Skylight Leak Repair Specialist
We have been repairing leaky skylights over 30 years
There are many brands, sizes, and shapes of skylights. There are many reasons for a skylight to leak. The two most common place for the leaks to occur is between the frame and the glass and also the flashing.
Every brand has its way of being repaired. Some skylights have a flat glass surface, and some have a domed plexiglass surface.
Troubleshooting what causes the leak on the skylight is the hard part. It is never evident. The glass must be separated from the frame to be able to replace the gasket. This leak repair is tedious and costly.

Glass skylights leak repair
Glass skylights are harder to make a leak repair on. There is a gasket between the metal frame and the glass of the skylight. The frame is factory assembled and sometimes not possible to be removed. Many times the cost of repairing a leaky skylight outways the cost of installing a new one. The gasket is not replaceable and therefore a new skylight must be installed.
Glass Skylight leak repair flashing
The other area where it can leak is on the flashing. When the rubber membrane separates from the flashing water can leak in. This type of leak repair on a skylight is relatively easy and not too costly.
Any roofing contractor that is familiar with that particular roofing system can make a repair.
Plexiglass Dome Skylights
Plexiglass dome skylights will crack over time causing leaks. The best way to make a leak repair is to replace the top part of the skylight. Some brands allow you to replace the plexiglass by itself. Skylight leak repairs are possible in some case when there is a gasket between the dome and the frame.

Leak Repairs on an EPDM Rubber Roof
The seams on an EPDM Rubber Roofs will often separate due to the adhesive failure. Repairing leaks in these rubber roof are common.Roof leak repair is not easy on an EPDM roof because it is hard to detect what causes the leak. We have made 1000’s of roof leak repairs on EPDM rubber roofs. In its forty years of existence, the adhesives have been the main culprit of causing roof leaks. The best way to repair the seams on these EPDM Rubber Roofs is to install a cover tape over every seam.
The other reason why so many repairs are needed is that the caulking used to cover the edge of every seam dries out and shrink making a small void area where two overlapping seams meet. To make a leak repair, in this case, all the caulking has to be removed, and a new beat of caulking applied.
Petroleum based lap sealer is used to make these leak repairs.
Leak Repairs on a TPO Vinyl Roof
TPO roofing requires a heat gun to fuse the seams together. Sometimes when this heat is applied, weather conditions change causing the gun not to apply the proper heat to the seam for melting. This seam can separate and cause a roof leak. To find the leaky area a sharp probe is used against the seam to find a separation or weak spot. After identifying this weak area, a patch is installed with a heat gun. Leak repairs on TPO roofs are not easily done and can be costly.
