Skylight Leaks


Skylight leaks can be a sign that you have a crack or hole in your skylight or are mounted to a wooden curb, which can also cause skylight leaks.  skylight-leaksskylight-leaksWhen your skylight leaks, it could simply be the flashing where your skylight ties into the roof. To fix the skylight leaks the shingles would be removed around the skylight. At that point, the old flashing is removed and replaced with new flashing. Then your roofer will need to re-shingle the roofing tiles around the skylight.


Skylights can be energy savers because they let daytime lighting shine through. Skylight replacement used most often is energy efficient glass. Skylights today are made with energy efficient materials. Skylight replacement uses economically priced glass, acrylic or low maintenance skylights. Some skylights are custom built for the home. Broken skylights and unsatisfactory skylight performance are good reasons to replace your existing skylight.

If your skylight has aged or is made of material that is not energy efficient then now is a good time to think about skylight replacement. Older skylights may be single glazed or single dome that are not energy efficient. The seals and glazing on an older skylight may become brittle and oxidized. This not only obstructs your view, keeping the light from shining through, but it also increases the chance of hail storm damaged and skylight leaks. Hailstorms in Texas are very common and can come on suddenly.
