falling and causing damage during storms. This also reduces debris accumulation on the skylight surface.
  • Monitor for leaks - After heavy rain or storms, inspect the interior area around your skylights for any signs of water leakage. Early detection of leaks allows for quick repairs before more extensive damage occurs.
  • Maintain ventilation - If your skylight is ventilated, ensure its mechanisms function correctly. Proper ventilation helps maintain indoor air quality and reduces humidity levels.

The skylight technicians in our Orlando office can further help by putting you on a regular professional inspection program.
