Natural light offers a wide range of health benefits which is why a number of homeowners are finding ways to incorporate natural lighting within their homes. One of the most popular choices so far are installing skylights onto their residential roofing systems.
Putting up a skylight might sound like a simple and straightforward project. The truth is, there are quite a few considerations you need to take before you install one. Let our roofing experts at Pressure Point Roofing Medford give you a few pointers about this useful little addition.
During one of your routine roof maintenance inspection, take a look at the support beams and rafters that hold up your roof assembly. On most roofs, rafters are spaced about four feet apart but it’s not uncommon to find some systems with more frequent support beams. If your rafters have enough space between them, it may be possible to install a skylight. For roofs with beams less than four feet apart, it would be impossible without having to redo part of the roof assembly.
Choosing a Glazing
Skylights can be installed with either glass or plastic, each with their own types of glazing. Glass is typically more energy-efficient, with low-emissivity coating and a thin layer of insulating gas between the panes. They are also more expensive and can be prone to breakage. On the other hand, plastic offers plenty of versatility at a more affordable cost. Its cons include discoloration and a considerably shorter life span.
A Job for the Pros
Skylight installation can appear simple but it’s best to leave the work to a professional. Anything that involves cutting a hole on your roof can lead to massive problems and even costly roof repair jobs should anything go wrong.
