Having skylights in your Edmonton home can be a great way to make your home feel much lighter and brighter and will make your home feel much more welcoming. However, like other areas of your home, skylights are prone to getting worn out and need replacing as time goes on.
Some home owners think it is a good idea to try and replace a skylight in their home on by themselves or call in a cheap handyman to do the job. However, unless you know what you are doing this could end up costing you much more time and money in the end and even cause additional damage to your roof.
The best thing you can do is call in a roofing professional like Weatherproof roofing in Edmonton, Alberta. They will come and assess your skylight and offer you a free quote to fix it.
There are several reasons why a skylight could start leaking. Typically the flashing or sealing around the skylight has been damaged or eroded. Shingles around the skylight may become damaged due to excessive heat or storms.
Condensation can leak in to your skylight if it is damaged giving it a milky appearance, this means you will have to replace it.
