How Do Skylights Become Damaged?

There are usually 4 major spots our pros 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 dwelling and cause condensation. When insulation touches the glass, condensation usually results, which brings you right back to the problem from above. Our pros 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 fix that may take only a few minutes.

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. 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 are perfect for kitchen and bathrooms, as they also aid in removing excess moisture and keep a constant flow of fresh air in the living area. In addition to that, a ventilated skylight also illuminates the space.

Tubular skylights are a product that provides natural light to both residential and commercial indoor rooms . 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. Tubular skylights are the best option when the roof space required for fixed or ventilated skylight is not available – or scarce.
