SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENTS NEAR DERING HARBOR

Do You Need Your New Skylight Installed?

Clients should take into consideration maintaining a roof, flashing and shingles to avoid having skylight damage that can be very harmful to your skylight and house. During the winter months, water typically gets in, then freezes and expands in unmaintained skylights – which causes damage. This damage can cause gaps to grow – and after a few seasons of continuous expansion and contraction, the owner will recognize that the skylight will start to leak as it allows water to enter. Another reason you may need a new skylight installation is flawed construction of what you have there now.  There are more potential drawbacks to a skylight. That’s not to say a skylight is more burdensome than they’re worth, but the harsh Dering Harbor, New York weather can bring on damage. Sometimes the problem is more overt. By allowing light to stream in from the sun, a skylight window brings mood that no other feature can match. However, if the skylight repair will cost thousands of dollars, we might consider building a new one.

An imperfect skylight installation is the obvious cause of skylight leaks. Or problems might occur within a few weeks or months when the flashing begins to fail due to water penetration. The battle between indoor and outdoor temperatures creates condensation. 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 move to get your skylight inspected by a highly-trained skylight tech.

Do I Need My Skylight Replaced?

Our pros 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.

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 serve many objectives. In addition to that, a ventilated skylight also illuminates the room.

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?
