Skylights are often thought of as a cosmetic luxury addition to homes. What many people forget is that skylights are an environmentally friendly addition to the home as well. This is because skylights increase energy efficiency and increase solar heating inside the home. Energy efficiency is improved because skylights significantly reduce the need for interior artificial lighting inside the home.
If you choose O’LYN Roofing to do your roof then you also have the convenient and affordable option of also replacing or installing skylights as well. Call or fill out a form at the bottom of this page for a Free Estimate.
