SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENTS NEAR BABYLON

Do You Need A New Skylight Installed?

Clients should take into consideration maintaining a roof, flashing and shingles to avoid having skylight leaks that can be very problematic to your skylight and structure. During the colder months, water typically freezes and expands in unmaintained skylights – which causes issues. This breakage can cause gaps to grow – and after a few seasons of continuous expansion and contraction, you will see that the skylight will start to leak as it allows water to get in. Another reason you may need a new skylight installation is improper craftsmanship of what you have there now.  As a projecting roof feature, they are more given to problems like cracks or leaking than other sections of a structure’s roof. The likelihood of discovering that your skylight is leaking increases with its frequency of use. If you see your skylight is leaking, it’s paramount to take direct action. A skylight can truly add good ambiance to a location. More often than not, skylights can be fixed.

The window that makes up the skylight must be fitted properly to the opening made for it. Or weakening might occur within a few weeks or months when the flashing begins to fail due to water insertion. High humidity can also lead to the development of condensation that drips down the glass of your structure’s skylight. Luckily, an indoor humidity complication is easy to fix. An anti-fogging product can eliminate the condensation build-up and ensure that moisture will no longer condense. Still, it’s a good objective to get your skylight inspected by a professional skylight tech.

Skylight Issues To Watch For Replacing

Skylights provide a better quality of light in the home.

Installing A Brand New Skylight

Our roofing experts will inspect the skylight flashing, check the skylight’s insulation, replace the weather seals – or replace the skylight itself – if it is beyond repair or the actual culprit. We’ll inspect the skylight’s flashing – which is the metal component installed specifically to prevent projecting roof elements from developing leaks around their sides.

We’ll inspect the skylight’s insulation – because without enough insulation – or no insulation at all – warm air will flow up freely from inside the residence and cause condensation. When insulation touches the glass, condensation usually results, which brings you right back to the problem from above. We could replace the skylight’s weather seals – which provide a waterproof barrier to further support all the elements that keep your roof leak-free. Luckily, this is an easy address that may take only a few minutes.

Cracked glass may be the reason your skylight is leaking (like if you have recently had a hailstorm). Let us fix your leaking skylight today! There are many new skylight options to choose from with modern skylights. There are three main types of skylights: ventilating (sometimes called “roof windows”), fixed and tubular. Just like their name indicates, fixed skylights are ‘fixed’ and do not open for air ventilation. Basically, they’re totally sealed closed on the roof. Ventilated skylights work as a source of ventilation of air and light. Basically, a ventilated skylight is an addition of a new window onto the roof of your structure.

Tubular skylights are a product that provides natural light to both residential and commercial indoor spaces . Tubular skylights consist of 3 main components: A roof-mounted light collector – mounted on the roof and typically consists of a parabolic lens which allows for light collection throughout the day. These lenses are set into a frame. A highly-reflective tube – The light collected is reflected through the tube to the interior fixture with diffuser lens. And an interior fixture. This interior fixture can be supplied with a combined electrical light as a backup for cloudy days or at night. Tubular skylights are the perfect option when the roof space required for fixed or ventilated skylight is not available – or scarce.
