How Do Skylights Become Alarming?
Our roofing experts may check 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. 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 evaluate the skylight’s insulation – because without enough insulation – or no insulation at all – warm air can flow up freely from inside the residence and cause condensation. When insulation touches the glass, condensation usually results, which brings you right back to the problem from above. Our technicians could replace the skylight’s weather seals – which provide a waterproof barrier to further support all the elements that keep your roof leak-free.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. Let us fix your leaking skylight today! There are many new skylight options to choose from with modern skylights. Skylights come in a range of different shapes – including flat, arched, domed and pyramid. 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 may be best for kitchens and bathrooms, as they also aid in removing excess humidity and keep a constant flow of fresh air in the living area. In addition to that, a ventilated skylight also illuminates the area.
