Omaha Skylight Replacements
Skylight replacements in the Omaha Nebraska area
have special elements to be considered.
The majority of skylights installed in the Omaha metro area prior to the year 2000 are Wasco brand skylights and most of those units are no longer in production. Therefore, when replacing a skylight in the Omaha area the most logical replacement brand would be a Velux skylight.
However these units require different rooftop placement and additional interior trim considerations to be addressed.
Here at The Skylight Guys we are Certified in the
Installation, repair and maintenance of Velux skylights.

A typical VELUX skylight replacement
happens in two worry-free phases.
Step #1: The Rooftop
Depending on the circumstances such as roof pitch, interior light shaft depth and shape, and weather, installations can take between 2 and 4 hours. The rooftop portion of the replacement includes removing the roofing material around the old skylight inspecting the substrate and making any repairs. Removing the old skylight. Then installing a new skylight and replacing the roofing materials.
Step #2: The Interior
This usually takes less then a hour, and can consist of fitting the skylight to the existing drywall shaft or installing trim to make the unit fit correctly.
Then we remove and haul away the old skylight along with any other debris.
We tarp the flooring to catch any debris. and will put up a plastic curtain around the area if need be. We will make every effort to protect your home’s interior from dust and other installation debris.
