Skylight Installation in Central Florida
We have installed over 3000 skylights, I have been back to warranty only 4 of them in all these years. Homeowners perception of skylights is usually negative, they have a bad reputation for leaking and people even expect them to leak. Most homeowners are complacent to figure it’s a leak waiting to happen. I receive calls from frustrated homeowners with skylight problems. Yes a skylight is a hole in the roof, but like every other type of roof problem you need just two things to make it work – good products and the right person to perform the job. These two factors are the two biggest problems with skylights.
Skylight Replacement in Central Florida
There are hundreds of people that advertise they can fix or install skylights that are not licensed roofers. A lot of handymen will try their hand at skylights. There are simply too many people fooling around with skylights and just a small percentage are licensed professionals. Please take the time to research and find a skilled, licensed professional. The experienced technician will also know how to install them above and beyond the manufactures written instructions and to hold up in the harsh weather we are subjected to in the Tropical Florida environment
We typically like to work with quality products made by the industry leader – Velux. By using top of the line products with energy star rating, you can mitigate the chance of failure with skylights. Many of the older skylights are outdated, not energy efficient and plain outlasted their time and do not last forever. The quality of products made today should not allow for leaks or problems unless being installed or worked on by the non professionals. Many roofs are replaced by people who will re-use the old skylights on the new roof. Ridiculous as that sound, it happens often and I get many calls each year to repair or replace skylights after a re-roof. It is one of the biggest reasons behind the skylights we replace.
Homeowners are generally thrilled to see the improvement of replacing the outdated, leaking skylight into the modern, energy efficient windows. Below are examples of the three most common sized skylights. They can be installed and modified to accommodate any kind of roof material.
