How Do Skylights Become Damaged?

We 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 structure and cause condensation. When insulation touches the glass, condensation usually results, which brings you right back to the problem from above. In some cases, rain can also infiltrate poorly insulated spaces, destroying more insulation as it leaks through. If your skylight is leaking, the weather seals may have aged and peeled thanks to exposure to the intense Long Island sun.

We may even have to replace the entire skylight itself. Minor damage can grow worse over time and then one direct hit from a larger stone may cause a crack. 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. In addition to that, a ventilated skylight also illuminates the place.

Tubular skylights are a product that provides natural light to both residential and commercial indoor areas . 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. We can build traditional shapes and sizes, as well as round sun tunnels.
