What Causes a Skylight to Leak?

Your beautiful skylights are supposed to let in the light, not the water but the fact that there’s water seeping in around your skylights isn’t cause for panic. First do not call a roofer or general contractor but rather a Skylight Specialist. The following list may help simplify the emergency skylights repair process (if repair is needed) by giving you some idea of what may have caused

  • Your Skylights aren’t Actually Leaking – Huh? Leaking implies something is structurally wrong. Sometimes though, water is coming in because the skylights simply aren’t closed fully or properly. The more people in your home the better the chance someone left the skylight slightly ajar and that’s the reason for the dripping water.
  • They’re Not Actually Leaking II – Sometimes a few drips is not indicative of anything other than condensation on the inside of the pane. Make sure that’s not the case before calling for emergency skylights repair.
  • Faulty Installation – If you’ve just had your skylights installed or your roof installed and you notice dripping water your first call should be to a skylight specialist. (after checking that the skylights are closed and the drips are not condensation)
  • Faulty Flashing – Anything that penetrates your roof is surrounded by flashing to prevent water leaking in around the margins, that includes residential skylights.
    Poorly installed, old or damaged flashing is a common cause for water leaking in around a skylight.
  • Cracked Panes – Storms, ice or heavy wet snow can send tree branches crashing down onto your roof. If your area was recently subjected to a violent storm or heavy snowfall your skylight may have been compromised by falling debris.
  • Recent Roof Work – If you recently had the roofer over to make repairs or re-shingle your roof a wayward nail or dropped piece of equipment may have caused damage to the window pane or flashing or even worse an inexperienced roofer may have inadvertently damaged your skylight.
