Is there anything worse than opening your skylight, then forgetting to close it during a downpour? Modern skylights can be equipped with moisture sensors which detect rainfall and close automatically. This is ideal if you’re often out of the house, you have a lot of skylights or you’re especially forgetful.
If you often leave your skylight open during storms, you’ll risk damage to furniture and carpets, and increase the chance of mould and damp forming around your home. Choose an auto-closing skylight to eliminate these risks.
Before you invest in a new skylight, you should fully consider all the features that are available to you. Stay safe by choosing UV-blocking glass, keep your home warmer with double-glazing and protect your family from the elements with remote control operation and automatic closing.
If you’re not sure which features are best for you, contact a roofing contractor at Roof Tek Roofing for advice before installation. They’ll be able to help you make the best choice for your home.
