Skylights are windows installed in roofs that invite beautiful natural light to stream into the home. Skylights imbue sophistication and beauty to any living space, and provide homeowners “green” lighting and solar heating. Enjoy a spectacular viewing of brilliant clouds, lightning flashes and watch the stars and moon move across the sky on a clear night from your own private viewing arena.
Skylights offer a plethora of shapes and sizes to enlighten and delight residents and visitors. A skylight system may be a single window, or a series of windows in spectacular patterns, shapes and designs. While skylights are beautiful window additions for any home, the advantages and disadvantages should be explored before including skylights in new home construction or home-improvement projects.
The key to avoiding the weaknesses of skylights is selecting features and options wisely. Today’s high-tech skylights come with motorized open and close features, which provides carefree ventilation. When the temperature heats up during the summer months in Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland, ventilation through the roof allows rising heat to naturally escape.
Windows treatments and specialty glass solve the issues of heat gain during the summer, heat loss during the winter, UV light damage, safety issues and dust accumulation.
Did a great job installing two new windows. Cleaned up so well that we could not tell they were even in the house. Excellent workmanship. George Altiery - Homeowner
We have used Exterior Medics for more than one project and have found them to be extremely professional and thorough in their diagnosis of what the home problem is and in the fixing of the problem. Their staff are helpful and knowledgeable. Nancy & Doug Todd - Homeowners
They were great to work with and they are very professional. They did what they said they were going to do, in the time they said they would do it. I had no concerns at all. I would highly recommend them and use them again. Adam F. - Homeowner
