How to Fix a Skylight

What does it require to fix a skylight so it won’t leak?

The single biggest factor to insure your skylight won’t leak is to first determine if it is the flashing or the skylight. If water seems to seep right out of the ceiling it is probably the flashing leaking, if it is running down the inside of the interior, starting at the skylight, it is probably the skylight. You can always cover the skylight to test during the next moisture whether the leak has stopped or not. Once it is determined where the leak is then replace the problem. DO NOT try and repair part of the flashing, or apply any kind of tar or mastic. Take our word for it, total replacement from a qualified contractor, with references, will solve the problem.
