By Nachshon Steif - Residential Products Specialist

Do you feel confined to your four walls? Natural light is a key factor in creating a peaceful, uplifting atmosphere.
Let us explore ways to brighten up your indoor and outdoor living spaces!

Atrium Skylight

Polycarbonate atrium skylights can be an excellent way to bring natural light into your home. Installing them in the central part of your home can create a cosy and inviting setting. The polycarbonate roof panels you choose should be well insulated to protect against heat loss in winter. SUNPAL multiwall panel system is a highly recommended option, as it incorporates natural light, thermal insulation, and structural strength into skylights.
EZ Glaze glass-like polycarbonate roofing is also a popular DIY glazing solution.
If you want to add colour to your atrium or inner spaces, plants are an excellent option. Potted plants love daylight – the plants will benefit from your DIY skylight and will bring life to the space.

Overhang Roof Extension

An extension roof, also known as an overhang, is a popular type of roofing that extends beyond the exterior wall of a building. In warm climates, the additional coverage will provide shade and protection, shelter from the elements, and enhance your outdoor experience. When installed above porches or decks, a SUNGLAZE roof extension gives you the extra space you need. This will increase your home’s value and maximize your outdoor enjoyment.

Extension roof structures have many benefits, including:

• Extra space – A daylight extension roof structure can provide more living space. This can be used for anything from a storage area to a play space for your children.
• All-day comfort – Enjoy natural light while being protected from the elements.

Polycarbonate sheets and panel systems make daylight roofing options available to homeowners. They provide excellent protection from the elements with a stylish and modern look. Consider the purpose of the extension, the amount of natural light you want to bring in, and the climate in your area. Invest in high-quality materials and ensure they’re installed by a professional for optimal results.
