Clearing the Fog: Understanding Moisture Between Glass Panels on Skylights and How Republic Roofing Can Bring Clarity

Picture this: You glance up at your skylight, eager to invite natural light into your space, only to notice a mysterious fog or moisture trapped between the glass panels. What does it mean, and how can you restore the clarity of your skylight? In this blog post, we'll unravel the mystery of moisture between glass panels on skylights and explore how Republic Roofing can expertly replace your old skylight, bringing back the clear, unobstructed view you deserve.

Understanding Moisture Between Glass Panels

Moisture between the glass panels of a skylight is a common issue that can occur over time due to various factors:

Seal Failure

Skylights are typically designed with seals to keep moisture out. When these seals fail or degrade, it allows moisture to penetrate and become trapped between the glass layers.


Changes in temperature and humidity can lead to condensation forming between the skylight panels. This condensation can result from poor insulation, inadequate ventilation, or seal issues.

Aging and Wear

Skylights, like any other component of your home, can age and wear over time. The wear and tear may compromise the integrity of the seals, leading to moisture-related issues.

What Moisture Means for Your Skylight

Reduced Visibility

Moisture trapped between glass panels can obstruct your view, diminishing the effectiveness of your skylight in bringing natural light into your home.

Aesthetic Impact

The foggy appearance can detract from the aesthetic appeal of your skylight and the overall ambiance of the space.

Structural Concerns

Prolonged exposure to moisture can lead to structural issues, potentially impacting the skylight's frame and surrounding areas.
