Is It Time For Skylight Repair?

Skylight

Skylights let natural light fill up your home and improve your home’s energy usage.

Skylights are fantastic additions to homes, adding natural light and energy efficiency to the property. If your property has one of these, you already understand the benefits of having one. Keeping them at their best should be as simple as any other window within your home. However, because skylights are elevated and out of reach, you may have a difficult time determining if your skylight needs service. There are a few indicators that won’t require a ladder that can help you determine if you should call for service.

Signs You Need Skylight Service

When it comes to a skylight, main issues can occur with the actual glass, the opening mechanism, or with the seals around the window itself. These three systems play critical roles in the function of your system and when damaged, should be replaced or repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your premises. Glass and mechanical issues can be seen as cracks or failure to open or close. For these, replacement may be necessary.

Failing seals, on the other hand, can become apparent in a few different ways. Have you noticed a sort of draft in the room? Your skylight seals may not be holding, allowing the outside weather to affect your home. This may not seem like a big deal, but it can also lead to condensation and eventually staining on the area around the skylight, which means that moisture is entering your home.
