When it comes to investing in home renovations, many homeowners tend to ignore the attic. However, you should put some serious thought into renovating this little-used storage space. In fact, you may even want to install some attic windows.

Windows can boost the lighting of a dreary attic, making the area truly feel alive.

The following are a few benefits of attic windows:

  • Improve lighting – Windows will provide your attic with much needed natural light. Most attics have poor lighting because they weren’t built with living in mind – they were most likely built with storage in mind. The more lighting your attic has, the more you can do with it in terms of use.
  • Improve ventilation: Attics are often stuffy due to the lack of ventilation. A few attic windows will go a long way in helping to improve the air flow, reducing extreme heat, and ridding the area of odors and stuffiness.
  • Improve design: Adding windows to the attic will help both the design of the attic as well as the home’s exterior, adding to the curb appeal. This is especially true if you use dormers, awnings or casements for the windows.

These are just a few of the benefits of attic windows. For additional remodeling advice, be sure to contact us at Forner-LaVoy today.
