Roof with Windows?–Some Convincing Reasons to Put Up a Skylight

By Galliena Gornet Subscribe to RSS | May 28th 2012 | Views:

A window serves as breathing access to your home. It allows breeze to refresh humid rooms and to brighten up dark corners. With a window on your roof, your home will benefit more than it already does.

Roof windows are more commonly known as skylights. Homebuilders install them fixed on the roofing, in contrast with typical windows that often have an opening and closing mechanism. Having a skylight on at least one portion of your roof saves you energy, and if properly installed, can also increase the resale value of your home.


Some homes look dull and uninviting because of large and melancholic roof that look exactly the same in all corners. If a skylight is installed at least on the most visible portion of the roof, you can break off the visual boredom and create a more pleasant focal point. Make sure the design of the skylight matches the roof trim and the overall architecture of your home.

Nourishment for Plants

Homes with big floor area are best designed with an interior patio where ornamental plants can add to the home’s natural look and offset humidity by providing more oxygen. To avoid the hefty task of bringing the plants outside daily to receive sunlight, you can put up a skylight directly above or at least aligned with your interior patio. That way, you create an indoor garden patio that is easier to maintain while also rejuvenating the look of your home.

Energy Conservation

Your home needs both light and heat to make it a comfortable place to stay in. In cold places like New Hampshire, homes need regular heating throughout the year, especially during winter. With a skylight on New Hampshire roofing, homes can save fuel or electricity on their heating systems by getting natural heat from the sun in the day, or keeping dark corners bright with natural lighting, and with consideration for interior design elements like painting and furniture.


Accommodating guests, reading books, or bonding with your family can be more memorable when done in a room where there is a good view of the lawn or garden. Often, this room is called a sunroom, technically because it usually consists of large windows that receive sufficient lighting during the day. Putting skylight on the New Hampshire roofing will make a more relaxing sunroom experience.
