Considering installing a skylight?
Skylights can be a great idea for homeowners here in Whatcom County.
Obviously, the big benefit of these windows is you can get additional natural light into your house. This is a great tactic for any room that doesn’t have an existing window or an outside wall.
And because this window is on your ceiling, most people won’t install any shades or blinds, so the natural light will be available all day and even on some nights.
What About Water or Heat Leaks?
A top-quality, properly installed skylight is not going to fog up. It will be energy-efficient so it won’t lose heat in the winter and it won’t leak.
The number one key to successfully putting one of these windows in your home is to make sure that your installer has previous experience doing it.
An experienced Bellingham WA skylight installer will get yours put in the right way. The right installation is what guarantees an energy-efficient and leak-proof fit for the life of the window.
A homeowner or inexperienced handyman may not have the exact knowledge and job experience necessary to put your window in perfectly. You really want it installed perfectly.
A Suggestion From a Pro
Don’t skimp in quality on either your window or your installer.
The price difference between a really good window and an average one isn’t really that much. Just get the better one.
And then don’t try to install it yourself either.
Putting in a skylight is not the toughest home remodeling project. But anyone who has done it knows that it isn’t simple either. Think about it — you are going to be cutting a big hole in your roof. Don’t be overconfident that you can do it.
Just hire a professional Bellingham skylight contractor to do it. You will be happy you did.
One More Added Benefit
Skylights are popular with most home buyers. There will be a day in your future when you put your house up for sale. Prospective buyers will see this home improvement project as a positive feature of your home.
