Leaking Skylights And Water Damage

Mar 1, 2008
The houses that are being put up today have more open areas and let in more brightness to the residence than ever before. Sun rooms are so much in demand in recent years due to all the natural light they permit to come in and their ability to allow you to have sight of the outdoors without having to go outdoors. Another popular thing in new homes now is sky lights. Even many people that have older residences are putting them into their houses.

Many people will hire a contractor to install their new sun rooms, and most will do this for skylights as well. Skylights can be difficult to get in correctly. The most frequent problem with skylights is developing leaks if it rains. This is one issue you do not want to be a part of your new skylight. It can end up creating a lot of water damage on your house top and interior of the house. Unless you are an experienced do it your self person, this can be a chore you probably want to leave to a professional. In many places they could be subject to the local building codes and employing a licensed and insured expert should ensure the task is done correctly.

Any time that you get a builder, be sure that they are up to the job. License and insurance are always very important. You never want to let anyone who does not meet these obligations proceed putting holes in your housetop. You might be trying to save a little money, but in the end it can cost you a lot more. Check out the reputations of several installers before you choose one. You always want to get the best quote you can. Make sure their past customers were satisfied with the results and that they fixed any issues with the skylight that might have came up later. Frequently, defective work might not be noticed until later on. The builder should give you some kind of warranty for his work.

Even if a builder does provide you with a guarantee, it will come to an end sooner or later. Being that a skylight is on your housetop, over years it might be subjected to all kinds of wet weather. It must be on the check list of areas of your house that present possible water damage and it needs to be inspected ever so often. Locating somewhere that needs correcting before it starts to leak is best. Once water invades the wood on the roof, damage can happen pretty fast.
