Do You Need Your New Skylight Installed?

If you’d like to lessen the viable costs of a costly repair or replacement, it is fitting for you to keep your current skylight clean and well-maintained from the time of its initial installation. The most common need for a new skylight installation in your house is from weakening when water penetrates its way under the gaps of the skylight itself, into the surrounding skylight product and eventually into the house itself. Another reason you may need a new skylight installation is flawed craftsmanship of what you have there now.  As a projecting roof feature, they are more apt to problems like cracks or leaking than other places of a property’s roof. That’s not to say a skylight is more burdensome than they’re worth, but the harsh Great Neck Plaza, New York weather can inspire problems. Sometimes the leak is more overt.

Still, it’s a good solution to get your skylight inspected by a highly-trained skylight tech.

Installing A Brand New Skylight

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

We may even have to replace the entire skylight itself. 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 uses. Basically, a ventilated skylight is an addition of a new window onto the roof of your structure.

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. Yes, you can in fact get solar powered venting and solar powered blinds, all operated with a convenient remote control!
