Does You Need to Repair Your Skylight?

Skylight Repair Calgary

Three signs to call a residential glass expert

Skylights offer a great view of the world and can be a wonderful addition to your home or office building, particularly in a thriving city like Calgary.

However, just like the rest of your roof, skylights are exposed to harsh weather elements and are vulnerable to damages caused by extreme weather or poor maintenance.

At Diamond Glass, we ensure that your skylight repairs are conducted safely and efficiently by an experienced residential glass team, restoring your skylights, roof and home to great condition.

How do I know if my skylight needs repair?

Skylights can produce a great deal of additional aesthetic appeal within any home environment, but their design means they are also perfectly positioned to be exposed to a range of potential damages.

A skylight in need of repair can sometimes require nothing more than a quick and simple fix. However, if you put off skylight repair, then your damages can become costly and, in some cases, risk the safety of you and your loved ones.

Our residential glass team is happy to inspect your skylight to determine whether or not it is damaged. However, you should also be on the lookout for certain signs including:

  1. Leaking

Leaking is one of the most obvious signs that you require a skylight repair. If you’ve been placing a bucket on the floor every time it rains for a while now, then you should seek professional residential glass services.

Sometimes, leaks can be difficult to spot and may represent a problem with the flashing that lines your skylight. Fortunately, if a leaking issue is caused by a small amount of damage to your flashing, our residential glass team can fix it relatively easily and inexpensively.

  1. Drafts

Although the most obvious symptom of improper sealing around your skylight might be the presence of leaking, another sign that you require a skylight repair is any drafts coming from the spaces around your skylight installation.

If you notice that the room where your skylight sits is generally colder or more drafty than the rest of your house, it may be worth calling a residential glass expert to analyze the problem.

  1. Cracks

The last sign that your skylight may require repairs is the presence of cracks. Even small chips in a skylight can quickly lead to huge problems, similar to the way windshield chips can worsen. Though the crack may seem small to begin with, over time it can quickly grow to consume the entire skylight.

Residential Glass Expert Tip: Other Things to Look Out For

Besides the three factors outlined above, you should also watch out for these additional signs that your skylight is damaged and requires repair:

  • Water stains
  • Discolored or bubbling drywall
  • Excessive condensation
  • Dampness

When it comes to skylight repairs, it is very important to remember that, in some cases, a damaged skylight isn’t just a nuisance - it’s also a hazard to your home.

When moisture seeps through the cracks into the structure of your roof, it can cause wood to rot and pave way for long-term mould damage, compromising your home and the health of your family.
