The Challenge

The Client approached Mr. Roof Repair with concerns about a leak coming from their skylight. They also had some work done within their attic space recently and wanted to make sure that everything looked ok.

The Solution

Upon inspection, Mr. Roof Repairs Roofing Specialist (RS) Team confirmed that the conditions within the attic space were good. The skylight however was in poor condition. The skylight was not flashed properly, and this was causing it to leak. There was also condensation present between the panes of glass, due to failed seals.

During the assessment it was also noted that the home was cross ventilated. Some of the exhaust vents were installed on opposite sides of the roof, which was rendering the system inefficient.

It was recommended that the skylight and flashing be replaced, and the cross ventilation be corrected. A quote was provided to this effect. It was accepted and work commenced.
