I'd love to have some skylight installed. There's really nothing like natural sunlight.

I saw an ad for a deck roofing company that installs these outdoor roofs that are like blinds that you can open and close. They look pretty nice.

It's good if a contractor does both installs and replacement and repairs, because it shows that they're more invested in doing them, so they probably have more experience and will do a better job.

Will they last as long as my roof, or will they get rusty and start to leak after a couple of years?
