Hiring The Right Skylight Installer

Skylight installation is sort of a tricky job. It’s only a very select niche group of professionals really offer a quality installation that will last years without a leak. Generally, whoever does your roofing can suggest a good skylight installer. Many times though, these companies work together and the person they recommend is most likely recommended as a friend. This being said, that skylight installer may not be the best for the job.

When looking for the right skylight installer, be sure that first of all they are licensed, and they have been licensed for some time now. The more experience they have under their belt, the less likely they are to make a mistake on your roof. Additionally, shop around, a good skylight installer should be able to get the job done cheaper than a general contractor would charge you.

It’s also recommended that you have your installer walk you through the whole process. Do your homework ahead of time and be sure to try to catch any steps they may try to skip. Also be sure to ask what to do in the case of a leak, if your skylight installer just tells you to caulk it, kick em to the curb! Any reputable skylight professional knows that skylights have weep holes in them that allow water to not get trapped in the framework. If they don’t know how to properly fix it, you shouldn’t trust them to install it in the first place.
