Styles of Skylights We Install
Our pros will maintain 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 check the skylight’s flashing – which is the metal component installed specifically to prevent projecting roof elements from developing leaks around their sides.
We’ll maintain the skylight’s insulation – because without enough insulation – or no insulation at all – warm air can flow up easily from inside the residence and cause condensation. When insulation touches the glass, condensation many a time results, which brings you right back to the problem from above. In some cases, rain could also infiltrate poorly insulated spaces, damaging 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.
