SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENT BECAUSE OF LEAKS
Skylight replacement is needed if your skylight has a crack or a hole in it. Skylight replacement in the Tarrant County and surrounding areas usually involves a skylight that is mounted to a wooden curb. Replacing these skylights without disturbing the roof flashing or skylight well is fairly common.
Sometimes it will look like your skylight is leaking but it could be the flashing where your skylight ties into the roof. In order to properly fix the leak is to remove the shingles around the skylight, your roofing contractor will need to remove the old flashing and replace it with new flashing. Then your roofer will need to re-shingle the roofing tiles around the skylight.
SAVE ENERGY WITH SKYLIGHT REPLACEMENT
Skylights can be energy saving because they are used as lights during the daytime. Skylight replacement most common are energy efficient glass, 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 which are not energy efficient as the skylights today made with energy efficient materials. 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 leaking. Hail storms in the Tarrant and surrounding counties are very common and can come on suddenly.
