Skylights are a great way to get natural light in your home. Natural light is a big buzz word among house shoppers, so a skylight can help increase the value of your home. Plus, in the meantime, it’s pleasant to be able to see the sky and get sunshine streaming into your space.
A Fort Washington Home Gets a New Skylight
One downside to skylights is that they do signify a weak spot in your roof. The area around your skylight is prone to leaking, but as long as you maintain it, you should be in the clear. Recently, we replaced a skylight for this homeowner in Fort Washington, taking care to use a new flash kit around the edge of the skylight. The flashing adds an extra layer of security around the window to prevent leaks.
While we were at it, we also furnished and installed aluminum capping on all the windows, replacing the trim as needed.
