Skylight Installation South Huntington

NEW Skylight Installation South Huntington


Leaky Skylight Repair

Recently, a Suffolk County homeowner called us to price a new skylight for his South Huntington home. After going through the pros and cons with the homeowner, he decided it was definitely worth the investment and we went to work on installing his new skylight two days later.


Maybe you also have one of the many houses in South Huntington that has a bathroom, hall or another room where daylight only enters when you open a door. Dim and dark, these rooms are unwelcoming places until you turn on the light. Those days are over. Our skylights really change a room.


A new skylight from Expressway Roofing can finally bring that natural light into that uninviting, dark and isolated space through a specially designed skylight that passes from roof through the ceiling into that dark, unlit space.

Installing A New Skylight

This skylight installation process was tricky. Hiring the wrong skylight installation pro could easily leave you with a costly water leak and damage  – which is always followed by an even more expensive skylight repair because the whole installation may have to be redone from scratch.


First, we removed the roofing shingles where the skylight was going to be placed. We then assessed the integrity of the plywood underlay beneath those shingles to make sure the skylight will have a stable enough resting place for years to come. The plywood was okay.


We then framed out the 30″ x 60″ skylight in the roof and plywood with 2x4s. The new vented skylight was ready to go in. After the skylight was secured, it was time for the all-around ice shield to be affixed to the skylight. Next, we sealed all of the skylight’s corners and seams with flashing to make sure it’s not going to leak.


Lastly, it was time for the new shingles to be placed in all around the brand new skylight. We do try our best to match the shingle color as closely as possible. We can’t always get a 100% match due to fading and wear – but we can get those roofing shingles to match pretty closely! And that was it! We were in and out of their South Huntington home in less than a day and the homeowner was pleased with the new light in her previously ‘natural-light-poor’ bathroom.
