Lake Forest Skylight Repair

Don't be fooled into thinking that your leaking skylight can be fixed with some quick caulking job. It's not going to happen. Sure, the sealant around your skylight flashing is very important. But, there's much more to keeping water from leaking around your skylight.

South County Roofing has a lot of experience when it comes to fixing skylight or replacing them completely when they are cracked or broken. We have fixed hundreds of skylights over the years and we have skylight repair and replacement down to a science.

We can remove all of the roofing tiles around the skylight, then remove the skylight lid itself, take apart all the skylight flashing, and cut out all the damaged waterproofing. This is how we do it.

After removing everything we can then properly inspect and repair the deck for any dry rot or mold damage. You don't want to be left with dangerous mold around your skylight and we will make sure you're not. South County Roofing specializes in repairing leaking skylight in Lake Forest and all the surrounding areas in Orange County.

We know how to remove all of the skylight flashing and felt around the skylight. Make sure we carefully handle your tile so we do not damage them. With everything removed we will inspect the decking, make any necessary repairs, check for popped up nails that can damage the new repair, install new waterproofing, flashing, and reset the tiles back to their original condition.

Skylight Replacements and Solar Tubes for Lake Forest

Skylights typically last about twenty years and after that time they should be replaced. Signs that your skylight is old and should be replaced are: cracked glass, water leaking from the inside (just under the domed part).

You do have a few options to consider when replacing your skylight. Some skylights are more energy efficient and some skylight tints block more light than others. These are things you should consider before having a contractor out to your home.

Skylights have either one layer of acrylic or glass used for a covering. That would be known as a single dome (single layer of acrylic or glass) or double domed (double layer of acrylic or glass). The double domed skylight is better because it is more insulated but will cost slightly more.

You can also get them in a flat glass. The flat glass more resembles a window. Both the flat glass and the acrylic domed skylight can be tinted. Skylights can even be purchased so that they can be opened but, be prepared for the cost per unit to double if you want it to be able to open up. An openable or operable skylight can be helpful for letting out hot air of a taller room.

Tubular skylights are great for lighting up a dark bathroom or hallway. If your Lake Forest home has some darn areas you would like brightened up these are a great option and they can be installed within a couple of hours.

Tubular skylights are available in sizes that are slightly larger than a recessed light and we can install them in pretty much any room as long as the attic space directly above where you want to locate the solar tune is clear. If you need a skylight or tubular skylight replaced, installed, or repaired then give us a call.
