But just like all elements of your home, skylights are not immune to degradation and need of repair as they age. If your roofing skylights are under 7 years of age, it may be time to think about and inspection or replacement.

Who to Call When You Need Roofing Skylight Repair

Most homeowners will experience skylight leaks at some point when the skylight and its flashing become compromised. In fact, roofing skylights and chimneys are the two most common sources of roof leaks. If that happens, who would you call to repair leaking skylights? Golden Group Roofing, that’s who!

If you find yourself with a leaking skylight, call Golden Group Roofing for emergency roofing skylight repair service.

Never fear! You do not need to get a separate contractor to install your roofing skylights. Golden Group Roofing is a certified and fully trained installer of high quality skylights from Velux.

Skylights can go in just about any room – the kitchen, common living rooms, bathroom, bedrooms – you name it!  With built in shades and optional solar powered batteries, you can even improve the energy efficiency of your home.

When’s the Best Time to Replace Your Roofing Skylights?

The absolute best time to replace your aging skylights is when you are replacing your roof as well. Thankfully, you only need one installer for the whole job – Golden Group Roofing will take care of all of it for you.

It’s More Cost Effective to Replace the Roof and the Skylight at the Same Time

If you install a new roof but don’t replace the skylights right away, your roof and skylights will not age together.  Skylights typically have a warranty of 12 years. After that, they become prone to water entry. When the skylights age and fail in a few years, think of all the extra labor cost you are paying for to have the skylights replaced separately.  Having the roof and skylight
