Questions and Answers 

Your Questions Answered

Velux windows are windows that are installed on the roof of a building, typically on a sloped roof. They are designed to allow natural light to enter the building and provide ventilation. Velux windows are made of various materials, including wood, aluminium, and PVC.

Pyramid skylights are a type of skylight that is shaped like a pyramid. They are typically made of glass or acrylic and are used to bring natural light into a building. Pyramid skylights are often used in commercial and industrial buildings, as well as in residential buildings.

PVC lanterns are a type of skylight made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride). They are typically used to bring natural light into a building and are often used in residential and commercial buildings. PVC lanterns are often preferred over other types of skylights because they are relatively inexpensive compared to other types of skylights.

There are a few factors to consider when choosing a skylight:

  • Size: The skylight should be appropriate for the size and layout of the room in which it will be installed.
  • Material: Skylights can be made of various materials, including glass, acrylic, and PVC. Each material has its benefits and drawbacks, so consider which will best fit your needs.
  • Glazing: Skylights can have single, double, or triple glazing. Single glazing is the least efficient, while triple glazing is the most efficient.
  • Style: Skylights come in various styles, including pyramid, dome, and flat. Choose a style that will complement the architecture of your building.
  • Energy efficiency: Look for skylights that are Energy Star rated, as these are more energy efficient and can help to reduce your energy bills.
  • Ventilation: Consider whether you want a skylight that can be opened for ventilation. Adequate ventilation can be especially useful in bathrooms and kitchens.

A skylight installation by SNR Roofing can positively affect your energy rating!

The type of skylight you choose can impact your energy rating. Energy Star rated skylights are more energy efficient and can reduce your energy bills, which may positively affect your energy rating.

The location of the skylight can also affect your energy rating. If the skylight is installed in a location that allows maximum sunlight exposure, it can reduce energy usage by providing natural light and heat. On the other hand, if the skylight is installed in a location prone to overheating, it may negatively affect your energy rating by causing your cooling system to work harder.

Finally, the quality of the installation can also impact your energy rating.

SNR Roofing ensures your skylight is adequately installed, preventing air leaks which would negatively impact the energy efficiency of your building. A professional installation by SNR Roofing will result in a properly sealed skylight, which can help to improve your energy rating.

There are several benefits to having a skylight installed:

  • Natural light: Skylights allow natural light to enter a building, improving the overall ambience of a room and reducing the need for artificial light. This can save energy and reduce your energy bills.
  • Ventilation: Some skylights can be opened to allow for ventilation, which can help to improve air quality and reduce the buildup of moisture and odours.
  • Increased value: Skylights can add value to a building by increasing its appeal and making it more desirable to potential buyers or renters.
  • Aesthetic appeal: Skylights can add a decorative element to a building and highlight certain features or areas.
  • Reduced energy usage: By providing natural light and heat, skylights can help reduce the need for artificial light and heating, saving energy and reducing energy bills.
  • Improved health: Natural light has been shown to have numerous health benefits, including improved mood and sleep patterns.
  • Reduced environmental impact: By reducing the need for artificial light and heating, skylights can help reduce a building’s carbon footprint and environmental impact.

The cost of installing a skylight can vary widely depending on many factors, including the size and type of skylight, the installation’s complexity, and the building’s location.

Previous estimates show the cost of installing a small, standard skylight can range from around £500 to £1,000, while the cost of installing a large, custom skylight can range from around £1,500 to £3,000 or more.

It is also a good idea to budget for any additional costs that may arise, such as the cost of any necessary structural modifications or the cost of hiring an electrician to wire the skylight for electric operation.

In most cases, you will not need planning permission to install a skylight in North Devon. However, there are a few circumstances in which you may need to get permission:

  • If you live in a listed building: Listed buildings are protected by law, and any alterations, including the installation of a skylight, must be approved by the local planning authority.
  • If your building is in a conservation area: Conservation areas are designated by the local planning authority and are intended to protect the character and appearance of the area. If your building is in a conservation area, you may need permission to install a skylight.
  • If your building is a flat: If you live in a flat, you may need permission from the owner or the management company before installing a skylight.
  • It is always a good idea to check with your local planning authority to determine whether you need to get permission to install a skylight. They will be able to provide you with specific information about the requirements in your area.

The life expectancy of a skylight can vary widely depending on several factors, including the material, the quality of the installation, and the building’s location.

Skylights made of high-quality materials, such as tempered glass or acrylic, and installed by SNR Roofing should have a longer lifespan than those made of lower-quality materials or installed improperly.

On average, a skylight can last anywhere from 20 to 50 years or more. However, it is important to keep in mind that skylights will eventually need to be replaced, and it is a good idea to budget for this expense in the long term.

It is also a good idea to regularly maintain your skylight by cleaning the glass, checking

the seals, and making any necessary repairs to ensure that it lasts as long as possible.
