3 Factors to Consider When Doing a Skylight Repair

Skylight Repair & Residential Glass Calgary

There’s nothing like natural light to transform the whole look and feel of a room. On average, skylights allow 30% more sunlight in than traditional windows and can make a huge positive impact on the ambiance of your home.

However, they do not last forever, and it’s inevitable that eventually, you will require a skylight repair or replacement.

Given that a damaged skylight can become a hazard to your family and home, it’s crucial to invest in the services of a residential glass expert if you suspect you need a skylight repair.


Signs Your Skylight Needs Repairs

Like many other structures, skylights can wear down and require repairs and/or replacements.

If you are unsure of whether your skylight is damaged, here are a few signs you should watch out for:

  • Damp ceiling
  • Water stains
  • Discolored or bubbling drywall near the ceiling
  • Excess condensation
  • Drafts
  • Cracks in the plastic or glass

REMEMBER: A damaged skylight is more than just a nuisance. It can pose a serious hazard to the health of your family and the structural integrity of your home. If you suspect you need a skylight repair, contact a residential glass expert immediately.


What to Consider When Getting a Skylight Repair

When preparing for a skylight repair project, there are several important things you should keep in mind to ensure a smooth and stress-free experience.

This includes:

1. Hiring a Professional Residential Glass Expert

If you require a skylight repair, it should be handled by a professional residential glass expert who has extensive experience with such projects.

This is important because:

  • An improperly installed/repaired skylight can be a serious safety hazard in your home
  • Residential glass experts know how to work from heights safely
  • Repairing such damages on your own without the proper tools and experience can be dangerous
  • A professional can fix the damage before it gets worse, saving you money in the long run

If your skylight needs repair or replacement, our friendly home improvement team can conduct a thorough roof inspection to look for skylight damages as well as other roofing issues, to ensure your home and family are protected.


2. Warranty

A skylight repair can become quite expensive so before you decide to proceed, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the product’s warranty conditions.

In some cases, the coverage may be void if you have an unauthorized repair. To prevent any unnecessary stress, make sure you fully understand the terms of your warranty before deciding on any skylight repair or replacement.

3. Repair vs Replacement

Before deciding on a skylight repair, be sure to ask your contractor about the cost. In some cases, it may be more cost-effective to do a replacement with a newer model.

While a skylight replacement can be slightly more expensive, it’s worth considering that a newer product will:

  • Deliver more light
  • Have improved technology
  • Have value-added features such as being energy efficient and watertight
  • Be easier to install
