Ultimate Guide to Skylight Replacement

1,016 View

In this video we show you how to replace a skylight on a shingle roof with a new, deck-mounted, Velux brand skylight. Every skylight install and replacement won't be the same, but with a little tweaking to flashing or ice and water shield, you should be able to apply our techniques to allow for a full replacement with your own two hands!

Roofing mistakes can cause hundreds of dollars in damage to your home. If you follow our roofing tips and tricks, we make it clear how you can avoid unnecessary costs. For more roofing tips, visit our channel or visit us at cenvarroofing.com!

Drill (can use screwdriver if the new skylight is nail mounted)
