Unlike traditional skylights, the ODL Tubular Skylight does not require cleaning and repainting.
The shape of the dome and flashing virtually eliminates the gathering of debris, which keeps the dome clean and makes the ODL Tubular Skylight completely maintenance free. All assemblies and joints have seals to help keep bugs and dirt from entering the tube.
Condensation occurs when humid air hits the surface of acrylic or glass. You either have to warm the surface, or reduce the humidity in your home. Wrapping insulation around the tube sections in the attic/air space reduces the opportunity for condensation to form by restricting cold air infiltration in the tube. To reduce humidity levels: vent dryers properly, run ventilation fans in your laundry room, bathroom, and kitchen. Cover damp crawl spaces with plastic or moisture barriers, and make sure gas heaters are properly ventilated.
