In this day of home and garden television and aspirational realty, residential roofing can transform a lovely house into a stunning living space. An OpenAire retractable roof or skylight can be the spark that sets off spectacular settings and makes the most of the surrounding environment, creating a unique look or a dramatic signature feature. From stylish kitchen areas to elegant dining areas to magnificent enclosed private pools, OpenAire adds value and elegance to residential construction.
Our designers are committed to using the materials and elements already featured in residential buildings and creating unique custom skylights or retractable roofs that reflect the architecture and style of the house.
