Do your skylights need to be repaired or replaced? Skylights are not meant to last forever. If you notice leaks, drafts, cracks, discoloration, or experience other issues with your skylight, it may be time to contact a professional.
Synergy Skylights will assess the current state of your skylights, provide you with a proposal of the project and quote, and schedule a time to repair or replace your skylight.
Solar “Fresh Air” Skylight
The Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylight features a solar panel that captures any available daylight and uses it to recharge a highly efficient, fully concealed battery powered operator and control system. The battery powered operator is the power source that opens and closes the skylight. A rain sensor is built in to close the unit in the event that inclement weather arises while you’re away.
Manual “Fresh Air” Skylight
The VELUX Manual “Fresh Air” Skylight is a simple, straightforward, and stunning as they come. Rather than using electric or solar-powered components, this skylight opens and closes by hand with a smooth turning handle for in-reach applications and a rod for out-of-reach ones. Like our other venting skylights, this one enables any home to embrace the very best of what nature has to offer: daylight and fresh air.
The VELUX Fixed Skylight allows you to have natural light in areas of your home you’d never thought possible! Whether your space is set up as a work area, game room, man cave, or an art studio, you can add natural light and a sky view with fixed skylights.
Skylight Life Expectancy
Skylights, like many things, have an expiration date. This date can vary based on manufacturer, roof condition, product and weather elements. The average life expectancy of a skylight ranges from 20-30 years. In most cases, a skylight needs to be replaced within this time frame. Replacing a skylight ranges in complexity, therefore it is beneficial to consult a skylight specialist to help educate you through the process.
Synergy Skylights has extensive product knowledge, and experience in construction and remodeling necessary to create a skylight replacement solution that both meets your needs and your budget.

Skylight Repair and Replacement FAQ
Yes, you can get the glass in a VELUX skylight replaced. Typically if the skylight is less than 10 years old. When we provide you with a quote, we will assess the current state of your skylight to determine whether you only need the glass replaced or whether it will involve a full replacement.
We recommend getting your skylights assessed and replaced while you are getting your roof replaced. During a skylight replacement or repair, we often also have to fix the shingles surrounding your skylight. Getting roof and skylights done at the same time avoids lengthy projects that can be done easier together.
