SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENTS NEAR ELWOOD

Do You Have A New Skylight To Install?

Customers should take into consideration maintaining a roof, flashing and shingles to avoid having skylight weakening that can be very harmful to your skylight and home. During the colder months, water typically freezes and expands in unmaintained skylights – which causes issues. This cycle can cause gaps to grow – and after a few seasons of continuous expansion and contraction, you 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 incorrect installation of what you have there now.  There are other potential drawbacks to a skylight. The likelihood of discovering that your skylight is leaking increases with its age. Sometimes the leak is more apparent. By allowing light to stream in from the outside, a skylight window brings ambiance that no other element can match. The advantages of installing a skylight in your Elwood dwelling are virtually limitless and the skylight technicians of Expressway can make sure that your problematic skylight is fixed with top-quality workmanship and is as gorgeous as possible.

The window that makes up the skylight must be fitted properly to the opening made for it. Or issues might occur within a few weeks or months when the flashing begins to fail due to water penetration. High humidity can also lead to the development of condensation that drips down the glass of your dwelling’s skylight. Luckily, an indoor humidity problem is easy to fix. An anti-fogging product can eliminate the condensation build-up and ensure that moisture will no longer condense. Still, it’s a good plan to get your skylight inspected by a certified skylight tech.

How Do Skylights Become Damaged?

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. 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. Luckily, this is an easy fix that may take only a few minutes.

Cracked glass may be the reason your skylight is leaking (like if you have recently had a hailstorm). Our team of skylight and Elwood 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 are perfect for kitchen and bathrooms, as they also aid in removing excess moisture and keep a constant flow of fresh air in the living area. Basically, a ventilated skylight is an addition of a new window onto the roof of your house.

Tubular skylights are a product that provides natural light to both residential and commercial indoor rooms . 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?
