How Skylights Make the Benefits of Natural Light More Accessible

Exposure to natural daylight—or the lack of it—has an enormous impact on our well-being that we often fail to recognize. The need to be connected with the earth and its beauty is inherent in all of us, but the push for corporate work environments to be economical and industrious has consigned many people to fluorescent-lighted, windowless work spaces. On top of that, most of our needs are can easily be met indoors now: a connection with others, access to food, and even fitness can be a... Next

Exposure to natural daylight—or the lack of it—has an enormous impact on our well-being that we often fail to recognize. The need to be connected with the earth and its beauty is inherent in all of us, but the push for corporate work environments to be economical and industrious has consigned many people to fluorescent-lighted, windowless work spaces. On top of that, most of our needs are can easily be met indoors now: a connection with others, access to food, and even fitness can be attained inside a building.

But the need to spend hours of time each day indoors doesn’t have to mean a lack of access to daylight. Skylights offer that connection to natural light that we all need to function and our best. Home Improvement Leads is here to explain how they help us reap the following benefits:

Productivity and Comfort

Research has proven that daylight environments increase productivity and comfort. A connection to nature and the outside world decreases a feeling of isolation and enhances contentment. Natural light is also easier on the eyes, whereas artificial lighting—especially the type found in many work environments—can cause headaches and eye strain.

Natural light is also essential for a healthy sleep-wake cycle. The sun regulates this cycle, so not having access to it for blocks of hours at a time can throw off our natural rhythm, resulting in poor sleep and ultimately poor health.

Increasingly, psychologists, architects, and business owners are recognizing the importance of daylighting buildings and its positive effect on productivity. Daylighting is an architectural term that refers to designing an indoor area to receive ample sunlight. Skylights and retractable roofs play an important role in designing beautiful daylight buildings that make occupants feel at ease and connected to nature. A retractable roof provides access to the outdoors during nice weather but also stands up to unfriendly weather thanks to its insulated glass and thermally braked profiles that provide heat insulation. Occupants get to experience the peace of being bathed in sunlight even when it’s too cold to enjoy the outdoors. 

Energy Savings 

If you’re using the sun to light a large building during the daylight hours that means you’re not using as much energy to keep light bulbs running. Insulated skylights allow the light to pass through without glare or excessive thermal transfer, so comfort and energy savings are unaffected by these factors. Not every daylighting feature reduces a building’s energy usage, but the right product integrated well can greatly contribute to energy efficiency.

Residential Home Value 

While “man caves” and home theaters may be sought-after features for potential home buyers, they’re just about the only rooms in a home where daylight is unwelcome. Most people are looking for a home lit by natural daylight since it is so much more pleasing to the eye than artificial light. Glass Skylights are the perfect solution for interior rooms and areas like bathrooms where you want natural light without sacrificing privacy. Additionally, retractable pool enclosures can increase the value of your investment by keeping it clean and allowing you to use it more days out of the year.

Whether in a restaurant, corporate workplace, shopping center, or residential structure,Glass skylights are wonderful tools for improving energy efficiency and morale. And a beautiful view certainly doesn’t hurt!

Our Project in Chicago, J. Parker Roof Top Bar came up as a news on WGNTV, we are happy to share this with you.


Outdoor patios and roof areas are boons for businesses during Chicago's warmer months, but they're not as big of an asset during days like today, when the city is buried by snow.

This has forced business owners to be creative. Parson's Chicken & Fish converted its backyard into an ice skating rink. Kaiser Tiger has turned to the winter sport of curling.

Meanwhile the Boka Restaurant Group, the management team behind the J. Parker in Lincoln Park, have decided to go full Skydome. Monday night will be the first time the public gets to experience the bar's retractable glass rooftop. The new rooftop will cover the open-air space on the 13th floor of the Hotel Lincoln, fully sheltering patrons from snow, rain and cold, allowing the bar to be open all year.

SecurTrak enables operation of the enclosure even by kids SecurTrak® system enabled our client’s 6 year old daughter to operate modules one at a time easily, while providing the best structural integrity and safety. Testimonial from our client; “We have only had our enclosure up for a few weeks and already are loving it. A lot of our friends are talking about closing their pools for the winter, but here we are going out for a swim in the evenings even when it is getting close to freezing point outside. It is so easy to open and close, our 6 year old daughter is able to push one panel at a time. With the fall season here, we don’t have to worry about getting any of the leaves into our pool. My plants love the humidity and are starting to rebloom. Jeff was so knowledgeable and professional throughout the whole purchasing and installation. It was amazing to see the crates of panels become an enclosure in a matter of a few days. We highly recommend this enclosure!”
