Maximizing Natural Light with Skylights and Sun Tunnels

Skylights and sun tunnels bring abundant natural light into your home, transforming dark spaces. Sun tunnels are perfect for hallways, bathrooms, and closets, while skylights enhance living rooms and kitchens. A professional installation ensures that the skylight’s sides and flashings are properly sealed, preventing water damage and maintaining energy efficiency.

Different Styles and Designs of Skylights Available

Fixed Skylights

These skylights provide consistent natural light without the option to open. Ideal for rooms that need more natural light without extra ventilation, such as attics and stairwells. They are sealed tightly with self-adhesive membrane and saddle flashing to prevent leaks.

Vented Skylights

These can be opened for ventilation, helping to circulate fresh air. Perfect for kitchens and bathrooms where excess moisture is a concern. Vented skylights come with a control system for easy operation and can include rain sensors for automatic closing during bad weather.

Tubular Skylights

Also known as sun tunnels, these are ideal for small, dark areas like hallways and closets. They consist of a circular tube that captures sunlight and redirects it inside. Tubular skylights can be installed with minimal structural alterations, making them a cost-effective option for adding light.

Custom Skylight Solutions for Unique Home Designs

At our company, we specialize in designing custom skylights that fit various roof structures. For curb mounted skylights, we ensure the skylight’s frame aligns perfectly with the roof’s perimeter.

Attic Insulation and Skylight Installation: A Perfect Match

Enhance your home’s energy efficiency and comfort by installing attic insulation alongside skylight installations. Proper insulation helps maintain consistent temperatures, while skylights bring in natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting. Combining these services ensures your house stays warm in winter and cool in summer, minimizing energy costs.
By incorporating these elements, we maximize the benefits for your home, ensuring a cozy, well-lit room that leverages both attic insulation and skylight efficiency. This synergy is vital for Calgary homes, where weather can be unpredictable.

What Are Solar-Powered Skylights and Are They Right for You?

Harnessing the power of the sun, solar-powered skylights are a fantastic addition to any home. These skylights not only provide natural light but also improve energy efficiency by reducing the need for artificial lighting.
In Calgary’s diverse climate, solar-powered skylights adapt well, featuring rain sensors that close automatically during inclement weather. Their installation typically involves mounting the solar panel on the skylight itself, eliminating the need for wiring through the roofing.

Expert Skylight Replacement Services in Calgary

A skylight replacement is crucial when you notice persistent leaks despite repairs. If your roof windows show signs of condensation, or your Velux skylights have cracked glass, it’s time for action. Sun tunnel skylights often need replacement after significant damage from weather. Using a circular saw, we prepare the rough opening for installation. Watch for deteriorating step flashing and the bottom edge curling, indicating wear. Our skilled professionals ensure proper saddle flashing and alignment with the Velux Installers Program for quality assurance.

Commercial Skylight Installation for Businesses

Rapid Roofing Solutions specializes in installing skylights tailored for commercial properties. We install skylights that bring in more natural light, improving employee productivity. Our team follows detailed instructions to secure the skylight frame at each side, using specialized nail guns for stability.
Seamless integration with existing shingles and proper sealing prevents leaks, safeguarding your investment. From top outside corner detailing to seamless drywall integration, our team ensures precise, professional installations.

Cost of Skylight Installation and Replacement in Calgary

Upgrading your home with a skylight installation can range from $900 to $2,500, depending on the size and type. Replacements generally cost $800 to $1,800. Factors like shingle type, sill flashing, and step flashing influence the price.
Estimates and inspections are crucial to determine the exact cost of your project. Our team conducts thorough assessments, covering all aspects to provide an accurate quote.

Frequently Asked Questions about Skylight and Sun Tonel Installation

How do skylights improve home energy efficiency?
Skylights enhance energy efficiency by providing natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting. This helps lower electricity bills. Additionally, velux skylights with low-E coatings minimize heat loss in winter and block excessive heat in summer, improving insulation and temperature regulation. Proper installing ensures maximum energy savings.

What distinguishes fixed skylights from vented ones?
Fixed skylights are non-operable, providing natural light without ventilation. They are more energy-efficient and better sealed against leaks. Vented skylights can be opened for fresh air, ideal for bathrooms and kitchens. They may require more maintenance and sill flashing to prevent water intrusion.

How often should skylights be inspected?
Skylights should be inspected twice a year. Check for leaks, cracks, and sealant deterioration. Look at the skylight’s frame and flashing for any damage. Regular inspections can prevent costly repair and ensure your skylight remains in top condition, maintaining its energy efficiency.

Can I perform a DIY installation of skylights, or should I hire professionals?
DIY skylight installation can be challenging. It involves creating a rough opening, installing step flashing, and ensuring a watertight seal. Improper installation can lead to leaks and structural damage. Hiring professionals guarantees the job is done correctly, meeting safety standards and manufacturer instructions.

How do sun tunnels compare to skylights? Sun tunnels, or sun tunnel skylights, are ideal for smaller spaces like hallways or closets. They capture and diffuse natural light through a reflective tube. Unlike traditional skylights, sun tunnels are easier to install and cost-effective, providing more natural light without major roof modifications.

What factors affect the cost of skylight replacement in Calgary?
The cost of skylight replacement varies based on skylight type, size, and roof complexity. Additional costs include removal of the old skylight, installing new flashing, and any necessary roofing repairs. Velux products often come with a higher price but offer better durability and energy efficiency.

How long does a typical skylight installation take from start to finish?
A typical skylight installation takes one to three days. This includes cutting the rough opening, installing the skylight frame and flashing, sealing, and finishing the interior drywall. Weather conditions and roof structure can affect the timeline. Professional installation ensures a smooth, timely process.

We had a damaged roof vent for our furnace that was leaking when we contacted Austin at Rapid Roofing Solutions. He gave us a good quote quickly and had a member of his company Dylan attend to our concerns. Dylan was very friendly, professional and conscientious. He had the repairs done quickly. He took the time to explain what had been done and other problems that he had found and corrected. He is a real asset to RRS! The cost to us was exactly what we had been quoted.Thank youTerry

Great customer service! I had a repair to do, Austin was able to look at it right away, showed me pictures of the problem and determined it was something he could fix while he was there. No inflating the problem or angling for a big repair bill. I really appreciated the honesty and the service - thank you Austin!
