Skylights Chattanooga TN
Let our Roofers in the Chattanooga, Hixson and North GA provide the best guttering for you!
So you’re thinking about having a skylight installed in your home or business, but you’re not sure if it’s the right decision to make or not?
Just like paying a roofing company to install a new roof (or to install new gutters or windows), there are things to consider when paying a skylight installation company to install new skylights in your home or business.
Is A Skylight Installation Project Right For You?
At Tallent Roofing of Chattanooga we have successfully installed skylights for over 40 years and we have nothing but satisfied customers to prove it. However, not every business or residential house is well equipped to have skylights installed.
This is why we always ask our customers to let us schedule a free evaluation with them first before we give them their free estimate on having their new skylight windows successfully installed in their home or business.
Below are some of the benefits and advantages to skylights and also a few things to be aware of before starting the installation process. We always go over these things with our clients during our first appointment with them.
Benefits To Skylights:
Skylight windows provide fresh air and natural light to the environment
Whether your family appreciates the fresh air from the outdoors, or the bright and beautiful natural light from the sun above, adding skylights to your home or business will help refresh the environment around you, allowing you to think more positively and get more done in less time.
Skylights can also help increase your body's Vitamin D levels
It has been proven by medical doctors around the world that our bodies need Vitamin D to remain active and healthy.
By adding skylight windows to your home or business, it will allow you to get that boost of Vitamin D energy (helping you stay more fit and productive) no matter what the weather is like outside.
Skylights have been proven to increase your home's resale value
It has been proven by the National Realtor Association that over 90% of home buyers are more comfortable in a business or home that feels more open and spacious - instead of small and tight.
Bathrooms are usually the smallest room in our homes or offices. By adding a skylight to the roof of your bathrooms (or any other small room in your home or business) it will make the room feel much larger and more spacious, increasing the value of your home.
Skylights can help save energy 24/7 - 365 days per year
No matter what time of year it may be, our roofs will always absorb heat from the sun. So why not take advantage of the natural light and allow it to help heat your home during the cold seasons?
But if the skylight heats the room during the cold months, won't it create more heat during the hot months? Not necessarily. Ask one of our professionals to fill you in on our Velux Skylights and how they can block the heat from the sun during the summer months while automatically helping heat the room during the cold winter months.
Things To Be Aware Of Regarding Skylights
While there are many advantages to adding skylight windows to the roof of your home or business, there are a few things to be aware of before deciding to move forward with the install.
Installing skylights in the wrong location
There are 2 factors to consider before starting the new installation - what is below the skylight and what is above the skylight.
Most people only dream about having their skylights shine beautifully into their home or office but never think about the outside location.
Before installing your new skylights it is highly recommended that you first check to make sure there are no trees or limbs up above or around your home where you want to have the skylights installed.
Not only would it be aggravating to have leaves, nuts, and branches fall onto the glass (blocking nature's view), but limbs or branches that fall and hit your skylight could easily shatter the glass causing great danger - especially during a major storm.
Too much sunlight can be harmful to your home
While the sun can bring warmth and comfort to the inside of your home, it can also damage some interior wooden surfaces such as wooden desks, doors and flooring.
Having a constant daily flow of sun shining onto your furniture (particularly doors and floors) will start beaching the wooden surface to the point it no longer matches the rest of the wooden surfaces around it. By changing the location of the skylight before you install it, you can control where the light will be shining and keep it from damaging your doors, floors or wooden furniture.
At Tallent Roofing on Chattanooga we look at all projects as if it was our own home. If the natural light from the sun is likely to damage any wooden surfaces, we will suggest using our Velux skylights that have UV protection. You also have the option of built-in sliding window shades to help stop the sun from damaging your furniture during the brightest hours of the day.
Investing in poor quality skylights "without" solid warranties
Over the last 40 years we have dealt with many skylight issues where our roofing services were needed to fix or repair a problem. These skylight problems were caused by another roofing company or construction businesses who never completed the install job correctly.
Skylights are the most common cause of leaks in a roof which is why it is crucial that the skylights you install come with a 100% complete "No Leak Guarantee" for at least 10 years.
If your skylight windows do not have a 100% complete coverage guarantee (for at least 10 years), chances are you will regret buying and installing them in the end.
All of our Velux Skylights come with a 10 year guaranteed warranty. If anything goes wrong with your Velux windows, Velux will fix them or replace them for you - free of charge.
