Skylights leaking from rain damage

6/18/2021 (Permalink)

Skylights on Roof top when closely looking, the sealant at bottom of each skylight was worn and cracked, causing rain water to seep in to the interior ceiling of this home

Between long hot summers beating down on roof tops and the monsoon rain season heavily beating  water down on roofs after hot summers, roof tops take a major beating. This customer started experiencing leaks showing through to her white clean ceilings which made her wonder where the leaks were coming in from. 

She actually thought her overhead pipes in the ceiling for her plumbing was the cause when she reached out to her insurance company who suggested she contact SERVPRO right away for the fastest most effective response.

As we arrived and assessed the trouble, we found the seal around the skylights had become very warn and water was entering each time it rained, building up in her rafters, then seeping on through to her interior ceilings.

Her shingles were still healthy so our teams did a scraping of the old sealant all the way around each skylight and resealed her seems to prevent future leaks.

This new sealant is a much more weather durable product and this should last several years. Additionally, we removed damages drywall from stained interior and replaced with new drywall, re-textured, painted and repaired her interior to new condition.
