A skylight is a great way to let more natural light in your home. However, picking the right time to get one is important because you will have a big hole on your roof until installation is complete. Our team of roof replacement experts say that summer is the ideal time to go ahead with your skylight project because of the following reasons.
Summer Has Fewer Rains
The biggest reason why you’d want to get skylights during summer is that you get the least amount of rain during this time of the year. There is still a chance that it rains when the project is going on, but that is more likely to happen during spring and fall, while winter is outright too risky to do any form of window work, especially a skylight.
Summer Is Less Humid
There are some cases when a humid environment could cause certain sealants or adhesives to set slower. This is a common problem in spring or fall so installing windows at those times of the year can take longer. Roof repair experts say that the low humidity in summer tends to cut down installation times by hours or, in larger-scale installations, even a day or two.
Summer Is Less Booked
Spring and Fall season marks the time when homeowners are making preparations after and before the Winter season. As a result, most contractors tend to have fully booked schedules and securing a slot can take longer (if it’s even possible). Summer has fewer bookings so you get more options when it comes to scheduling the project.
Summer Is More Rewarding
A skylight works best at allowing natural light into your home and what better way to see your skylight perform to its fullest than at the sunniest time of the year? Experts on window and roof types say that working under the brightest season also helps you make adjustments to your skylight in case you think the window is too small or too big to allow just the right amount of sunlight into your home.
