Condensation - Rooflights and Skylights

domeWhen warm, moist air meets cold surfaces, condensation occurs. The risk of condensation at skylight level is greater as warm air rises. Double or triple skin Thermadomes and Therma-kerb insulated upstands minimise the risk of condensation, as does appropriate ventilation. No guarantee can be provided against the development of condensation as temperature or humidity levels can never be controlled.
