We’ve seen it all when it comes to failing skylights! Whether in a high rise structure or single family home, most skylights are doomed to fail if not installed and maintained properly. Due to this failure history, skylights are not as common as they used to be. But that doesn’t have to be the case as they are great architectural features and if installed and maintained correctly they can provide long term enjoyment.
We have extensive experience with the many skylight installations and flashing systems that are used to integrate the skylight into the roof system.
We take a systematic approach in our leak detection and repair process and this is what you can expect when choosing our company:
• A visual inspection of the suspect skylight assembly and the surrounding roof system by our on staff forensic specialist
• We will rappell the subject skylight area if necessary for visual inspection
• Review of architectural and engineering blueprints (if available)
• Determination of scope of work necessary to repair
• Review of the existing skylight manufacturers specifications
• Develop the construction schedule based on our customer’s time parameters
Once all the work has been scoped and scheduled and work is ready to begin, we take extensive steps to ensure safety of our field mechanics and the public. We also protect the surrounding areas from construction debris and dust.
If you suspect your skylight is failing, look for these tell-tale signs below, and if you need give us a call and a specialist would be glad to come out to review and discuss at your convenience. We also provide emergency services so we can solve your problem quickly.
• Surrounding drywall bubbling, warping or discoloration
• Water stains give clues as to the source of any leak. Are stains at the top or bottom of the skylight unit?
• Some condensation collection is normal, but look for excessive moisture as improper installation of the skylight can leave the condensation channels useless
• Failing interior architectural wall finishes
