Common Problems with Skylights
Some common problems we find with skylights include excessive daylight that causes glare and UV damage, overheating and energy loss. We’ve also seen plenty of roof ventilation issues and even the formation of ice dams in the winter.
Usually, these problems can be solved by re-flashing or re-sealing the skylights. But because they are usually quite difficult to access, it’s important to make sure you speak to a professional first.

Advantages of a Skylight
Aside from the obvious natural light benefits, there are many other advantages to having a skylight installed on your property. In the below video, Phil Dalton talks about some of these benefits in relation to Velux windows.
- Energy Saving. Having a skylight installed on your property reduces the need for artificial lighting and can contribute to a significant saving on your energy bills.
- Fresh Air. Increasing fresh air around your property will keep your home comfortable as it eliminates stale air and dust, resulting in a more pleasant place to live, particularly for those sensitive to dust.
- Kerb Appeal. A well-fitted, stylish skylight will increase the kerb appeal of any property. And transforming a stuffy old attic into a light and breezy office or bedroom will add resale value to the house.
- House Health. Many properties contain pockets of stagnant air that can cause all sorts of mould and dirt issues, which can lead to further structural and personal health problems. You can eliminate these issues by increasing air flow with a skylight.
Overall, skylights will bring many advantages to your home. From increased airflow and natural light to improved wellbeing and added resale value, skylights make great additions to your property.
