When an Orange County roofer installs a skylight atop a commercial building, this professional is doing more than suppling increased illumination. Of course, you say, the roofing expert also is providing a great view of the deep blue sky (assuming rain clouds have not gathered). True enough. But the other benefit resulting from the installation of a skylight is a potential increase in business performance. How exactly can this rooftop window make a difference to the bottom line? Well, there are several ways.
First, there’s the mood enhancement principal. When a commercial roofer installs a skylight on a business structure, the admitted sunlight has a positive effect on everyone inside. This is difficult to dispute. Ample research suggests that light from our nearest star generally has a cheering effect on people. The sunlight phenomenon has a special significance for workers. Bathed in solar illumination, staff members are more inclined to feel upbeat and positive. Stimulated in this way, employees are more likely to feel energized. Increased productivity often is the favorable result. Additionally, ample sunshine enhances visibility. This benefit is particularly important in a retail environment, where clearly-seen merchandise is more likely to grab attention.
Who should consider the installation of a skylight? Good candidates are those who own or operate a commercial building in a busy Orange County city, such as Irvine. Simply contact an Irvine commercial roofer (or appropriate professional for your city) to get a detailed overview of benefits and other pertinent information. It very well may be the first step to an unexpected business windfall.

Most of the friends that have that have skylights in their homes seem to have had issues with leaks with them. What's your thoughts on this and can they be avoided?
Yes, we do a lot of repairs on leaking skylights. But this is because of old technology, age and poor installation techniques. There are so many companies doing skylight installations that are not roofers that the level of expertise is just not there. The installations have issues and corners are cut because they have no idea and no desire to make sure your roof is ready for the skylight and installed with the entire system in mind. Call us today, we'd be happy to discuss your specific needs.
Nothing better than a large opening or skylight in a corporate building to make it feel a little less drab. Couldn't agree with your roofing article more on this topic.
Thanks John, Yes I agree as well. Skylights can truly open a room up and give natural light that is therapeutic and changes the entire feel of a home.
