Advantages & Benefits

It boosts your mood
When a house is bathed in a lot of natural lights, it tends to give it an airier feeling, and this has the effect of enhancing one’s mood. Natural light also makes the air smell fresher as well, which also contributes to this. The overall effect of having a good mood include being generally more productive, which is something that is worth the money that you spend on increasing natural light in the home.

It reduces the chances of illness
Most people are apprehensive about installing devices such as skylights on account of the fact that it seems too needlessly expensive.  One of the ways in which you can recoup the cost of doing this is by cutting down on the cost of healthcare. When you have a lot of natural light in the house, you are likely to get rid of pathogens such as spores and molds. This in turn reduces the risk of respiratory diseases, some of which are often very difficult to treat and can eat into your finances especially in old age.

Having sunlight streaming into the house also provides all the members of the house with vitamin D, which reduces the risk of diseases such as rickets and beriberi.

The visual appeal
If you are the kind of person who likes making their home look good, increasing the amount of natural light in it is something that you should always try to capitalize on. There are several beneficial effects of doing this. For one, natural light makes colors pop more, so you can make your house look more appealing in this manner. In addition to that, you are also likely to make the home feel a lot more spacious this way as well.

As you can see, there are many viable reasons why you should invest in making your house have a lot more light in it. The benefits of doing this have positive economic and social implications, which make them more than worth it in the long run. Therefore, you should consider doing things such as installing skylights or even bugger windows on you home in order to take advantage of this. If you are not keen on spending a lot on this, simply making sure that you shop around for the right contractors and materials will help you cut down on costs.

Why should the installer use the flashing kit from PL skylight when he installs the skylight?
Flashing is an integral component of the skylight. It is designed by manufacturer to seal and shed water. Flashing membranes are particularly critical in eliminating potential damage of ice damming and water buildup in places with significant accumulation of snow. Sealants should never be relied on to maintain a seal. Water draining down the roof surface is intercepted by the flashing at the head of the skylight (head flashing) and flows down along the step flashing on the sides of the skylight. The head flashing laps over the step flashing on the sides of the skylight and projects beyond the latter, as in the chimney detail. For additional water protection, a self-sealing rubberized asphalt sheet is used as an underlay around the skylight. Step flashing is interwoven with the shingles and fastened to the skylight frame only.

Step flashing and counter flashing each allow differential movement between the skylight and roof. In cold weather, snow melting from heat loss around the skylight drains down and can refreeze downstream, causing ice damming. Water subsequently builds up behind the ice dam, ultimately penetrating below the shingles. A rubberized asphalt sheet prevents water leakage resulting from this condition. Ice damming can be minimized by reducing heat loss from the roof and skylight wall. Rigid insulation, with a minimum thermal resistance equivalent to that in the exterior walls of the building, should be provided. If the skylight walls are inclined, insulation with a thermal resistance equivalent to the roof should be considered. This reduces the amount of snow melt that could cause ice damming.
