The Best Time to Replace A Skylight
The best time to replace a skylight is when you re-roof even if a customer has an older model skylight that hasn't started leaking. When the old roof is removed and a new one's put down, the skylight naturally gets jostled among all the movement, which more often than not leads to leaking. Replacing a skylight while you re-roof eliminates a secondary consultation and another day of construction for the customer. It gives your customers a better product, as well as peace of mind. And since surrounding roofing materials need replacing when you replace the skylight, you're working smarter, not harder, when you knock out both at one time.
