Skylights that are installed without the proper professional sealing standards can turn out to be very costly in the long run. Ridgeline Roofing offers their glass installation expertise to give your home the long term protection that you should expect and deserve from a specialist.
Installing a skylight into your home can both improve the value of your home by up to 10% and help you save money on heating bills and electricity bills. Adding a skylight allows more of the sun's rays into your home, this both serves to reduce the amount of lights that you need to turn on and also more heat energy is trapped by the skylight reducing the amount of energy needed to heat your home.

What Sets Us Apart?
Ridgeline Roofing is commited to providing you with the best service on top of the line products that are built to last. We are a Preferred Contractor through Owens Corning. We install a 50-year Owens Corning Tru Definition Duration shingle equipped with algae resistant stones and “SureNail” technology to withstand up to 130mph winds.
Ice & water shield is installed as underlayment in all problematic areas, valleys, walls, chimneys, and up to the first 6ft from your roof edge.
Breathable Synthetic underlayment is then installed on the remaining surface of the roof, allowing your decking to breathe while acting as a vapor barrier between plywood and hingles.
Ridge vent is installed on the peak then covered with a cap shingle to match your brand new roof! It is important that under your ridge vent a 2” hole is cut on both sides of the peak, stretching the whole length of your roof. This gap will act as your exhaust to the cool air being taken in through your soffit intake vents.
All these systems properly installed together allow for your roof to withstand any weather and keep your most important investment dry!
