1. Plan carefully.

Unfortunately, you cannot simply install skylights anywhere you want. Its placement is mainly determined by where your rafters are. This also affects the size of the skylight you’re allowed to get for your Clearwater roofing. It helps to consult a professional like Arry’s Roofing Services. We know roofs and we can determine the proper placement of your skylights.

2. Go for quality.

Water tightness, sound reduction, load capability, wind resistance, and energy efficiency are some of your other considerations. To maximize on durability fully, you have to get skylights with these characteristics as a minimum. We carry VELUX skylights as a standard. Fully customizable, this brand is known for reliability and feature-packed options.

3. Follow the sun but be prepared.

Skylights are most effective when they follow the sun track. This is the path of the sun above your home — it matters if you want to get the best use out of your skylights. On the other hand, make sure that the furnishings in sky lit rooms stay protected from exposure to the sun’s rays. We can help you through our options for UV protection.

4. Go large.

Much of the costs for putting a skylight onto your St. Petersburg roofing are due to the installation. You don’t want to be straddled with a skylight that’s too small for your needs.
