How to Fix a Leaky Skylight and Improve Energy Efficiency


Skylights are a great way to bring natural light into a home, but they can also be a source of frustration when they start to leak. One of our customers in Burnaby was dealing with just such a problem - their skylight had been leaking for some time, and previous repairs had not been able to fix the issue.

Upon inspection, we discovered that the problem was twofold. First, the pan flashing around the skylight was blocked with debris, which was causing water to seep in and leak through the roof. Second, the skylight itself was leaking, due to a faulty seal.

We started by clearing out the debris from the pan flashing and making sure it was properly sealed and the containment lip straightened. This took care of the first issue and stopped the water from seeping in. Next, we replaced the old skylight with a new one. Not only did this fix the leaking issue, but it also improved energy efficiency, as the new skylight had better insulation with the agron gas between the panes and a more secure seal.
