flashingDaylighting is becoming a very popular and economical lighting solution in many industries.  The benefits go far beyond just happier and more productive employees.  Bottom line benefits include lower utility bills and less recurring expenses on expensive and hard to recycle bulbs.  Perhaps you may have thought about installing a daylight solution at your organization or perhaps in your new project but wondered whether you could feasibly incorporate it into your existing roof design.  Well, rest assured that the question is not whether or not there is a product for you, it is which flashing you should use to accommodate your roof.  Here are some suggestions for the most common types of roofs.

  • Shingle | Shake | Slate roofs – Pitched flashing should be used.  This options is made of sheet steel and is corrosion-resistant,  designed to withstand any type of weather.
  • Metal roof – Pitched Flashing with Metal Roof Kit
  • Spanish Tile | Flat Tile – Universal Tile Flashing should be used.  These are a particularly durable tile option and come in different colors.  They may have a smooth or rough texture and are made to stand up to a wide variances in temperature which makes them perfect for nearly any state in the country.
  • Rolled Asphalt roof – No Pitch Flashing should be used.  Ideal for flat roofs, this option is the same as a pitched version, just without the built-in slope.
