If the skylight was installed according to industry standards, it should last 15 to 20 years, depending on the model and product quality. After 15 years, you should monitor your skylights carefully and start thinking about replacing them. If you are planning to re-shingle your roof, it’s economical to replace skylights or sun tunnels at the same time.
Preventive maintenance is your best ally to keep your skylights in good condition for a long time. Clear snow off your roof in winter or invest in a skylight cover to keep ice dams from forming when winter temperatures vary.
