Just like the name suggests flexible skylights are super easy to install. This is not to say that other types are difficult for us to manage, we are just stating the facts. If the room you want to have the skylight installed in is not directly accessible to the roof. Then flexible skylights are the preferred option as they can circumvent attics, lofts used for storage and other objects to get to their preferred location in your house.
In a professional and efficient manner, we can have your flexible skylight discreetly installed exactly where you need it. It is ideal for shorter tunnels and softens light passing through it. The result of this is a room that isn’t too bright but rather maintains a moderate level of lighting. We give you a room that is not too bright with our flexible skylight. It is a quite affordable way of getting natural light into your home. The flexible tube of this particular skylight type helps you navigate around roof obstructions easily and is ideal for a shorter distance. Because of the way it is made, light reflects with less intensity in flexible skylights compared to rigid types.
Here at Universal Roofs, we know all about skylights from sourcing for the material to a perfect finish everything is done smoothly and with utmost efficiency.
With our flexible sun tunnels, we use a foil and wire ducting system similar to the one used for air conditioning. They are easier to fit and cheaper than other types of skylights. Ironically, flexible tubes are mostly preferred even though their tube is not straightforward like those of the rigid type. You can get these flexible tube systems around obstacles in your roof space. The only problem is the reduction in the amount of light when a bend is introduced into the tube. We are all about working around issues like this and you can be assured that we will try all maneuvers to prevent a bend that would affect the light intensity of your room below.
What You Need To Know About Flexible Skylights
A flexible skylight delivers sun rays through a rooftop dome. They deliver the light into the room below via a highly reflective duct that is shaped like a tube. A mounted diffuser disperses the natural light from the ceiling to the room below. Regular skylights require a direct line from the rooftop to the ceiling below. Flexible devices on the other hand are easily manipulated to avoid obstructions and supply the light where needed. And sometimes can deliver up to 40 feet depending on the products.
You can install them in hallways, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and walk-in closets. They not only light up rooms but also help you save on electricity costs. They have a problem similar to regular skylights, the lighting it gives to a room disappears when it is nightfall. Although this can be avoided by installing led light. Thus when there is a lot of sunlight the tube provides natural light, and at night the led light will come on. This provides a seamless supply of sunlight throughout the day and night.
The first thing that might come to your mind is if it is ideal for your roof type. Whether flat or pitched it doesn’t really matter. If you want a flexible skylight then it is our job to fulfill your wish and desires. The one thing that influences skylights the most is the length of the pipe. The obstructions between the roof and the room below determine the length of the tube.
At Universal Roofs, we try to minimize the length of the tube since it affects light deliverance to the room below. Instead of looking at the specifications of a flexible tube, you should choose a professional installer like us to perfect everything from choosing the most suited to your home to making the final designs as beautiful as possible.
