Skylight Leaks  
     
  Skylights are available in many styles and shapes with a host of different flashing systems for achieving a water tight seal. Skylight leaks can manifest themselves in a variety of forms.  Many times homeowners will first realize they have a skylight leak by finding water stained ceilings or a puddle of water on the floor below a skylight. Taking the time for a little detective work on leaking skylights can go a long way toward a permanent solution.

  Causes of Skylight Leaks

Many skylight leaks begin when water makes its way under gaps in the skylight itself, into the flashing around the skylight, or the flat roof membrane that goes up the curb. When this water freezes, it expands causing the gap to expand. After a few seasons of this expansion and contraction, your skylight will start to leak.

Another cause of skylight leaks is improper installation. Improper flashing installation accounts for the large majority of skylight leaks which is why it is always recommended that a professional install any type of skylight.
