Skylights: Get Natural Light Without the Heat

Almost everyone wants to bring more natural daylight into their home, but no Florida homeowner wants more heat. Adding a sun tunnel or skylight can be an energy-efficient and cost-effective option. They are easy to install and won't heat up your home. Triangle Roofing is the local roofing contractor in Volusia, Flagler, and St. Johns Counties you can trust. Our knowledge and experience in skylight installation and sun tunnel replacement will help brighten your dark rooms.


Compared to more traditional skylights, newer types of skylights take up much less space and can be installed quickly. Unlike a domed skylight, they offer a low profile that's flatter on the roof and their structure is tubular. Today's sun tunnels come with marine-grade seals and are energy-efficient. No skylight should leak when it rains and that's why professional installation is so important.


Flashing is the seal that bonds skylights and a roofing system. When the flashing is properly installed and in good condition, it creates a watertight seal between the skylight and your roof. If your skylights aren't properly installed, water in the house can occur. Silicone caulking will only hold off a leaking skylight for so long. Damage to your walls or ceiling can be costly to repair.


One of the benefits of sun tunnels is there is no need to turn lights on in your home on a sunny day. Even on a cloudy day, indoor lighting may not be necessary. Multiple layers of protection in the sun tunnel won't make your home hotter. New skylights may also come with impact glass that won't crack or fade over time. They can withstand the harsh storms we experience in Florida, including hail or flying debris.


Not every roofing company is a specialist in skylights. Triangle Roofing can install brand-new skylights on your current roof or a replacement roof. We also know how to work carefully around existing skylights and sun tunnels so you won't have cracks or leaks.


We use a local skylight company that manufactures its products in the USA. Why not add one while you are doing a roof replacement? If you're interested in repairing, replacing, or installing skylights in your home, give our skilled skylight professionals a call today. Triangle Roofing will go over some options with you.
