Glazing leaks often occur during a systems lifespan due to age related dilapidation of components such as existing weather seals and gaskets or through blockages as a result of a lack of maintenance.

We ensure that all glazing leaks have an initial site survey to assess defects and the specific access requirements. Where required, we can conduct water tests to glazing systems to identify leak locations and conduct spot repairs. When an issue is identified, we will investigate the replacement of defective components and, where possible, propose upgrades to provide clients with long term peace of mind. Common glazing leak repairs include –

  • Replacement of defective silicone weather seals
  • Replacement of existing system gasketry
  • Application of a specialist butyl glazing tape
  • Replacement of defective components
  • Adaptations / introduction of new components to change system drainage

Our expertise in specialist access mean we can assist with glazing leaks regardless of location including -

  • overhead glazing leak repairs
  • Atrium leak repairs
  • curtain wall leak repairs
  • rooflight leak repairs

There can be a number of reasons for a glazing leak so it is important to ensure the structure is correctly surveyed and issues identified. Common causes for glazing leaks include –

  • Incorrect installation
  • Seal failure
  • Failure of system gasketry
  • Failure of system drainage
  • Damage to glazing system components.

If left unattended, these can cause further damage to the glazing system resulting in increased repair expenses and health and safety risks to building tenants.

Using our specialist access capabilities, Sky Access UK can assess and identify the causes of glazing leaks as well as produce a tailored repair package to resolve issues and eliminate associated risks. Not all glazing leaks are age related – they can sometimes be the result of incorrectly specified past repairs or the result of incorrect installation.

For peace of mind, we can also offer a warranty on completed works against leaks reoccurring. Contact our team to find out more.
