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!

The project progresses:
