Skylights are a wonderful way to bring more natural light and warmth into your home while saving on energy costs.

For those viewers who'd rather look at pictures than read a lot of text, this blog is for you! One particular Roofing Company customer took skylights and creativity to a whole other level. Oh, and I should mention, there is a fountain in the middle of the home right under the newly installed Skylights.
