in Charlotte, NC
Homeowners and business owners who want to flood their properties with natural light often install oversized windows. However, there’s another solution that has the potential to allow even greater amounts of light inside while saving you money on energy bills and reducing your carbon footprint.
Skylights are an excellent option for bringing in sunlight and giving your Charlotte property a more spacious feel. Since 1974, Keyway Construction & Roofing has been installing premium roofing, skylights, windows, and siding. Our talented team does it all!
Benefits of Installing a Skylight
Fixed and ventilating skylights offer multiple advantages to homeowners and business owners, including:
- Natural light and solar heating: Natural light improves your mood and can even help with workplace performance. It’s also been shown to have positive health benefits.
- Fresh air and improved ventilation: Ventilating skylights help with cross-ventilation in stuffy rooms — freshening the air and cooling down spaces without lowering the AC setting.
- Energy cost savings: Sunlight passing through glass warms interior spaces by carrying heat energy into the area below. It also reduces dependence on electrical light sources.
- Aesthetics: Skylights provide a beautiful window to the sky above and can completely transform a room’s atmosphere.
Professional Skylight Installation in Charlotte
Many factors determine successful skylight installation, including roof pitch, interior light shaft depth and shape, and the weather.
It’s a labor-intensive project that involves cutting into a house’s or building’s roof to frame, insulate, and install the skylights, as well as caulking, taping, and sealing to prevent leaks.
Hiring a professional to install your home’s or business’s skylight ensures:
- You choose the right customization options, including framing material, shape, and size for your needs.
- The job’s done right the first time.

Frequently Asked Questions About Skylights
What is the difference between a ventilating and a fixed skylight?
Both types add light to a room, but fixed skylights are sealed tight, do not open, and are used for light or visibility. Vented skylights open to allow fresh air into the space where they’re installed.
Is it better to install a window or a skylight?
It depends. Both windows and skylights bring in natural light and can transform interior spaces from dark and dreary to bright and cheery.
Your best bet is to talk with a professional skylight installer who can evaluate your roof’s slope, the sun’s position, and the interior space to determine the best solution.
Where is the best place to install a skylight?
The top rooms where people install skylights include:
North-facing skylights give you the most consistent amount of natural light throughout the day, and eastern-facing ones are best for morning light.
You want to avoid putting skylights anywhere where trees or other obstructions will limit how much light makes its way into your property.
