Roof ventilators and skylights are additional features that you add to your roofing systems. Although these features are not entirely common in most households, several homes in Sydney enjoy the advantages of having skylights and ventilation systems on their roofs.
Skylights can provide extra lighting during daytime. Vented skylights can also allow some air to come in. It is an excellent addition to any area in your home that requires more fresh air.
