Skylights are wonderful architectural features to have in any building and with just about any architectural feature, proper skylight installation, regular maintenance and repairs need to be completed. Our skylight maintenance team can extend the life of your skylights through thorough inspection. We inspect your skylights for any evidence of leaks including staining or bulging and use thermographic infrared technology to assess the damaged areas. We address leaks as soon as we find them before any more damage to your skylight or roof is sustained.
Inspection of the gears in ventilated skylight systems, whether they are operated by hand or electric motor, are done to prevent future jams or even failure. For skylights that are out-of-reach, motor-controlled shades are a great option, but, like any motor, skylight motors need occasional maintenance and repair.
As the months get colder, it is essential to prepare for the Canadian winter and have your skylights inspected. It is also recommended to perform routine maintenance and inspections. Over time, dirt can build up on your skylights or solar tubes blocking light and leaving you with unsubstantial benefits.

Other common problems that can come from your skylight include condensation from poor insulation, too much heat, mold or mildew from constant dampness, your roof membrane could rot and air could get in resulting in decreased energy efficiency. Also too much daylight or a glare from a skylight can become a large issue especially in a professional building. The amount of sunlight and the glare are things that you should be able to control either by the location on the roof where your skylight is placed, the glaze or remote control options you have for your skylight. We have also seen many cases where the venting for the skylight no longer opens or the motor does not work.
With skylight maintenance you can keep your skylight working at its best 24/7.
