If you are looking to expand your attic and transform it into a useable room, then adding a skylight is a fantastic way to flood the room with natural light without reducing the structural integrity of your roof. That is not the only benefit though, adding a skylight is able to transform your home in a number of ways:
Boost your mood
Flooding your room with sunlight not only helps to brighten it, but it can also help to increase your mood. Natural sunlight ensures your body receives important vitamins, such as Vitamin D, which helps to release serotonin and increase your happiness.
Establish a sleeping pattern
A skylight can help you to regulate your sleeping pattern. An artificially illuminated room keeps you detached from the outside world, making it harder for your body to fall asleep or wake up in a natural manner. As night arrives, our bodies release melatonin, which helps us to fall asleep, and natural light ensures our body is able to regulate this more efficiently.
Increase property value
A skylight doesn’t just help to improve your mood and sleep, but it can also increase your property’s value. Turning your attic into another bedroom or a home office can significantly increase your resale price and make your home more appealing.
A skylight will also help you to increase the airflow through your attic and your roof, meaning stale air is able to be carried outside, and fresh, clean air can flow in.
A skylight is a fantastic addition to any home and gives your property a new lease of life. If you are looking to install a skylight, or need to repair, or replace your roof, get in touch with our experienced team today.
