Skylight Replacement Services in Clarkston, MI
The percentage of homes built with skylights in the 1990’s increased significantly – mainly because they are a cost effective way to let in natural daylight.
Do you have a skylight that’s starting to show its’ age? On average, most older skylight models last between 15 to 20 years before showing signs of a leak. If you have plans for a roof replacement, we always recommend replacing skylights along with the roof – unless they have been recently replaced.
My skylights were replaced to my complete satisfaction. I would highly recommend Roofing and Beyond as they exceeded my expectations!
Can My Skylight Be Repaired?
Unfortunately, we are unable to repair skylights. All it takes is one minor defect from when the skylight was originally installed to cause a problem.
The exact source of a leak is often difficult to pinpoint because it can result from a number of different locations including: flashing leak(s), the skylight frame, glass/seal failures, weatherproofing membrane missing or not properly installed, nail pops or a leak from the surrounding shingles.
In order for Roofing and Beyond to properly warranty and guarantee our work, a full skylight replacement is recommended.
How Long Does It Take To Replace A Skylight?
-We can usually replace a skylight in a few hours depending on the size of the unit and the difficulty of the roof.
-Standard sized, non-operating Velux Skylights are in stock at our local supplier.
-The lead time for most operating units and skylights with pre-installed blinds is typically 2 to 3 weeks.
-Custom sized units are available as a special order and take approximately 4 to 6 weeks to arrive.
How Much Does A Skylight Cost?
The cost to replace a skylight depends on a few different factors including the type of skylight, the size of the unit, and the difficulty of the roof.
On average, the cost to replace a standard fixed skylight is $ 1,500 for labor and material. We offer a per-unit discount to replace multiple skylights at the same time.
There is a significant discount for replacing skylights along with a roof replacement, since our crew will already be on site working. Feel free to call us at (248) 657-4144 for more information!
