SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENTS NEAR OLD WESTBURY

Do You Need A New Skylight Installed?

Property owners should take into consideration maintaining a roof, flashing and shingles to avoid having skylight damage that can be very harmful to your skylight and dwelling. The most common need for a new skylight installation is from weakening when water makes its way under the gaps of the skylight itself, into the surrounding skylight material and eventually into the home itself. That’s why it’s important that the homeowner only hire skylight pros to install your skylight.  As a projecting roof feature, they are more given to problems like cracks or leaking than other places of a property’s roof. The likelihood of discovering that your skylight is leaking increases with its frequency of use. If you recognize your skylight is leaking, it’s paramount to take actual action. By allowing light to stream in from the sun, a skylight window brings atmosphere that no other thing can match. Replacement is not always the answer – especially if possible damage is small and localized.

The window that makes up the skylight must be fitted exactly 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 penetration. High humidity can also lead to the development of condensation that drips down the glass of your residence’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 objective to get your skylight inspected by a highly-skilled skylight tech.

How Do Skylights Become Damaged?

Our roofing experts 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 property and cause condensation. When insulation touches the glass, condensation usually results, which brings you right back to the problem from above. We could replace the skylight’s weather seals – which provide a waterproof barrier to further support all the elements that keep your roof leak-free.If your skylight is leaking, the weather seals may have aged and peeled thanks to exposure to the intense Long Island sun.

Cracked glass may be the reason your skylight is leaking (like if you have recently had a hailstorm). 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. Fixed skylights are one of the most popular types of skylights. 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 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?
