Skylights are increasingly popular for homes and businesses. They offer an efficient and effective way to provide natural lighting and save on energy costs. Empire Roofing & More has teamed with the largest roof window and skylight manufacturer in the world — VELUX® — to educate home and business owners.
Whether you have existing skylights or are considering a new installation, Empire Roofing & More can help you understand the details and benefits of skylights and other natural lighting options.
Many homeowners will try to re-use existing skylights during a re-roof installation to try and save costs. We typically discourage this, because the reuse of a skylight inevitably leads to costly repairs in the long term. Replacing skylights at the time of a roof installation is far more cost effective and provides you with true peace of mind.
VELUX® offers many new options when replacing a skylight. Built-in blinds, remote operation for venting, and automatic closure when rain is detected are a few of the attractive features of modern day skylights. Improvements in glass, construction technology, and insulation have dramatically reduced energy loss creating another attractive quality.
Different preferences is what makes us unique. Some property owners may not enjoy the skylights in their current building. A skylight in the bedroom was once considered a luxury, while sleeping is often considered a luxury as well. The combination can prove difficult. For reasons like this Empire Roofing & More also offers the ability to remove a skylight entirely. So, whether you seek more light, more control over light or less light, give us a call.
