If your skylight is more than 10 years old it is better to replace it rather than repair it. Trying to repair an older skylight is often just a bandaid that just won't resolve the issues long term. So the Nip and Tuck version of a "facelift" for a skylight is to replace the top.

We can replace older Insula Dome, Venterama, ThermoVu and Roto skylights with energy efficient, low-e argon gas filled skylights. We have all the standard sizes and we can also custom build a skylight for you to fit your specific design needs. Skylights can be vented (they open) or fixed and can also be made with bronzed or clear glass.

So if your current skylight leaves something to be desired, ie, it looks bad, it's cracked or it leaks, we can change it into an aesthetic design feature.

We are experts in the Skylight manufacturing business. In fact, skylights are our only business. Our team has the experience and expertise to handle any skylight problem. We manufacture skylights, we also install skylights and skylight tops and we do expert repairs too.

By letting natural light stream in, skylights fill rooms with warmth and a feeling of spaciousness. Skylights also reduce the need for electrical lighting and helps control both heat gain and heat loss in Summer and Winter months, which can trim energy costs.

The frame of a skylight is designed and flashed to withstand the rigors of rainfall, wind and snow. Skylights manufactured by Skylight Specialist are designed to be leak-proof. The flashing works in concert with the roofing material to move the water away.

Some of our customers have dome skylights, which were popular in the 80's and 90's when many models of skylights suffered from leaks and the dome protected the flat skylight from water build-up. However, the plastic domes come with there own set of problems including cracking and cloudiness, ruining the aesthetic appeal of the skylight. They also do not have any energy efficiency benefits. Today's skylights, particularly skylights manufactured by Skylight Specialist, are far superior to those old skylights and do not leak. For that reason, we do not manufacture plastic/acrylic domes and we currently replace/convert domed skylights with standard energy efficient, high quality skylights in either vented or fixed models.
