Skylights and SUN TUNNELS™ are great solutions to adding natural light to almost any room, and they offer the added benefit of reducing your utility costs. The skylights we install come in a variety of glazes, and we offer blackout, translucent and venetian blinds.
Too much heat loss into the attic can also lead to greater problems, such as moisture in the attic that can damage the insulation and cause mould growth. It can also lead to increased ice formation on the roof edge which can lead to ice dams, a dangerous condition that could cause personal injury.
We at T. Simpson Roofing are up-to-date on current building codes and know the amount of insulation your attic needs to maintain heat within your home and dry conditions in your attic. Call us now and we’ll help make your home warmer, more efficient and safer.
Skylights traditionally have received poor reviews due to leakage. The reason for the leakage is often not because of poor-quality skylights, but because the installers aren’t trained in proper installation. If the skylight itself leaks, it is often because the unit was not replaced when the rest of the roof was replaced.
Skylights do not last forever, so if an existing skylight has had many years of use, it’s a good idea to have it replaced when a new roof is installed.
