Why Install a Skylight?
Skylights are a great way to bring more natural light into your space, and that can help foster a more relaxing environment. You can reduce the amount of artificial light you need in the room with the skylight during the day, and it can help reduce your heating costs in the winter. Skylights can also help with ventilation in the home by letting the warm air out and helping keep the cool air in, which is important during the Texas summers. If you have an attic, a skylight can help with the light and ventilate the room, so your attic will not be stuffy.
If you are looking to sell your home, having a skylight can sometimes make a home sell faster. Many buyers want more natural light in their homes because it can help reduce their energy bills.
When Does a Skylight Need Repair?
While a skylight can last up to 15 years, sometimes they need repairs in their lifetime. There are some signs that indicate that something needs to be repaired in your skylight. If you notice these signs or any others, contact McAllen Valley Roofing Co. right away to ensure it is fixed before your roof gets damaged.
If you see condensation on or around it, the sealant may be damaged. Discoloration around it indicates a leak. If you see leaks in the skylight, there is damage. If you notice any cracks in the skylight, that is another good indication that it needs to be repaired quickly. After a hail storm or weather event, it is a good idea to have your skylight and roof inspected to ensure there is no damage that needs to be repaired.
