NEW SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENT NEAR MANORHAVEN
Expressway Specializes In Seamless Skylight Replacements
Clients should take into consideration maintaining a roof, flashing and shingles to avoid having skylight weakening that can be highly problematic to your skylight and residence. The most common need for a new skylight replacement is from damage when water penetrates its way under the gaps of the skylight itself, into the surrounding skylight material and eventually into the home itself. Another reason you may need a new skylight replacement is shoddy building of what you have there now. As a projecting roof feature, they are more apt to problems like cracks or leaking than other spots of a structure’s roof. The likelihood of discovering that your skylight is leaking increases with its age. If you recognize your skylight is leaking, it’s paramount to take actual action. By allowing light to stream in from the ceiling, a skylight window brings a calm that no other thing may match. However, if the skylight address could cost thousands of dollars, we can consider installing a new one.
The window that makes up the skylight must be fitted exactly to the opening made for it. Or weakening will occur within a few weeks or months when the flashing begins to fail due to water infiltration. High humidity could also lead to the development of condensation that drips down the glass of your structure’s skylight. 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 checked by a certified skylight tech.
Some Benefits Of A New Skylight
Skylights provide a better quality of light in the dwelling. Depending on their design, a skylight can offer a localized light to highlight a room, or light that is strewn uniformly over a wide area. Working in natural light is less stressful and healthier. Studies have shown that daylight positively affects physiological and psychological well-being, which increases productivity and health.

Do I Need My Skylight Replaced?
Our technicians may evaluate 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 test the skylight’s insulation – because without enough insulation – or no insulation at all – warm air may flow up effortlessly from inside the structure and cause condensation. When insulation touches the glass, condensation over and over results, which brings you right back to the problem from above. In some cases, rain may also infiltrate poorly insulated spaces, penetrating more insulation as it leaks through. Luckily, this is an easy repair 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 members of skylight and Manorhaven 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 arrays of skylights: ventilating (sometimes called “roof windows”), fixed and tubular.

Basically, a ventilated skylight is an addition of a new window onto the roof of your residence.
