Replacing skylight glass

Posted by hopesprings (My Page) on

We have 2 Wasco fixed double pane skylights that are about 15 years old. They have been great, but one has a broken seal. Wasco sent us to the local lumber yard to order replacement window, which they said is really a simple job to replace. However, we have a metal roof and I'd like to find someone to do this (DH is convinced he can do it, but it's a little challenging and he's 67, so I am also trying to avoid permanent injury).

Lumber yard gave us a name, but the guy said he doesn't do skylights. The skylight guys (who sell Velux) want to sell us a whole new one, of course. Any thoughts on how to find someone to do the job?

Call a true glass shop, they should be able to help you.

RE: Replacing skylight glass

Thanks, but we actually went to the glass shop that did some of our other work, and they were almost rude in telling us they don't do "COM" glass, and that skylights are a pain in the @$#. We are at a loss as to next steps.

RE: Replacing skylight glass

OK, then. Are there any other glass shops near you? Where do you live approximately, maybe someone on here will be able to point you in a good direction after we have that information.
