Expressway Specializes In Skylight Installations

Customers should take into consideration maintaining the roof, flashing and shingles to avoid having skylight harm that can be very dangerous to your skylight and dwelling. During the colder months, water typically freezes and expands in unmaintained skylights – which causes issues. This cycle can cause gaps to grow – and after a few seasons of continuous expansion and contraction, you will see that the skylight will start to leak as it allows water to penetrate. That’s why it’s important that the client only hire skylight technicians to install your skylight.  As a projecting roof feature, they are more given to problems like cracks or leaking than other spots of a residence’s roof. That’s not to say a skylight is more trouble than they’re worth, but the harsh Sayville, New York weather can invite complications. A homeowner might notice their skylight is leaking every time it rains. No matter what the time of year, a skylight is a great and cost-effective way to let pertinent natural light into your your home. Replacement is not always the answer – especially if possible damage 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 penetration. High humidity can also lead to the development of condensation that drips down the glass of your home’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 idea to get your skylight inspected by a certified skylight tech.

Do I Need My Skylight Replaced?

There are usually 4 major places our technicians look first to fix that leaky skylight of yours. We’ll inspect the skylight’s flashing – which is the metal component installed specifically to prevent projecting roof elements from developing leaks around their sides.

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. Our roofing experts 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. 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. Just like their name indicates, fixed skylights are ‘fixed’ and do not open for air ventilation. Basically, they’re totally sealed closed on the roof. 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 structure.

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. Yes, you can in fact get solar powered venting and solar powered blinds, all operated with a convenient remote control!
