FORT MILL, SC, June 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to Remodeling Magazine's Cost vs. Value Report, a roof replacement returns nearly 68 percent of its cost when you sell your home. If you don't happen to be moving right away, the replacement still improves the appearance of your biggest investment while protecting the contents and allowing you to enjoy your home even more.

Tip 1: Warranty Synchronization
Refoofing time is the smartest time to either replace existing skylights or install them for the first time. Not only is it convenient and more affordable to combine reroofing work with other rooftop improvements, it allows you to synchronize the warranty coverage for all the products.

If you've had skylights for a long while, the flashing around them may have deteriorated over time, making them susceptible to leaks and less energy efficient. Modern Energy Star-qualified fresh air skylights, like the solar powered fresh air skylight line from VELUX America, in addition to providing abundant daylighting, can improve indoor air quality through passive ventilation and greatly reduce dependence on expensive artificial light sources and mechanical ventilation. There's a 10-year no-leak warranty with the units in addition to other material and workmanship warranties.

Tip 2: Federal Tax Credit Savings
If you're considering a first-time skylight installation, roof replacement time is the perfect time. Choose solar powered fresh air skylights, with energy efficient solar powered blinds, and both, as well as installation costs, are eligible for a 30 percent federal tax credit.

Adding blinds further increases energy efficiency to reduce power bills. A blackout blind can improve the energy performance rating of the skylight as much as 45 percent, a light filtering blind by as much as 39 percent, and a Venetian blind by as much as 34 percent.

Tip 3: VELUX Manufacturer Cash Rebate
From now until August 15, 2014, there's also a $200 cash rebate on solar powered skylights available direct from VELUX. This additional saving can make a venting fresh air model, with all the bells and whistles, including rain sensor and remote control, less expensive than an entry-level fixed skylight for either replacement purposes or for a new installation.

To illustrate how skylights could look, room-by-room, in your home, there's a Skylight Planner App available from VELUX. Just download it, take pictures of your rooms, and overlay skylight choices until you've found the perfect fit.
