Having snow on the roof of your home typically is not a big issue. However, if you have skylights, you need to take some precautions and perform some winter preparation work. If skylights are not properly maintained, they could experience rotting, missing sealant, and damage flashing. Here are three tips to prep your skylights to minimize issues during the winter months.
Debris left to collect along skylights may end up scratching the glass and damaging the framing. The debris can also hide problems that should be addressed immediately. Remove dirt, grime, leaves, broken branches, and other types of windblown materials from the skylights. Once the debris is removed from around or on the skylight, you will have a clear perspective of its condition.
