Why Must A Roofing Contractor Install Your Skylight?

All the benefits of a skylight won’t matter if it is not professionally installed and maintained by a roofing contractor specializing in skylights.

A Roofing contractor will know how to:

  • Install the skylight without compromising the roof, keeping the structural integrity of the roof and building intact.
  • Seal the skylight properly, it must be leak-proof during even the heaviest of rains.
  • Use the glass specially designed to withstand impact. If the skylight does not have double glazing (the second layer of tempered glass) then it is not up to current code regulations.
  • Explain the costs involved to install and maintain the skylight. Skylights need regular wear-and-tear maintenance. A leaking skylight, depending on the severity, can cause major damage to your furniture and floors.
  • Meet all the Building Codes relating to windows and doors.
