Skylight Install, Replace or Repair - Brampton, ON
Need More Light?
Skylights are a fantastic way to bring more natural light into a building. They are great for both Energy-Saving and aesthetic purposes, and they can really improve a space. If you’re thinking about having a skylight installed, learn more about what you need to know before the installation so you can choose the perfect one for your home or office.
Deciding on a Skylight
Today, there are numerous types of skylights available to pick from. A roofer can help you choose the perfect one for your space depending on your needs and the space available for the light. Options include Venting skylights, for fresh air and to allow air to be released as well as moisture balance for your home or office. Fixed skylights, that help capture the natural light from the sun and making the room brighter all around. Finally there are Tubular skylights, which are best for spots that are too large to have a Venting or a Fixed skylight. If you’re worried about problems that used to be common with older skylights, talk to the contractor about a no-leak skylight, so you don’t have anything to worry about once it’s installed.
Once you have chosen the skylight and decided where it will go, the installation can begin. As the skylight is being put into the roof, it does require being on the roof. For your safety, it’s best to have a professional handle the installation. Plus, they’ll make sure everything is done properly, so you don’t have to worry about any leaks or other issues. It is also at times recommended to out up skylight blinds to help with too much sun coming in and making the home or office hot. In the winter season it is a welcomed heating source to have. The entire installation should not take long to complete.
Skylight Replacement or Repair
If you already have a skylight and you’ve noticed any issues, skylight repairs can be done in most cases such as
re-sealing. It costs less than a replacement skylight but often the age of the existing one may not allow us to reseal it any more. When a repair can’t be done, the skylight can be replaced with a new one. Some of the signs of issues to look out for include water stains on the ceiling, drafts, condensation, or cracked glass. If any of these concerns are detected, it’s best to call a professional immediately to have the skylight repaired or replaced. When replacing, it’s possible to choose a newer type of skylight that’s going to be far more durable and less likely to have any issues.
