A Clean Roof is a Happy Roof

Are you experiencing leaky skylights?






With rain and wind from recent storms, leaves and other debris will tend to build up on your roof in the valleys and around flashings, creating leaf dams. 

The result? Pools of water that cause damage and leaks. 

The easiest way to keep your roof happy is 
to regularly clear away built up leaves and debris. 
A happy roof means a happy you. 


Need a hand clearing that debris? Give us a call today! (707) 527-5330

Historic Home Benefits from Natural Light

A house from the 1800's, renovated with VELUX Skylights
to be environmentally responsible and historically appropriate.


In Bethlehem, Pennsylvania this c.1802 house has been altered very little since it was built, and has never had dormers, as many did from the same time period in this part of eastern Pennsylvania. The choice to install VELUX skylights was inspired by a desire to be environmentally responsible and historically appropriate when renovating the third floor of the house into an office. The architect, Artefact, Inc., used the low profile of the VELUX GPL S06 Roof Window skylights to allow the roof of the house to remain flat and uninterrupted by projections, just as it had been for over 200 years.

During the winter the skylights encourage significant solar heat gain. Even without heat, the space never dipped below 57 degrees on the coldest nights (approximately 5 degrees F) during the winter of 2005. During the summer, solar heat gain is reduced by the solar screens on the outside of the skylights. Opening the skylights in the summer creates a chimney effect, drawing air through the house and pulling cooler air in on the lower levels.
