SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENTS NEAR ISLIP TERRACE

Do You Need A New Skylight Installed?

Clients should take into consideration maintaining your home’s roof, flashing and shingles to avoid having skylight problems that can be very problematic to your skylight and structure. During the colder months, water typically freezes and expands in unmaintained skylights – which causes damage. This harm can cause gaps to grow – and after a few seasons of continuous expansion and contraction, you will detect that the skylight will start to leak as it allows water to penetrate. Another reason you may need a new skylight installation is unsound installation of what you have there now.  There are several potential drawbacks to a skylight. The likelihood of discovering that your skylight is leaking increases with its lifespan. A customer might recognize their skylight is leaking every time it rains. By allowing light to stream in from the sun, a skylight window brings calm that no other thing can match. Replacement is not always the solution – especially if any danger is small and localized.

The window that makes up the skylight must be fitted precisely to the opening made for it. Or problems might occur within a few weeks or months when the flashing begins to fail due to water infiltration. High humidity can also lead to the development of condensation that drips down the glass of your residence’s skylight. Luckily, an indoor humidity complication 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 highly-skilled skylight tech.

How Do Skylights Become Damaged?

There are usually 4 major spots our roofing experts 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.

Skylight replacement is usually necessary when there are cracks in the glass. 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. Skylights come in a range of different shapes – including flat, arched, domed and pyramid.Fixed skylights are generally used in low-lit spots like attics and the stairwell. 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 property.

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. 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?
