There are many reasons to add a Solatube skylight to your home – lower energy bills, less impact on the environment, health benefits of natural sunlight, low-cost installation … the list goes on. However, no matter how many benefits a skylight may offer, if the unit is hard to maintain, all of those advantages can quickly turn into a bothersome chore that needs continual attention to keep clean and in good working order.
Fortunately, Solatube was thinking like a consumer when they designed their skylight units, and that means you can enjoy the benefits without adding another entry to your “honey-do” list. Every Solatube skylight comes with a no-leaks guarantee, which means you never have to worry about a leaking seal that can cause water to leak into your roof, your walls, or your rooms. Solatube offers its no-leak guarantee because it’s supremely confident in the way the unit is designed and in its unique flashing designed to be securely mounted on any style roof. That means added peace of mind for you – and it means you don’t have to worry about clambering up on your roof to repair a leaky seal.
The flashing is just one part of the Solatube design advantage. Solatube skylights use a unique dome design that was specifically developed to capture the maximum amount of daylight for clearer, cleaner, brighter light throughout the day, in every area of your home. It’s that unique design that enables Solatube to offer far more light than other types of skylights, even over expanses of up to nine metres (30 feet). Aside from being supremely functional, the design is also highly durable, resisting damage that would cause other skylights to fail. That means when you have a Solatube skylight installed, you can truly “set it and forget it” – thanks to the tube’s super-reflective material, once your unit is installed, it pretty much takes care of itself.
In addition, there’s one more advantage to a Solatube skylight: The unique tubular design isn’t just watertight – it’s insect-proof too, so you don’t have to worry about winged or crawling creatures sneaking in through any tiny gaps or openings – they simply don’t exist. That means you don’t have to worry about insects invading your space, your food or your closets, and you don’t need to worry about wood-eating insects entering your home and setting up shop.
Solatube skylights truly are designed with consumers in mind.
