Mike Chance of Velux has been a champion of daylighting for years. Velux has impacted the idea of daylighting and brought lighting into our homes and buildings from the fifth wall. “The fifth wall is the undecorated wall which is really the ceiling.” Bringing in light from above is the absolute best way to daylight a home or building.
While people often worry about putting a hole in the roof, it’s really no different than the other holes in roofs – chimney, pipes and flues. When that “hole in the roof” brings in daylight up to 80% better than a windowv on a wall, it’s a solution for better daylighting. With Velux Skylights flashing systems, their skylights are warrantied not to leak for 10 years.
People often are more concerned about the appearance of the house rather than the health and performance of it.
Daylighting can address all three!
