Skylight Replacement for a Returning Client in Benbrook, Tx

At Shepherd Roofing and Renovations, there’s nothing more rewarding than earning the trust of our clients to the point where they return for additional projects. We recently had the pleasure of working with our previous client again, this time focusing on replacing three skylights in their beautiful home.

The Challenge

Our client had previously entrusted us with several home improvement projects, and we were thrilled to be called back for another. This time, the task was to address issues with three skylights that had become problematic, particularly during inclement weather. The existing skylights were outdated, and their seals and surrounding shingles no longer provided adequate protection.

Our Solution

Our team implemented a thorough and detailed approach to ensure the highest quality of repair and upgrade. Here’s how we tackled the skylight repair project:

  1. Removal of Old Materials

    We started by carefully removing all the surrounding shingles, flashing, and underlayment around each skylight. This step was crucial to expose any underlying issues and to prepare the area for the installation of new materials.
  2. Installation of Ice & Water Shield

    We installed a new layer of Ice & Water Shield around each skylight to prevent future water infiltration. This high-quality underlayment provides an additional barrier against water, ensuring long-term durability and protection for the roof structure.

  3. Custom Galvanized Flashing

    Next, we installed custom galvanized flashing designed specifically for [Client’s Name] skylights. This flashing is essential for directing water away from the skylights and preventing leaks.

  4. New Shingles Installation

    After the new flashing was in place, we installed new shingles around each skylight. Our team ensured that the shingles were meticulously aligned and securely fastened to maintain a cohesive look and optimal performance.

  5. Custom Skylights Installation

    One of the project’s highlights was the installation of three custom-ordered bronze-over-clear skylights, chosen to enhance both the functionality and aesthetic appeal of the home. The bronze tint offers improved energy efficiency and a modern look, while the clear base ensures ample natural light.

  6. High-Grade Sealant Application

    We used a high-grade sealant around all edges of the new skylights to ensure a watertight seal. This step is vital for preventing leaks and maintaining the integrity of the installation.

  7. Metal Roof Screws for Enhanced Security

    For added stability, we installed the skylights using metal roof screws. These screws provide a secure fit that can withstand harsh weather conditions, ensuring the skylights remain firmly in place.


Sealing Vents, Penetrations, and Exposed Nails

Finally, we sealed all roof vents, penetrations, and exposed nails. This comprehensive sealing process prevents potential leaks and extends the lifespan of the roof.

The completed skylight repair project resolved the issues he was experiencing and significantly enhanced the overall appearance and functionality of the roof. The new bronze-over-clear skylights provide a perfect balance of natural light and energy efficiency, transforming the interior ambiance of the home.
