Skylight Replacement in Castle Rock, CO

Broken and leaking acrylic skylights force replacements.

As you can see in this image, the damage to the drywall indicates that the acrylic dome skylight had been leaking for quite some time.

Acrylic domes are a common skylight in the Denver Metro area and often suffer hail damage. Velux warrants no glass breakage by hail up to 2″ diameter for ten years.

So glad we chose them!

Our experience with Skylight Specialists was exemplary from start to finish! Nicole visited and inspected our roof & 35 year-old skylights the morning after my call to the office. She accurately assessed our needs and confidently assured me that their team had the expertise to replace our special order skylights on our (concrete) tile roof.
Thankfully, they also did all they could to expedite our order/installation – one skylight was badly damaged due to wind, the other was leaking due to bad flashing.
Devon and his crew arrived on time and worked very hard – and kept us informed throughout. They cleaned everything up inside and out afterward. We are very impressed with Skylight Specialists and highly recommend. So glad we chose them!
