EAST HAMPTON Skylight Installation
SKYLIGHT INSTALLATION EAST HAMPTON
Rooftop windows and skylights offer a number of advantages to most East Hampton homeowners. Skylights increase the overall appeal, aesthetic and value (equity) of your Long Island home and they can solve certain issues in stuffy, cold or dark rooms.
Recently, a homeowner called us to price a new skylight for his East Hampton home. After going through the pros and cons with the homeowner, she decided it was definitely worth the initial upfront investment and we went to work on installing her new skylight the following day.
The skylight installation process is complicated – so if you don’t hire the right skylight installation pro, you could easily wind up with a 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.
Installing A New Skylight
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 just fine!
Next, we framed out the 30″ x 45″ 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 the East Hampton home in under a day and the homeowner was pleased with the new light in her previously natural-light-poor bathroom.
Thinking Of A New Skylight For Your Home?
There are more than a few pros to installing a new skylight. These roof windows let in up to five times more light than a sidewall window and plenty of warmth. Then there’s the newfound energy efficiency of today’s skylights. Heat and cold just do not escape like they used to. New skylights are now as water tight as possible – which alleviates an old worry about skylights.
There is also significant outside sound reduction built into newer skylights – plus other factors such as amazing weight load and wind resistance to consider which used to be problems in town. We suggest you look into the additional options such as skylight shading, UV coatings and automatic or manual ventilation options. Many skylight manufacturers offer high-quality products made from sustainable materials in an effort to protect the environment. Installing a skylight is a serious undertaking so you want to make sure you’ll be satisfied with your decision later on by not skimping up front.
