COMMON SKYLIGHT ISSUES

Among the most common skylight problems are leaks and condensation. The causes may vary from one case to another, but the root of the problem is most often poor workmanship and a lack of knowledge on skylight installation.

Here are the most common skylight problems and their possible causes:

Leaking

Leaking can be seen either within the skylight tunnel or where the skylight connects to the top of the drywall up at the top of the skylight tunnel. This is typically a result of a poor roofing connection or a poorly manufactured skylight window.

Condensation, slow drips or enlarging stains

This symptom's main culprits are lack of airflow

(ie. no bathroom fan), or even a lack of energy efficiency.

Overwhelming heat on the upper floors

This is caused by a poor-quality old dome that has no R-Value that can amplify the heat in the summertime.

Cold draft in the winter

In cases when you feel drafts in the room with a skylight, it’s because the proper sealing hadn’t been done when installing the skylight.

Typically, skylight issues don’t require much work to be done, thus the repairs can be done quickly. For example, repairing damaged surrounding shingles or sealing small gaps in the structure.

In some cases just a simple skylight swap is needed, where we remove the existing skylight, clean the top of the curb, then supply and install the new unit.

Quite often we would tarp off the skylight in the interim until we come to do a full replacement.
