A skylight is a beautiful and functional addition to any home. Skylights add natural light, making them ideal for small or dark rooms such as bathrooms and hallways. The extra light and outside view will open up the space, making it feel larger. If you’re concerned with the aesthetic impact of a skylight on your roof, add skylights to areas of your home that face away from the street. This will preserve your home’s curb appeal and the appearance of the original roof from the front of your home. While skylights can be installed nearly anywhere on a conventionally-framed roof, if you have a truss roof you should install skylights only where they will fit between trusses. Cutting trusses can affect the load on the remaining structure and weaken your roof.
If you’re thinking about installing a skylight in your home, contact Roof Solutions at(301) 358-2688 to find out how we can help your project along. Our expert roofers offer skylight installation throughout Bethesda. You can get more details by clicking on our website.

A leaky roof allows water to enter your home every time it rains. Water damage affects many aspects of your home, ranging from cosmetic damage to creating a health hazard. If you’re experiencing a leaky roof or gutters, contact a professional for repair or replacement to protect your home from further damage.
Areas of your home that have been affected by water may no longer be safe. Wet flooring, walls, and ceilings are less stable and cannot handle the weight they are required to bear. Water that collects around or under your roof weakens the shingles, making them more susceptible to damage from the wind and weather. Water damage can result in crumbling or collapse of building materials, causing injury and blocking access to portions of your home.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
Standing water allowed to collect in your home from roof or gutter problems is an open invitation for bacteria, viruses, and mold. Mold spores are frequently responsible for poor indoor air quality in homes. Inhalation of spores causes allergic reactions, asthma attacks, congestion, and infection of the respiratory system. Mold can also cause headaches, dizziness, and trouble sleeping that may affect your ability to concentrate on tasks or remember information. Inhaling other bacteria, viruses, or parasites may result in infections that can become life-threatening in children, the elderly, or those with existing illnesses.
When water encounters electrical wiring in your home, it can cause trouble. Electrical systems may short out and stop working, which can affect your ability to cook, see, or ventilate your home. Electrical wiring that has suffered from water damage also poses a potential fire risk in your home, threatening your belongings and your safety.
Water damage doesn’t need to be a risk your family’s safety. If your roof or gutter system is leaking, Roof Solutions of Bethesda provides fast, effective repairs or replacement so your home remains safe and dry. Please call us today at (301) 358-2688 or click on our website to contact an experienced roofer for more information.

A skylight turns your roof into a window to the world, adding light and aesthetics to any room. Skylights increase the value of your home and are an excellent investment that can be enjoyed all year long. Roof Solutions of Bethesda is pleased to offer assistance with your skylight installation project from initial design to putting the final touches on your new addition.
The improved lighting that comes with your skylight also reduces your energy bills. Indoor lighting takes up a significant portion of any home’s electricity usage, and natural light is an excellent and environmentally-sound way to reduce this expense. Using sunlight rather than electricity to light your rooms offers savings that you can enjoy all year long. Your skylight will provide natural, cost-free lighting that is adequate for everyday usage even on cloudy days or when the sun is not directly overhead. Today, there are a variety of skylight glazing and glass options that also block incident UV rays to reduce heat gain in your home. This allows you to install skylights without increasing the need for additional cooling to offset the added sunlight to maximize your energy savings.
Improved Lighting and Indoor Aesthetics
A skylight automatically adds natural light to any room. Natural light has qualities that manmade lights cannot replicate, and many colors, finishes, and fabrics look better in the softer tones of sunlight. Furthermore, increased lighting makes any room appear larger. This can be particularly advantageous when you add a skylight in a bathroom or over a hallway. These areas will automatically feel more spacious and comfortable. Natural light has also been shown to improve eyesight and even mood. By installing skylights, you are creating a healthier indoor environment for your entire family.
Are you interested in adding skylights to your Maryland home? Call Roof Solutions today at (301) 358-2688 to get started! We also offer a full range of gutter and roofing services, including roof replacement and repair. Check us out on the web to learn more!
