The perfect time to to install a new skylight is when you are getting a new roof. This is a Velux skylight installed during a new roof installation. Skylights can be great for interior spaces that do not get enough natural sunlight. New Roof Plus installs new skylights in many varieties.
Another skylight option are”Solar Tubes”. Solar tubes are designed to reflect the sun light into a small opening but because of the reflective material, a lot of light is condensed into the tube – creating a bright natural light in a space that might otherwise be dark. An expample of placements for solar tubes can be interior bathrooms without windows, laundry rooms, utility rooms, garages and hallways.
Since the installation requires a roof decking penetration, the best time to install a new skylight or solar tube is when you are getting a new roof.
