Skylights are functional roof windows that brighten the darkest areas of your home and enhance ventilation. In winter, they provide solar heating. The high-quality skylights of today have come a long way, especially those designed and manufactured by industry leader Velux.
Skylights installed by Franzoso are glazed, with channeling and factory flashing kits that virtually eliminate leaking and roof water damage. Just like windows, skylights are rated for thermal efficiency.
Like skylights, sun tunnels let in natural light, but at a fraction of the cost. Light can move through the entire length of a sun tunnel without reducing its brightness. Alternate names for sun tunnels are solar tubes and tubular skylights.
Skylights come in a variety of shapes, sizes and types. They can be powered by the sun to open and close automatically (with the aid of a small battery), or they can be manually operated, which is a more cost-effective way to add natural light and fresh to spaces like kitchens and bathrooms. Solar-powered skylights are eligible for federal tax credits that can substantially reduce their cost.
Fixed skylights (that don’t open and close) are a popular choice to visually enhance hallways and other narrow, darker areas of the home. Sun tunnels are the easiest product to install because of the flexible configuration of the material used. They are the fastest, most economical way to add natural light to your home.
In Westchester and Putnam Counties, there’s no better place to find top-quality, professionally-installed skylights and sun tunnels than Franzoso Contracting.
