It’s been raining and raining here all day. At around 6 am it was coming down so hard I could barely see out the window. It’s rained hard on and off all day, but I believe it rained the hardest early in the morning.
At least twice today we’ve seen the skylight in our enclosed porch leak. We installed it a couple of years and it’s been very solid without any problems except one leak after a very hard rain last year.
When we had a similar rain last year that fell directly down on the skylight ( a direction the rain doesn’t normally fall in) it leaked. Chris got up on the enclosed porch roof and did a bit of work sealing up the area we though the leak came from last year and we hadn’t had another problem until today.
This makes me wonder if we’ll ever put in another skylight. Chris would really like one upstairs in the ceiling over the staircase. I agree with him that it would help let more light into the north end of the house, but if it’s going to leak every once in a while like this one is then no … I don’t want it.
Does anyone have any repair ideas? We installed the skylight ourselves even adding extra sealant and rubber? around it to prevent leaks. I’m really disappointed that it’s leaking now.
