A skylight will produce 'daylighting', this is the controlled admission of natural light, and is considered to be clean light. Artificial light produced by most fluorescent light and LED lighting produce and electrical flicker; electrical flicker is linked to various health issues. Daylighting is a pure form of light, and when controlled to not produce glare and keep out harmful UV rays, the best way to light up your home is a Skylight.
Skylight Inspection and Repair
Our licensed roof repair experts will first inspect your skylight for any cracks or leaks, checking the integrity of the skylight. The flashing is then inspected to check for any imperfections, and then the ventilation comes in into question. We then let you know what problems are found and what the solution is, so further damages are not incurred. There are several reasons a skylight may begin to leak. Most often skylights leak shortly after the roofing system was replaced, and the skylight and skylight flashing were not replaced. Leaking skylights are also caused by sealant that has aged and dried out, the flashing around the skylight has been installed improperly or there is heat loss around your skylight, causing ice damming on the roof when there is an excess of melting snow or ice on the roof. If you have a skylight that begins to leak after a rain or wind storm, shingles around the structure may be clogged with dirt, dead leaves, and other debris preventing water from running off the roof properly. A leaking skylight can also occur when there are problems in other areas of the roof, and the leak eventually makes its way to the skylight. Our experienced repair team will inspect your skylight and your roof carefully to determine the source of the leak and will ensure that no unnecessary repairs are made. Our honest service at Weatherproof Roofing will make sure the job is done right the first time, and at an affordable price.
Skylights should be replaced when the roof is replaced. Often when a roofing system is replaced and the same skylight is reused, whether or not the flashing is changed, the skylight generally has noticeable problems in a year or two after having the roof replacement complete. With this in mind, the type of roofing system which is installed on your roof and how the skylight installation is done will determine the longevity of your skylight.
If you do have a leaking skylight and your roofing system still has a good deal of life left, we can replace skylights and skylight flashing, as well the asphalt shingles or cedar shakes around your skylight, making sure your skylight is sealed and working properly. Skylights are beautiful and when installed properly can add great value to your home. Let the Edmonton Skylight Experts at Weatherproof Roofing take care of all your skylight needs.
