If you appreciate the warmth and cheer of natural sunlight in your home, a qualified Orange County roofing company can help provide that benefit. This professional team will do so by installing a skylight on your roof. As its name implies, a skylight invites beautiful natural sunlight into your residence. For anyone seeking happier living spaces, this option clearly is the right move. Bright, cheerful sunlight is a proven mood-elevator. Without stepping outdoors or even flicking a switch, you can enjoy the mood-enhancing light of our nearest star, easily and comfortably. There are, however, other benefits derived from skylight illumination.
The first of these benefits is the obvious one -- lower electric bills. Yes, with the sun supplying abundant illumination, the need for electric power is proportionately reduced. So is the need to get up from a comfortable position to flick on the nearest lamp. With solar illumination shining throughout your living space, you can stay put. And let’s not forget about all that wonderful fresh air flowing into your home, along with the sunshine. An open skylight installed by an Orange County roofer is a great way to improve ventilation.
Bear in mind that, depending on your geographical location, the installation of a skylight also may entitle you to certain energy-related tax savings. Clearly, residents of Orange County should investigate available tax-saving programs associated with such an installation. This could be great news for people living in a sunny locale such as San Clemente. If things seem to work out in your favor, ask a qualified San Clemente roofer about available skylight options.

We've had nothing but issues with our skylights. They are about 15 years old now and have leaked twice in that time. We've had two different roofing companies out to stop the leaks and I'm worried that we're in for trouble this year.
You're not alone. Issues with skylights are not a new problem. 15-20 years ago they were extremely popular and materials and installation procedures were not up to today's standards. Sometimes an updated replacement unit is needed. Other times repairs are possible. We'd be happy to send an expert out to take a look. Just contact us at the number at the bottom of the screen.
We live in Orange County by the coast in San Clemente. A house 5 doors down has skylights that are viewable from the street. They look huge, more like a big window which is very appealing to our family. Is there issues with too much light going through?
Great question Tanya! Yes there could be an issue with that depending on what room its over, and or the brand and type of skylight that is used. You see there are different types of treated glass that can be used that are able to reduce the UV a great deal. There's also the option of filtering it. Really there are so many options that we should talk about this further and figure out exactly what you're looking for. We've installed these for years and know the ins and outs. Give us a call today and we'll be happy to give you a free quote!
You mentioned tax credits in the article. I so appreciate that you did! I checked into this and found out that the Inflation Reduction Act that was passed in August 2022 extended the 30% tax credit until 2032. The skylights I'm looking at are solar-powered and have solar shades as well. Pretty cool that I'll be getting a 30% tax credit to boot. Thanks for the tip!
Hi Brent! So glad that our tip about the tax credits worked out for you with regards to skylights. We hope that all the other benefits you're enjoying as well!
Happy Holidays from all of us at Luke Roofing!
