Reason Why You Skylight May Leak:
Loose or damaged fasteners: Roofing nails can become rusty or loose from the elements allowing water to seep behind them. All nails should be replaced and protected by waterproof roofing cement.
Poor flashing: Flashing around the skylight must be secured tightly and flush with the roof.
Glass fractures: Over time the skylight can develop micro cracks and fractures leading to water leaking in. Some small cracks can be repaired. If there are a large number of cracks this may lead to a new skylight replacement.
Sealant failure: The constant stretching from the elements cause expanding and contracting of the sealants, leading to gaps and cracks.
