Leaking Skylight Covered

Signs of a leaking skylight that has been covered by a plastic tarp. This is a good and a bad sign. The tarp over the skylight and not the roofing is a clear sign that the skylight itself is leaking and will need to be repaired or replaced. The roofing might not be damaged and that's the good sign.

If the plastic was running over the top of the roof ridge and a little bit wider around the skylight, this could be a sign that the roofing around the skylight might be damaged.

Again if the homeowner can give you some clues why the plastic tarp is over the skylight, why not ask to save yourself some time.

Skylights can be expensive to replace or repair.
