Skylights are windows built on the roof as part of the roof space. Installing skylights in your home is one way to allow natural light to get inside. Quality skylights can also add ambiance to most rooms.
Chase Roofing LLC, your trusted roofing expert, gives you tips on how to properly maintain and care for your skylights.
Choosing the Right Quality
During extreme weather conditions, cracks and breakage are inevitable, especially if your skylights are of inferior quality. When choosing your skylights prior to installation, it is most efficient to pick a brand that is trusted, tried, and tested over the years. This is to minimize, if not eliminate, the chances of breakage.
Regular cleaning of the debris from the skylights and the gutters ensures that there is proper ventilation which also prevents condensation on the skylights. Condensation increases your skylights’ deterioration which eventually leads to leaks and cracks.
Keen to Inspection and Repair
Have your trusted roofing experts do the regular inspection and maintenance. It is optimal to have your skylights inspected at least once a year. Make sure that there are no cracks; should there be any cracks observed, have them repaired immediately. Don’t wait for the cracks to get bigger. Smaller cracks are easier and more cost-effective to repair than the larger ones.
