Do You Have A New Skylight To Install?

If you’d like to reduce the potential costs of a high address or replacement, it is best for you to keep your current skylight clean and well-maintained from the time of its initial installation. During the frigid months, water typically gets in, then freezes and expands in unmaintained skylights – which causes issues.

Types of Skylights We Install

There are usually 4 major sections we 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 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. Luckily, this is an easy fix that may take only a few minutes.

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 places. 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.
