In the latest In Your Corner blog, we speak with Hans Mills from HK Roofing about their range of fantastic services and the benefits of installing a skylight in your home!
Aviser Finance: Hello, Hans! Can you tell us about your business and how long you’ve been in the skylight industry?
Hans: HK Roofing is a small, locally owned business in the heart of Melbourne’s inner-city suburbs. As co-directors, Kevin and I have been installing Velux skylights for over 15 years. We currently serve Bayside Melbourne, the south-eastern suburbs and the Mornington Peninsula.
AF: What are the main benefits of installing a skylight in your home?
H: Every project and skylight offers a new opportunity for light and creativity in the home and office space environment.
NATURAL LIGHT: There is nothing healthier and refreshing than having natural sunlight (or moonlight) lighting up areas of your house. Whether it’s in the bathroom – where it will help you dry faster – or in the office space which can sometimes be so all-consuming, having natural light can create a sense of well-being that electrical or solar lighting does not.
COST: Saving on your electrical bills! Skylights throughout a home reduce the use of power, bringing light into the darkest spaces in a residence.
VENTILATION: Velux offers a range of openable skylights that support the circulation of natural fresh air throughout the home. They also have options for solar-powered opening skylights using energy from the sun to power them on or off.
AF: How can our clients decide if a skylight is right for their property?
H: A skylight can be a great option if you have a space that is just too dark to be useful as part of your lifestyle. They are long-term investments that can add tremendous value to your property. Beautiful natural light is often the most aesthetic part of a household and makes a unique selling point!
Two key things to consider are:
- The skylight needs to have a roof space directly above it (i.e., it cannot be on the first floor of a two-storey house).
- Skylights can be installed on a number of different roofing applications, whether on tiles, metal or shingle roofs. Our skylights come in a range of different sizes to fit into any roof space. All Velux skylights are double-glazed and do not damage any interior paint or plasterwork.
AF: While skylights can be an excellent investment – renovations overall have become expensive. Could additional finance help clients with their renovation goals?
H: Yes, you are absolutely spot on! With rising costs of materials, inflation and labour costs installing skylights can become a costly investment. Ultimately, this should not deter you from going ahead with the work. Finance should be considered as an option for investing in your home; a skylight will always give a return on investment with value, aesthetics and enjoyment for everyone in the household.
AF: What has been your experience with Aviser Finance?
H: In our experience, Martin and the team are extremely dedicated to finding solutions to their customers’ needs.
