Choose Absolute Construction Group LLC for Your Skylight Repairs
Skylights are lovely additions in any home. Not only do they add value to your home, but they make the space brighter and appear more open. However, despite their aesthetic appeal, skylights are notorious for leaking and condensation issues. Even a minor leak can cause water damage to the roof, ceiling materials, insulation, and the interior of the home beneath the leak. Faulty flashing, the thin piece of sheet metal installed around roofing protrusions, is often to blame, but this is not always the case.
Absolute Construction Group LLC can help with skylight repair in Boston, MA. We can diagnose problem areas and then determine whether a repair or skylight replacement is in order. There are three main types of skylights — tubular, fixed, and ventilated — and we service them all. To learn more about our services or to book a consultation, dial 617-481-1725 today.
Common Problems Plaguing Skylights
Leaks are the most common problem when it comes to skylights. Usually, leaks occur when flashing between the roof and frame loosens. Corroded window frames can also cause leaks. Another very common issue is fog and/or condensation. Not only does this detract from the look of the skylight, but it could be an indication of a more serious problem. Furthermore, condensation can cause mold growth along your window panes. Again, flashing, seals, and frames are typically to blame when it comes to skylight condensation.
Because skylights are windows, they allow unwanted heat to enter the home in the summer and loss of heat during the winter. If this is the problem with your unit, roofing professionals will often reseal the unit, replace the metal flashing, or apply weather stripping.
Hail, tree branches, and other debris can also cause your skylights to crack. Sometimes the crack can be repaired, but sometimes, total skylight replacement is necessary. Fortunately, when it comes to hail damage and other unforeseen natural circumstances, your home insurance will often cover some or all the cost of repairs, so be sure to reach out to them as well.
