Skylight Options

At AtticPlus, we stock Velux and Falcro branded roof windows and skylights. These are the market leaders in the skylight industry and continue to improve and enhance the technology used to ensure they are always the best in the game.

Pros of Skylights

  • Creates light in dark spaces.
  • Brings in natural light which increases your mood and affects your health positively.
  • Saves money on your energy bills due to fewer lights being turned on.
  • Ventilation.
  • Increases the sale value of a home.
  • Can be an architectural or interior design feature of a home.
  • Warranty – AtticPlus gives a 3-year installation warranty on all our work.

Cons of Skylights

  • Installation – A skylight itself takes 2-3 hours, or a skylight and shaft can take up to a day to install.
  • During installation, direct roof access is required.
  • There is potential for the room temperature to be compromised by breaking the integrity of insulation against external conditions.

Illume The Skylight Alternative

At AtticPlus we also offer and install Illume – The Skylight Alternative.

  • The Illume creates harmony between internal and external lighting using Ambient Light Technology (A.L.T).
  • The system comes to life and adjusts itself as the sun makes its way across the sky using energy to create an incredibly natural-looking light inside your home.
  • Unlike traditional skylights, you don’t require direct roof access to install an Illume.
  • You can place the light panel in any internal space where additional daytime lighting is of benefit.
  • They can be installed in any room and on any floor of a residential, commercial or public building.
