Break away from wanting your new skylight to match the old one

You need a replacement skylight for one reason or another. There is another skylight next to it...same age, same tinted dome style. It's easy to decide that you need to replace one with something that looks exactly like the one that remains.

I encourage you to consider the following before you commit to this decision:

The skylight you are trying to "match" is plastic. The only way to match it to get another plastic skylight. Plastic skylights lack many things possible with glass.

They transfer heat and cold into your room. They are less durable. They have a dated appearance v. clear glass. They are prone to condensation more than glass.

AND...they are NO LESS EXPENSIVE than a energy efficient glass skylight that provides all the benefits.

Here is a surprise to many homeowners.. You can replace your old acrylic skylight tops and leave the box and flashing,no additional roofing or interior work and expense.

You can have beautiful matching glass skylights that are BOTH working for you, not against you.

Give us a call, I'd be happy to give you some more information!
