Pre-Installation Planning

This meticulous planning ensures that when installation day arrives, we have considered every detail, setting the stage for a transformation that will bathe your living spaces in natural light. Take a look at the steps involved in the pre-installation process. 

Site Assessment

Before we begin installation, we conduct a thorough site assessment. This step involves evaluating your roof structure to determine the best location for the skylight. Factors like sun exposure and the intended usage of the room play a crucial role in this decision-making process. Taking these factors into consideration, our goal is to maximize natural light while ensuring the skylight blends seamlessly with your home’s design.
