NEW SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENT NEAR WEST BABYLON
Does Your residence require a New Skylight To Be Installed?
Customers should take into consideration maintaining a roof, flashing and shingles to avoid having skylight problems that can be very dangerous to your skylight and residence. During the colder months, water typically freezes and expands in unmaintained skylights – which causes problems. This harm will cause gaps to grow – and after a few seasons of continuous expansion and contraction, you may see that the skylight may start to leak as it allows water to intrude. That’s why it’s paramount that the property owner only hire skylight pros to install your skylight. As a projecting roof feature, they are more apt to problems like cracks or leaking than other spots of a property’s roof. The likelihood of discovering that your skylight is leaking increases with its lifespan. Sometimes the harm is more overt. No matter what the time of year, a skylight is a prime and cost-effective way to let beautiful natural light into your your structure. However, if the skylight repair could cost thousands of dollars, we will consider constructing a new one.
The window that makes up the skylight must be fitted exactly to the opening made for it. Or issues can occur within a few weeks or months when the flashing begins to fail due to water penetration. High humidity will also lead to the development of condensation that drips down the glass of your residence’s skylight. Complication is more likely if you need to run your property’s air conditioner frequently to make your home even more comfortable. Still, it’s a good thought to get your skylight checked by a professional skylight tech.

Do I Need My Skylight Replaced?
There are often four major spots our pros look first to fix that leaky skylight of yours. We’ll maintain the skylight’s flashing – which is the metal component installed specifically to prevent projecting roof elements from developing leaks around their sides.
We’ll check the skylight’s insulation – because without enough insulation – or no insulation at all – warm air will flow up seamlessly 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 may also infiltrate poorly insulated spaces, penetrating 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.
Cracked glass may be the reason your skylight is leaking (like if you have recently had a hailstorm). Our team of skylight and West Babylon 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. Fixed skylights are generally used in low-lit areas like attics and the stairwell. Ventilated skylights act as a source of ventilation of air and light. In addition to that, a ventilated skylight also illuminates the area.
