A Typical Deck Mount Flashing and Cladding Replacement:
This residence in Denver’s Ken Caryl neighborhood had problems with a couple of older VELUX skylights. Built in 1974, the skylights were probably added at a later date.
After this summer’s hail storms, the owners determined that they were in need of repair.
The first step is to remove the shingles around the skylight and strip the existing head, sill, step pieces and cladding.
Ice and water shield is applied around the skylight. A very sticky sheet of goo. It creates a weather tight seal between all of the components. Including the skylight itself.
Now the sill, step pieces and shingles are installed. Finishing with the head piece and the new cladding.
Third Step: Peace of Mind!
- The skylights have been restored to near new condition and should provide many years of trouble free service.
- Skylight Specialists, Inc. warrants our workmanship for five years.
