Good quality skylights like VTECH solid-state skylights are a great investment that can increase your home’s value and improve quality of life. By bringing light and cheer to your home’s interior, VTECH skylights make every day at home a bit brighter.
Unfortunately, poor quality skylights can do the opposite by costing money in maintenance and repair. Without good construction and design, skylights can cost homeowners a lot over time.
Installation of a typical skylight costs between $1000 and $2000. While many homeowners assume that this is the last they’ll spend on their skylight until it’s time to replace, this is rarely the case with poor quality products. Conventional skylights are a point of vulnerability in the roof. They’re made from overlapping materials sealed together with caulk and other adhesives.
While conventional skylights may look attractive, they are not designed to withstand the elements for years without maintenance. Caulking can become cracked and brittle, eventually falling out and leading to leaks. When skylights begin to leak, this problem can quickly lead to wood rot, stains, ruined material inside the house, and other problems. Paying for a typical handyman to perform repairs can cost hundreds of dollars every time.
If you’re a homeowner with a typical skylight, you’ll need to perform regular maintenance to avoid leaks and keep your home in good repair.
VTECH solid-state skylights are made into a single piece, so they’re guaranteed not to leak. With the best warranty in the business and no maintenance, you can install them without the worry of leaks. There’s no caulking required after installation, and their superior strength ensures they’ll last for decades.

Are you settling for up-front savings over real-world performance? If so, you could incur a lot in repair costs as the years go on. While many skylights are covered under warranty when they’re first installed, their warranty eventually runs out, often before problems develop.
Often, the damage caused by leaking skylights are not covered by the skylight warranty. You’ll have to pay for these repairs out of pocket or from your insurance. Stop settling for sub-par skylight performance and start saving by reducing your maintenance and repair costs.
In a world of leaky skylights, VTECH products are designed for total convenience and exceptional performance. Contact VTECH Skylights for more information.
