Skylight Replacement and Installation

Having skylights can increase the beauty and value of your home, but the thought of the costs associated with skylight replacement and skylight installation stops some people from pursuing this investment. When you call Chatham-Kent Skylights, you can rest assured we’ll get the job done quickly and at a price that’s suitable for just about any budget.

A skylight allows you to ‘daylight’ your home by filling it with natural, ‘clean’ light. Artificial light, produced by fluorescent lightbulbs and LED lighting, creates electrical flicker, which has been linked to various health issues. The best way to daylight your home is with a skylight designed to prevent glare while filtering harmful UV rays.

Skylight Inspection and Repair

If you have an existing skylight needing repairs, our talented team will get the job done without any hassle. Our licensed & Certified Installers will first inspect your skylight for any cracks or leaks and check its overall integrity. We’ll then inspect the flashing and ventilation for any imperfections. If we discover any problems, we’ll let you know what your options are to prevent further damage.

There are several reasons why a skylight may begin to leak. Most often, skylights leak if you’ve replaced your roofing system without receiving a skylight replacement. Chatham-Kent homeowners also experience leaking skylights when they have old and dried out sealant, improperly installed flashing around the skylight, or heat loss around the skylight that causes ice damming. Or, if you have a skylight that begins to leak after a rain or wind storm, the shingles around the structure may be clogged with dirt, dead leaves, and other debris, preventing water from running off the roof. A leaking skylight can also occur when there are problems in other areas of the roof, and the leak eventually makes its way to the skylight.

Our experienced repair team will carefully inspect your skylight and your roof to determine the source of the leak and carry out only the necessary skylight repair. Chatham-Kent homeowners can trust the honest contractors from Chatham-Kent Skylights to make sure the job is done right the first time at an affordable price.

Skylight Replacement

You should replace your skylights when you replace your roof. Nonetheless, many contractors reuse the same skylight after replacing a roofing system. It doesn’t matter whether you changed the flashing — the skylight will generally suffer from noticeable issues within a year or two after your roof replacement.

If you have a leaking skylight but your roofing system is in good condition, we can replace the skylight and skylight flashing as well the asphalt shingles or cedar shakes around your skylight. This will ensure your skylight is properly sealed.

Skylights are beautiful and, when installed properly, can add a great deal of value to your home. Let the Chatham-Kent skylight experts at Chatham-Kent Skylights take care of all your skylight needs.
