SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENTS NEAR OYSTER BAY

Do You Need Your New Skylight Installed?

If you’d like to lessen the viable costs of a costly fix 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 frequent need for a new skylight installation in your house is from problems when water penetrates its way under the gaps of the skylight itself, into the surrounding skylight flashing and eventually into the residence itself. Another reason you may need a new skylight installation is unsound installation of what you have there now.  There are other potential drawbacks to a skylight. That’s not to say a skylight is more burdensome than they’re worth, but the harsh Oyster Bay, New York weather can expedite breakage. Sometimes the breakage is more overt. No matter what the time of year, a skylight is a great and cost-effective way to let imperitive natural light into your your home. Replacement is not always the solution – especially if a leak is small and localized.

The window that makes up the skylight must be fitted properly to the opening made for it. If the skylight fitting is not fitted correctly, you may experience leaks directly. The clash between indoor and outdoor temperatures creates condensation. Damage is more likely if you need to run your dwelling’s air conditioner frequently to make your house even more comfortable. Still, it’s a good move to get your skylight inspected by a highly-trained skylight tech.

Installing A Brand New Skylight

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

Skylight replacement is usually necessary when there are cracks in the glass. Our team of skylight and Oyster Bay 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. Fixed skylights are generally used in low-lit areas like attics and the stairwell. Ventilated skylights serve many uses. In addition to that, a ventilated skylight also illuminates the area.

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