At Roofs by Welsh, not only are we experts in roofing, but we also install skylights!

Skylights provide double the daylight penetration into a room compared to a normal wall-window and provide privacy. With the installation of skylights, the need for artificial lighting is greatly diminished, ultimately saving you money on electricity!

Some of the benefits of skylights include:

Adding natural light (and solar heating) to your spaces

Incorporating skylights into both our homes and workplaces is a seamless way to allow exposure to natural light promoting the wellbeing of those who live and work in those spaces. Instead of timing outdoor activities to happen in the late morning or mid-day, which can be tricky due to work schedules, weather, or other conflicts, you can let the natural light come to you straight from the source through a skylight, just like nature intended.

Letting in fresh air and better ventilation

Skylights not only brighten our living and workspaces, but also open to create natural air flow inside. They provide natural ventilation helping clear out stale, polluted air that stagnates at the ceiling.

Saving on energy costs (electric and heating)

Skylights provide more savings when it comes to heating and cooling your home, but a properly installed skylight can also save you money on your lighting bill as well by reducing electricity and minimizing how many light bulbs you buy. You may also be eligible for a tax credit up to $500 with the installation of a new skylight.

Increased resale value of your home

 When selling your home, buyers will appreciate the extra light and potential energy savings of skylights.  Research shows that natural light increases health benefits, boosts moods and productivity, and draws in buyers.

Stunning sky views

A window above your bed allows you to gaze at the stars or passing clouds, and one above a dining room could have you eating beneath the trees. By adding glass to a low ceiling, you can make it feel higher, seeing the sky through a high ceiling gives it the illusion of being part of an outdoor space.

We work with roofs of all shapes and sizes, so If you’re interested in getting a skylight installed, please get in touch!
