Latest Advancements From Crystalite Skylights For Seattle Homeowners

Bellevue Roofing Company are skylight specialists who have replaced skylights in homes throughout Seattle’s Eastside, from Redmond to Kirkland to Mercer Island to Sammamish.

Northwest built skylights

Founded in 1982, the goal of CrystaLite was to produce a high quality and more energy efficient skylight.  Their main manufacturing facility is in Everett, WA so not only are they made in America, they are made locally.

They use regional suppliers in the manufacturing of their products, such as SAPA, Inc. based out of Portland Oregon for aluminum while Cardinal IG in Hood River furnishes most of their glass.

Tested to be the best

Standard CrystaLite skylights are NAMI certified to the NAFS Standard for the following (also known as AAMA Testing):

  • Air infiltration
  • Water penetration
  • Structure loading

In addition, they are NFRC rated for thermal performance for U-Factor, SHGC and Visible Light Transmittance (all factors which pertain to the energy efficiency of the glass).

Popular skylight for Seattle area homes

Energy Star rated, the ES Skylight is manufactured with an Advanced Frame for those who want the most energy efficient product. The Enhancement Panel was redesigned and now has a thermally broken aluminum frame with a white enamel finish, which is NFRC Rated, AAMA Tested and PVC Free.

Retrofit Solution for existing skylights

The Enhancement Panel can be purchased as a stand-alone item for installation on existing skylights.  The Energy Saving (ES) Panel has high performance glass and aluminum thermal-break drop-in frame design.

So, instead of having to replace your skylight, the ES Panel can be retrofitted under your existing skylight.  The insulating properties of the ES panel have several benefits.

  • Nearly doubles the thermal performance of the skylight
  • Blocks heat loss through the curb
  • Reduces outside noise transmission

These are the latest advancements from CrystaLite.  To learn more, visit our Skylight page on our website or contact Bellevue Roofing Company for your free estimate on skylight replacement.
