Skylight Installation & Repair
Leverage the sun and light up your space, safely
Knocking a hole in your ceiling can be intimidating, but done carefully and correctly, it can really change your space. Sure, you love the idea of bringing in more light, but you want to make sure it’s done right. As with roofing, you don’t want to skimp on quality and there are important considerations such as energy efficiency, water tightness, sound reduction and more. Installing a skylight is a serious undertaking, and you want to make sure you’ll be satisfied with your decision later on. One of the most common mistakes is choosing the wrong size for your skylight. Our experts can help you pick the right type, size and spot in your home or business to bring more of the outdoors inside and introduce more natural lighting into a room. Done right, it can be a valuable upgrade.
Skylights require immediate attention. Many skylight leaks begin when water makes its way under gaps in the skylight itself, into the flashing around the skylight, or the flat roof membrane that goes up the curb. When this water freezes, and in Quebec freezing temperatures are a given, it will expand causing the gap to widen. Skylights can also leak due to improper installation. Leaking should be addressed immediately by a professional. Don’t risk climbing on your roof and always seek expert advice.
