Do I Need My Skylight Replaced?

There are usually 4 major spots our roofing experts 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 dwelling 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. Luckily, this is an easy fix that may take only a few minutes.
