Do You Have A New Skylight To Install?

If you would like to minimize the feasible costs of a high address or replacement, it is good for you to keep your current skylight clean and well-maintained from the time of its initial installation. During the colder months, water typically freezes and expands in unmaintained skylights – which causes damage. This problem can cause gaps to grow – and after a few seasons of continuous expansion and contraction, the owner will observe that the skylight will start to leak as it allows water to get in. Another reason you may need a new skylight installation is unsound construction of what you have there now.  As a projecting roof feature, they are more susceptible to problems like cracks or leaking than other spots of a property’s roof. The likelihood of discovering that your skylight is leaking increases with its frequency of use. A homeowner might notice their skylight is leaking every time it rains. A skylight can truly add striking ambiance to a spot. However, if the skylight repair will cost thousands of dollars, we might consider building a new one.

An incorrect skylight installation is the main cause of skylight concerns. If the skylight fitting is not installed correctly, you may experience leaks immediately. The battle between indoor and outdoor temperatures creates condensation. Damage is more likely if you need to run your dwelling’s air conditioner frequently to make your space even more comfortable. Still, it’s a good thought to get your skylight inspected by a certified skylight tech.

Installing A Brand New Skylight

There are usually 4 major places 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 home 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.

Cracked glass may be the reason your skylight is leaking (like if you have recently had a hailstorm). Our team of skylight and Cutchogue 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 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 serve many duties. Basically, a ventilated skylight is an addition of a new window onto the roof of your dwelling.

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. Also, skylights can either be ‘fixed’ or ‘venting’ – meaning they may open to allow in fresh air or vent unwanted indoor air pollutants outside. Did you know that venting skylights can be solar powered?
