Bright Sunroom, Happy Customer

We recently installed three new VELUX Skylights with blinds in a sunroom that just wasn't meeting its potential. With some light from above, the space is now bright and airy, just as a sunroom should be.

Check out the transformation below:




 


"I am completely pleased with the skylights and installation. Joel and crew were the best contractors I have ever worked with: efficient, skilled, on-time, friendly, and detail-oriented. The VELUX hardware is simply magnificent. 

It was a pleasure doing business with you. I'll gladly recommend Naturalight Solar to anyone in the area interested in skylights.

Thank you again."

Case Study: Goodbye Leaky Skylights


Late last year Naturalight Solar, Inc. completed a large skylight replacement job in Novato. There were two old 2x9 skylights that were failing, causing leaking that resulted in water damage. Due to the large size of the existing skylights, Naturalight ordered custom curb adaptors so that new, standard size VELUX skylights could be installed.

Visible cracks in the old skylights.


Naturalight removed the existing skylights and stripped down the old, damaged material to the base, from which we started fresh. Layer by layer, we installed the new skylights. Underlayment, metal flashings, shingles, curb adaptors, and finally, new VELUX Skylights. 

Stripped down to the base. 

New shingles going on over the underlayment. 

Metal flashings installed.

The two curb adaptors held three VELUX Skylights each, two of which were solar operable skylights. The addition of the solar operable skylights made the entire project eligible for a 30% Federal Solar Tax Credit, which resulted in a $5,000 credit for the homeowner.

In Rememberance

We remember those who have served, this Memorial Day.
"We who are left, how shall we look again
Happily on the sun or feel the rain
Without remembering how they who went
Ungrudgingly and spent
Their lives for us loved, too, the sun and rain?”
-Wilfrid Wilson Gibson


The Naturalight Solar office will be closed Friday, May 25 through Monday, May 28 in observance of Memorial Day.
