Is my skylight leaking?

Mike Gurley

Determining whether there actually is a leak in your skylight is the first step in fixing the leak. You can tell if your skylight is leaking by looking for these manifestations and clues that you’ll find indoors.

First, you need to watch out for leak stains and see where the stains are coming from. Trace the stains all the way to the top to determine the possible location of the leak. Second, you need to know the difference between stains that are the result of excessive condensation or stains coming from an actual leak. You should also look at the situation outdoors to determine if your skylight is leaking or not. You can check the roof cement surrounding the skylight and look for openings and cracks, or damages in the structure that brings together the roof and the skylight.
