Flat Roof Skylights
Flat Roof Skylights
by Universal Roofs
The process of adding value and quality to your home or office takes many forms. Simple renovation practices like painting, furniture change, floor, bathroom, and door renovations will transform your home for the better. In some cases, you might even consider replacing your home’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC). However, the ultimate element with the potential of totally transforming your home’s aesthetics and value is a skylight.
Skylights are roofing systems that do more than just cover the top of your home. They bring natural light into your home, ensure manual or automatic ventilation of the inner atmosphere, provide heat during winter, and give you a superb view of the skies. If installed properly, skylights will show unreal durability and resistance against storms, hails, and other extreme weather conditions too.
The common models of skylights used to be for elevated roof designs, but thanks to innovations and advancements in tech, we now have skylights for flat or low-pitch roofs. If your home happens to have a flat roof, you can now retrofit it with a skylight, specifically the VELUX Flat Roof Skylight. It is a skylight model that will meet the growing demands of the market, and as you will soon come to learn, it is unique.
Why you should get a Flat Roof Skylight
If you have a flat-roofed home, then it is a no-brainer to go for a flat roof skylight since other models will not fit the roof type. But that isn’t the only reason why you should go for a flat roof skylight.
Clear, panoramic views
There are two types of flat roof skylight covers: the curved flat roof skylight cover and the flat roof exit skylight cover. Depending on your choice, you either get a CurveTech glass or a polycarbonate dome. The CurveTech glass disperses rainwater off its surface, thanks to its curved, edge-to-edge design. The polycarbonate dome is also designed to clean rainwater off the skylight. In both cases, you get to enjoy clear, panoramic views of the skies with no water spots or droplets ruining the experience.
These skylights are strong, durable, and built to be leak-resistant. If they are properly installed, you will never have to deal with leaks, courtesy of their structural integrity.
Little electrical work requirements
The simple design of flat roof skylights makes them quite easy to install for professionals. They do not require excessive wiring, bulbs, or lighting posts for installation, and this will go a long way in reducing their overall installation costs.
Types of Flat Roof Skylight
CXP- Flat Roof Exit Skylight
This is a manually operated flat roof skylight. It allows the flow of fresh air into the home and provides access to the roof for repair, maintenance, or as an egress exit. It also offers great skyline views and helps light up the home with sun rays. It is suitable for 0° – 15° roof pitch and has a 60° opening angle for total roof access.
The skylight material for this type is available in two forms: Polycarbonate and Insulated PVC frame. The Polycarbonate material is durable and highly resistant to damage by extreme weather conditions like hail, storms, and ice pellets. On the other hand, the Insulated PVC frame has a double-paned glass with low energy that maintains the temperature of the inner environment by ensuring that heat does not escape.
It is also available in 3 sizes for you to choose from.
CFP- Fixed Flat Roof Skylight
This type of skylight is made up of Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMM) or methacrylate for short. It is a great option to light up the home because it collects and distributes light evenly. Plus, its design (a dome and a base) makes it simple to install and operate. It consumes less electricity and is quite affordable to even begin with. It is stylish and resistant to leaks and severe weather conditions.
CVP- Flat Roof Manual Venting Skylight
Here, we have a skylight with a polycarbonate cover, which gives it impressive insulation to external noise. It comes with a double-glazed unit and is designed to suit curb installations. This flat roof skylight model doesn’t run on any automation; rather, it is operated using control rods that come with the packaging. With this skylight in your home, you will enjoy superb distribution of natural light and efficient power saving. Plus, it promises to last up to 20 years without seal failures and 10 years without component damage.
