In a perfect world, we would all live in a bright and cheerful open-concept home that allowed a gentle breeze throughout, with nothing but sunshine pouring in.  We would bathe ourselves in natural light and never have to deal with a polar vortex.  Unfortunately, that is not the case in Alberta where winter temperatures can drop as low as -40°C (see our blog Roofing in -40°C).  Luckily, there is a solution to improve both the interior and exterior of your home at the same time!  Skylights are both a practical and luxury item that can increase your home’s value.

There are different options for skylights including blinds, venting, and even solar panel features.  If you install a solar skylight, you can save the receipt and get a rebate on your tax return! When shopping for a new skylight, always seek the advice of the experts and do not forget to check the warranty of both the product and the installation. A typical skylight should last between 8-15 years, depending on the installation technique and the quality of the manufacturing of the skylight.  We recommend regular inspections of your skylights and looking out for cracks and breaks. A leaky skylight can be an indication of a larger problem with your roof, so be sure to call an expert right away if you notice any signs of water damage.  At No Payne, we are proud to offer both bespoke workmanship and 10-year full warranties.

Cutting a hole into your ceiling can be intimidating and dangerous, so we recommend saving it for the professionals.  Improper handling or an error with installation will both dull the performance and shorten the lifespan of your skylight.  Professionals can also help you decide the best placement for your skylights and can even place them in a position where the temperature of your home can be increased all year round – saving you some extra money in the winter!  A poorly positioned skylight in the summer can make rooms unbearably hot, so you can actually install opening skylights or skylights with built-in shades.

Are you replacing your roof? How about replacing or adding a new skylight at the same time?  For half a decade, No Payne Roofing has been consistently delivering superior skylight installation solutions to properties within the Calgary region.  In fact, No Payne Roofing is a preferred installer of Bellex Elite skylights, and our skylights all come with manufacturer warranty. As skylight installation experts, we take pride in professional installations that are performed with unparalleled expertise and strict compliance with stringent safety measures with all different types of skylights.
