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.

First Step:

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.

Second Step:

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.
