5 Advantages of Installing Skylights

Installing skylights is a substantial investment for any homeowner. Just like getting your roof replaced or choosing new gutters and downspouts, the process requires several decisions. The most important thing is to determine the purpose of your skylights. Fortunately, there is an array of advantages that you can get when you decide to install this light-transmitting structure on your roof. A premier residential roofing company walks you through them.

1. Daylighting: One of the most popular functions of skylights is increased daylighting inside your living space. This is particularly beneficial for dim or gloomy rooms around your home. Sometimes, homeowners add them to areas with high ceilings.

2. Solar heat: Many people think that solar heat gain is a drawback when it comes to skylights. Fortunately, manufacturers have developed glazing technologies for heat control. This includes heat-absorbing tints and low-emissivity (low-E) coatings applied to glass by roof repair specialists.

3. Ventilation: Like traditional windows, skylights help in improving ventilation inside your home. Some types can be cranked open to let cool, fresh air inside. You can cool down an often stuffy room with a skylight.

4. Energy savings: Since a skylight can adequately heat up a room, your need for a heating system is significantly reduced. This leads to reduced energy consumption, which is also good for nature, and more energy savings.

5. Outdoor views: Installing a skylight easily boosts the curb appeal of your home, which in the future, can increase your property resale value. But that is not all. When you look up, your skylight can make a room feel bigger and help stretch your home onto the outdoor space that is well beyond your reach. This creates a beautiful and relaxing view at nighttime, making your roof replacement and skylight addition all worth it.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
