SKYLIGHTS LEAKING IN COLD - CHICAGO WESTERN SUBURBS

Thursday, February 27, 2014

 

 

Are your skylight windows fogging up, leaking and showing signs of condensation during these friged months? It's no surprise to anyone, the Chicago land and western suburbs are experiencing the worst winter in decades and top 5 worst ever. Our homes are constantly being tested and their strength compromised. We're seeing several cases of skylights experiencing condensation, with signs of sweating and leakiness. Yes, it's normal for warm air to rise and make contact with a cold surface (the skylight glass), creating the foggy, sweating affect. The big worry is routing drywall, mildew, deteriorating insulation, floor damage and future skylight and/or roof leaking. That being said, The Ram has a simple DIY list of things you can do to help prevent this.

 

The colder it is outside the lower the humidity setting on your humidifier and furnace should be. Check your humidity setting.

 

Turn on a ceiling fan close to the skylight to help keep the heat from rising to the skylight(s).

 

During the extreme cold, run the exhaust fan in the nearest bathroom and/or kitchen.

 

CALL THE RAM FOR A FULL INSPECTION AND CONSULTATION - $150 for a thorough skylight, roof, and attic inspection.

Q: Besides finances, what else should a young professional considering home ownership be thinking about before making the biggest decision of their life.
Therefore you should yourself research about the property before buying.
With more kids going into the place, unsecured smaller-sized cottages are being
changed to create way for larger houses that come with contemporary benefits.
