SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENTS NEAR SHELTER ISLAND HEIGHTS

Do You Have A New Skylight To Install?

Customers should take into consideration maintaining the roof, flashing and shingles to avoid having skylight problems that can be very damaging to your skylight and dwelling. The most common need for a new skylight installation is from problems when water makes 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 installation is flawed building of what you have there now.  As a projecting roof feature, they are more susceptible to problems like cracks or leaking than other areas of a dwelling’s roof. The likelihood of discovering that your skylight is leaking increases with its lifespan. Sometimes the complication is more overt. A skylight can truly add excellent ambiance to a location. More often than not, skylights can be fixed.

The window that makes up the skylight must be fitted precisely to the opening made for it. Or trouble might occur within a few weeks or months when the flashing begins to fail due to water infiltration. The fight between indoor and outdoor temperatures creates condensation. Luckily, an indoor humidity problem is easy to fix. An anti-fogging product can eliminate the condensation build-up and ensure that moisture will no longer condense. Still, it’s a good thought to get your skylight inspected by a highly-trained skylight tech.

Installing A Brand New Skylight

Our technicians 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. 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. In some cases, rain can also infiltrate poorly insulated spaces, destroying more insulation as it leaks through. If your skylight is leaking, the weather seals may have aged and peeled thanks to exposure to the intense Long Island sun.

Small hailstones often cause chipping. Our team of skylight and Shelter Island Heights 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. 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 serve many objectives. 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 spaces . 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. Not only that, you can have blinds installed to limit the amount of light and glare in a room whenever you would like.
