Skylights are an important way of increasing the natural light in your home. But when they get damaged – be it leaking, hail damage, or even a fallen tree – it can really affect aesthetic and usability of the skylight.
There are a few different skylights. The type of skylight affects the price of the repair job.
Fixed skylights: These are usually very simple to fix – these can be mended just by fixing the flashing. Expect to pay around $300 for this.
Vented skylights: Not as simple as fixed skylights to mend. They often require an electrician as well as a carpenter, and you can expect to pay around $70 per hour to have this fixed.
Tubular skylights: If these are damaged, it’s usually because of damage in the underlying structure. This often means that the original installation is removed, along with any work done on the roof. Expect to pay more than $500 for this.
Leaks cause damage to your whole roof, attic, insulation, inside your home…
One of the first things to be repaired when there’s a leak is the flashing. The flashing surrounds the window to prevent it leaking. The price of reflashing a skylight is around $400.
Commercial skylight repairs can be much more costly.
