Clifton Park Skylights
Bear in mind that if you have drip on the inside of your Clifton Park Skylights it does not necessarily mean you have a leaky skylight and condensation can often be the cause of sleepless nights and panicking homeowners. This is especially true in extreme conditions. Dryers, washing machines, hot baths and even the occupants of the home can cause condensation to build up on the inside of your skylight and this will inevitably drip off giving the impression that you have a leaky skylight.
This becomes even more pertinent when the weather gets colder outside. A build up of ice or snow on the outside of your skylight is a sure fire way to promote condensation on the inside of your Clifton Park Skylights and even a small crack means that this condensation can be in between the two panes of glass if you have double glazing.
The damage a leaky skylight can cause will be most easily fixed by our High Peak Skylights contractors here in the Clifton Park, NY area.
A leaky skylight causes relatively minimal damage in the short term, however over the long term this damage can become significant so you should make sure that the drops you saw coming off your skylight are actually condensation and not the first tell tale signs of a leak. You may end up having to replace wallpaper, carpets and worse still making structural repairs to the inside of your house (although only usually in extreme circumstances). A leaky skylight may also be indicative that you have bigger problems with your roof so you should get someone out to check it as soon as possible.

Clifton Park Skylights Repair and Replacement
Although skylights can be a major energy liability in a home, the good news is that there are a number of things homeowners can do to control the light coming in.
Putting window film on skylights, can do a good job of cutting out the direct solar beams. This will heat the skylight, and the heat can make the glazing to which it is attached get rather hot. Curbing this heat coming into your home is best done by adding tinting film to your skylight.
Clifton Park Solar Skylights
A Tubular skylight, also known as a solar tube or sun tunnel, is a type of tubular day lighting device (TDD). They are straight, curved, or jointed skylights that deliver natural light into a home or building. They give the effect of recessed lighting fixtures and blend well with any home decor.
Clifton Park tubular skylights are popular because they are easier to install than conventional ones and cost less too.
