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.
