NEW SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENT NEAR CEDARHURST
Expressway Specializes In Seamless Skylight Replacements
Property owners should take into consideration maintaining the roof, flashing and shingles to avoid having skylight damage that can be severely problematic to your skylight and residence. The most common need for a new skylight replacement is from weakening when water intrudes its way under the gaps of the skylight itself, into the surrounding metal skylight flashing and eventually into the dwelling itself. Another reason you may need a new skylight replacement is improper replacement of what you have there now. As a projecting roof feature, they are more susceptible 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 observe your skylight is leaking, it’s paramount to take immediate action. A skylight will truly add efficient ambiance to a space. Replacement is not always the end result – especially if the problem is small and localized.
An unsound skylight replacement is the principal cause of skylight alarm. Or trouble can occur within a few weeks or months when the flashing begins to fail due to water intrusion. High humidity can also lead to the development of condensation that drips down the glass of your structure’s skylight. In the event your skylight is leaking when there’s not a cloud in the sky, indoor humidity is the most likely issue. Still, it’s a good thought to get your skylight analyzed by a certified skylight tech.
Installing A Beneficial New Skylight
Skylights provide a better quality of light in the home. Depending on their design, a skylight could offer a localized light to highlight a room, or light that is spread uniformly over a wide area. Natural sunlight provides better aesthetics, better color, and a better definition of space and architectural details.

How Do Skylights Become Alarming?
Our technicians may evaluate 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. High quality metal flashing needs to be installed around the skylight to keep it from leaking. Unfortunately, even the best flashing is prone to wear out much sooner than other roofing elements.
We’ll test the skylight’s insulation – because without enough insulation – or no insulation at all – warm air will flow up easily from inside the property and cause condensation. When insulation touches the glass, condensation over and over 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.
Small hailstones often cause chipping. Our team of skylight and Cedarhurst roofing contractors at Expressway installs a wide variety of skylight brands and we’re sure to have one that matches your budget. There are many new skylight options to choose from with modern skylights. There are three main arrays of skylights: ventilating (sometimes called “roof windows”), fixed and tubular. Fixed skylights are generally used in low-lit sections like attics and the stairwell. Ventilated skylights serve many objectives. In addition to that, a ventilated skylight also illuminates the area.
