This skylight has a problem with leaks.
We will be returning to complete a wet seal on the remaining glass units of the pyramid skylight. 3/11/21
We were asked by managers of the Embassy Suites by Hilton Charlotte Concord Golf Resort & Spa to inspect the atrium skylight to determine the source of their problems and to come up with solutions.
A sampling of the problems we found.
Upon inspection, numerous problems were discovered which could be summed up as the deterioration of the silicone sealant. Our recommendation was to perform a wet seal of the top four bays of the pyramid skylight.
A wet seal will solve many of the problems.
The managers accepted our bid and the wet seal was begun promptly. A wet seal consists of clearing the deteriorated sealant and using proper techniques to apply new Dow Corning structural sealant to the system.
A typical problem is wet sealed:
- Strip the old caulking and clean glass.
- Mask and caulk the seam.
- When the caulk is set, strip the masking tape.
- Rinse and repeat!
