Additional Home Improvement Services
When you get a new roof or repair your existing one, you might be interested in upgrading certain aspects. For example, if you’re looking to increase the daylighting in a portion of your home, you might be interested in installation of a skylight or sun tunnel. Yet you don’t want to have to hire a different contractor to get the job done.

We schedule our jobs around your timeline, and we’ll offer three separate quotes: Good, Better and Best. This ensures that you’ll find the price point that best fits your budget.

Considering a Roof Upgrade?
Getting a new or updated roof offers homeowners a great opportunity to invest in additional upgrades. Here are some upgrades to consider if you are about to re-roof your home.
Gutter, Gutter Guard, Flashing & Chimney Cap Installation
INSTALL GUTTERS & GUTTER GUARDS
For new roofing installations or re-roofs, our experts strongly advise installing gutters and gutter guards at the same time. They will protect your home for years to come and provide an attractive finish.
INSTALL A CHIMNEY CAP
When your fireplace is not in use, air gushes into your home from the chimney when the weather is cold. Installing a chimney cap is not just about keeping the rain or insects out, it’s about saving energy.
INSTALL EAVE FLASHING
If you’ve experienced winter damage such as ice dams, you’ll understand the need to install eave flashings. These membranes form a watertight seal over the eaves, the portion most susceptible to ice dams.
Skylights are an excellent roof upgrade. They not only make rooms more visually appealing, but the extra natural light you receive can boost your mood! Achten’s Quality Roofing offers homeowners and business owners the option of custom skylight installation with the following benefits:
Natural light stimulates hormones that make us feel better, which directly influences our mood and overall outlook.
Adding a skylight can give you the lighting you need to make an interior design come together.
Today’s homes are built closer together, which makes a skylight a good way to strike a balance between sufficient natural light and privacy.
Skylights do come with blinds, which increases the overall energy efficiency of the skylight by 37%. You can close the blinds in the summer or winter to reduce heat gain or add insulation.
An economical solution for decks, fixed skylights are perfect for giving hallways, stairwells, and other closed-in, dark spaces the illusion of space.
SOLAR POWER “FRESH AIR” SKYLIGHTS
Using natural light will reduce energy costs, lower energy consumption and decrease demand for utility usage. You can control it’s functions with a remote control, which makes usage extremely easy and efficient. Our Solar skylights are capable of detecting rain to keep your home water free while you’re away from home. Put technology at the tip of your fingers – rather, on your roof!
ELECTRIC “FRESH AIR” SKYLIGHTS
Designed with deck and curb mounts in mind, this is the perfect daylighting solution for overhead applications. It allows for abundant natural light, and it opens with a touch of a button to let in fresh air. If you happen to forget to close it, the rain sensor will automatically shut the skylight!
MANUAL “FRESH AIR” SKYLIGHTS
This skylight enables any home to embrace the best of what nature has to offer. You can open the skylight to get maximum fresh air and help your home’s moisture stay balanced.
Sun Tunnel Installation
Sun tunnels are often referred to as tubular skylights. The polished interior of a sun tunnel helps channel light along the length of the tube, acting like a reflective mirror. At the end of the tube is a diffuser which spreads light throughout the space. Enjoy the following benefits with a sun tunnel:
Sun tunnels are easy and affordable solutions to provide natural light to rooms with little light or no windows, including areas of your home where it’s not practical to install a window. Achten’s Quality Roofing recommends VELUX® Sun Tunnels.
Sun tunnels are fairly inexpensive to install and take up very little space. They can be used in spaces such as hallways, stairwells, bathrooms, closets, laundry rooms, utility rooms and more.
You don’t have to worry about your utility bills rising with sun tunnels; they reduce heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer.
