Custom Skylights Project
Total Value. Superior Craftsmanship. Long-Term Investment.
This is the before and after of a custom skylight job we did on an old home in the Toronto beaches area. These old homes come with all kinds of interesting designs and features. These sorts of things aren’t always practical or installed correctly on old homes. Nevertheless we love old homes because of what these “Interesting” features provide… Character!! Character is great but we still have to be comfortable. In this case the design was great however the installation and quality of materials was lacking heavily. The Glass was uninsulated, or had LowE Coatings which is standard for high-end skylights these days. The Flashing was poorly installed and had many vulnerable weak points for water to get in and obviously the paint peeling wasn’t helping. Usually people can live with paint peeling however the leaking and the uninsulated glass was making it very uncomfortable. When its hot outside its EXTRA Hot inside. When it’s raining outside, its damaging drywall inside. We’re proud took look back on this project knowing we used the best materials in conjunction with outstanding workmanship. The Skylights Unlimited team has always been dedicated to quality first and this project is a prime example.
