Frequently Asked Questions
To help our clients better understand Old Skylight Replacement Fishers, we’ve complied this brief list of frequently asked questions.
How do I know when it’s time to have my skylight replaced?
There are several signs you can look for to know if you need Old Skylight Replacement Fishers. The most obvious signs would be if there are any leaks coming from your skylight or noticeable cracks in the skylight itself.
But the signs of an ageing skylight aren’t always so blatant. You should also inspect the area around your skylight for any warped or damaged wood, which would indicate water seeping in around the seal.
Another sign that’s often overlooked is an unexplained draft. If you can feel cold air coming in, even though your skylight is closed, that could indicate that the seal has failed and your skylight needs to be replaced.
My skylights are 20 years old but they are no leaks or any other signs of damage. Is it acceptable to keep them or should I have them replaced?
If there are no noticeable issues with your skylights, of course you can keep them. But keep in mind that skylight technology has improved significantly in the past 20 years. If you invest in old skylight replacement, the new ones will be much more energy efficient than the skylights you had replaced. You could actually end up saving money on your energy bills if you have new skylights installed.
What are the benefits of Old Skylight Replacement in Fishers?
As mentioned in the previous response, energy efficiency is one major benefit that accompanies old skylight replacement in Fishers. But that’s just one of several benefits available to you.
Another benefit you can enjoy is a sizeable tax credit on selected models. If you choose solar powered skylights that open to the outside, you can earn a 30% federal tax credit from the cost of the product and installation.
Also keep in mind that by upgrading your skylights, you’re making an investment in your home; having new skylights installed will increase your overall property value. This perk will come in especially handy when it comes time to sell your home.
I’m getting a new roof. Do I need to get my old skylights replaced or just install new flashing?
It’s understandable that you’d like to cut costs when having a new roof installed. Yes, it is possible to just have new flashing installed but doing so could be a bad choice. Here’s why:
- If you have your skylight replaced at the same time your roof is redone, it will cost you less in the long run. It’s better to have both services completed at once instead of hiring skylight installers at a later date because it saves on labor and material expenses.
- Having your skylights replaced when your roof is done also means there will be fewer disruptions to the lives of your family members.
- Seal failure is a common issue with skylights after reroofing. If you just have new flashing installed instead of old skylight replacement, you risk having your seals fail.
- If your seals fail, causing a leak, the roofing around your skylight will have to be torn up and replaced to fix the damage.
Having new skylights installed when your home is being reroofed is a really good idea. It’s much more convenient and affordable than putting your skylight replacement off until a later date.
Do you only do Old Skylight Replacement Fishers?
No, we’re not limited to just skylight replacement. We also install new skylights and can repair skylights that are damaged.
What kind of skylights do you carry?
We offer a wide variety of skylights including fixed skylights, sun tunnels, skylights that can be opened manually, and the new VELUX solar powered “fresh air” skylights.
How do I know which skylight is right for me?
The best way to decide is to determine your skylight needs. Do you want a skylight that opens to the outside or remains shut? What type of budget are you working with? Are you interested in receiving tax benefits from your choice of skylight?
