Our team advises that the best time to install skylights is when homeowners decide to go for re-roofing. That said, skylights can be installed at any time. Our team advises mixing up interior lighting with daylights to come up with a good mix of interior lighting. Our team also recommends incorporating photo-sensor technology. This helps in further conserving energy by sensing when artificial light is not needed.
