Do I Need My Skylight Replaced?

There are usually 4 major spots our technicians look first to fix that leaky skylight of yours. 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 inspect the skylight’s insulation – because without enough insulation – or no insulation at all – warm air will flow up freely from inside the house 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.

Small hailstones often cause chipping. 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. Basically, a ventilated skylight is an addition of a new window onto the roof of your home.

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